Bewitched and the Repressed Goddess

Ever watch that old TV series Bewitched? Husband Darin, a mortal, marries Samantha, a witch. She tells him the truth on their wedding night and he forbids her to use her magic powers. This she does in a spirit of self-sacrifice, bowing to the ego of her husband. This series came out at the same time as women's liberation, as a kind of tongue-in-cheek commentary on woman as all powerful, yet subjugating herself for her man.

I think there is a lot more going on in this show than meets the eye.

Yeah, I grew up watching that show, love watching the re-runs. Love Endora, Uncle Arthur and Dr. Bombay. When those three show up in the same show -- priceless!! Oh, I forgot about Aunt Clara and Esmeralda they were great too!!

**** York (the first Darrin) when he was incapacitated and couldn't work anymore, used his fame to help homeless people. He seemed such a sweet guy - please don't be mean.

What amazes me about Elizabeth Montgomery is how great she looked and how much younger than her biological age. She was acting decades before with big stars. She was an icon.

I think it's hilarious how some of the regulars showed up again and again playing DIFFERENT characters! And sometimes the skits were redone. I guess the producers wanted more for their money.
