Grew Up Watching, and Still Love It!

I grew up watching Jeannie on MeTV, and to this day it's still one of my favorite shows. I love going back and re-watching episodes, and they always make me laugh. As far as I can remember, it's clean, and free from any language or sexual content. There may be a few innuendos but they are not explicit.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (5 ):

The show's plotlines surrounding Jeannie's efforts to please her master and her attempts to keep him away from other women reflect some of the female gender roles and stereotypes of the time. Feminine sex appeal (characterized by Jeannie's curve-revealing harem outfit) and a woman's desire to get married are also highlighted throughout the series' five-year run.

Some of its messages are definitely dated, and unlike shows that aired simultaneously, including Bewitched and Get Smart, it fails to address some of the social transitions of the time. But its likable characters, fantasy-oriented storylines, and running gags still make it a classic favorite.
