A fantasy and romantic comedy series that focused on the life of Samantha Stephens (Elizabeth Montgomery), a genuine witch housewife, and his mortal husband Darrin Stephens (Dick York / Dick Sargent), a talented advertising executive for a New York firm. He obsessed with leading a normal, conservative lifestyle, and fearless enough to stand firm against the most powerful witch or warlock. Samantha was a clever role reversal of the women's rights movement. Quite simply, she enjoyed being a homemaker and raising a family, and had the strength of character to live her life on her own terms. She would usually act like a normal human being, as Darrin would insist, but situations involving the family and work usually comes up making her exercise witchcraft in an invariable manner to settle things. This tv show showed how true love can endure the most vexing of situations, even between a witch and a human. It shows how two different worlds are getting together and struggles that married couple face but still remained committed to each other and trying to make their marriage normal. Bewitched explored cultural issues of consumerism, materialism, human vanity, women's liberation, and mass hysteria, always within the shows fantasy concept. This classic tv series was aired from September 17, 1964 to July 1, 1972 on ABC network.
