Storyline

Darrin and Samantha Stephens are a young, bi-species married couple: he's a mortal human being, she's a witch, something which she does not divulge to him until after their wedding. Darrin just wants them to live a simple, mortal life, to which Samantha agrees, meaning no witchcraft and no telling any of their mortal friends and relatives of her being a witch. However, that no witchcraft vow is difficult to maintain if only because of Samantha wanting or needing to use it to get out of one scrape or another, and her relatives, especially her mother Endora, the most constant thorn in Darrin's side, against the marriage and the idea of denying Samantha's heritage as a witch. Mortals in their lives also add to their complicated lives: Darrin's friend and spendthrift boss, Larry Tate of McMann and Tate Advertising, who always wants Darrin to do all the work while the company gets all the glory and money; their nosy neighbors, the Kravitzes, Glady Kravitz who always arrives at the most ...

It is a crime that they stopped airing reruns
15 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

As I said, it's a crime that they stopped airing reruns (at least where I live). I remember being a kid and every night I would watch a double-bill of two wonderful magical (literally) programs on Nickelodeon- I Dream of Jeannie and Bewitched. I always liked Bewitched a bit more for reasons I can't explain. Bewitched never quite got laughs out of me the way Seinfeld and Friends do but it is still a very cute television show that I will always love. Elizabeth Montgomery (who unfortunately passed away at a rather young age in 1995) plays the part of Samantha (and she plays it very well, as all the actors on this show, who unfortunately also all died before the millenium- besides the Tabitha and Adam twins), a witch married to a mortal husband in the advertising biz. Her husband, Darrin hates her mother, Endora who hates him just as much- but has an advantage, if he p****s her off she can always turn him into a frog or a doormat or send him off to Iraq. The characters also include a nosy neighbor who is sure of Samantha's powers but no one will believe her (not even her husband), Darrin's advertising boss, Larry Tate (who fires and re-hires Darrin quite oftenly), Samantha's evil twin sister (also played by Montgomery) and Samantha's very clumsy aunt who couldn't turn a man into a frog if he were green and lived in a pond. All in all Bewitched is a very delightful show and I miss it so much!
