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.

    MUST SEE TV FROM THE 60'S

    Normally I side with purists against colorizing, but in this case it looks so good that I decided it would be fun to own the first season episodes in color. They run often enough on TV in original black & white. "Bewitched" is just a pleasure to watch especially with the episodes uncut-that 5 minutes trimmed for ads does make a difference. When you you look beyond the gimmick of the witchcraft, you find that "Bewitched" has alot of heart and soul while also managing to examine prejudice,stereotypes, and sexism within the confines of a 60s sitcom with endearing characters and laugh out loud comedy. Instead of saying black/white, gay/straight, etc. it's witch/mortal. Quite an effort for Samantha and her family from this pre-"All in the Family" period.
