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.

About Me

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!
