TV: Charmed—”It’s the 21st Century, It’s the Woman’s Job to Save the Day.”

In season two of Charmed, Billy Appleby, a character from Phoebe’s favourite old school horror movie, Kill It Before It Dies, makes it off the screen and into the sisters’ technicolour world, along with the Demon of Illusion, Bloody Mary and the slasher from Axe Husband.

When cornered by the Axe Husband, Billy chimes in, saying, “It’s okay: the man is here to save the day.” In true feminist-y Charmed style, Prue retorts with, “Billy, it’s the 21st century. It’s the woman’s job to save the day.”
