Coming Next Week: What's Bertie Watching?

Bertie has had a chance to watch a lot of television lately...for the last thirteen years or so.  He and Oscar enjoy watching their favorite shows together.  Much like me, Bertie enjoys the fantastic classic television shows, and, one of his favorites is the beloved comedy Bewitched starring Elizabeth Montgomery as Samantha Stephens, the plucky "witch with a twitch."  Agnes Moorehead, the enchanting character actress, played her mother "Endora."  Quite famously, Dick York played Sam's mortal husband Darrin Stephens from 1964 to 1969 while Dick Sargent filled Darrin's wingtips from 1969 to 1972.  

Next week, Bertie will be offering up his thoughts on Bewitched and the important part that the show played in shaping not only the television landscape of the 1960s and early 1970s, but, how it continues to influence programming today.

To tide you over until next week, here are some of my...I mean Bertie's...favorite images from the show.

Though it's colorized (which I loathe), here's one of my favorite episodes from the show's first season (the first two were filmed in black and white).  This is Episode 4, "Mother Meets 'What's His Name'."
