CW Released a Trailer for the Charmed Reboot

I wasn’t going to post anything about the the trailer for the Charmed reboot that was posted today, but I decided that I needed to write out my thoughts about this reboot. Honestly, after watching the trailer, I’m just not sure how I feel about it.

I really wasn’t happy when it was first announced that it was getting rebooted in the first place because I just didn’t understand why? Like if you want to make a witch show, go ahead. Why does it have to be a reboot of Charmed?

After watching the trailer I still stand by that statement. I think if this show wasn’t attached to Charmed it would be great, but watching the trailer all I saw were the similarities with the original. The house looked the same, the way they get their powers was pretty much the same, their powers were almost the same, it just felt too similar. You’d think the CW would want their new version of Charmed to stand out and not be compared to the original, but yet they copied so much.

Even though I have my reservations, I’m still going to give it a chance because I loved Charmed, Madeleine Mantock is a part of this cast (and I loved her in Into the Badlands), and I want to support her. I also want a Charmed show for my mom and I to watch again like we used to with the original.

I’m honestly hoping the similarities end after the first episode (which I’m pretty sure was most of the trailer) because that’s the only way this reboot is going to work. It can’t copy the original or else it will fail. Plain and simple.

Book Review: The 100 by Kass Morgan

Going into this book after watching four seasons of the TV show, at first, was very difficult. The first couple chapters I just kept comparing the book to the show, but the more I read the more I realized that I had to look at the show and book as completely different things. There are some elements to the show that I like more than the book and vice versa.

Book Review – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story by Alexander Freed

I really enjoyed Rogue One and thought Alexander Freed did a good job at fleshing out the story and characters even more in this adaptation of the film. I think one of the reasons it took me so long to read this book was because I’ve seen the movie multiple times and since I already knew what was going to happen in the plot, I just wanted everything to progress faster, but since this was a novel that wasn’t the case.
That in no way means that this book is slow paced, it’s just a personal thing with me as a reader. So, I think that plus the “Supplemental Data” sections were what brought this book down for me. It’s still a well executed book that gives you great insight into the minds of these characters and explores their connections even more than they were in the film.
Overall, I did enjoy Rogue One: A Star Wars Story by Alexander Freed and I’d give it 4outof5Stars.
I’d also recommend it to any Star Wars fan or any fan of the Rogue One film.

Book Review: The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh

Okay, this book was a lot more enjoyable as a whole to me compared to The Wrath and the Dawn. It took me awhile to get into the first book, but I was hooked from the first chapter of this one. Now, I understand why I liked this one more than the first one and that’s due to the fact that the first one has to set everything up. It’s job is to introduce me to this world that Renee Ahdieh created and she did a great job in the first one, it just took me awhile to get into it.
