Bad "I Dream of Jeannie" rip-off
16 May 2001 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

Take Jeannie, give her a sex-change operation, deduct her charm and good nature, and you have this show's "Genie". "You Wish" is but the latest in a series of misguided attempts to remake "I Dream of Jeannie". John Ales's "Genie" is crude, obnoxious, and self-indulgent. Avoid this show at all costs; this supposed sitcom is not funny.
