I Dream Of Jeannie
Barbara Eden ■ Larry Hagman
Captain Tony Nelson is an astronaut. While on a mission, he discovered a mysterious bottle. Opening it, he released Jeannie (a Genie) who was so overjoyed at her release she promised to serve Captain Nelson. Nelson is unsure what to make of Jeannie, especially given that his work is highly secret and his superiors tend to keep a close eye on him.
I may have been born 20 years too late but I Dream Of Jeannie is still one of my favorite shows. Blessings on reruns and DVDs!
This show is a wonderful and lighthearted blast from the past. Jeannie is sweet and funny and you really don't want make her mad.
I watched quite a few episodes of I Dream Of Jeannie back when it was still on Hulu, reminded me why I liked it so much. It was perfect to wind down with an episode or two at night. This world has so many problems and terrible stories that it was a welcome respite watching a show where the worst problem was how to get a lion out of a living room and how to hide a jealous genie.
Well, we got on a TV show on DVD kick and I just couldn't resist ordering in season one at the library. Fun and funny, I still love this show and count it as an
This show is fun for the whole family. There is nothing more objectionable than slapstick violence and some innocent 60's innuendo. This is a show I would have enjoyed as a kid and definitely do as an adult.
Great show and great fun!

[after Jeannie kisses him]
Anthony 'Tony' Nelson: I must have gone further into orbit than I thought.
Jeannie: Thou hast set me free. That means that I am free to please thee. And I am going to please thee very much.
Anthony 'Tony' Nelson: Say, has the weather changed much in the last two thousand years?
Jeannie: Oh, weather is weather. In ancient Persia we had an old saying: "Everyone talks about the weather, but no one does anything about it."
Anthony 'Tony' Nelson: You're kidding.
Jeannie: I jest you not, Master.
Anthony 'Tony' Nelson: Where am I? Where am I? What's that?
Jeannie: Baktu malali. An ancient Persian remedy
Anthony 'Tony' Nelson: Oh, boy. What is it?
Jeannie: Hot chicken soup.
Anthony 'Tony' Nelson: A million bottles on the beach, and I had to pick hers.
[Dozing in an armchair being levitated by Jeannie, unaware that Dr Bellows has just walked in]
Anthony 'Tony' Nelson: This is so comfortable. Say, there's lots of room up here, why don't you come and join me?
Col. Alfred E. Bellows, MD: I would but I'd need a ladder!
