Something Wicca This Way Comes - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When Prue wonders where the cream is, the little container thereof slides along the table to her. Then the cream drains from the container and burbles up through her coffee. However, that's completely discontinuous with how Prue's power ever worked at any other time in the next three years. The cream should have needed to leap out of the container and into the coffee, simply traveling physically across space.

Correction: Actually, Prue displays a power that is like a branch of her Telekinesis and is knows as Telematerializarion, which allows her to transport liquids through space.

The Wedding from Hell - S1-E6

Corrected entry: When the Charmed Ones run up to the bedroom at the end of the episode, Prue can't find the poignard as she rummages through her black purse. Elliot, who has fallen from the bed, suddenly picks up the poignard from the ground, where it is sitting next to a black purse. The way the shot is set up, it looks as if the purse has fallen there, and the poignard fell out. But since Prue is still holding the purse that the poignard was supposed to be in, and she hadn't been to that room before, the poignard's presence on the floor is completely inexplicable.

xx:xx:xx

DavidK93

Correction: The purse on the ground, despite being black, is very different from Prue's purse, it is most likely somebody else's. As for the knife, the three sisters are all shoved when the bridesmaids enter and Prue's purse falls from her. We don't see the knife falling out, but its reasonable to assume that it did so since it ended up a few feet away where Elliot was.

The Wendigo - S1-E12

Corrected entry: Approximately 10 minutes into the episode, the Haliwells are in the kitchen getting breakfast. While sitting at the table, Piper is heard to say "it's not, it's fine", but her lips don't move.

xx:xx:xx

pinkwafer

Correction: The shot is moving toward her while she is saying the line. It doesn't show her face.

Thank You for Not Morphing - S1-E3

Corrected entry: After the shapeshifter turned from a mailman into Andy, Prue told him about her father returning to town. Later, the real Andy came to the house, and then after a cut, he and Prue were talking about Prue's father, Victor. Andy has known Prue since high school, and therefore knows that Victor has been gone for twenty years. And since Prue only told the shapeshifter about Victor's return, the real Andy didn't know about it. So how could he and Prue have gotten onto the subject of Victor being in San Francisco, a fact that surely would have surprised the real Andy, without Prue figuring out that Andy wasn't the one she talked to earlier that day?

xx:xx:xx

DavidK93

Correction: We only see the second half of this conversation. They could have gotten onto the topic a number of ways, without Andy questioning it.

Something Wicca This Way Comes - S1-E1

Corrected entry: In the first episode Prue uses her powers to tighten the tie around her boss' neck as she walks down the hall, but in future episodes Prue must be looking at the object she moves with her power.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: Actually in other episodes (like the one where she was kidnapped and tied to a chair in the basement) she only needed to picture it in her mind. She didn't even know she was doing it at this time.

Is There a Woogy in the House? - S1-E15

Corrected entry: In the scene where Prue's guests are about to leave for Quake there is a crew member visible at the door and opening the door and walking out.

xx:xx:xx

Stephen Edmonds 1

Correction: It is actually one of the characters in the episode walking out.

Something Wicca This Way Comes - S1-E1

Corrected entry: The newspaper which you can see Prue holding at the end of this episode (right before she 'half-blinks' to shut the door) has something written on it like yadda yadda yadda 'Doubt Fire' yadda yadda yadda. Yep, thats right, the same newspaper from Mrs Doubtfire.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: Not sure if I'm missing something but the newspaper actually says Beneath the Heading 'Gazette': 'Police Doubt Fire Was Accidental' with a photo beneath of what looks like a burning apartment building.

Something Wicca This Way Comes - S1-E1

Corrected entry: Jeremy is a warlock, but he seemingly cannot blink. In all other episodes all warlocks have the ability to blink, but Jeremy had to run all of the way to the manor. While in the episode The Witch is Back, Melinda says that a warlock who blinks must have taken it from a witch, that is not the case for the entire rest of the series where blinking is only an evil power used by warlocks. So either the writers changed their minds about what they wanted "blinking" to be, or they forgot what they had said about it originally, thus making this mistake.

Correction: Jeremy had to run all the way back to the manor because the sisters had cast a spell on him dampening his powers. The sisters had to use the power of three spell to vanquish him as well as the spell Piper cast on him, so he was pretty weakened at the point of the first spell.

When Bad Warlocks Go Good - S1-E18

Corrected entry: After the sisters stop Brendan from killing the woman and the police arrive, the woman tells Andy that she heard the name Prue. Andy tells Prue he can place her at the scene. But she can't be the only Prue in the city and the woman never saw Prue, so he can not place her at the scene.

Correction: Andy meant that he knew Prue was there at the scene. It might not have held up in a court of law or anything, but at this time Andy knew that the sisters (especially Prue) had a habit of being at crime scenes without any reasonable explanation. And honestly, Prue isn't exactly a common name.

