The only thing I want to mention is: If you need to watch shows that reach some sort of conclusion, you'll be pretty sad in 5 seasons. Knowing it doesn't end anyway, I would suggest skipping season 5 entirely. It's quite sub par. [spoiler]All you need to know before watching the movies is Jeannie and Tony get married and her existence is revealed to the other characters (but not her powers)[/spoiler] The second TV movie in 1991 does try to end the series in a sane way. (I Dream of Jeannie... Fifteen Years Later (1985); I Still Dream of Jeannie (1991)

How do you make a fair assessment for a TV show that premiered more than half a century ago? From todays point of view you could easily say it´s naive, the scripts are repetitive and you could also say the show is antagonistic to women. You would be right on all this. But those were the times and those were the shows. You have to accept this and then enjoy one of TVs all time classics

**** Classic escape entertainment.**** For an escape to classic light hearted entertainment, I Dream of Jeannie, is the way to go. Great comedy series for the whole family. [spoiler] Good way to end... Finally they get married. They picked a good way to end this show on a high not instead of dragging out another season [/spoiler] My Score: 7/10.

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 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 (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

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 don’t feel like watching it all over again…

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!
