So my wife loves this show, and unfortunately I am sometimes in the same room when this rubbish is on. I've never payed much attention until today when I sat down and started watching a bit with her, and all I can say is WTF! The episode she was watching is called "Extreme Makeover: World Edition". The original airdate was January 23, 2005. Let me first give you the episode synopsis as written on the dvd insert:
"With the impending doom of the Avatars' Utopian transformation of the world where all humans must be put to sleep, The Charmed Ones become victims of a paranoia spell that attracts and kills an Avatar."
Within the time span of just about 10 mins I caught more NWO, masses asleep/brainwashed innuendo than you could shake your fist at. They even threw in a random scene where some guy picks up a snowglobe of the WTC twin towers and just looks at it. I thought I must have missed the context so I asked my wife why he was looking at this snow globe of the WTCs and she had absolutely no idea. It HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE STORYLINE! The next several minutes following that scene were FULL of references to the masses literally being asleep(due to some spell), paranoia(the charmed ones were awake but paranoid due to the spell), conspiracy, transformation, Utopian society, good vs evil, etc. There was also a desire expressed by the Avatars(some mystic group aparantly with an agenda to create a utopian society) to move quickly before people could catch on. I only caught the last 10 minutes so some of the context was lost on me, but I was absolutey blown away by all of the NWO innuendo and undertones.
Does anyone watch this show? Is this episode indiciative of what the show is like?

Apparently he's talking about 'Charmed'.
Fiction. Loonies just don't get it.

Tv is just messing with your mind. That's nothing compared to the mindfuckery that was NGE.

Yes, he's talking about Charmed. And he's also reading way too much into it.

Sometimes a snow globe is just a snow globe. Time for your meds.

The episode was called "Extreme Makeover: World Edition"? Maybe the twin towers stood for that? The States (so according to Americans the world) has not been the same since 9/11.
But yeah, you go on with your crazies. I just hope you don't breed.

What the fuck is this guy ranting on about?
Avatars, Utopian clusterfuckery, Charmed Ones, paranoia, impending DOOM...
Even if this is an episode of Charmed the plot seems to be made of cheap produce section pre-bagged word salad with bacon bits mixed in.

This is a snow globe. Do not swallow whole.
This is a Prozac. Do swallow whole.

This sort of thing just makes me want to write a book about some NWO with major undertones. It would be so fun.

Someday I am going to write and publish a book under a pseudonym that is filled with incoherent rambling, wide tangents, anachronisms by the boatload, indefensible but initially plausible allegories, and obscure references to beat the band. Then I'm going to add a few notes within about vague spooky connotations, and then sit back and watch the conspiracy nuts go bonkers. Because, hey, if they can buy this crap as realistically plausible then I can probably get away with anything. If I turn a profit, even better.

FICTION, DIPSHIT! IT'S FICTION!

Charmed invokes a lot of this stuff for one reason: it gets ratings.

...Or it's just a fucking TV show.

And, here I thought "extreme makeover" meant changes in hairstyle, make-up and clothing.
