The return of Samantha Stephens
I don't know whether to cry, to laugh, or to cry again: the British entertainment site Digital Spy is reporting that the 1960s American sitcom Bewitched will be "reinvented" by the BBC.
Now if you were to rank all the women who influenced my formative years, Samantha Stephens comes in somewhere among the Top Ten, and the last time this story was remade it didn't quite jell, but I definitely want to catch a glimpse of how it works out as a Britcom though I draw the line at Rowan Atkinson as Uncle Arthur.

I count her among the top ten guiding female influences of my youth, as well.
Remake + Samantha = Heresy
Mmmmmm. Elizabeth Montgomery...
Amen. And we all know - well, all smart men know - that Samantha could have kicked Jeannie's butt any day of the week.
Mmmmmm. Barbara Eden...
Sounds sacrilege to even think about a remake (though Digital Spy is usually an accurate source) and it makes a change to hear of a Brit remake of a US series (it's too often the other way round). Can we have the real Dr Bombay though just for authenticity (wasn't Bernard Fox briefly in Titanic?).Aunt Clara is my personal template for my own projected twilight years.
