Uh-uh, it has the evil Blue Djinn, the same monster who imprisioned Jeannie in her bottle 2,000 years earlier. Tony and Jeannie try several methods to defeat the Blue Djinn. At one point, Tony turns on the television and uses images of violence (from TV newscasts) to frighten Djinn into defeat, but that plan falters when unexpected visitor Roger blabs. After Tony and Jeannie finally defeat Djinn (by luring him into a vacuum cleaner and throwing it to the bottom of the ocean), the two enjoy a peaceful anniversary dinner ... on the same island where they met one year earlier.

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.
