Storyline

Captain Tony Nelson is an astronaut. While on a mission, he discovered a mysterious bottle.

I dream of Jeannie
6 February 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This television show (1965-1970) was one of the best TV shows to my opinion. The premise of the show based on an astronaut Tony (Larry Hagman)who's space mission was aborted due to malfunction. His capsule lands on a small island beach in South Pacific. He comes in contact of a bottle and rubs it and out came a genie named Jeannie (Barbara Eden), she has been imprisoned in the bottle for 2000 years because a wicked Genie put her there for not marrying her. Tony try let her go but she followed him back to Cocoa Beach Florida and turned his life upside down. Later Roger (Bill Daily) helps Tony from letting Dr Bellows (Hayden Rorke) know and NASA. Being an astronaut is all what Tony dreamed of doing. 1st season was in black and white but later in syndication was in colour. The reason why this show is the best is Comparing it to sitcom today and then (NOT IDOJ and Bewitched, I am not that biased), is easily comparable. They don't make shows like this anymore. The reason this show works is 2 things.

1, CAST: *Barbara Eden easily one of the sexiest women in television. *Larry Hagman, this is one of 2 iconic characters he made, he and Barbara had chemistry and a cute on-screen couple. *Bill Daily, played the lovable and loyal and trusting Tony's best friend. *Hayden Rorke, suspicious and a fun character, the running gag of the show. A great Dr.

2. LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION.

Cocoa Beach Florida, in a time of aerospace era when NASA was the forerunner of technology. The house in 1st 2 season was my favourite, nice colour bachelor's house, in season 3 and on they changed the interior to ugly panelling and then season 5, a new house. By then it wasn't the same.

Closing: the only flaw is the continuity. For a genie locked up for 2000 years in a bottle, how does she know figures of modern era? And for Tony being a smart and wise character, doesn't question this. Nevertheless, I will watch this show 10000 times before Jersey Shore. With having a beautiful sexy genie at Tony's disposal, they kept it clean and pure. Unlike today's shows.
