This is retro television at it's very best. Darren and Samantha have a "mixed marriage" because she is a witch, and he is a mortal. Obviously a good witch, because she is quite pleasing to the eye. Darren works in advertising in Manhattan and they live in the suburbs, although the weather is strangely like that of Southern California, except on Christmas Day, when it snows.

Due to Darren's wishes, they are trying to live a "normal life", without supernatural help or interference, but it never works out that way, due to various glitches and Samantha's meddling relatives.

What makes this show work so well is the casting. Elizabeth Montgomery was perfect in this role. She has been described as a sunny, optimistic blonde, always cheerful in spite of trouble, as she uses her wits, and occasionally witchcraft, to solve problems.She was also a woman deeply in love with her husband as Samantha, and also in real life, with producer William Asher.

The show is a cornucopia of 1960's trivia and culture, which makes it so fun to watch. Everything from the clothes, to the interior decorating, to the menus and drinks. We see Sam and Darren having coffee after dinner, looking at the paper, trying to decide on a movie at the local cinema. This was in the days before HBO and Netflix!

Season Three was probably about the peak of the creative quality of the program. There are a couple of clunkers in this season, but most of these shows are very good. I especially loved seeing the "Benjamin Franklin" episodes, after Aunt Clara accidentally conjures him. Ben has a scrape with the law, and there is a court hearing with a judge who becomes convinced the man truly is Benjamin Franklin. The hearing reminds me of Miracle on 34th Street.

It is interesting to see the show begin to reflect the rapid changes in society that were occurring during the decade.The show is now in color, and it definitely has a more modern edge. But Samantha still wears white gloves for certain occasions.

Bewitched was by far the best of the supernatural family comedies that were popular in the 60's.The quality and variety of the scripts was excellent, especially in the first few seasons. There were also some deeper themes involved that Ms Montgomery would regularly express. Themes of love, perseverance, diversity and sacrifice. I watched it as a child in the 60's, and those values had an enduring effect on me.

The quality of the show eventually declined, and the Ashers divorced. We are ephemeral, and not supernatural beings after all. Even so, each Bewitched episode is a little slice of life of a happier and more innocent time.

Verified purchase
Bewitched, still one of the best shows in televesion history as withstood the test of time in full force without any doubts. Way before it's time, Bewitched still manages to make me smile with every single episode. Season 3 is no exception. We luckily get to see the funny antics of "Marion Lorne" Aunt Clara one last time as she sadly dies of heart attack shortly after season 3 was finished. Marion Lorne is surely everyone's favorite Aunt, I still laugh everytime she comes down that chimney.

Sadly, "Alice Pearce" is nowhere to be found. She was, without a doubt, the best Mrs. Kravitz. She died shortly after Season 2 with cancer. Sandra Gould, her replacement does a respectable job, but her antics, spunk and acting abilities are not up to speed with Alice Pearce and it shows in Season 3. Thankfully, everyone is back and and going full force. Mr. Kravitz (George Tobias) is still the ultimate neighbor who still thinks his wife is on drugs for the things she sees across the street. His lines are are hilarious as they were back in the days.

Endora "Agnes Moorehead" and Darrin "Dick York" go at it full force in season 3 and are funnier than ever together. Talk about battling it out full force. Endora still refers to Darrin as being "Dumbo, Dagwood, Dumpy, Darwin and Dopey" and brings a laugh to me everytime when she never remembers her name. The storylines are still fresh and not one of them is recycled from past seasons. This might be one of my favorite seasons, I'll have to wait for Season 4 until I can be sure.

Tabithia plays a pretty crucial role this season as she is coming to her own as becoming a full fledged toddler with witchly powers of her own. She's as adorable as she was in the 60's and you can't help to smile everytime she is on-screen. Just a quick factoid, Diane Murphy and Erin Murphy both played the role as Tabitha to give each other breaks from shoots. Can you tell them apart??

Bernard Fox is also introduced this year as Dr. Bombay and is is a fine addition to the Bewitched family. A little tidbit, Bernard Fox also played a role in James Cameron's blockbuster hit movie Titanic. He was Col. Archibald Gracie who always wanted to go into the smoking room for a brandy with the rich boys.

David White, still playing the ultimate role as Darrin's boss still hasn't determined what's wrong with the Stevens and has yet to learn that Samantha is a full fledged cauldron stirring witch!

Dick York, still the best Darrin of them all, is going strong during all 33 episodes of season 3. Unbeknownst to many, Dick York suffered a severe back injury earlier in his life and struggled in pain during every shoot of Bewitched. You'll notice during some of the episodes, you'll catch him lying down on a couch while doing some of the shoots -- it was then the pain was contained. As each season progressed, the pain just worsened and eventually ended his carreer all together. During the middle of Season 6, his carreer as Darrin came to an abrupt end. "Bill Asher comes to the hospital to see York and says, 'What do you want to do, Dick? Do you want to quit?' I said, 'If it's all right with you, Billy.' And Bill Asher and I hugged for the first time."

