The show is fun to watch at times, but then it becomes way to kiddy and goofy. I can't remember one episode about this show just the one where Jeannie was found on the beach, all the others are forgettable. I think Barbara was very pretty, and I think if it wasn't for her the show would have sunk a lot earlier.
I'm not going to get into the who is better debate because both this show and "Bewitched" have their merits and faults. To start with, the shows stars Barbera Eden who spends almost every episode in that skimpy costume bouncing all over the place as Larry Hangman bounces himself off the walls and furniture and screams his head off - an interesting start for a guy who brought J.R. Ewing to life. Hangman was a much better success doing Dallas, but I still have a hard time believing that slapstick he forced his body through. While not a bad comedy, "Jeannie" basicly gets stuck on parody while "Bewitched" broke ground doing sensitive issues and topics of the Sixties. Bill Daily was Hangman's stooge, the funny sidekick whose life we are never seen much of and then there is the late Hayden Rourke who looks a bit out of place as the straight man when the craziness erupts. Sometimes it seems his line for every episode is the same: "What is going on around here ? Oh, I'm sure you have an explanation." While it may not be Classic TV, it does qualify for Popular TV.
Decent older TV show about an astronaut that finds a bottle with a genie and of course her name happens to be, Jeannie. Lots of fun and mishap in this show. Major Nelson and Major Healy crash on a deserted island ... deserted except for a bottle with a genie in it. He opens and the fun begins. The genie, Jeanie, pops out and she doesn't always like to listen to her master. Barbara Eden played Jeanie and was funny and sexy. Larry Hagman played Major Tony Nelson and Bill Daily was Major Roger Healey. Hayden Rorke was Colonel Dr. Alfred E. Bellows and he had suspicions about Jeanie being a genie. Lots of fun and laughs for everyone.
Man I fancied this woman! I even wrote a letter... I guess she didn't get it. I was only 7 and the show was in re-runs. But I'll tell you Ms Eden as I put in my letter to you.... 'My favourite part was when you got wolf-whistled at whilst going to see Major Nelson at work. And then you wolf whistled back! : )'
In the world of the 50s and 60s silly sitcoms, this is an except, a colorful and exciting show. Barbara Eden is very good at her role, Larry Hagman is better actor here than in "Dallas" or another serieses. The best is Bill Daily's Maj. Healey, but I like the late Hayden Rorke's suspicious Dr. Bellows too. When I saw the series' episodes first time I got a laughing-stock. It is fantastic! The first and second seasons are perfect, the third and fourth are good, but the fifth is a silly, American family sitcom. After Jeannie marries her master, the series goes wrong. But except for those 20 episodes, the whole series is my favorite sitcom of all times!
This is one of the shows that was funny and enjoyable when watching it as a kid. I recently saw it and watched it again and was surprised that I never wanted to miss it. It was humorous at times, and I'm certainly glad that Larry Hagman's acting improved from when he was on I Dream of Jeanie, it's hard to believe he went on to be J. R. Ewing. The show was good for what it was supposed to be I guess, mindless humor. You really didn't have to think too much to find it funny, if you did then it wasn't. I guess that's why I liked it as kid.
I was looking through my collection of DVDs when I got my hands on Season 2 and Season 3 of 'I Dream of Jeannie'. Sitcoms have fascinated me since I started watching Friends, and then moved on to That '70s Show. I didn't really remember watching 'I Dream of Jeannie' ever before, so I thought of giving this one a try too.
It's about an astronaut who finds a Jeannie, and that's just where the adventure begins. There's a whole lot of magic and pretty decent comedy. I was actually bored when I went on with watching the first couple of episodes, but it got better after that. It's a show good enough for the time it was made in. You can't really compare it with what we have these days. But I must say my parents love the show.
Go for it if you have time enough to spare. Nothing really out of the ordinary though.
This show was kinda like a dream- for most men, to have a woman serve them and be at his constant beck and call while wearing a skimpy outfit. Now, back to reality. I Dream of Jeannie is a show that captured the imagination of most people who watched as it premiered in the 60's. It's one of the shows that you can forgive for being so cheesy because they do the cheese right! Major Nelson and his friend, Major Healy were a really big part of why I like this show. Jeannie, she could've been replaced by many beautiful faces, but their parts were very unique and therefore one needed to be very straight-laced while the other a typical goof.
I have 15 years so the first time i saw the show it was because WB were having the recaps when i was \'bout 7 years.
Anyway i love the show, it was funny all the things that Jeannie do just to \"help\" Tony and everything kust got out of the hands and the end Tony was the one who saves her.
