Inconsistent and Flawed Traveling in Time
25 January 2007 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Prue, Pipes and Phoebe are attacked by the evil warlock Nicholas that wants to kill them and steal their powers. The Halliwell sisters are unable to protect themselves since Nicholas is immune to the power of three. He tells that he made a pact with Patty Halliwell in the past and he is invulnerable to their powers. The sisters cast a spell and travel in time to 1975, trying to avoid their mother's deal with Nicholas. However, neither of them has power and they have difficulties to convince their grandmother and mother who they are.

"That '70s Episode" has a good idea and a totally flawed execution. Stories with travel in time are very difficult to be consistent, and the writer of this episode shows a total lack of care with the absurd and illogical situations. The viewer must not have any logical thoughts and enjoy only the sentimental side of the story, with the gathering of three generations of the Halliwell family. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Nos Anos 70" ("In the 70's")
