To pre-empt my answer, I'll just say that I didn't get into the series until it was over (which is sadly how it has worked for a lot of my favorite tv shows), and when I was getting into it, my mother told me that one of the sister's was replaced after the first few seasons. This news was devastating to me, and I was hoping she was wrong.
But then I reached season 4, and it was true! I did not like her at first, but I got used to her, and I was ok by the end of season 4. But every time I re-watch the series, I like Prue again and dread Paige's arrival, then get used to her. It's a deadly cycle, but the series has always been one of my all-time favorites.

i never really liked shannon doherty. shes a b*tch in reality and ive heard horror stories of working with her, and that must be true considering she hasnt had a gig since charmed, which i beleive ended over 10 years ago, or almost 10 years ago. i like rose mcgowen, i think shes pretty and edgy in her way. i liked her better personally.

I hated it when Prue died! I literally wanted to stop watching it when it happened. I like Paige and all but Prue was one of my favourites.

Will admit at first I didn't like Paige even know I'm fan of Rose McGowan and was disappoint that Prue die, but it eventually mid season 4 of charmed and yes Paige was annoying at times.
also I was also upset they did't have Prue in the final episode of charmed and was my niece..

Piper actually changed a lot. Before Prue died, she was a lot more nervous and jumpy. Afterwards, she was very brave and daring. The main difference between her and Prue is that Piper was still able to find the time to have fun, and create a family. All Prue ever did was work and fight demons, and run away from everything else.

yeah but Prue was the oldest sister so she had to be the bitch so to speak but when Piper became the oldest they couldnt change her personality. I get what u mean but i found Paige annoying and whining at times! lol

As great as Prue was, she was really uptight about everything. She couldn't ever really enjoy being a witch. When Piper became the oldest sister, she wasn't as bad as Prue. Yes, she stepped up and started being more tough, but she still was able to enjoy herself.

I got used to Paige too, still would rather Prue though! Paige could do more with the whitelighter power but pretty lame it was the same as Prues, imagine the 4 of em fighting a demon, there would be no use for Paige

I'm fairly sure she had a few...but I know the first one was of Melinda Warren putting Matthew Tate into the locket.

Mr Charmed One
Well like you said yourself, a lot of things changed since the start of the show. It was probably easier to use black and white at first, when they were just starting out and didn't have many fans yet.
I don't think Phoebe actually ever had a real premonition from the past before, did she? There was the cowboy episode, and she thought the premonition was from the past, but technically, it was from the future, because she soon would be in that time period where her premonition would come true.

I just think there are other ways of showing that it's a premonition (which they eventually did, but it should have been like that from the start). Seeing as visions of the past didn't happen a whole lot, the black and white premonitions were a bit out of place.