I love her mother and who she hate Tony and how, Jeannie\'s mother and her sister make TOny and Jeannie life imposible.
The think i must enjoy it was when Jeannie and Tony married, i love that i know is very cheesy but anyway it was very lovable.
Classic televison at its best! It started with black and white and moved to color. It made the transition to color with class. To properly assess this show you must look at the time period. It is light fun simple comedy. The show is consistent with the three main characters always being there for the full run of the show. The characters have depth and flaws. The relationships mature and develop with time. The plots are simple put have the proper elements in them to keep your interest. The delivery of the lines and facial expressions are outstanding. That is what makes the show a classic, good timely and delivery.
This is one cute classic t.v. sitcom. Sure it was a bit sexist but what show wasn't back in the 60's. It was great and it was still funny. I don't think this could be redone today and last as long as it did. I Dream of Jeannie is a classic. I do wish it would have stayed on longer than it did. It was on before my time, I didn't really get to see it until they reran them on Nick @ Nite, that's when I saw most of the episodes. It's one show that I'll never get tired of.
A show about a female genius falling in love with her "master" and causing trouble. Is a good show and classic. I always have the oportunity to see this show but I don't take care of this show until two years ago. Is a good show and it's from the 60's & 70's.It has a good beggining and a good ending. I want that somebody can renew this show for the next generation and that they will have funny with this show. I see this show in TCM, Retro and Nickelodeon on Nick at Nite. And I also wnat that the shows of this generation will like to the future generations.
I loved this show when I was a kid
Growing up in Miami along with my sibings
It was a great show
Loved Barbara Eden & Larry Hagman
They were a great team and good chemistry
Producers ruined the show though
When both decided to get married
Maybe they should had been married
Towards the end of the series
Wonder what their kids would look like?
I absolutely love this show! It was before my time, but I used to love staying up late past my bed time to watch re-runs as a little kid. I thought that it was so cool that someone could have a genie living in their house, granting their every wish! I always believed that if I wished hard enough, I would get a genie of my very own.
I always loved the fact that Jeannie was always trying to do what she thought was best for Major Nelson, but always seemed to mess everything up.
I was so excited when Jeannie and Major Nelson finally got together and lived happily ever after.
I have been watching episodes of this series on Nick at Night and I have gradually fallen in love with the series. I thought that it would have been dumb since it was created over 40 years ago and the computer effects would have been terrible but that was not the case. In fact some of the tricks down by Jeannie look excellent. Roger Nelson is a very good actor and he is quite funny. Jeannie is just awesome. She is beautiful and funny. She also makes me feel sorry for her sometimes especially when Roger looks her up in her bottle.
I love shows like I Dream of Jeannie because the producers can use there imagination and make almost anything imaginable happen. Every episode is a new adventure. I love it when Jeannie and Major Anthony Nelson get married. I like how Jeannie always calls Tony Master. I thought it was funny when Roger found out that Jeannie was a genie. I loved how Dr. Alfred Bellows almost found out several times that Jeannie was a genie and when he didn't find out he was always curious. I wish this show would have made a lot more episodes, but I still watch the show anyway.
"I Dream of Jeannie" is a 110% better than it's rival show "Bewitched". Jeannie never did remakes on the same plot. Each Jeannie episode had a different plot. "Bewitched" on the other hand did different episodes on the same plot. Jeannie always made me laugh. I loved the episodes when Jeannie's evil sister Jeannie II made appearances on the show. Jeannie & Jeannie II are as different as night and day. Jeannie was more fun than Samantha (Bewitched) because no but Tony and later Roger knew that Jeannie existed for several seasons.
The first season (b&w) were classics in my opinion. I loved the way Jeannie's bottle was decorated on the inside where she slept.
I think that this show was underapreciate in its time because it wasnt as succesful as i believe it should have been. The entire cast gave great performances during the whole show and the plot was so much fun, for me this is one of the greatest show ever, even though it was before my time i watch the re-runs all the time because it never gets boring. The costume used by Barbara Eden was amazing and so it was her body. Lately are rumors about a future movie about the show and although i love it i wouldnt want to watch a bad movie just like it has happened with shows like "Bewitched" or "The dukes of Hazard"
tin tan ton tun no se que poner solo pues que me gusta el programa y que siempre lo veo a las 6:00am por TCM clasic holliwood y ya.
and i´m going to buy the 3 season when? i don´t know how? i don´t know why? because i like it why? i don´t know a because the major Nelson was very handsome a and i loved the major Healy he was so funny maybe he wasn´t hansome or maybe yes but i loved him.
