The Book of Shadows is more than just a demonology reference manual -- there ARE spells in it that the three Charmed Ones have used from time to time.
This show is strictly a gulty pleasure. Its mythology is fairly intricate and occasionally inspired, but it frequently breals its own rules. (For example, whitelighters are forbidden to fall in love with the witches they protect, but Leo and Piper, after enduring much anguish, were allowed to get married.)The three leads are attractive and often wear clothes two sizes too small, and the sisters' characterizations and relationships are pretty neatly written -- but they're not great actors, and even great actors would have trouble making the awful dialogue work.
I also miss Shannen Doherty. But they decided that Alyssa Milano was the main draw and made her first among equals. A bad choice, in my opinion.
Having said that, I still watch it. A man's entitled to a few guilty pleasures, isn't he?
