The other day, I made mention that I'd watched the first 6 episodes of Bewitched so I thought I'd give you my opinion. I can probably pick up the box-set for the same price, but I paid
Here is the opening theme in English and, even better though unembeddable, in Japanese along with several pics taken from the B&W Japanese opening. All the videos have been colourized and I must admit that they did a wonderful job. These dvds usually don't have any extras, but this one had a photo gallery, the monochrome opening and a 16 minute documentary about the colourization process.
From the Wiki in Japanese, I scammed the titles of the episodes.
1.花嫁は魔女だった／I, Darrin, Take This Witch, Samantha
2.おおスイートホーム／Be It Ever So Mortgaged
3.犬になったお客様／It Shouldn't Happen To A Dog
4.ままならぬママの魔女／Mother Meets What's His Name
5.アイデア騒動／Help, Help, Don't Save Me
6.豆選手万歳!／Little Pitchers Have Big Fears
In the first episode, they crammed a lot into it with their first encounter, wooing, wedding and honeymoon where we first meet the frightful Endora (NOT endearing)! It ends with a free-for-all with guest star the stunning & bitchy Nancy Kovack as Sheila Summers (while she was still pre-Star Trek's Nona, Batman's Queenie or Get Smart's Sonja) who is extremely catty and condescending to Sam but gets hers in the end.
"Here you see the average, normal, suburban housewife in one of her daily routine tasks: Preparing breakfast for her husband. With a modern kitchen and all conveniences at her disposal, the capable housewife moves efficiently through her tasks. Of course, sometimes there are problems, especially if your husband expects breakfast ready before he goes to work. But that's no problem for the average, normal suburban housewife, if she happens to be a witch."
There are many versions of this post's title track, but this is one of my favourites.