Hmm if you like this show buy now and if you don´t like nimodo buy it now a and the nanny too.

It's funny how time changes your interests. In the 70's this was one of my "must see" shows during the day. Along with Bewitched and F-Troop. Now, I have a hard time sitting through the episodes. Maybe it's because I've seen them all many, many times; maybe it's because I had a cruch on Barbara, and now she's old...; or maybe it's because I can only see Larry as JR now. I don't know, but during it's time, it was good; wholesome entertainment.
This series is a classic gem of television. Created to capitalize on the popularity of 'Bewitched', 'I Dream of Jeannie' put it's own spin on the supernatural meeting modern domesticity. Jeannie is from ancient Babylon where she has been imprisoned in her bottle for 2000 years. She is discovered and rescued by astronaut Anthony 'Tony' Nelson, who she lovingly accepts as her new 'master'. Tony is a career minded bachelor and reluctantly accepts his new housemate. The duo are later joined in their hijinx by Roger Healey, Tony's best friend and fellow astronaut who discovers Jeannie is an actual genie.
A majority of the show's premise is rather simple, Jeannie's nave and eager to please manner cause constant and unexpected interferences to Tony and Roger's work at NASA. Tony wants her to behave more like a traditional modern woman while Roger thinks Tony is crazy for not taking advantage of the opportunities Jeannie's magic offers.
PROS: Larry Hagman is handsome and charming with great physical comedy timing. Barbara Eden plays the nave genie wonderfully, and is able to distinguish characterization when also playing her sister and military nature of Tony's job give the show a classic and ageless feel (only marred by obvious 60's references). You can even track the progress of the relationship by the dcor of Tony's home: very simple and Spartan in Season 1, with more colorful additions to reflect Jeannie every year to being completely remodeled in Season 5.
CONS: The creators were never concerned with continuity, as Jeannie's origin and her mother are changed almost every season. While the show has no real villain, the most consistent antagonist is Dr. Bellows, the NASA psychiatrist. Along with his wife Amanda, they are constantly interfering in Tony's personal life and always seeing things from Jeannie's magic they aren't supposed to. Numerous times they rudely barge into Tony's house with no invitation (or watch though his windows) and the Bellows demands explanations for what Tony does in the privacy of his own home. The Bellows then try to get Tony in trouble with a revolving door of superior officers, but it backfires when Jeannie saves the day with her magic. It is in almost every episode and gets annoyingly repetitive very fast.
The show is episodic so you can watch just about any episode randomly and still follow it easily. Overall, it is a fun show with a simple premise (boy meets girl) with a twist (she's magic).
Lots of fun and mishap in this show. Major Nelson crashes on a deserted island ... deserted except for a bottle with a Jeanie in it. Once he opens it he is in big trouble. Jeanie comes out and she doesn\'t always like to listen to her master (Major Nelson).
Barbara Eden played Jeanie and was fantastically funny. Larry Hagman stared as Major Anthony \"Tony\" Nelson and Bill Daily was
Major Roger Healey. Hayden Rorke was Colonel Dr. Alfred E. Bellows and he had suspicions about Jeanie being a genie. He was always trying to catch her in the act of casting some magic.
For a show in the 60's, I Dream of Jeannie is absolutely amazing. It has evil sisters, magic, action, romance, comedy, and best of all it's in color. The situations that occur are completely crazy. It is somewhat like Bewitched only much more fun to watch. The acting is awesome and the characters are very charismatic. The show has perfectly clean humor like every other show in the sixities, making it great for families and individual viewers. After a few episodes it feels like you're going to visit old firends and that's what makes it so great. It's light, silly, and the hair is fantastic.
I Dream of Jeannie was a classic. It had phenomenal acting, a cute plot, and was hilarious. Unlike so many shows today, I Dream of Jeannie had some of the best acting I've ever seen. Jeannie (Barbara Eden) was incredible. I don't think there was ever once that I didn't think of her as a genie. She portrayed her character perfectly. As well as did Major Anthony "Tony" Nelson (Larry Hagman.) The whole I Dream of Jeannie cast couldn't have done a better job. All the actors and actresses were a perfect match for their roles. So, obviously, I love this show. :P
la mejor del mundo por algo no es una comedia de comedias
es una comedia que tiene un gran diferencia con las demas y eso es en todo los aspectos , primeramente los actores que son de primera y los episodios , las ocurencias y en verdad esta serie es unica a comparacion con echisada , ahi algunas personas que dicen que es una copia de echisada , peor si es que fuera una copia no seria tan fantastica como es no , i dream of jeannie es una serie que nunca va pasar de moda pase loq ue pase
