Did you know that the classic sitcom Bewitched
's biggest feat of magic was turning its entire audience
into practitioners of modern witchcraft? It all happens in episode two (1964), with a clever set-up and a breaking of the fourth wall. We begin with the witchy mother Endora deciding to get a look at her new son-in-law without him seeing her:
The son-in-law senses an invisible presence and asks, "Who's here in this room with us?":
In the final scene of episode two, Endora breaks the fourth wall and addresses the audience directly. Indeed, we've been invisibly eavesdropping on the household along with Endora, and it's fitting that she looks right at us -- her fellow witches, floating in the air alongside her at roof-level.
And may we add, what better place to break the fourth wall than on the roof!
