Nice Little Gem From The 60's
The 1960's was a great time for TV comedy-we had The Munsters, The Addams Family, I Dream of Jeannie and my personal favourite-Bewitched.

The late Elizabeth Montgomery played modern day witch Samantha Stevens who was married to Darrin Stephens. The episodes were very formulaic-Darrin would mess something up and through a sequence of events Samantha would put it right with a twitch of her nose whilst trying not to arouse the suspicion of the neighbours/friends etc.

The funniest thing about this show was how true to life it was. I think it's safe to admit that us males usually need a woman to sort out any problems we have. Okay, she may not literally do it with the twitch of a nose but a woman is always good at sorting a problem out. That was the crux of Bewitched. Darrin was always making mistakes and getting into a predicament but he could always depend on his wife Samantha to sort things out. In fact, he would have been lost without her.

All in all, a great comedy show with some truly hilarious episodes particularly any featuring Agnes Moorehead as Endora.

Trivia

In 2005, Rob Fulton became the first contestant on the Australian version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (1998) to win the million dollars, and the answer to the million dollar question was "Bewitched". The question he faced was "Which of these popular 60s TV shows premiered first" a) Bewitched, b) Get Smart, c) Hogan's Heroes, d) I Dream of Jeannie. Fulton thought about each show closely, the introduction, clothes worn, cars driven, et cetera and came to the conclusion that this show looked more like the 1950s or possibly early 1960s, "so I would say Bewitched", he said. Host Eddie Maguire then asked are you prepared to have a go to win the million dollars, Fulton said "Ed....why not". Moments later, he said I can't believe I'm saying this lock in Bewitched". After it was announced he had won a million dollars, Maguire confirmed that Get Smart and I Dream of Jeannie had premiered on September 18, 1965, while Hogan's Heroes was a day prior on the seventeenth, but it was one year earlier on September 17, 1964, when this show made its world premiere.


Quotes

Samantha: I'm not a bad witch! I'm a good witch!
Darrin Stephens: Her mother's a bad witch.


Goofs

The Astroturf lawn in the rear of the Stephen's home is also the green "carpet" shown inside the home. This is most apparent when there are shots of characters exiting or entering the home through the rear sliding glass door.


Crazy Credits

Whenever Samantha's cousin Serena appeared on the show, the credits for the episode listed the actress as "Pandora Spocks". This was Elizabeth Montgomery's idea as an inside joke. Elizabeth Montgomery played Serena.


Alternate Versions

Colorized versions of the black and white episodes have been syndicated. When the first DVDs were released in 2005, both black and white and color versions of the DVDs were available.
