211 of 229 people found the following review helpful By Robin Orlowski on April 15, 2005
Format: DVD
At a time when interracial marriage was still making many Americans anxious, this sitcom helped to diffuse that real-life tension through a suburban fantasy. This show thus focuses less on the supernatural and more on issues of family, community, and idenity.

Thirty six episodes make up this 1964-1965 season. A 1963-filmed pilot episode is included in this season for good measure.

Samantha (Elizabeth Montgomery) is a witch who fell in love with and then married the mortal Darrin Stephens (who, for the first couple of seasons, is played by Dick York). Darrin accepts her `heritage' only on the condition that she now refrain from using witchcraft and `settle down' to be a normal American middle-class housewife.

To the horror of her mother Endora (Agnes Moorehead), Samantha has agreed to the request. But, Endora ultimately worried over nothing. Samantha herself soon discovers that giving up witchcraft was an impossible promise. Conflict between her promise and an often-more complicated reality drive this series' storylines.

Tensions immediately flare in the first season when an old flame of Darrin's (Nancy Kovak) invites them to a dinner party. Because Shelia Sommers is so obnoxious, Samantha breaks her promise in order to avoid being shown up in front of her husband. Beginning with this episode, Darrin recognizes that he cannot control when Samantha does/does not use her magic, and can only make suggestions. Whether this advice is taken then rests entirely with Samantha.

In "Be it ever so mortgaged" we meet Gladys and Abner Kravitz (Alice Pearce and George Tobias) who are the Steven's next door neighbors. Ever the busybody, Mrs. Kravitz begins a series-long tirade about `something weird going on over there'.

"Bewitched: Season 1" is absolutely amazing to see in the new colorized version from Sony. I'll admit I was skeptical at first about purchasing the colorized version, however, Target ran a great sale on all three of the "Bewitched" seasons 1, 2 & 3, so I got them all. They did not have the Black & White versions available, so I got the color versions, and what a surprise to see these beloved episodes in glorious color! It's as though they were originally filmed in color and with no harsh glares or sloppy blurs, that usually accompanies colorized movies. One "reviewer" claims that the "Bewitched Season 1 -colorized version" has been edited for syndication and is missing omitted footage. And that the "Bewitched Season 1 -B&W version" is not edited and features the full-length episodes as they were originally aired. If anyone here has viewed both the "Colorized" and the "B&W" versions of "Bewitched: Season 1" and have found this to be true, please let us all know here in a "review." Here is a listing of "Bewitched: Season 1" episodes:

BEWITCHED: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON (36 episodes)

I, DARRIN, TAKE THIS WITCH, SAMANTHA: Darrin and Samantha as newlyweds, with Samantha struggling to find the words to tell her new husband that she's a witch. Darrin gets zapped back to the hotel lobby in repeatedly funny sequences as he starts to enter the bedroom again and again.

BE IT EVER SO MORTGAGED: Darrin and Samantha find their perfect home on Morning Glory Circle, with nosy neighbor, Gladys Kravitz getting her first taste of magical mishaps, as Samantha and Endora zap the front yard of the new house with grass, trees, and flowers!

Maybe I'm stuck in the past, but I don't think that (most) modern TV programs can compare to the great writing and acting from the older shows. Bewitched is one of those shows from my childhood that still shines brighter than anything new on the air today. Unless you subscribe to one of those specialty TV stations that replay the oldies, this DVD set is a must!

This classic is long overdue on DVD. Here's the episode Guide for Season One:

1. I, Darrin, Take This Witch, - This magical 1960s series begins when Darrin and Samantha first bump into each other. They realize that they have real feelings for each other and they decide to get married. What Darrin doesn't know is that Samantha is a witch.

2. Be it Ever So Mortgaged - Darrin is buying a new house and wants Samantha to check it out. Samantha and Endora go to 1164 Morning Glory Circle and have a lot of fun rearranging the place with magic.

3. Mother Meets What's His Name - Gladys is unable to convince Abner that strange things seem to be happening at the Stephens' home.

4. It Shouldn't Happen to a Dog - Samantha gives a dinner party to impress Rex Barker, one of Darrin's clients. Rex brings along his date, Babs Livingston, but advances on Samantha in the garden when he gets drunk. To teach him a lesson in treating people with respect, Samantha changes him into a dog.

5. Help, Help, Don't Save Me - Darrin is thrown in for a loop trying to find a perfect slogan for the Caldwell Soup account. Samantha gives him spectacular ideas, and Darrin accuses her of using witchcraft and submits his own ideas.

6. Little Pitchers Have Big Fears - Samantha meets Marshall Burns, a boy whose overprotective mother outlaws everything fun for kids. To get his spirits up, Samantha takes Marshall to a baseball game so he can practice for the team.

7. The Witches Are Out - Samantha does not like Halloween because of the image that people have of witches: Ugly, mean, and Wicked. Samantha tries to get Darrin to see her way when he is working on a candy account.
