Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
In 1964, producer-director William Asher was already an old hand at the sitcom game, and he brought every iota of his considerable talent and experience to Bewitched, which became a huge success in its original network run and evolved into a cultural phenomenon over decades of syndicated repeats. The show didn't begin with a fully fleshed-out back-story, as most sitcoms do; Asher and his writers took at least half the first season to introduce the entire supporting cast and establish the relationships. The pilot, "I, Darrin, Take This Witch, Samantha," introduces us to advertising executive Darrin Stephens Dick York, who marries a beautiful young woman named Samantha Elizabeth Montgomery shortly after meeting her. What he doesn't know, initially, is that she's a witch with magical powers. While on their honeymoon, Samantha is visited by her mother, Endora Agnes Moorehead, who scolds her for marrying a mortal and predicts no good will come of it. In the second episode, "Be It Ever So Mortgaged," Darrin and Samantha buy a home, which she fixes up with magic. This show introduces the Stephens' neighbors, Gladys and Abner Kravitz Alice Pearce and George Tobias, who will figure prominently throughout the show's run. Darrin and Endora finally meet in "Mother, Meet What's His Name," which sports the first of their innumerable and frequently hilarious clashes. The first season's Halloween show, "The Witches Are Out," turns the spotlight on Samantha's lovable old Aunt Clara Marion Lorne, and "Just One Happy Family" marks the first appearance of Maurice Evans as Sam's mischievous father. Judged by today's sitcoms, Bewitched might seem silly and bland, but it won viewers' hearts back in the '60s, and not just because they liked the cute way Montgomery wiggled her nose: the episodes were ingenious in their own fashion, and the plots were essentially character-driven, not just reliant on sudden appearances, disappearances, or transmutations. By the way, in watching Season 1 you'll spot lots of future stars in small roles, including Raquel Welch, Adam West, and future "Marcia Brady" Maureen McCormick.

    Good classic comedy

    I grew up watching all the Bewitched in color on WGN, so it was a great pleasure to see all these old, old episodes, in B/W. The plots were simpler than in later seasons, focusing on the difference between the actions and expectations of normal folks (Darrin, the Kravitzes, etc.) and those of the witches (Samantha, Endora, and dear Aunt Clara). Aunt Clara always screws up her spells in an enchanting way, and the first Mrs. Kravitz is also very funny. My favorite episode was the one where Endora (Agnes Moorehead) finally introduced herself to Darrin (Dick York): Trying to discover Sam's maiden name, Darrin asks Endora delicately, and she sniffily replies, "You'll never be able to pronounce it." Priceless. You can't go wrong with this one.

    Elizabeth Montgomery IS magic!

    Though the magic makes it special, BEWITCHED is really a comedy about love, family, and tolerance...and a wonderful slice of 60's life.....With a twitch of her nose, Elizabeth Montgomery cast a spell on generations of fans, as Samantha...the suburban house-witch. Dick York "the first and superior Darrin to many hardcore fans" shows off his flair for the double take and slow burn...and the marvelously witchy Agnes Moorehead dons her big wig and her flowing flying suit to make her son-in-law's life utterly miserable. Children and adults take to it equally, so share it with the family.
