Tread Perilously - ‘Charmed: Wrestling with Demons’

Tread Perilously is a podcast in which hosts Erik Amaya and author Justin Robinson watch the “worst” episodes of popular TV shows, attempting to determine if they would continue to watch the series based on the most off-key moments.

This Week: Charmed's "Wrestling with Demons"

Tread Perilously's first Patreon Total Request Live Month ends with an episode of Charmed called, appropriately enough, "Wrestling with Demons."

When Phoebe's premonition of a senseless murder leads Pru to protect the hapless potential victim, she discovers the suspect is an old college boyfriend. Faced with a nearly impossible choice, she vows to recover his soul from a Demon Academy run by Ron Perlman. Meanwhile, Leo has lost Piper's engagement ring, leading Phoebe to use a recovery spell she intended for Cole. Will it prove to be super effective? And will she be able to tell Pru that Cole is still alive?

Shannen Doherty immediately becomes a topic of discussion as Erik appreciates her "bad girl energy" while Justin disagrees with her politics. The pair also discuss the way the WB marketed Charmed back in the late 1990s and early 21st Century. Erik tries to warp Leo into Tuxedo Mask. Skeet Ulrich gets promoted from being "the back-up Johnny Depp." An appearance by the Phantasm Ball complete derails the discussion. Justin reveals his appreciation for Alyssa Milano and shows some respect to actor Dennis Dun. Erik gets distracted by the fact the suspect is dressed like Angel. The pair try to figure out a dropped plot point from The Craft and start plotting a film version of Demon Academy.
