|Is there anyone who prefers Dick Sargent? .|
Yes but I can see I am in the minority. I do agree that York's Darrin has chemistry with Elizabeth but I still can't help liking Sarrgent's Darrin more.
|Well, I always Dick York was the better of the two. But it might be a little unfair to Sargent, who was a decent character actor, because by the time he joined the cast, the show was already in decline. They had already started recycling plot lines even when York was still there. If you compare the early episodes to the later ones, you can tell that Elizabeth Montgomery is getting bored.|
That's true. Still all the episodes are watchable and enjoyable but as the show went on some of the plot lines etc were repeated in a different way. Both Sargent and York were good in different ways though I'm one of the few who prefer Sargent.
Dick York. I really can't say I liked Sargent at all. York would say his lines with some feeling. Sargent looked like he was reading off of his hand.
"Sam....no uh.....witch craft.....okay?"
|I hate to say I am jumping on the bandwagon, but i like York better. I think he showed a more human Darren.|
Either/or... I think I remembered more Sargent episodes from my childhood, so maybe I prefer his portrayal a bit better. But, honestly, neither of them seemed to make the role so "his" that the other one seemed wrong playing the part.
