"Hey everyone the 28 episodes of Bewitched Season 7 is coming to us this February. This includes the Salem Saga episodes, everybody's favorite Christmas episode from Bewitched "Sisters at Heart", and "Sam's Old Man".
The Seventh Season begins with "To Go or Not to Go that is the Question". This is the Episode where Hepzibah demands that Sam come to the witches council which is held every one hundred years in Salem and finally in Part 2 Endora convinces Hepzibah to allow Darrin to go. The Salem Saga begins with the third episode of the 7th Season and continues for 6 episodes.
Also in the 7th season we see more of Esmeralda up to her fading magic and we see Sam's egotistical former boyfriend who turns himself into a dog. Two of the best episodes from Season 7 are "Samantha's Old Man" where Endora turns Darrin into a 73 year old man and the best Christmas episode Bewitched had during it's 8 year run "Sisters at Heart", and that dealt with racism. That episode was written by a tenth grade class at Thomas Jefferson High School in Los Angeles, California.
Other classic episodes are "Mother-in-Law of the Year" and the special effects in the episode are amazing. We see Samantha playing the tooth fairy in the 14th episode which includes two parts in "Mary the Good Fairy", which guest stars the all time hilarious Imaogene Coca. This season also is the last season to feature Uncle Arthur, and he makes his final appearance in "The House That Uncle Arthur Built". He leaves all his practical jokes at Sam and Darrin's to impress his new girlfriend, but soon realizes if she doesn't love him for him she isn't worth it.
One of the wildest episodes from Season 7 is where Sam and Darrin and Larry and Louise all trade places. Dr. Bombay is called in to fix the problem. Other episodes include "Darrin Goes Ape", "Money Happy Returns", Sam's Psychic Pslip", and "Samantha's Magic Mirror". In the later episode she tries to boast Esmeralda's confidence by helping her with her former boyfriend so each time she looks in the mirror she sees a gorgeous woman.
The majority of people who are Bewitched fans say out of the Dick Sargent years, that Season 7 is their favorite season with him. It is also one of my favorite seasons too. The Salem trip and the Christmas episode are some of the best that the show offered in it's 8 season run. So Bewitched fans get ready for Season 7 on February 3, 2009.
Note: During the hiatus period of season 6 & season 7 a fire destroyed the set of kitchen, so William Asher producer of the show and Elizabeth's husband at that time decided to take the show to film many scenes in Salem. The entire cast and crew were there and I think that's why everyone is so anxious for this special season."

"It has taken so long for Bewitched to come to dvd, when season one and two came out I thought, it's Bewitched the rest of the seasons will come shortly, wrong,its been a long wait and I almost regretted tossing out my VHS copies I made on tv long ago, but now they are coming out and I can see some episodes I have missed terribly by tossing my VHS out, if season seven is coming out now it can't be too long before the final season 8 is released with still some gem of episodes to the end, I think Bewitched was up for a ninth season but prouducer william asher was devorcing wife Liz and picked up Temperatures Rising to hurt her plus she was tired of the show after 8 years too, afraid of being typecast as Samantha she turned to tv movies and proved she was and awesome actress in many tv movies that were just wonderful and proved she could do more than Samantha (Which she born to Play). She probably would have done a ninth season had ABC not pulled the plug then. But at the time Sargent was signed to show ABC at the time opted to give Bewitched four more seasons but of course only three were completed.I don't think there is any one in the world who doesn't like the show its a trully timeless classic with so many episodes a rare gem in tv land THEY JUST DON'T MAKE THEM LIKE THAT ANYMORE!"
More Bewitching troubles and fun with Samantha and Darrin

"This is the first of the start of the last two seasons they both start on working vacations but this one starts in Salem and it was in actual Salem So it was interesting to see how they did that with all the special effects that are involved with that series. They had great Guest stars such as Ron Massak (Who would later become Sherriff Metsger in Murder, she wrote ) and Don Marshall ( Dan From Land of The Giants ) on a special Christmas episode which a group of students wrote .
So if you enjoyed the first 6 seasons then you will enjoy this season and it is a must for every Bewitched Fan"
A recycled sesaon that is just not the same without the orig

"All the great comedies have their day, and yes, they do have their bad ones right? No Aunt Clara (Marion Lorne), No real Darrin Stephens and of course no Alice Pearce (Gladys Kravitz). No offense to fans of the series, but when York died, the series should have died with it. Sargent is the epitomy of wooden, or should I say, robotic acting. I have no really good things to say about him, he just does not mesh well with Montgomery, and I really could care less when Endora whacks him with a spell! Sometimes I wish he would stay cursed and never to return!
The original loveable Darrin, (York) was so funny, whacky, and so believable with his relationship with Montgomery, it's hard to just let that go and believe that Sargent just magically became her new husband. It's something about watching York and Montgomery mesh so well on screen--- but when Sargent comes on, I'm just like "blah", whatever.
William Asher certainly had his work cut out for him, and he obviously ran out of ideas as this collection as there are only 28 episodes compared to the 35+ for the first few seasons. Season 7 kicks off with an unusual zealous eight-part story series involving Samantha and Darrin visiting Salem Massachusetts. It was a nice change of pace from that standpoint, and yes there are still some very funny moments especially when Sabrina gets back into the mix, but none of the funnier moments ever involve Sargent (cough cough). Only Montgomery saves the series once again. The new environment of being in Salem for the first 8 episodes gives the series some serious visual variation from the norm of them being couped up in their home from show to show.
One episode touches the edge of racism and is actually considered one of Montgomery's favorite episodes. I do give hats off to the theme considering when this was first shown, and some will really dig it from that aspect. It involves one of Darrin's clients turns out to be a bigot who thinks Darrin has a black child (assume adopted), Sam eventually puts a spell on the racist so that now sees everyone as black including Larry Tate, Sam and Darrin and even sees himself in the mirror as black. It was an interesting show, and I do appreicate the them considering all the racism that was going on in the world at the time and I believe it was shortly after the assasination of Martin Luther Jr.
As always, the lack of no Aunt Clara or the real Gladys Kravitz makes Season 7 all that more depressing. Thankfully it's not all a loss as we still got (David White) Larry Tate and (Endora) Agnes Moorehead still as the helm of the series and a growing up (Erin Murphy) Tabitha is still a welcome piece to the series. One thing I do appreciate is the improvement in the special effects, each season it just looks better to see the action on-screen and Asher is getting that down brilliantly.
All in all, there is really nothing really supremely memorable about this season. I did like some of the episodes, but fans will noticed, much of the stories from the first few seasons are back. Not saying it's a bad thing, but Asher is obviously running out of ideas bringing back stories from past shows.
Montgomery still pulls off being the star of the show and she still is a genius when she plays her half-witted cousin Sabrina. Recycled stories, no loveable Darrin, no Aunt Clara, no Uncle Arthur. Fans of the series will buy this series just to fullfill their need to complete the series until we see Season 8. But I think in the end, the only ones you'll want to watch are the ones where York was there to enjoy, not Sargent."