Amazingly, through every episode of Bewitched, you would never notice the severe pain he went through making us all laugh. It's a sign of his spirit and love for acting and he simply wanted to make people laugh and remember what he does best. Rest in peace Dick, we'll always remember you.

Great show - not technically perfect, but worth the price...
Verified purchase
Loved the show, too bad they didn't handle the transfer better. Still, at the price, not a bad addition. As for the cast, it's a damned pity we lost Elizabeth Taylor at such a young age, and Agnes Moorehead, an amazingly talented veteran of stage and screen, skillfully added to her character in the show. To those who complain that Dick York was absent from some episodes - read his bio - he was suffering from a severe back injury which occurred a few years earlier while filming "They Came to Cordura" whicn never healed properly. It's amazing to me that he was able to continue working at all after that!... His generosity in helping raise funds for the needy (which he himself became near the end of his life) was also most noteworthy. I urge you to learn more about this underrated actor.
-One last note... While I'll have to agree that the writing for seasons 1 and 2 does seem better, and the sad loss of Alice Pearce, who truly "owned" the role of Gladys Kravitz. This is somewhat offset by the introduction of more quirky characters and the development and growth of Aunt Clara, Uncle Arthur, etc., as the series continues. (Until the end of York's role as "Darrin",that is, at which point as far I'm concerned, was the end of Bewitched)

Excellent fun; Superb Memories

In Many respects, the most well known shows will be from this season for many people. I guess they selected the most from the first colour season when in syndication. But, when handled well, these shows work very well in Colour as they did in Black and White, especially when Directed by William Asher. Asher seemed to be able to reduce the amount of "wire" one could see on camera, where-as other directors just let it show, and I guess that is why Asher was kept on as a Production Consultant.
The DVD is well done, with some Menu variation, but is overall basic, except for the advertising that hits you on the start of disc 4, but can be easily skipped over. And this is at least the second set that the sleeve notes have minor errors ( the Tates son is misnamed on the episode where Clara duplicates the son), and I'll let you spot the rest.
Dr Bombay appears at the end of disk 4 ( but had appeared earlier, chronologically, in JEANNIE).
You will also notice absences of Darrin ( the first and only genuine, Darrin), and this is supposedly due to his back injury and the hectic production schedule.
Anyways, whilst the extras are basically non-existent, the collection is superb.
Listing the shows in a review appears incredibly superfluous, especially when there are web sites that cover this aspect much better, and get the details right..
This is a fun series, and entertaining series, and, if its important to you, very family friendly.

