I don’t think I am the only one who would say they sure don’t make television like they used to. I find nothing more relaxing than an afternoon watching classic television. Even a show about a witch like, Bewitched was just pure innocent fun. Thanks to Mill Creek Entertainment you can get shows like Bewitched for a fabulous value in great sets like the one I have which has both seasons one and two of Bewitched.
I have probably already seen every single episode at least once but I had forgotten a lot, especially from the first episodes in these early seasons. For many of them, it was like watching them for the first time. In the set of six discs are the first seventy four episodes, which will provide you with hours laughter, and if you are like me it will bring back a lot of childhood memories. Even just hearing the opening and closing music makes me smile.
The episode where Darrin meets Endora for the first time had me and my husband laughing out loud. I love Endora and all of the hilarious chaos she starts for 'what’s his name.' Speaking of what’s his name, Dick York is just perfect in this role, he will always be Darrin to me. His facial expressions really are awesome. But the star of course is Elizabeth Montgomery and when I was little I wanted to be a witch just like Samantha. I wasn't alone either, many of my friends tried to master the nose wiggle.
The series is filled with warm, unforgettable characters like the nosy neighbor Gladys, Aunt Clara, and Uncle Author. I think Gladys is my favorite of the supporting characters, always yelling for her husband Abner who never seems to look in time to see the witchcraft at work. Plus there are numbers fabulous single episode characters, like Greta Chi who plays a cat that gets turned into a lady in the season one episode Ling-Ling. She did an awesome job playing a fun role.
