[narrating voice over]
Once upon a time, there was a typical American girl, who happened to bump into a typical red blooded American boy. And she bumped into him, and bumped into him.

Darrin discovers that his bride has a little secret.
This is the absolutely charming pilot for the classic series Bewitched. The premise of the series is laid out and many of the characters are introduced. Darrin, played by Dick York (the better Darrin), discovers that his beautiful new bride, Samantha (Elizabeth Montgomery), is a witch. Her deliciously evil and funny mother, Endora (Agnes Moorehead), is dead set against the union and gleefully mocks the mortal every chance she gets. My favorite villain in this episode is Sheila, Darrin's ex-girlfriend. She is played by the unbelievably gorgeous Nancy Kovak. She invites the newlyweds to a "casual" dinner party at her place that turns out to be a formal affair. The under-dressed Samantha endures insults and put-downs until she can stand no more. Breaking her promise to give up witchcraft, she unleashes her magical fury on Sheila with hilarious results. Sheila's false eyelashes fall off into her food and hurricane-force winds blow her wig and clothes off. I loved this episode as a child, and it still makes me laugh out loud.
