decent show
8 April 2011 | by katherines267See all my reviews

The show is OK, You can tell that it is a rather low budget show considering its quite obvious that the laughing is a sound track, It sounds the same every time! The problem is, is that the plot has been done so many times before...

So many times people have found a lamp and there's a genie inside, they wish and the wish "doesn't go to plan" Its a decent show, But eventually you are likely to get bored of the same similar plot lines...

I would say that this show is good for 7-11 year olds because of the simple plot lines.

I think that the lack of budget is the reason behind its poor ratings.
