Remastered in High Definition
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I agree that this isn't the greatest TV series ever made, but it is a lot of fun. I was excited when I found out it was being released on DVD, and ordered it right away. I am glad that I did, because I am extremely impressed with this release. If you watched the recent airings on TV Land, you'll remember the murky, faded picture quality that almost all of the episodes exhibited. Well, surprisingly Sony has outdone themselves with this release. The episodes look incredible! Sharp, crisp picture quality, with bright, vibrant colors. It looks truly incredible compared to what was shown on TV! Plus, it includes the rarely seen pilot episode with a different cast and location. All of this on 2 single sided discs housed in a standard size DVD "flipper" amaray. I wish that all studios would take notice of the excellent transfer used for this set, and apply it to other TV shows that are released on DVD."
NOT AS BAD AS PEOPLE ARE MAKING IT OUT TO BE!

"I love the show Tabitha, maybe it's not quite as good as Bewitched but it's a cute show with highly entertaining episodes and as for the charsm of Lisa Hartman, well I think she is very pretty and she's pretty darn cute as Tabitha!
I aslo like Robert Urich. The character he played started off kind of dorky but they started to tone him down after several episodes but unforunately it was canceled so soon.
It could be magic...if it tried a little harder...

"This spinoff series to Bewitched, one of the greatest sitcoms of all times, tries very hard to capture the magic of the original but just misses. It's cute in it's own way and fun to hear the soundeffects from the original series reused as well as some of the characters such as Dr. Bombay (played again by Bernard Fox) and the Kravitzes (played again by Sandra Gould and George Tobias). And who can deny how cute Lisa Hartman as Tabitha is.
The problem though is that the characters don't seem to be fleshed out until the last couple episodes but by then it was too late. And the fact that this show started in 1977 only five years after Bewitched ended makes you wonder how Tabitha grew up so fast.
The video and sound on this DVD release is awesome! Crystal clear and vibrant!
If you're looking for some light fun you should check this out."
Could It Be Magic

"Concededly there was a lot of room for improvement, unfortunately ABC never gave the show a chance to develop further. For a 1970s show, it was par for the course. Lisa Hartman definitely had what it took to carry her own show. And she and the actor who played Adam resembled their TV parents enough to make it seem plausible. "Tabitha" is charming in its own way. And yes, the guest appearances of original characters like the Kravitzes and Dr. Bombay were welcome delights (only wish Ms. Montgomery and Uncle Arthur showed up too). The original pilot included on this DVD is just a dull re-telling of the original Bewitched pilot. Too bad this show wasn't given the opportunity to turn into what could've been another classic."
