|The magic on Morning Glory Circle continues as Samantha (Elizabeth Montgomery), Darrin (Dick Sargent), and Endora (Agnes Moorehead) return in Bewitched: The Complete Sixth Season. Notable for being Dick Sargent's first season as Darrin.|
Samantha, a powerful member of the society of witches that has lived apart from (and disdained) humanity for many centuries, falls in love with a mortal, Darrin Stephens. Much to the disgust of most of her family, she vows to give up witchcraft and become an ordinary suburban housewife, raising a family (bearing Tabitha and Adam).
Never able to give up her heritage completely, the friction between the matriarchal, moneyless society of her birth and the patriarchal, capitalist society of modern advertising drives the comedy over eight seasons and 256 episodes, from 1964 to 1971.
This four disc collection includes all 30 episodes from The Complete Sixth Season of Bewitched!

Editor's NoteABC aired the sixth season of their long-running sitcom BEWITCHED in 1969. The role of Samantha Stephens's (Elizabeth Montgomery) husband, Darrin, was played by Dick Sargent in this season, replacing Dick York who had to leave the show due to an ongoing illness. The show is based around the mismatched couple, who attempt to overcome the fact that Samantha is a witch and Darrin in a mere mortal. Samantha's family, led by her mother, Endora (Agnes Moorehead), never approved of the marriage, and the overbearing mom regularly casts wicked spells on the beleaguered Darrin. Despite all these obstacles, Samantha and Darrin somehow manage to stay together, and this wickedly funny season continues in much the same vein as the preceding five.Among the highlights and notable plot points in these 29 episodes are the birth of Samantha's second child with Darrin, who is immediately placed under a spell by Endora's estranged husband, Maurice (Maurice Evans); a subtle turning-of-the-tables as Darrin is given a watch with magical powers to match Samantha's own; and a quirky turn of events as Endora is finally forced to be nice to Samantha's husband. The show is thoroughly ingrained in the pop culture landscape and its continuing appeal has led to remakes, spin-offs, and a contemporary updating of the characters in the 2005 BEWITCHED feature film. This nostalgic collection brings viewers a step closer to the end of the show's eight-season run, but is full of all the magical ingredients that made the show such an endearing favorite across the globe.
