The continuing legacy of 'Bewitched.'

Surfing around yesterday after watching a repeat of Bewitched and found some interesting facts about the show and it's legacy

From Wiki:

"Bewitched is an American situation comedy originally broadcast for eight seasons on ABC from 1964 to 1972, starring Elizabeth Montgomery, Dick York (196469) and Dick Sargent (196972), Agnes Moorehead, and David White. The show is about a witch who marries a mortal and tries to lead the life of a typical suburban housewife. Bewitched enjoyed great popularity, finishing as the number two show in America during its debut season. "

Spinoff

In 1977, a short-lived spin-off entitled Tabitha aired on ABC. Lisa Hartman plays Tabitha, now an adult working with her brother Adam at television station KXLA.

In the Charmed fourth season episode, Lost and Bound, Phoebe worries about her ability to be a good wife and notes the only married witch she can think of as a model is Samantha Stephens.

Bernard Fox appeared as Dr. Bombay in two episodes of the supernatural-themed daytime soap opera Passions. This show also featured a character named Tabitha, a middle-aged witch whose parents were Samantha and a mortal, Darrin, and who names her own child "Endora."

1. Bewitched was such a great show...

What always amazed me is how I look back and think that Paul Lynde (Uncle Arthur) was on all the time--he wasn't. In fact he was only on a relative handful of episodes, but damn if he didn't have lasting impact.

I loved the cast--even the two Darrins, though the first was the better of the two IMO. Great show. Still sad to think Elizabeth was taken by breast cancer so relatively young.

2. When I was a kid

I felt guilty for watching both I Dream of Jeanie and Bewitched because I was in love with both Jeanie and Samantha and it seemed like I was being unfaithful to one while I watched the other.

Damn, the dopey things kids think.


But I'm still in love with both of them.
