Product Description

Product Description

In every way, Samantha and Darrin Stephens are a perfectly normal, all-American couple, except for one small detail...Samantha's a witch! And although she promised her husband on their wedding night never to use her powers, Samantha can't seem to resist performing a quick trick or two to get out of a jam. Further complicating matters is Samantha's mother, Endora, who is appalled that her daughter married a mere "mortal" and does her spell-assisted best to break them apart!

Elizabeth Montgomery stars as Samantha Stephens, a pretty, typical American housewife who just happens to be a witch in this beloved comedy classic. Included in this magical DVD collection is the Emmy (r) Award-winning series’ entire first season- 36 episodes that introduce one of the funniest ensemble casts in TV history. Dick York as Samantha’s mortal husband Darrin, Agnes Moorehead as his witch-of- a-mother-in-law Endora. Alice Pearce as nosey neighbor Gladys Kravitz, George Tobias as her oblivious husband Abner and Marion Lorne as dotty Aunt Clara. Join them and a who’s who of ‘60s pop icon guest stars- Adam West, Raquel Welch, Peggy Lipton and Arte Johnson- in this enchanting, charming, and hysterically funny look at the suburban lifestyles of the witch and famous.

My stars! The first, and perhaps most magical, season of Bewitched still casts an enchanting spell. For escapist fantasy, this series, no doubt inspired by the play Bell, Book and Candle, broke significant television ground. The Stephens were sitcoms' first mixed marriage. Advertising executive Darrin Stephens (Dick York) was mortal, and wife Samantha (Elizabeth Montgomery) was a witch. According to a retrospective segment included on this four-disc set, the Stephenses were also the first couple to sleep in one bed! And Samantha's mother, Endora (the venerable Agnes Morehead), and father, Maurice (Maurice Evans, most popularly known as Dr. Zaius in the original Planet of the Apes, were TV's first separated couple. Surely, Darrin did for advertising what Dick Van Dyke's Rob Petrie did for comedy writing. And nose-twitching Samantha certainly gave Mary Tyler Moore's Laura Petrie a run for the money in the sexy suburbanite sweepstakes. This high-concept series' saving grace was that Darrin insisted that Samantha not engage in any "hocus-pocus." But in this first season, she would be compelled to use her extraordinary powers to right social wrongs (such as derogatory-witch stereotypes in the Halloween episode "The Witches Are Out"), champion the underdog (a lonely boy whose overprotective mother won't let him play baseball in "Little Pitchers Have Big Fears"), or to restore a troubled boy's Christmas spirit ("A Vision of Sugar Plums"). Or, she might just want to turn the tables on an insulting former girlfriend of Darrin's (the pilot, "Darrin, Take This Witch, Samantha").

York and Montgomery had palpable chemistry. They also received able support by a stellar ensemble of character actors. Alice Pearce and Marion Lorne would earn Emmys for their signature roles as busybody neighbor Mrs. Kravitz and dotty Aunt Clara, respectively. George Tobias portrayed oblivious. long-suffering Abner Kravitz, with David White as Darrin's boss, Larry Tate. In today's more PC climate, Bewitched may offend the "ban Harry Potter" crowd. But for baby boomers especially, this inaugural set will happily conjure up vintage television memories. --Donald Liebenson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I have noticed that there are two versions of the first season, one in the original B & W and the other a colourized version. What is really confusing is that although amazon is selling both of them and clearly advertized, most retailers are selling one or the other. So it is quite possible that someone could buy the B & W version, not realizing the other existed, and visa versa. Too bad both versions couldn't be incorporated into the same set so that people had the choice and also could see the quality of the colourization. It would be very disappointing to buy the colour one only to find out it was not well done.
This was one of my favourite series when I was growing up. It is very humourous, witty, and very good family entertainment. Although there have been many take offs on this original series, the original remains the best - no comparison! I think one of the differences is that the magic in the original series is a support for the storyline, whereas in some of the imitation series the magic seems to be overdone and takes over the main storyline. This is not the case in the original series though. Elizabeth Montgomery was really outstanding in her role as Samantha and I just love the part when she wrinkles her nose.
I'm still trying to figure out which version to purchase. I usually like colourized versions, but as I haven't read positive comments about it, I'm not sure if I want to get that this time. My fear is that there will be some disgruntled customers when they find out they would prefer the other version to the one they bought. I mean really, most of us can't afford to buy both versions!

Retro TV at its best - simple, fun and family-friendly entertainment. There's magic in each of us, no wonder we love seeing it in action even with a twitch of a nose or mouth. The extra features (interviews) were neat- the cast had to work so much harder without the magic of computer animation in those days!
The movie version (Will Ferrell & Nicole Kidman) wasn't able to recreate this magic. Hope to keep adding to my collection (got Season 1 & 2) for nostalgia....couch-potato style! :)

What's not to like about this wonderful show from the 1960's. One look at the beautiful Elizabeth Montgomery and you're "Bewitched". This 4 disc set with great artwork and packaging contains all 36 season one episodes. Sony Pictures have done a fantastic job with the audio & video transfers for this DVD release. It's obvious that great care went into the presentation of this show in color format. The colors are sharp and vibrant making the show even more fun to watch for me. While I'm not in favor of colorizing old TV shows, I've really warmed up to "Bewitched" in color. The video transfer is excellent and the digital 2.0 audio is clean and crisp. Bewitched with it's memorable theme song and characters is pure fun for the whole family.

I was really happy to receive the Bewitched tv serie! What's weird about the first season is that it's the only season with a french language version available (which is not even the french version that was presented on tv in the days). Anyhow, I'd rather watch it in the original language. All the DVDS worked very well and I'm very happy with this purchase! Thank you :)
