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.11: It Takes One To Know One
When Darrin starts searching for a “Miss Jasmine” for his firm’s perfume account, Endora seizes the opportunity to sow doubt in Samantha’s mind about her husband’s loyalty. The search for a beautiful model ends when Janine Fleur arrives. Both Larry and Darrin agree that Janine is “Miss Jasmine.” Samantha learns that Janine is a witch whom Endora has asked to captivate Darrin. Samantha warns Janine to keep away from Darrin. Janine, intrigued, keeps on with her original assignment. Darrin uses Larry Tate as his chaperone to keep him from becoming involved with Janine. Darrin and Larry go to Janine’s apartment to discuss details of the “Miss Jasmine” campaign. Janine doctors the drinks. Larry falls asleep and Darrin becomes amorous. Just as Darrin starts to kiss Janine, Samantha uses her witchcraft, and Darrin appears to Janine as a large ugly fish. When the campaign is completed, Samantha turns the advertising picture of “Miss Jasmine” into a caricature of Janine.
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.
