  • Endora strikes again, Darren makes a fool out of himself as usual

    Another episode featuring Endora, mad at Darren, and making him look like an idiot in front of clients. In this instance, she casts a spell to make all of Darren's dialogue come out as a cliche. That being too boring for Endora, later on, she a spell so that Darren's actions become cliches. This causes Darren's words, for example, Darren says to his client ok lets play ball, and then the client is somehow transformed into wearing a costume which is a baseball uniform, and along with him, so is Darren. Quite boring, the only thing that I liked about it was Andorra's spell casting which is always very crisp and professional, and I did like the acting when Larry Tate, Darren and the business clients we're frozen so that the witches could settle everything in a favorable way. One of the funniest Goofs is in the elevator. There's an elevator operator who wishes Darren a nice day. Just then, Pandora cast a spell. Instead of freezing, the elevator operator Wild a little bit back and forth and appears to blink instead of being frozen. Normally, the actors do such a great job as the witches straighten everything out in the screenplay but it was funny to see your booth.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Samantha is able to freeze Larry, the client and Darrin when the situation is getting out of control and all three men are suddenly wearing baseball uniforms. This has caused fans to wonder why Sam didn't do this more often to solve problems. One explanation may be that this particular event happened within the Stephenses' house, whereas many of the other chaotic situations on the show take place in public with too many other mortals around.
