Bewitched is a fantasy sitcom chronicling what happens when a witch and a mortal fall in love and get married in 1960s and ’70s suburban America. At the very center of the show is Elizabeth Montgomery’s portrayal of a good-hearted witch named Samantha. A strong, independent woman with the world at her finger tips (or at the twitch of her nose), she gives up her witchly life to do things the “mortal way”. Her mortal husband Darrin Stephens (played by Dick York, and later Dick Sargent) is a talented advertising executive with McMann & Tate. He obsesses with leading a “normal life” where one works hard to earn a good living for one’s family. He constantly struggles against disapproving witches and warlocks, like Samantha’s powerful mother, Endora.
Season 1 Ep.04: Mother Meets What’s His Name
Gladys is unable to convince Abner that strange things seem to be happening at the Stephens’ home. Gladys, June Foster, and Shirley Clyde, with their sons, visit the Stephens’ home to welcome Samantha to the community, and to humiliate Sam in the process. When the boys pester Endora, she uses magic to tie the three of them up. On leaving, Gladys tries to point out to her friends that it would be physically impossible for three boys to tie themselves up. Later Darrin returns home for his first meeting with Endora, and they never actually get along. Endora threatens to turn Darrin into an artichoke, but Samantha says that she would turn herself into an artichoke if that happened.
The young executive of an advertisement agency, Darrin Stephens marries a beautiful woman, Samantha Stephens. On their honeymoon, Sam discloses a secret to him: she is a witch with magic powers. He makes her promise him that she will live like a mortal, without using witchcraft and spells in their lives, but sometimes she uses her magic to help Darrin and herself. Sam’s mother, Endora does not accept her mortal son-in-law, hates him and can hardly say his name correctly. In the suburb of Morning Glory Circle, where they live, their curious next-door neighbor Gladys Kravitz suspect Samantha, but can never prove the weird situations she sees to her husband Abner Kravitz. Darrin works in the McMahon and Tate ad agency with Larry Tate, who is married to Louise Tate. Samantha frequently receives her witch aunts in her house, specially her sweet old Aunt Clara.