That '70s Episode - S1-E17

Corrected entry: According to this episode, the binding spell that Grams cast on the sisters when they were children would be automatically unbound when she died. If this happened they would not have needed to read a spell to gain their powers in the pilot episode 'Something Wicca This Way Comes'.

Correction: Grams bounded their powers including spell casting and potion making, so when she died only their spell casting and potion making powers were unbound, Phoebe still needed to read the spell to gain all their powers back.

Something Wicca This Way Comes - S1-E1

Corrected entry: At the very beginning, we see Phoebe running to the house. Not Piper. The way the episode is edited would have you think it was actually Piper returning to the house. Inspection of the umbrellas they carry into the house will show that the one from the beginning is the same as the one Phoebe brings with her. Piper's umbrella is black with white spots whereas Phoebes is black with a trim around the outside.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: The person we see running up the stairs could not be Phoebe beacuse this person is wearing a dress, and when Phoebe comes in she is wearing pants.

Dead Man Dating - S1-E4

Corrected entry: Andy gives Prue a key as an early birthday gift, and tells her that it's a key to the Calistoga Spa, where he has arranged for them to spend the following weekend, in adjoining rooms. But where did the key come from? You get a room key when you check into a resort, not the week before your vacation.

xx:xx:xx

DavidK93

Correction: The key is just a gesture saying that is where he wants to take her for the weekend. It is not the actual key to their room.

Deja Vu All Over Again - S1-E22

Corrected entry: In 'Deja Vu All Over Again' Tempest tells Rodriguez he has brought him back to the exact moment they met. Tempest first appeared to Rodriguez at midnight, but it's light outside when he says this.

xx:xx:xx

Shay

Correction: Actually Tempess says that he brought him back to the place they first met.

The Truth Is Out There... and It Hurts - S1-E8

Corrected entry: In the lift, Tanya has a white top beneath her blue jumper, but in the manor, she doesn't have a white top on.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: You are correct that in the first scene when they are in the manor you see no white top on underneath her blue sweater. After they show Prue and Andy talking they cut back to the manor and Tanya was sitting on the couch looking through the book of shadows you can clearly see her white top.It may have been beacause her sweater was up higher so you could not see it in the first scene.

That '70s Episode - S1-E17

Corrected entry: If the sisters are innately magical even without their powers, as we see when they go back to save Melinda in episode 3-4, how are Piper and Prue frozen by little Piper?

Correction: When Prue and Piper were in the diner trying to use their powres in front of their mom and failed to work they assumed that only one set of girls can only have powers. So if older Piper and Prue did not have any powers they were actually not witches.

Stephen Edmonds 1

Deja Vu All Over Again - S1-E22

Corrected entry: In 'Deja Vu All Over Again', after Piper calls Phoebe it's an hour before she gets to Quake and only after that does Joanna arrive. During the third time they live the day Phoebe tells Piper to come home immediately when she calls, but Piper talks to Joanna before she leaves. If she was supposed to come home immediately why would she still be at the restaurant an hour later?

Shay

Correction: Phoebe says that you should ome home as soon as you can beacause we have a lot of demon hunting to do. So that would give Piper some time to tell Joanna what se can do with her life and her show.

Dream Sorcerer - S1-E5

Corrected entry: When Prue is dreaming and the dream sorcerer scratches her, she starts to bleed on her left shoulder. However, when she is checking in the mirror after having woken up, the scratches are on the right shoulder.

Ronnie Bischof

Correction: If you look into a mirror you are seeing yourself in reverse. When Prue was looking at the scratches on her back they are on the left side becaue of the mirror effect makes it look like it is on the right side.

The Power of Two - S1-E20

Corrected entry: In the first shots of this episode, they show the ghost of Alcatraz and a soul collector. They failed to take away the shadows of both the ghost and the soul collector. There's a scene where a crowd of people are looking into the jail cell that the ghost and the soul collector are in. It shows no ghost, no soul collector and, importantly, no shadows. The next scene shows the ghost and the soul collector, and miraculously they have shadows.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: It's showing what the cell looks like to ordinary people: empty. But then it shows the TV viewers that there really is something in the cell.

The Truth Is Out There... and It Hurts - S1-E8

Corrected entry: The morning after Prue says the truth spell, Piper is wearing a green shirt with a necklace, but when she goes to Quake, she is wearing a white top with a necklace, and when Piper is back at the manor, she is wearing the same green top, but without a necklace.

Correction: Not really a mistake. Many people have work clothes and casual clothes that they change during the day, especially in the service industry.

The Truth Is Out There... and It Hurts - S1-E8

Corrected entry: When the demon approached Tanya in the elevator, there were several other people in there with them. The demon immediately started talking about how hard it was to find her, and how she was never alone - which she still isn't, but he doesn't mention that. From Tanya's facial expression, she thought he was very creepy. We cut to Phoebe and Prue trying to get to Tanya before the demon can kill her. Then we see the demon dragging Tanya through the parking lot. But they were in an elevator full of people, and he was some sort of masher, at the very least. Plus, she was in the middle of work, transporting a loaded dolly, so it's extremely unlikely that he could have lured her away. How did he manage to drag her out and into the parking lot?

