The television show Bewitched exists on my pop peripheral, so I had forgotten the central premise of the Samantha character: she's not really a witch at all. She's a deity who can stop time and finger-snap homes and cars into existence, and she will presumably live forever. If she only had a brain, she could enslave the entire world.

Of course it makes sense that an immortal spirit would want to bottle itself into perfect womanhood, so Nicole Kidman is a good choice to play the central role. How is it possible that this actress seems to get better looking with each passing year, in every role she plays? I say she is probably as good as it gets, female-wise; just staring at her longitudes and latitudes for any period of time is enough to make the heart-cockles swell with species-pride.
