A delightful comedy series from the 60s. My 10 year old daughter thinks Jeannie is beautiful & sweet. Her innocence and magical tricks create fun/ silly/ bizzare situations/ dilemmas that Major Nelson has to contend with & try explain(!) to his Superiors. (= Go off to bed with a smile!

I guess CountChocula below likes this brain-dead TV show so much because it's aimed at (*Count's quote*) "a child's point of view". And that's exactly what the Count is - A child (who likes to babble utter nonsense about this childishly nonsensical TV show).

An exemplar of mid 60's sit-com programming, 'I Dream of Jeanie' was always a show aimed as much to the tykes as to the grown-ups. Cynical machinations over the woman in the halter top and the man she calls 'master' more or less evaporate with the watching of any single episode. Only Eden's cleavage betrays anything other than wholesome. The show keeps well within a child's point of view: bright, broadly comic and generally asexual. The relationships of the adults in the show are as a child might imagine them. Reality this ain't. Guest stars this season include Don Rickles, Milton Berle, Bob Denver, Paul Lynde and a rare appearance by Boyce and Hart: the songwriting duo who wrote (and played on) a number of hit records by The Monkees. Even Don Ho shows up, in surreal fashion, to perform a number in the season's de rigueur Hawaiian episode. A most groovy time capsule of 1967: the year this season aired. Cast performances are broad, as this is a slapstick show, but strong and show a clear affection for the silent comics. Some of the sociological aspects of the show do date somewhat (it's a product of the mid-60's after all) but for unabashed silliness and absurdity it gets high marks from me.

(*Jeannie quote*) - "Oh, master, your wish is my command!"

TV's I Dream Of Jeannie was pretty much just a simple-minded one-note-joke that got real stale, real fast.

With the Jeannie character being just a glorified boy-toy Barbie Doll, I guess that she was created to somehow fulfil the wish of everyman's secret sexual fantasy.

I found this show to be shallow, petty, painfully predictable and completely unfunny. Its desperate attempts to generate some much-needed laughs were so downright stupid that it was literally brain-dead.

I thought that astronaut, Tony Nelson, was a total square who used Jeannie like a doormat. If only Jeannie would've finally wised-up and realized that she had been rescued from her bottle by the biggest bore in the entire world, bar none.

The rapport that took place between Jeannie and Tony was as trite and contrived as you could possibly imagine. I totally hated the annoying way that Jeannie and Tony volleyed their ridiculous fits of jealousy back and forth between each other.

All-in-all - This mid-1960s Sit-Com was dumb to the 10th power.
