does anyone else realize that it's April. That magazine was very premature. the show's anniversary is at the beginning of November. I think in November, there will be many tributes. Soap Magazine, the CBS magazine (probably, since they do have a days section), and maybe even the regular media newspapers will have blips about it. i bet the evening news might even have a blip about it. but all this won't be happening until November. late October the earliest.
I bet People will either come out with a special issue or have a nice article in the magazine about the show.
I just saw the Bewitched movie on bravo. It was Ok but i thought Will ferrell is an over the top actor (always was). I loved Shirley Mcclain as Endora. i thought she was great she looked and acted the part. I also saw her at the oscars last month and she still looks like she could play Endora. She looks similar to Agnes. Nicole Kidmen was OK.
Well i guess it decided to show it more frequently now because i never caught it before. Now they have two or three hourblocks a few days a week. Like they did a few months ago with Who's the boss. I also love that they have Golden Girls on there now. I wasn't a big Jeannie fan. I saw it years ago on other stations (probably TV land or Nick at Nite, or both.) I still remember watching Nick at Nite back when i was very young.It must have been the very late 80's because i remember watching all those black and white shows on it like Patty Duke and Mr. Ed. I'm sure i saw Bewitched too. all the shows were in black and white.
I looked at my TV cable guide and i guess it's only showing the color episodes. When it ends this run, it's going back to the third season...the first one in color. I have the first season colorized on DVD. I know a lot of people don't like it colorized but i didn't think it was too bad.
From what she said in an interview, Elizabeth was a little bored playing Samantha all the time and that's why she created Serena. Now what could have happend was that since she already played Serena in the episode when Tabatha was born, she just decided to tweek it a little and make her more fun and wild.
I liked the episode where Serena and Endora put a spell on a frumpy girl to make her into a vixon to lure Darrin into an affair. The girls father was furious that his daughter was going after a married man. Of course Samantha knew righty away something was going on so she went off and Serena came and pretended to be Samantha. That was funny because behind Darrin's back she was making kissing faces to the father and just rolling her eyes at Darrin. Then she took the father outback and tried to seduce him (All with Samantha's look.) It was pretty funny.
I also liked the one from the first season where Endora played Samantha. The Audience could see it was Endora because she had the eye make-up, better clothes and the voice was much deeper but it was funny. She ended up meeting a guy and they went everywhere together. Then you found out the guy was a friend of Darrin's and Endora had to tell him that she was married to Darrin. The guy made her say "I love Darrin." It was so funny. then at the end, when Darrin and Samantha had the guy over, Endora ended up comming (As Sam) and said she was Sam's twin sister so the guy didn't continue to think that Samantha was cheating on Darrin.
I did thinik Serena was a pre-Niki Smith. They shared the same taste in clothes. LOL
Samantha doesn't remind me of Viki but Endora does remind me a little of Dorian Lord. LOL Not really the clothes most of the time but the way she presents herself as the center of attention and very flamboyant.
I don't have Antenna station and I don't think it's been on Logo that long. I caught it a few weeks ago. Before that, they had Who's the Boss for a breif time. That's why i'm really getting into and enjoying Bewitched now because i don't know if it will stick around for long. It'll probably go "around the block" one more time and then be off. They just recently put on Samantha Who and Just shoot me (like i would watch those shows over Bewitched! I'd rather watch Will & Grace which has been on that channel for well over a year now.)
Is anybody else watching the mini-marathons of Bewitched on Logo? I'm so loving it because most of the episode I don't remember. I'm sure i've seen them before but it's been YEARS. I love it! My favorite is Serena but Endora comes a very close second. I also love all of Samantha's clothes. During those awful hippie wild colored late 1960's looks, Elizabeth Montgomery brought class to almost all her dresses.
They just yesterday started with episodes of the second Darrin, Dick Sargent. I think both Darrin's were good looking (except at the end of York's run when you could tell he was sick and loosing weight) and i love Dick Sargent for later in life comming out and everything but i'm partial to Dick York. I think his Darrin was funnier and a little more colorful.
I think at first I was a little overwhelmed with the new "crop" of cast Lorne hired at the beginging of last season but i think they've come into their own. It's OK to see one or two new people a season but there were several last season when Lorne "cleaned house." I know most of the old cast left on their own terms but there just seemed like a bunch.
About the black cast members, I just don't understand why it's been a big deal now when for the past 38 season, there have been maybe one or two (at one time) in the cast and there wasn't much "yelling" about it until now.
I liked the begining with Timberlake and Fallon. I felt sad for Carvey. his song just lost something and i think he knew it too. It just wasn't as good as it was when he originally sang it. He probably would have done better doing a church chat. He did good as Garth from Waynes World. I was never into the Calfornia people (whenever it came on). I liked Betty White and Bradly Coopers part, and loved seeing Laurine Newman on it but i was never a fan of the sketch.
