Based on Melissa de la Cruz's New York Times best-selling novel, the series centers on the Beauchamp family, where in season one sisters Freya and Ingrid discovered they are witches with ancient magical powers.

    Though the show is a drama, it is served up with a droll comic sensibility that is a refreshing change.

    Witches of East End doesn't overdo the mythology (like Sleepy Hollow) or make it all about the sex (like True Blood). Instead, it set up a complicated interpersonal world, a plausible (for this kind of show) backstory, and then populated the town with really good-looking people.

    The starter hour picks up steam whenever loose-cannon Amick bops around--although Ormond does a nice job of grounding its shenanigans in a semblance of reality.

    While all the characters have boilerplate for bones--the brainy one, the pretty one, the smart aleck, the tortured hunk--crisp writing and buoyant performances keep the story from trending too trite or too "Twilight."

    Witches of East End is the campiest hot mess on TV.

    What the pilot lacks in smooth-flow niceties it makes up for in silly fun.

  • David Wiegand

    The Witches of East End may not win a Peabody anytime soon, but to its mildly enjoyable credit, it doesn't take itself too seriously.

  • Geoff Berkshire

    Even if the series plays it right down the middle--it’s not exactly good, but not terrible either--that might be all that’s needed to succeed.

  • Hank Stuever

    The show has a sincerity about its silliness and light spookiness; for a moment there, it’s almost as if 'True Blood' tried to conceive a demon baby with 'Bunheads.'

  • Todd VanDerWerff

    Witches Of East End has the curious distinction of feeling at once underpopulated and way, way too busy.

    The clichés are too silly and obvious.

    Under The Radar Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    A missable new supernatural series populated by wooden actors and feeble plotlines.

  • Ed Bark

    Witches of East End is just not worth a viewer’s toils and troubles.

  • Lori Rackl

    [A] soapy, silly adaptation of Melissa de la Cruz’s best-seller.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    No amount of magic could elevate the amateurish acting and shoddy, choppy, derivative writing. Whatever the opposite of spellbinding is, that's this show.
