Yeah, she captured the role perfectly; I sort of felt sorry for her at times. For some reason I just didn't have any sympathy for the second one; she sort of brought it on herself more it seems.

The black and white seasons 1 and 2 and season 3 with Dick York as Darrin were the best.Seasons 4 and 5 with Dick York as Darrin were okay,but something was missing.They should have ended the series when Dick York left,due to his health problems,because the show definitely was NOT the same when Dick Sargent replaced him as Darrin.Dick Sargent was a good actor who did better elsewhere in OTHER roles,but as Darrin,he was not very good in the role.I have heard that he praised highly Dick York who WAS(and Dick Sargent knew it,too)Darrin Stephens.ABC obviously did NOT realize that "Bewitched"was NOT a 1970's show,but a 1960's show.In short,the year 1969 was the beginning of the end for "Bewitched"

Thumbs up

According to the book Bewitched Forever, Dick Sargent said of Dick York: "He was excellent as Darrin." DY also praised DS and called him a "marvelous actor. He had a job to do and did it well."

I think the first couple of seasons were the best. The early Tabitha years weren't too bad either, but I actually preferred the "pre-children" episodes myself.

I agree, plus she was more likeable. Her expressions were priceless.

They sure were. No one could scream, jump, and yell "ABNER!!!" quite like Alice Pearce.

I definitely prefer the seasons with Dick York. I think my favorite is season 3. It's hard to choose though. I liked seasons 1-4 the best.

It is hard to choose which is the best of the DY era. I will admit that while there were certainly enjoyable episodes in Season 5, that's when the stories really became derivative. They weren't doing anything they hadn't done before, and of course several episodes were Darrin-less due to DY's health problems. That's why I still think they should've called it quits after Season 5. To me, Bewitched is a 5-season show.

I don't have a favourite season, but it is a hardly-known fact that there was to be a 9th season planned for bewitched, but Elizabeth Montgomery didn't want to come back after Season 8.

Also the stories of this season were still fresh and funny with some of the best episodes appearing during this season.
I agree; season 4.

I would say season 3, but that Diaper Dan episode, and the one with Robert Q. Lewis were real turn-offs, IMO.

There are a lot of good episodes in season 2...Tabitha's (Tabatha's) birth, where Endora thaws a little, the Double Tate episode where Darrin's wish turns him into another Larry...a lot funny in this episode, but especially when Sam keeps foiling the real Larry's entrance into his house.

So, season 2.

Season 1 is my favorite, because thatís when the show was still purely a romantic comedy, with some witchcraft on the side. With each subsequent season, the witchcraft became more prominent, and the romantic comedy receded (and eventually disappeared by the Dick Sargent years).
