    Anyone contemplating buying the current R2 release of Bewitched: Season 1 should be very wary. These episodes are black and white episodes that have been colourised and look awful. The R1 release is available in two versions the original black and white and this colourised version.

    Turning down the colour is no good as it just looks a faded grey as opposed to the crisp black and white of the R1 B&W version.

    The series was not filmed in colour until season 2.

    whats the blooming point of colourising them then?
    surly this cant be done to any realistic effect anyway?

    Used to watch this program years ago, always used to be on on channel 4 about tea time. Nice harmless family viewing :)

    I loved this series when I was (very) young; second favourite after F-troop. Haven't seen it for years but was considering renting a few episodes to try it out. I guess it has dated somewhat??

    I saw the trailer for the new film with Nicole Kidman and she looked to be an inspired choice of lead. I just hope that the movie lives up to expectations. And I'm still not sure what to make of Will Ferrell as a comic.

    I can't say I have been impressed with the trailers or reviews, I think I'd rather watch Practical Magic again:)

    Loved the original Bewitched TV series though, Elizabeth Montgomery was one the first women on TV I lusted after (well had that funny feeling anyway :blush: ) even when in B&W :)
