I was more into mysteries than comedy shows, did see a few of those episodes tho.
No, the first Darrin was better. It was NOT just you! :)
Ann: I was never a mystery fan myself. Comedy was always my fave. Well, that's okay, I still like you... ;^)Wings: Yeah the first was way better. I think he passed away a number of years ago..
I don't know if it was the actor, the writing or both, but the first Darren was a much more well rounded character. There was this undercurrent of playfulness, that lead to me believing deep down inside he cared for Endora or at the very least he didn't really dislike her.The scene between Darren and Endora when Tabitha was born or that episode where Endora was sickdid show some tenderness between them.The romance between the first Darren and Sam also seemed more romantic and playful. Lastly how the first Darren interacted with each of Sam's family members was more varied. You could tell he loved aunt Clara, sometimes found uncle Arthur funny, respected Sam's father, etc. It use to drive me crazy that the second Darren ALWAYS had that same sour puss no matter which "witch" relative he was speaking to.Sadly, because of what we later found out was due to illness, Dick York appeared in fewer episodes until had to left the show. But I have often wondered how the show would have continued to develop had he remained.I guess you can tell I have given this topic some thought. Bewitched was one of my favorite shows as a kid and I watch it today as it is available On Demand in my area.
I guess Dick had chronic back pain. You can almost see it in his face and in his voice that he wasn't feeling well.Dick was also in one of those mental hygeine films when he was a teenager. I love those old films.
I also liked Esmerelda (Alice Ghostly).

The first was better, here here. I loved uncle arthur. Paul Lynde was great as the center square as well.
Then there was Doctor Bombay. He had quite the life.
Yes, The first Darren was way better. Take it from me.. a Darren officianado. I've been called Darren Stevens my whole life. (My name is Darrin) LOL!
The animated opening sequence for Bewitched was done by Hanna-Barbera. Just thought you'd like to know.
