By Paula R. Stiles

[lots of spoilers ahead]

Review: Eastwick 1.10: Tea and Psychopathy

By Paula R. Stiles

Tagline: Jamie’s revelation to Roxie about his true parentage inspires an innocent good deed from her that leads to dire consequences. Max talks Joanna into investigating the death of Jamie’s mother, Gloria, which leads to Eleanor and equally-dire consequences. Kat goes a little nutty with her new powers, which leads to definitely-dire consequences.

Recap: It’s still cold and snowy in Eastwick this week, which is only appropriate, considering it’s New England. I missed the teaser, but …

Visions of Eastwick

By Paula R. Stiles

ABC’s Eastwick, which is currently running out its last few episodes, is not the first sequel or remake of the original book, The Witches of Eastwick, since the film version. There have been two pilots, a British musical and two porn versions (no lie). One intriguing fact: ABC’s is the first version to be developed by a woman (Maggie Friedman):

Review: Eastwick 1.08: Paint and Pleasure

By Paula R. Stiles

Review: The Witches of Eastwick (film)

By Paula R. Stiles

It was recently reported that the ABC show, Eastwick, didn’t get a pickup past its initial 13-episode run. This means it will end when those 13 episodes run out. However, since there are still six episodes left, we’ll keep reviewing them until the lights go down. And since there’s a two-week hiatus before the show comes back the night before Thanksgiving (nice going, ABC), we’re going to review some related stuff in the intervening weeks.

Review (and Recap): Eastwick 1.05: Mooning and Crooning

By Paula R. Stiles

Eastwick tagline: A rare, extra-large full moon brings out more than the wolf in everybody, including our three witches. But the morning after may have some harsh consequences.

Eastwick recap: Van Horne takes the women out to dinner (actually, he invites himself out to their girls’ night out). While there, they are accosted by the wife of the Reverend Joanna exposed two weeks ago. The woman has choice (and not entirely fair) words for each of …
