Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Who can say whether I Dream of Jeannie set the women's movement back ten years or galvanized it into action? There had never been a woman like Jeannie (the ravishing Barbara Eden) in prime time. She was not a dutiful housewife like June Cleaver and a host of others. Nor was she a sophisticated suburban goddess like Laura Petrie, or even a glamorous witch like Samantha Stevens. No, she was -- to quote military base psychiatrist Dr. Bellows (Hayden Rorke) -- "a classic fantasy," a beautiful, 2,000-year-old genie dressed in a revealing harem outfit (no navels, please, this was 1965!), and dedicated to serving her "master," astronaut Tony Nelson (Larry Hagman). Nelson freed Jeannie from her bottle after being stranded on a deserted island following an aborted space mission, and she now lives with him in his Cocoa Beach, Florida, home. So as to appease the network censors, theirs is, save for a kiss or two, strictly a platonic relationship; although in this first and most magical season, she takes vivacious delight in getting Nelson into various compromising positions. When he orders her to remove the swimming trunks she has just blinked him into in "Whatever Became of Baby Custer?," for example, she lets out a salacious giggle. The befuddled Dr. Bellows mirrors the Betwitched busybody Mrs. Kravitz. He's always catching Tony in outrageous situations, but he's never able to figure out exactly what's behind it all: "There are things going on around here that scream for an explanation," he declares in "Custer." Tony's best friend and fellow astronaut, Roger (Bill Daily), does figure it out, and in "The Richest Astronaut in the Whole Wide World," he even becomes Jeannie's power-crazed master. I Dream of Jeannie might not pass P.C. muster these days, but from the original, jazzy, waltz-time theme song to the dream ensemble, this show has the right stuff. And at a time when television is dominated by reality, a classic fantasy is a welcome relief.
