I’ve been on a Bewitched spree as I make my Christmas crafts. I find it delightful that full episodes are available on Youtube…I’m already 2/3 of the way through season one! I adored this show when I was little and it was on Nick at Nite, always running to my best friend’s living room with bowls of ice cream for ‘Bewitched Be-wednesdays’. Jeannie was of course a close second (though even at seven the whole “master” thing was off-putting). It’s amazing that the show still holds up (albeit remaining an odd sixties combo of American optimism, exaggerated gender roles and sweet innocence), but I guess good television knows no era. I have always thought Elizabeth Montgomery to be enchanting, and Endora wickedly amazing. And as a vintage-lover I’m really getting a kick out of the clothing and set styling. Samantha’s clothes are outstanding!
I also like to think that Sam’s refusal to ever settle into being a “normal suburban housewife” was a little feminist uprising through nose twitching. You can’t stop an amazing woman!
