Hands down, Jeannie or the Tiger has to be my favorite episode of I Dream of Jeannie. Nothing better than watching Jeannie get corked up by her wicked dark haired sister. Tony's reactions to Jeannie (II) in disguise as Jeannie are hysterical!
Hi Patterson. I'm Jason Broadway, and like yourself, I'm an I Dream of Jeannie fan too. My favorite episodes are The Lady in the Bottle, Guess What Happened on the Way to the Moon, Happy Anniversary, One of our Bottles is Missing, Jeannie and the Curious Kid, The Wedding, Jeannie or the Tiger, My Master the Pirate, and too many more to list. Did you get to meet Barbara Eden and Larry Hagman at the play Love Letters? I met them three months ago, and what a thrill that was. I hope I get to meet them again soon. Well take care Patterson, and hope to hear from you soon. My e-mail address is TampaJason@hotmail.com. Jason.
So JasonBroadway, why don't you tell us more about your meeting with them then? As for favorite episodes I can't say I have one, way too many to count, what if you ask us to list the top 5 or 10 episodes, that might be easier
Hi Domi. You asked me to tell about my time meeting Barbara Eden and Larry Hagman? Okay here it is. Six months ago I went to Ruth Eckerd Hall and saw the play Love Letters that Barbara and Larry were in. The play was good, but I was too excited about meeting two of my favorite sixties tv stars-Barbara Eden and Larry Hagman. After play we had a chance to ask questions or make comments. I made a comment, and I told Barbara I loved her, that I grew up watching I Dream of Jeannie since I was a around 1973, and I still watch it on Tv Land. I pretty much told Larry Hagman the same thing, and I also told him that I never missed an episode of Dallas, and he told me this" You have good taste young man". I also met Joe Rorke, the nephew of Hayden Rorke. He was also nice too. I also sat next to one of my e-mail friends Daryl James, and he paints the bottles as a hobby, and he does good work. I along with the other VIP ticket holders got to have pictures taken with Barbara and Larry and it was a thrill. I told Barbara once again that meeting them was a dream come true for me, and she thanked me for coming to the show. Hopefully I'll get to meet them again one of these days. Well I hope you enjoyed reading my story on how I got to meet Barbara Eden and Larry Hagman. I think that's a great idea you said about asking the members their top 5 or 10 favorite Jeannie episodes. Well here are mine, and let me know what yours are too. 1. The Lady in the Bottle. 2. Happy Anniversary. 3. One of our Bottles is Missing. 4. How do you beat a Superman. 4. Jeannie or the Tiger. 5. Jeannie and the Curious Kid. 6. Guess What Happened on The Way to the Moon. 7. My Master the Rich Tycoon. 8. My Master The Author. 9. The one episode with Don HO which I can't think of now. and 10. The Wedding. Of course there are others I like, but those are my favorites. Well take care and contact me back on how you liked reading my story about meeting Barbara and Larry. Jason.
I wish I remember how Jeannie or the Tiger goes! I saw it once when it came on the Screen Gems Network- a long time ago. I really have no memory of that episode. A pity because I've heard it's extremely funny. Oh well...guess I'll have to wait for the third season to come out on DVD. Which is only 2 months away!
I guess I like the ep about the book "The Care and Feeding of Genies." I don't recall the name of the ep, but I love the ending when Tony tells Jeannie, "When you care about someone, you take the good with the bad, and you be thankful for what you've got. I forgot to be thankful, and I'm sorry." I tell myself that quote all the time when I'm upset with somone I care about. I thought that was one of the most genuine moments in the show.
Two of my favorite episodes were "Jeannie goes to Honolulu" and "Battle of Waikiki." Being born and raised in Hawaii makes me a little biased. The part where Jeannie appears at Waikiki Beach while Tony is sunbathing with the Admiral's daughter was hilarious. Also Dr. Bellow's funky beach outfit will attract more stares today than Jeannie's magic. Most of all Barbara Eden looked so hot in her swimsuit!! She was in Hawaii a couple of years earlier while filming "Ride the Wild Surf." She looked absolutely beautiful in that movie too.
