Bewitched Season Two
Elizabeth Montgomery, Dick York, Agnes Moorehead
Colorized versionBlack and white version
38 episodes on 5 DVDs
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment 2005

The first thing you will do when you get Bewitched Season Two is jump to the second Dvd in this box set and play the episode where Samantha Stevens gives birth to Tabitha. Your curiosity will be well rewarded as it is quite a funny episode of this classic television sitcom featuring Elizabeth Montgomery, Dick York -the original Darrin-and screen legend Agnes Moorehead who is absolutely hilarious as Endora whose choice in makeup probably inspired Tammy Faye Baker.

Although And Baby Makes Three is a laugh out loud episode, the 37 other shows on this 5 DVD set are also great. A viewer will have great difficulty choosing which one to watch next although The Joker Is A Card (Disc 1 Episode 5) with Paul Lynde as the infamous Uncle Arthur is a must see as he plays practical jokes on both Endora and Darrin and even convinces Darrin he's got a little magic in him.  Of course, the Kravitz's are present so you get the last performance of Alice Pearce as Gladys Kravitz.

There are many other really good shows in this set. Most fans of Bewitched will enjoy the very comic episode 36 of season two when Samantha finds out if Darrin would have proposed had he known she was a witch. Follow That Witch is a two parter featuring PI Charlie Leach who learns about Samantha's secret and blackmails her into helping him out. Of course, there are a couple of shows that are of much lesser interest such as the one where Darrin believes Tabitha has the power to pick stocks but the vast majority of the 38 shows in this set are quite fun to watch.

Bewitched Season Two also features a bloopers bit titled Bewitched, Bewildered and Be-bloopered. The bloopers segment is hard to find as it is not indicated on the DVD jackets but it is on disc 5. The bloopers themselves are continuity errors and moments you can see the wires and not flubs by any of the actors on the series. Still, they are neat and give those who opted for the black and white version of this box set a taste of what the colorized episodes would look like (generally okay although the skin tones are sometimes overly tanned).

Sony Pictures did everything right in releasing Bewitched Season Two. Purists can get the original black and white version box set while others can choose the colorized episodes.  Each Dvd features nine episodes -disc five has two- and the box set comes in 3 double DVD slim cases. The picture quality is pristine aside from a couple of scenes where it is obvious stock footage was used.

Fans of this favorite now syndicated series will undoubtedly discover new things in each episode as you get the entire some 25 minute version and not the version you get on syndicated TV where a minute or two is chopped off to allow to squeeze in more commercials.
