Watch Bewitched

Bewitched is a television sitcom about Samantha Stephens, a young looking, though very old witch, married to Darrin, a regular guy without any special powers. When Samantha married Darrin, she promised to live as a typical housewife and not use any of her spell-casting ability. However, her mother Endora, who disapproves of her daughter's non-magical husband, often meddles in the lives of her daughter and son-in-law, casting spells on Darrin that cause confusion among his neighbors, like the nosy Gladys and her husband Abner; friends; and boss, Larry Tate. Although she tries to keep her promise to lead a life free of spell casting, Samantha usually has to step in and cast a spell with a twitch of her nose to protect her husband and hide from all of the non-magical people affected the fact that a spell was cast. Samantha and Darrin's children, Tabitha and Adam, seem to have inherited their mother's special powers.

Bewitched is a lighthearted show that tackled some serious subjects, such as racism, which was a hot-button issue when the series aired. In one episode, Samantha and Darrin's daughter Tabitha cast a spell on herself and a black friend to make both of them covered with polka dots so that no one would treat them differently. Once again, Samantha was forced to twitch her nose and undo the spell cast by her daughter to keep mortals unaware of their spell-casting powers.

Bewitched was an extremely popular television show among viewers when it aired from 1964 until 1972.

  • Larry has arranged for the Tates and the Stephens to spend the weekend as guests of the Duke of Whitset at his castle. The castle is authentically English, complete with its own ghost. The ghost takes a liking to Samantha and when she rebuffs him, he takes over Darrin's body.

CBS Planning Remake of Classic 'Bewitched' TV Series...Is 'Harry Potter' to Blame?

My first reaction upon learning that CBS was planning a reboot of the 1960's TV show "Bewitched" was something along the lines of "oh, that makes sense." Why wouldn't they? CBS already rebooted "Hawaii Five-O" and ABC rebooted "Charlie's Angels," and "Wonder Woman" would be gotten back on TV as well if the pilot hadn't been totally underwhelming.
