A Solid Funny Show!
16 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To tell you the truth, I was never a fan of "I Dream of Jeannie" but I did see the reruns as a child when they showed reruns on local stations. I love Barbara Eden as Jeannie and Larry Hagman as her master. Although now several years later, I felt the show degrades Jeannie in the power of a man. I don't think it was ever meant to be sexist since it was over forty years ago. Still, the marvelous Sidney Sheldon did a fantastic job in writing the series which only lasted five years maybe it was because of the women's liberation movement. Regardless, I did enjoy the on screen chemistry between Hagman and Eden. Nobody could ever fill Eden's shoes as Jeannie. While there is production for an updated movie version, nobody could fill Jeannie's shoes like Barbara Eden.
