Fine Print: I was given a copy of the DVD for review and Twentieth Century Fox is giving another to a reader. All opinions and statements below are my own.
I first heard about Witches of East End when I read about it in a magazine last year. I’ve been a fan of Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s dancing, so her name caught my eye. Then seeing that Julia Ormond was also in it (“Sabrina” anyone??), I looked it up online. That was when I was struck with the photo above and sold. I don’t know what it is about that image, but the designer did a good job! I check and re-check the nuances whenever I see it!
Anyway, as enthralled as I was with the cast, I only saw the magazine last year and would have gotten started on the show mid-season. Figuring that I’d rather binge watch it when it came out streaming through a service, I held off. So when I was told that Season 1 was out on DVD and available, I jumped at the chance to watch it and let you all know about it! Here is a bit more about the show itself:
“Witches of East End” stars Emmy award-winning Julia Ormond (Temple Grandin) as Joanna Beauchamp, an ageless mother trying to keep a supernatural secret from her daughters, Freya (Jenna Dewan-Tatum; Step Up) and Ingrid (Rachel Boston; (500) Days of Summer) so they can lead a normal life. But when Joanna’s estranged sister (Mädchen Amick; “Twin Peaks”) arrives to warn her of an evil entity out to destroy them all, Joanna is forced to reveal the truth about her family’s magical legacy. Co-starring Virginia Madsen (Sideways), Eric Winter (“Days of Our Lives”) and Daniel DiTomasso (“Beauty and the Beast”), this powerful and enchanting drama series will cast its spell on you!
Witches of East End is a lot of fun. It is a little magic, a little soap opera, a little “Charmed” and a little “Revenge” all mixed together. You can call it a guilty pleasure, but you’re going to keep on watching! The actresses have a fun chemistry and the storyline is intriguing. They give you just enough in each episode so that you find yourself going, “Okay…. just one more episode!” when you know that bedtime has long come and gone. If you enjoy television candy, this is right up there!