Timeless Television Magic
Verified purchase
I just added the third season of this beloved, timeless television show to my collection and now own the complete set. I can watch these episodes over and over. They are sheer delightful escapism and entertainment. Growing up in the 70's and early 80's, I sat glued to countless reruns of the series, starting from the colour episodes. The early black and white ones were actually unfamiliar to me, as was the actress who first played Mrs Kravitz (I now think I actually prefer her in the role, the second one was a bit snooty and not as funny).
This aside however, I find the third season equally enjoyable as the first two, particularly because my favourite character; dear, sweet, bumbling Aunt Clara appears often. As a child of the colour generation, I really don't think I would enjoy Bewitched as much in B&W, and I thought they did a fine job of colourizing 1 & 2. You'd miss so much, the vibrant colours of the 60's retro settings and costumes, not to mention Endora's shock of orange hair and blue eyemakeup.
In retort to one reviewer's rather harsh comments: I think Elizabeth Montgomery looks equally gorgeous in this season. A truly, and naturally, stunning woman, long before botox and liposuction. She's slimmed down a bit here and has lost some of the earlier softness to her face, but to say she looks 10 years older..hardly. Keeping in mind too, this was moving into the late 60's period and fashions, and the visual style of these episodes is simply a product of the times, suntans, bouffy hairdos and all. I also ,for one, found the presence of baby Tabitha a sheer delight, what a truly exquisite child. There were actually two child actors that played her, I know (I think they were sisters or twins?) both beautiful, but I'm refering particularly to the main one seen in the close ups, talking and nose twitching scenes, who was just an absolute doll.
Along with the Aunt Clara episodes, of which the 'Accidental Twins' would have to be the funniest. The most hilarious situations and precious comedy, are born from where Endora casts her spells on Darrin. The best of this series is undoubtedly 'I remember you... sometimes', that sees Darrin become, thanks to his Mother in Law's usual tricks, a 'know it all' expert on every subject; much to the annoyance of Larry and their client. I think I appreciate Dick York's amazing comic timing a lot more now than when I was growing up, he really was the quintessential Darrin, an empathetic character, but who's male pride and big mouth always land him in trouble with his unusual in -laws. He may not be the Rock Hudson of leading men, true, but he had a lovely chemistry with Montgomery and you truly believed the love they had for each other, as a couple in the show. Also, he had to be your 'Mr Average', otherswise he wouldn't have been such a target for Samantha's family to pick on. It also brings more depth to Samantha's genuine love and devotion for him. Agnes Moorehead as always, is wonderfully theatrical as Endora. In a sense she became a metaphor for the Mother in Law from Hell, not to be messed with. What a fun role that must have been to play. I just can't see anyone else playing Samantha but Elizabeth, she has such warmth, charm and charisma in the role. I couldn't really take Nicole Kidman at all in the remake, I must confess.
This season sees the return of my other favourite, Uncle Arthur, in a couple of episodes where he battles it out with Endora,( Endora Moves in for a Spell and Twitch or Treat),and also introduces the eccentric, Dr Bombay (There's gold in them thar pills), who like Uncle Arthur, actually appeared as a different character in earlier shows. The only one missing is Cousin Serena. As well as the regular witchly visitors, there's an array of historical and famous figures being conjured up throughout season 3, from Benjamin Franklin and Queen Victoria to Sigmund Freud, who incidently does a very convincing and amusing impression in an episode which pokes fun at modern Psychoanalysis in relationships.
The Complete Third Season is a continuation of the vintage quality television sitcom that was Bewitched. They just don't make them like this anymore. Obviously a labour of love for its creators and most innovative for its time, it will be enjoyed for generations to come. Bewitched is a fun, fantasy comedy that captures (and reminds us of) a simpler and more innocent time, and makes us wish we could live in Samantha's world where a wave of the hand and twitch of a nose fixes everything.

I am so happy to have these!
I grew up with them the “1st time around”
My sister & I named our children from the show..
My daughter Samantha and her daughter Tabatha…
(Our Mom got the hint 😉)
I have been watching them again with my grandson and he is enthralled also !
To have an 11 year old to find a tv show so engaging in these “device” times truly shows a CLASSIC!

I Love Bewitched!

Bewitched is my favorite television program of all time! I own Season 1 and 2, and I couldn't wait to receive Season 3 (pre-ordered, of course!)!

Season 3 includes many of my favorite Bewitched episodes, and I have been having so much fun watching them all again. These are truly the "classic" episodes.

However, I wonder if there are any other sharp-eyed fans out there who noticed an error on the DVD case? Episode 4 on Disk One is called Accidental Twins (I absolutely love this episode!). The description on the case reads, "While trying to entertain Timothy Tate, Aunt Clara accidentally turns him into twins, a spell she can't remember how to undo." As any hard-core Bewitched fan knows, Larry and Louise Tate's son is named Jonathan, not Timothy. Did anyone else notice that?

Anyway, if you love Bewitched, you will really enjoy the third season! I'm so happy it's finally out on DVD!

Weaker Witchcraft..

Yes, some other reviewers have it right when they say it doesn't match up to the first two seasons. It's true for much of season 3, and continues into season four, with some episodes that seem to lack some of the cleverness and entertainment value of the first 2 seasons. The original Gladys Cravitz is sorely missed. Two episodes that I really enjoyed in Season 3 were on disc 4, "No More Mr Nice Guy", where Endora makes Darrin suddenly hated by people, and "It's wish-craft", where Tabitha is going through a phase where whoever she wishes for will appear. And she keeps bringing her father. As Darrin's in-laws are coming for the weekend, Sam enlists her mother's help in preventing Tabitha in her "wish-craft" - there's a really funny scene in this one where Darrin gets rained on by this little thundershower that follows him wherever he goes.

Yes, there are some fun moments in this season i guess. Another great one is on the second disc "Oedipus Hex" - to prove Darrin would be a pain if he had too much time off, Endora 'spikes' the popcorn and suddenly Darrin decides to take the day off and then anybody that comes by and eats the popcorn decides to stay and take the day off with Darrin, and they're all just as high and happy as kites. It's funny watching the milkman, the repairman and the cop suddenly drop their work persona and start bantering with each other as if they were suddenly old friends. "A Gazebo Never Forgets" is another good episode on the same disc 2, where a child's stuffed elephant turns into a real one. Season 3 was released in 1966 and you can feel the times a little. It's got it's charm, this season, but in comparison to season 2 I'd still have to say it's come down a notch overall. The witchcraft is weaker.. though there are some 'bewitching' moments.