DavidK93

Correction: Intimidation? A spell? A special power he possessed? There are enough reasonable possibilities to prevent this from being a mistake.

Jason Hoffman

Something Wicca This Way Comes - S1-E1

Corrected entry: In the first episode when Phoebe is in her room, you can see that the tattoo on her shoulder has covering makeup on it, but not enough to completely cover it. It's not covered up for the rest of the series.

Maria Santos

Correction: People cover tattoos with makeup all the time. It's possible she wanted to cover it but later decided she didn't care.

Jason Hoffman

That '70s Episode - S1-E17

Corrected entry: In this episode, the Charmed Ones travel into the past, to 1975. Prue explains to Piper that one of the reasons Patty became a waitress was because, "With Dad gone, she had to pay the bills somehow." However, Patty was in the earliest stages of her pregnancy in this episode, while episode 1-3: "Thank You For Not Morphing" established that Victor didn't leave the family until after Phoebe was born.

DavidK93

Correction: When Barbas makes the girls relive their worst memories, Piper's is her father leaving "for the last time," implying that Victor left and came back several times before leaving for good. Given Victor and Patty's rocky marriage, this would have been another of those periods when he was gone and Patty had to make ends meet on her own.

Captain Defenestrator

The Wendigo - S1-E12

Corrected entry: When the wendigo attacked Piper it only scratched her once, but when the wendigo ran away Piper had three scratches.

Correction: Piper had three scratches because the wendigo had claws, if a cat scratches you, you're gonna get more than one scratch.

Season 1 generally

Corrected entry: In later seasons, Phoebe needs to touch things to get a premonition, but throughout season 1 she gets them constantly without touching anything (ie in "Something Wicca This Way Comes", her premonition about the two skateboarders).

Shay

Correction: Not true. She was touching her bike which would've run across a point of psychic remenence as Leo said in "Primrose Empath" when Phoebe had the premonition in the room "dripping with psychic remenence"

The Fourth Sister - S1-E7

Corrected entry: When Prue finds Aviva's diary, she reads a few sentences aloud, about how much she hates lying to the Halliwells, but they don't match the words we see in the shot of the page.

Shay

Correction: The words Prue reads aloud are from the bottom half of the page we see in the shot.

Is There a Woogy in the House? - S1-E15

Corrected entry: When Phoebe first discovers the new power the Woogy Man gave her, she says to Piper, "Something weird happened to me in that basement." But then later when she comes out of the basement and says, "Is anyone going to answer that?" Both sisters says things like, "did you seriously just come out of the basement? I thought you were afraid of it." Piper shouldn't be surprised, because Phoebe has already told her that she was in the basement.

Correction: Actually Phoebe says, "Something weird happened to me in the..." and was then distracted, so she never finished her sentence.

Dead Man Dating - S1-E4

Corrected entry: After Skye's body is found, Darryl says that "The coroner says it's as if she fell off a twenty-story building." But when did the coroner ever see this body? They're still at the crime scene, and the body hasn't even been moved from the bed yet.

DavidK93

Correction: If you watch any show like Law & Order or CSI, you will see the coroner arrive at the scene of the crime, often before the police. It makes perfect sense for the medical examiner to see the body before they leave the scene.

Out of Sight - S1-E19

Corrected entry: In 'Out of Sight', season 1, Prue is pouring a potion into jars when the phone rings. When she sets the pot down there is one full jar and one empty jar, when she runs back a few seconds later to grab the potion both jars are full.

Shay

Correction: Actually, when she runs to the phone she passes two other full jars, and those are the ones she grabs.

I've Got You Under My Skin - S1-E2

Corrected entry: Prue smugly chastises Phoebe for trying to use magic for personal gain when she plays the lottery numbers from her vision. Not addressed in the episode is the fact that Prue used her telekinesis to prevent the elevator from stopping at everyone else's floors when she was on her way up to her interview at Buckland's.

DavidK93

Correction: Prue is being hypocritical, but that hardly ranks as a mistake. The issue of her using her powers for personal gain is never addressed because none of the other sisters see it.

Shay

Thank You for Not Morphing - S1-E3

Corrected entry: In this episode, their father recalls that Piper once upon a time would only eat white food. She says, "That's right. I was four." And then their father says "Phoebe, that would make you what, one?" And Phoebe says, "Yeah." But in other episodes, if you look on their family tree, Piper was born in 1973 and Phoebe in 1975. So she would be two, not one.

Correction: Yes, this could be the case but you also have to take into account what months Piper and Phoebe were born in. This could have happened just after Piper turned four or just before Phoebe turned two.