I think they could have done more with Eddie Murphy. And Candice Bergen. She was the first woman host of the show but they just had her "co-host" the introduction to one of the singers (i think it was Miley.) I loved how they put the two newest cast members together to show audition tapes of the cast. And Jane Curtin on weekend update was good but i wasn't into those celebrities paying old characters.
Most of it was good. The musical guests were OK. It's sad that they didn't think much of Victoria Jackson. I don't know if she came late but they put her in another room with people and she ended up taking someone's seat in one of the top floors to watch the last hour of the show. Very sad. I really missed seeing Dennis Miller. I thought Nora Dunn would have shown up, but she might have been like Victoria and had to sit away from everyone. I guess you can't have everyone but for what it was, it was pretty good.
Saturday Night Live is turning 40. WIll anyone be watching the big anniversary. They are also doing a red carpet thing right before it. This is actually the third big anniversary thing they've done. They did one in 1989 for the 15th (i used to have it on video tape) and they did one in 1999 for the 25th. I'm looking forward to seeing all the old cast members. I see Garret Morris all the time on Two Broke Girls. Eddie Murphy is suposed to be there, the first time he's associated with the show at all since he left in the early 80's.
I've been watching the VH1 Clasic marathon. They are doing i think almost 500 episodes going all through the decades going backward so the hour before the big anniversayr, they will replay the first episode (although i plan on watching that the saturday night before because it probably won't be as edited.) It's all great fun to see my favorites from the late 80's like Victoria Jackson and Phil Hartmen.
I never even thought about going in that direction, but that's so smart! Hank is exactly who i had in mind...except for his little mid life crises in the 1990's when he and Bo bought motorcycles. The prominant D.A and the proper Victoria Lord together. I like it.
But if we couldn't get Hank, what do you think about bringing Bobby Blue back. Blair Underwood is still very good looking. By now Bobby could be a lawyer or someone important.
Now don't everyone hate me at once, but i would have perfered Viki to find someone more like Sloan at the end. He was someone more her style. I know Viki almost always went for a man who was against what she grew up with but I thought during her breif time with Sloan, she really showed her "Lord" colors. Because he had been in the army, he grew up with the same sense of honor and discipline that Viki did as Victor's daughter. I know their relationship was based on adultery but it was because she saw so much of her former lifestyle in him that she felt the strong power to him. And if you noticed, when they were together, Viki wore more proper busienss suits than she had before or since. It was her signiture look but she wore it more during the Sloan years than any time before. He encouraged her to be that person she was when she was growing up. Joe brought her into domesticity, Clint wanted her to be his cowgirl so he could protect her, Ben was the bartender who brought danger to her life from his mob past and Charlie had to many demons of his own. She loved all those men very much in different ways but Sloan was more her type. I never actually saw Steve Burke so i can't coment on him.
She grew up in that very uppercrust,"Downton Abbey" type lifestyle. Even though she "freed" herself from Victor's influence, she never really freed herself from the uppercrust glossy venere of the Lords because it had been incoded in her DNA. From the time she was very young Victor taught her how to be a proper Lord and as she grew up, she wanted him to be proud of her so she continued using those values. And when she became a mother (to the three children she remembered dand later the other two), she wanted to teach them all those lessons and values she learned by "leading by example". So by the time she was older and found out all his horrible secrets, she was still Victor Lord's very proper daughter because it was who she had always been.
I know they wanted to put her with Clint but i thought it would have been nice to let her find someone who would have shared her background. But it was nice for her to get back to doing stories for The Banner, something that the network version hadn't really delt with him many years. I didn't buy her putting 10 million dollars into a stock tip though. I know she was trying to save The Banner at any costs but she was always very cautious. She threw caution to the wind and lost. Then she thought about selling Llanfair to pay the Banner. But at the end, she agreed to keep Clint's money to keep The Banner going. I would have sold The Banner for a high price and then started another newspaper if she wanted. Or retired.
Sorry, I don't agree. I don't know much about Max and Gabrielle and i'm sure you are right about Max and Tina but no story was better than Viki and Clint. The only one that would compare was Bo and Nora. Viki and Clint were together for 10 years and they were happy for most of that time. They had major problems but when they came back together, it was pure magic. and it was great how they always came together when it came to the boys and later Jessica. Actually they were officially married for a little over 11 years and got their first divorce papers on Valintines day 1994 and then the offical final ones in early summer. No soap couple could compare to Viki and Clint when they were together and happy. Bo and Nora was a close second but that's it. I'm sure Max and Luna were good but Viki and Clint were soap royalty.
