I Mean, I Love a Good Vampire Movie/Show But…

Can Witches be the new Vampires? There’s a pretty bad-ass one in the Vampire Diaries that all the tweens (and clearly myself) are watching and you know what? If done correctly, witches are awesome.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m super psyched for New Moon (coming out November 20) and I watched True Blood religiously, but I want to see some kick-ass witches and wizards.  Harry Potter and the crew are fun and I love them and all but I want some some witches from The Craft. Let’s bring THOSE bitches back.  But, maybe rein in part of the crazy?  That got a little out of control.

You know how not to bring back witches?  Ask ABC who did a remake of Witches of Eastwick.  That show is horrible  It is neither sexy, catty nor dramatic.  It is sooooo boring.  I’ve given it three tries and I’m yawning.  The main characters are too old.  I want it to happen, I really do, but if there are going to be witches and wizards they need to be young and agile and…hot.  Sorry, Rebecca Romaign, you’re not witch material–you’re past your prime. Could be their teacher like Professor McGonagall?  Sure, but not a main witch, that’s for sure.

Moral of the story: MORE MAGIC!!!!!  WITCHES FOR 2010!!
