But it's pretty nice until the moment that the James was interpreted by Dick York after the James lost the fan! start to repeat the stories! Elizabeth is wonderful! So this serie it's fantastic just with a detail.

If anyone slates this show, they are truly insane!!

I grew up watching this show along with many others, this was my Favorite, now that I'm in my 50's, I can see the excellent writing and the actors, I loved them all, I hate the 2nd Darrin, he was a jerk character, E. Montgomery, just awesome, Loved Endora, Serena played by Montgomery, Dr. Bombay, Paul lynde was so funny, just great, an awesome show, I also loved I dream of Jeannie as a kid, but it's not quite as watchable as an Adult now.

The show does not age well, from the beginning a person in our era cannot see why her husband doesn't like magic making him seem annoying and a jerk for not appreciating his wife when she has superpowers.

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
