The story of the Halliwell starts here with seasons 1-3 of Charmed on DVD

By Garrett Godwin

See how the heritage of the Halliwell family began with the first three seasons of Charmed on DVD.  Debuted on the WB in the fall of 1998 at the height of "female empowerment" on screen, the series follows the trials and tribulations-- as well as the lives and loves-- of the Halliwell sisters, who discovered that they're the Charmed Ones, the most powerful good witches ever:

Prue (Shannon Doherty), the oldest, has the power to move things

Piper (Holly Marie Combs), the middle, has the power to stop time

Phoebe (Alyssa Milano), the youngest, has the power to see into the future

As the Charmed Ones, the Halliwell sisters start their mission to fight evil and save innocents.

Charmed: The Complete First Season (1998-99)

Featuring all 22 episodes, this freshman year finds the sisters uncovering their powers and embracing their destiny.  In the beginning, the series became standalone while mixing occasional storylines such as Prue's on/off relationship with Inspector Andy Trudeau (Ted King) and whether or not she should tell him her secret.  Season one marks the story of the series' main super couple: Piper and Leo (Brian Krause), the Halliwells' Whitelighter -- and Piper's soul mate.

Charmed: The Complete Second Season (1999-2000)

The show's sophomore year finds the sisters accepting their powers as a blessing more than a curse, continuing to grow as young women.  Dealing with the loss of Andy, Prue finds love again -- and a new power.  No longer a chef, Piper is owner of her own nightclub called P3, and becomes involved in a love triangle with future General Hospital heartthrob Greg Vaughn, but ends up choosing the one she is meant to be with.  Phoebe, the youngest, decides to go back to school.  Continuing their fight against evil, the Charmed Ones find a new ally in Inspector Daryl Morris (Dorian Gregory).

Charmed: The Complete Third Season (2000-01)

Julian McMahon joined the cast, as the series hits its stride this season with serialized storylines.  McMahon is Cole Turner, who was supposed to be a prosecutor, but turns out to be Belthazor-- the most powerful demon ever.  Hired by the Triad to kill the sisters, he ends up falling in love with Phoebe, and decided to go from evil to good -- but their relationship will continue to be tested.  Speaking of relationships, Piper and Leo's will be tested as well, but through their love, they always find a way back to each other.  Season three finds Phoebe not only graduating from college, but also having the power to levitate.  However, the finale may have the Power of Three threatened, as one sister will not survive.

Get Bewitched with the first three seasons of Charmed on DVD.
