The cast of "Eastwick"

"Eastwick" Series Premiere Review by Suzanne
Airing on ABC Wednesdays 10/9 c

I really enjoyed this show's premiere. I love scifi/fantasy-type shows, anyway, and I enjoy shows with strong female characters.  The show is somewhat of a cross between "Desperate Housewives" and "Charmed".  It's based on the movie "Witches of Eastwick", which was based on a John Updike novel.

Three women in a small New England town make a wish at the town fountain and discover that they have powers, at the same time that they connect as friends.  A strange and mysterious man comes to town right after that and helps them with their powers and to improve their lives. Of course, he's not what he seems, and indeed my guess is that he is evil.

One of the women, Roxie (Rebecca Romijn), is a free-spirited artist with a teenage daughter and a very young lover (she dreams what will happen).  Another is Joanna (Lindsay Price), who is a timid newspaper reporter that has a thing for the paper's photographer (she can get men to do her biddign). The third woman is Kat (Jamie Ray Newman), an over-worked mom and nurse, who has a lazy husband (she controls the elements).  The stranger in town, Darryl (Paul Gross) buys the local paper and some other businesses.  He gives Roxie a job and helps out her daughter, and there is a lot of sexual tension between them. Darryl encourages Joanna to go after what she wants, and Kat finds the strength to deal with her good-for-nothing husband.

I can't wait to see what happens in the next episode.  It is a very good show, and I hope it's a smash hit.  It has some competition against Jay Leno and CSI: NY.  Watch it this week!
