ORBzine - Eastwick TV Review


Eastwick Eastwick [Season 1, Episode 1] Pilot
Shown 23/Sep/09

Veronica Cartwright delivers a sickly-sweet voice-over to introduce the concept, so this is reminiscent from the start of mainstream fare like Desperate Housewives. This is a rehash of the 1980s horror-comedy Witches of Eastwick ... or a sequel, as Cartwright seems to play her original character!

The sleepy town of Eastwick has three lonely women - a widow ( Rebecca Romjin ), a spinster and a mother-of-five. The baby-momma has a layabout husband, and she complains that he doesn't bring home the bacon. Of course, she doesn't realise that SHE is the breadwinner and HE is the home-body, but since this is aimed at a female audience the Feminist double standard is ignored.

A tall (?) dark handsome stranger (Paul Gross - Due South) comes to town. He awakens the womens' magic - or did it summon him? And just how eeevil is he?

The reporter and her love interest (the token African-American) investigate a murder from the 1980s. The witness they question ( Cybill Shepherd ) has a secret agenda of her own.

The lady doctor uses her power to cure people. But the power comes at a cost, draining her of her own life force. The more she drains herself, the more addicted she becomes. She then uses her telekinesis to commit domestic violence against her ex-husband.

Shown 30/Dec/09

This show has already deteriorated into a grown-up version of Charmed . As in, it is aimed at tweenagers instead of twelve-year-olds.

Satan (Paul Gross) is back in town. But this time he is a tame little puppy, willing to be the widow's monogamous BF.

Last ep gave the girls a cliff-hanger ending. The trio are under attack, so their subconsciousnesses all meet up in a dream.

The reporter, who is now a self-employed blogger, is trapped by Cybil Shepherd (the creepy matriarch type, like her role in The L Word). Luckily she is trapped with her potential love interest.

The divorcee is underwater, like the alien replacements in The Invasion . Luckily she still has an ex-husband who cares.

Rebecca Romjin Was left for dead by the pretty-boy leprechaun. Unfortunately he needs her to kill Satan (Paul Gross) for him.
