About This Quiz

Think you've got the smarts to ace this "Charmed" quiz? We dare you to get them all right.

"Charmed" is a US television show that ran for eight seasons for a total of 178 episodes. The show was about three sisters, witches, who did not know they had magical powers until after the death of their grandmother, who raised them. The sisters - Prue (Shannen Doherty), Piper (Holly Marie Combs), and Phoebe (Alyssa Milano, formerly of "Who's the Boss" fame) Halliwell - learn that they are, collectively, the most powerful witches of all time. In later seasons, half-sister Paige Matthews (same mother, different father, played by Rose McGowan), takes the place of Prue, who was killed off at the end of season three. This replacement was necessary since the sisters' powers were contingent on the Power of Three.

Although the show could never be accused of being a serious show about anything, critics generally gave the show favorable reviews, calling it enjoyable and fun. However, in the later seasons, those reviews changed to complaints that the show became a bit soap-ish and focused too much on the love lives of the heroines and not enough on the theme of witchcraft.

You'll need to do more than charm your way through this quiz. Let's get started.
