So I was contacted by Mr. Herbie J. Pilato to review some books he wrote about Elizabeth Montgomery (star of the original Bewitched show of classic TV fame), in honour of the 20th anniversary of her passing coming up this May 18. Any fans of classic TV or of Bewitched specifically are going to want to see this video or pick up these books. Below is my ‘Package-Opening Video’ of the material he sent me (I’m currently reading The Essential Elizabeth Montgomery, and immensely enjoying it). Do you have a favourite TV series from your childhood? What is it? My favourites were always Arthur, Bill Nye the Science Guy, Kratt’s Kreatures and Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? As a teenager, my favourites were CSI: Las Vegas and MacGyver. Now, with the rise of Netflix, my favourites are so many to name that I could literally make a list as long as my arm. Right now, I am enjoying Grimm, Penny Dreadful, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Once Upon a Time, Downton Abbey, and as always, Doctor Who.
So in honour of Ms. Montgomery, watch some Bewitched reruns and check out this video below!
