As we mentioned in our story about the second-season DVD sets of Bewitched, there are two versions coming out on Oct. 25: the original black-and-white broadcast episodes, and a colorized version which will in all likelihood get the colors wrong again, as they did for Season 1 (as an example, there were wrong dress colors on Samantha as compared to color publicity photos and TV Guide covers). We highly recommend the original version, but that's just our opinion of course...it's good that Sony's giving people a choice.

Sony has not provided the box art for these yet through the normal press channels, but thanks to a friend of mine on the retail side of things I was able to obtain the above cover shots for you. On the other hand, Sony has provided some descriptions of the release(s):
    In every way, Samantha and Darrin Stephens are a perfectly normal, all-American couple, except for one small detail...Samantha's a witch! And although she promised her husband on their wedding night never to use her powers, Samantha can't seem to resist performing a quick trick or two to get out of a jam. Further complicating matters is Samantha's mother, Endora, who is appalled that her daughter married a mere "mortal" and does her spell-assisted best to break them apart!

    There's magic in the heir when Samantha and Darrin welcome their new baby, Tabitha, in the second sensational season of BEWITCHED. Starring Elizabeth Montgomery, Dick York and Agnes Moorehead, these 38 classic episodes also include a host of famous guest stars including Charlie Ruggles (Bringing Up Baby), Robert Strauss (Stalag 17) and Oscar-winner Richard Dreyfuss (Best Actor, The Goodbye Girl, 1977). Highlighted by the hilarious first appearance of Paul Lynde as Samantha's Uncle Arthur and Alice Pearce's final performance as hysterical neighbor Gladys Kravitz, BEWITCHED: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON is an enchanting comedy collection no witch can twitch her nose at.

Don't forget that these releases, which are on 5 DVDs running 967 minutes, have an SRP of $39.95. However, you can pre-order from Amazon.com either the original Black-and-White edition or the colorized version of Bewitched - The Complete 2nd Season for just $27.97 discounted price. Extras will include another edition of the "Magic and Mishaps" blooper reels, and a Bewitched trivia game. Stay tuned for any further developments!
