Is magic like the origina

Post # 1
This is going to sound really bad and a lot like rp but its an honest question

Iv been watching the originals a lot recently and I wanted yo know if magic was kinda like it is on there without the body jumping obviously as there's no shooting fireballs, shape shifting ,werewolf or vampires

Also no offence intended to this but people who haven't watched the originals I'm going to say are wrong as they won't know what the magics like on there please be respectful and iether watch a few episodes from the originals or don't comment.

When you see a television show, check to see if there are Actors in it. If it has Actors, then it is for entertainment only; and is about as real as Superman.
A Documentary is "based" on truth; but even documentaries often get it wrong.

Any work of fiction concerning fiction, is not based on fact.

Whether it's somethig from the same universe as any telivision show, book, comic, or video game.

Magic and the use of it through divination, shamanism, witchcraft, sorcery, etc, is a practice that works in the unseen and stems from and is evolved from cultural beliefs.

You won't find anything like throwing fire-balls, levitation, or body hopping.

Magic can do some amazing things, but nothing overly dramatic.

You want us to watch a show? A show....on tv. With actors...Where there are special effects and all that jazz? Right.

You should research magic and what is really is before you ask questions like these

or else you just make yourself look foolish.

There are tons of forums on here about the basics of magic and how magic works. I suggest you start there.

I personally have never seen the show but use common sense to weather they are getting aspects right, such as most of the stuff in charmed is real but have to exaggerate stuff or make things u for the purpose of entertainment, so in the end it probably has some things down and right but over exaggerate it for entertainment.

And just because something has actors it does not mean it should lose all credibility ,just look at the craft the first half is all real practices but you know stuff like the flying ,glamour ect is just to make it more entertaining to watch

never seen the show, but to answer your question i decided to find a clip from youtube

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5l7D-LDekc8

it started out promising, until 24 seconds in and then it went downhill. i will go out on a limb and say maybe the visions of past events the guy had done could happen via skrying or a divination, but everything after they stopped chanting is not real magick. magick is energy, it brings a desired change through the spell, you cannot use your powers to lift people off the ground or change from human to werewolf, or bring people back from the dead, or whatever else happens in the show. it's for entertainment only.

a question for your however is why not just research the answer yourself instead of asking people if you didn't want those who aren't fans of the show to say things against it? just remember, you can still love the show and cast real spells, just know whats fantasy and whats reality.

Wow. Its amazing how many people posted whatever regardless of what was originally posted. The Originals is my favorite show. I love how they told the story about how they came to be vampires, about how their mother was a witch. For this reason, they depict a respectable rendition of occult life. Aside from it being a tv show, it, for the most part, respects the realness of magic, yes. But be wary, 95% of people will never understand things as we do, so leave them to their fantasy. Blessed, we.

Thanks to the second half of people who posted as it was not as vicious as the others I pursonly think that the glamo. Werewolfs and vamps this is not real but things like the curses and hexes when fin curses his brother to death and devina tryes to save him through other spells may be real
