30 Days of Honesty: Day 29

 My television is showing the same show on every channel. I really don’t mind watching ____________ (from the 1960′s) and I really love this show because…

Bewitched.  I Love this show I identify with Samantha being an outsider trying to navigate this life she’s chosen to live, with the man she Loves, despite her mother’s disdain.  I can watch reruns of this all day.  I feel like it captures something about suburbia even now, how cookie cutter like is expected to become. Bewitched also took stands against social injustice, during it’s run which is impressive on a show with very few characters of color.  In one episode Samantha and her husband were portrayed in an ad negatively because she was a witch, which in reality addresses topics including race and miscegenation.  Race also came up when one character painted polka dots on herself and her black friend so that they would be treated equally.
