I love both shows and I loved both Samantha (Elizabeth Montgomery) and Jeannie (Barbara Eden).  Both shows inspired shows like Charmed and another attractive magical blonde, Sabrina (Melissa Joan Hart).

Tough one. They were both good but Jeanne didn't have that downer of a mother-in-law always ruining it, so I voted for Jeannie. Who is cuter and more fun anyway.

Charmed girls.  Three for the price of one.

Oh wait, that's not a choice.  That said, I vote for Bewitched, as Samantha's less stupid, and I've never been into the whole harem outfit.

Actually she did.  There was an episode where Jeannie's mother put a spell on Tony in which he kept falling asleep.

Good news for Bewitched fans.  This Sunday TVland will have a Bewitched marathon honoring Bewitched's 40 anniversary on the air.

"How Not to Lose Your Head to King Henry VIII" was a classic episode. 

I loved Samantha in that Old England dress, though it got her wrapped in the arms of Henry VIII.

Jeannie just normally had one main outfit, Samantha had many sexy outfits.  Elizabeth actually designed most of what she wore for the show.

That's a different genre altogether, Pitt.  (Although I'll admit that it was the first thing I thought of when I saw the phrase "Magical Blondes".)

If you wanted to bring up anime, you could have mentioned the fact that Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie were the inspiration for Urusei Yatsura, which in turn inspired such shows as Tenchi Muyo!

Yeah, those and Buttobi CPU.  Anyway, I have to go bewitched Elizabeth Montgomery had a down-to-Earth beauty to her, that didn't need the harem garb to look sexy.  I'm pretty sure I geve her a nod in TVs hottest moms.

@boingo- Paul Lynde played Uncle Arthur on Bewitched, but made appearances on I Dream of Jeannie.

Little note in Bewitched episode, Samantha's Lost Weekend, Samantha had a huge uncontroling craving for food.  Elizabeth was pregnanut in real life and thus made in possible for her to eat so much food for filming.

That episode also featured Pat Priest, who played Marilyn on The Munsters.

I have a question for people in the UK.  I here that you guys get to watch Bewitched, but you've managed to computerized color Bewitched episodes that were originally in black and white.

How does it look?

The twitching nose owns. Bewitched.

And on a side note, Sabrina was a must watch show in our household a few years ago. My sister loved it, and I can't say I didn't like it.

I've always thought that Bewitched was better, and the little girl in it had the same name as one of my old cats. Score.

The guy on I Dream of Jeannie was was an astronaught, who activally went into space, and lived in the suburbs. It always struck me as the greatest thing ever. They just treated being an astronaught like any other job, he came home from work every evening like he'd just spent a day in the ratrace, he wasn't famous or anything, he even got in trouble with his boss.

Bewitched is coming out this year.  Starring Will Ferral as Darrin and Nicole Kidman as Samantha.  Any thought?  Will Kidman fill in the shoes of Elizabeth Montgomery?

Will Ferral is teh sex.

I think it'll be pretty good, I've been watching a lot of reruns on Prime recently, and I think that if Nicole dyed her hair blonde, she'd make a passible Samantha.

It'll suck, just like all movies based on old TV shows inevitably do.

It's time for Bumpy to get all involved in his own thread that is ignored by everyone else.

Yes, the film version will suck.  Film versions of 1960s and 1970s shows suck on principle.  I thought that, for a while, we'd run out of terrible shows to film.  Despite "Starsky and Hutch" and "Fat Albert," there weren't any remakes for the past two years, I think.  I guess I was wrong in hoping this stupid fad was over with.

What's next?  Film versions of 80s shows?  The "Family Ties" movie?  80s nostalgia is so overplayed.

At least Miami Vice will be directed by Michael Mann. Dukes of Hazzard is hopeless. You know a movie will suck when Jessica Simpson actually fights for the role.

I found out something interesting about Elizabeth Montgomery.  She did her last acting appearance on an episode of Batman, The Animated Series.  She lend her voice and the episode aired in 1995 the same year she died.  The episode aired before her death. 

It's funny that the movie is going to be release exactly 10 years later.

Nick at Nite held a similar contest in 1994, but that was just "who has the better powers".  I recall that Samantha won because her powers transcended time and space pretty much limitlessly, whereas Jeannie was bound by her Jinn-slave status.

As for overall hotness, though, I still have to go with Jeannie.

I learned that Jennifer Garner is in talks for being in a movie remake for I Dream of Jeannie.  It's expected to come out in 2006.

Elizabeth Montgomery died of Colon Cancer.  However, she out lived both Darrins.

Dick York died in 1992 due to Emphysema.
Dick Sargent died in 1994 due to Prostate Cance.

I Dream Of Jeannie, since I can't really remember Bwitched.
Go Jeannie go.

 All I can say ablout Garner, is that she's a no talent hack, and I spit on her. She ruins any role she takes on.

Eugh...speaking of I Dream of Jeannie, On that show American Dreams, they have Barbara Eden in an episode of it being played by...-shudder- Paris Hilton. Since she has no talent to speak of, she either 1.) bought the role out, 2.) slept with the producers, or 3.) all of the above. I think my money (or lack thereof) is on the third choice there.

In any case, I'll go with Bewitched. Witches rock over All-Purpose Bottled Slaves any day. ;D

Speaking of terms such as Japanese, ‘Bewitched’ and ‘I dream of Jeannie’ they reminded me of a book I read called ‘Women on the verge’ by Karen Kelsky.

The book suggests 'the West' was a symbol of both liberation and desire for Japanese women. It uses famous TV shows such as Bewitched and I love lucy...etc as examples of where Japanese women longing, idealisation for the West.

The book explains this is because in those days in Japan a family consisting over 5 people had to share tiny rooms with no privacy. The luxuries from celebrations such as Christmas, anniversaries where big cakes and presents shown on American TV attracted the Japanese audiences in particular girls and become the object of 'akogare' which means logging, idealisation.  This so called big image of love 'aijo' that is suggested by such shows gives Japanese girls dreams to want to be part of the American society or European society and their desire to want to marry a foreigner 'gaijin'.

Their dissatisfaction with women's opportunities in Japan, and their conviction that Western countries are 'better' further make them preferred to be seen walking down the street with a ‘gaijin’ boyfriend.

Interesting but controversial book...

I was referring to Sabrina, the TV show.  I was aware that the character has been around before Bewitched, but the Sabrina TV show has some influence from Bewitched.

I'm talking about some of similarities in plots.  The characters from Sabrina are based on the comics. The early episodes had somewhat of Bewitched flavor.
