You probably already know this show and its premise. The third season is a turning point. To a large degree, Jeannie sheds her harem costume for normal clothes (BTW, this season was filmed in color, as was the second. But the coloring here seems to be very brilliant--it really stands out and grabs your attention.) My goodness, that woman is pleasing to the eye! Nevertheless, the fact that Jeannie is clad in regular clothes allows for a whole new type of episode. The change is greater than when Roger found out that Tony has a genie. No longer is she stuck at home, periodically popping in at NASA, but she is out-and-about, meeting and interacting with people and being a major figure in most of the sketches.

Jeannie's evil sister is introduced this season and that opens up a whole new range of problems. Also, in this season, the show seems to have 'arrived,' as it landed a number of guest appearances from well-known celebrities, including Milton Burle, Bob Denver, and the pop duo Boyce and Hart.

If you liked this show when you were growing up, you'll love it again. However, please do not try to find any hidden meaning to life's problems in this show. It was designed to be silly and whacky! IT'S A FANTASY!! Please keep that in mind when you watch OR REVIEW this show!

UPDATE:

Sony should recall this set because there are a few major problems with the set. First of all I thought that I had a bad set and was going to return it.. but then I saw from other reviews that other people was having trouble as well. The episode "Bootsie Nightengale" is very jittery and jumpy throughout the last 15-20 minutes of the show.

I didn't know what to think was the problem, and thought it was possibly my dvd player going bad or faulty discs and I reset the dics over and it happened again on the same spot. I was just going to return it when I looked this up online and seen that this is one of the problems with the set.

There is also a mistake on the cover art also because it sais that episode #13 "My Son The Jeannie" is on disc 3 but if you play disc 3 it is no where to be found because it is on disc 2 instead. How did Sony pull a mistake like that??

This set is still worth buying if you are a true Jeannie fan but fer shame on Sony for releasing a set with so many mistakes! On the other hand all of the other episodes on this set have very good picture quality and are overall great episodes to watch and enjoy.

I just wished the guys at Sony would have put the same thought and effort in to this set as they did "I Dream Of Jeannie" Season one and two box sets.

Ok... now for the plot

"I Dream Of Jeannie" Season 3 has a lot of great episodes and this will be the first appearance made by Jeannie's evil twin sister.

Over forty years later this show is still a charmer! Growing up I mostly watched Bewitched because my parents found it more "family-oriented". Though Jeannie is a clean cut show, I think they were still jittery about the idea of a blonde running around in a skimpy harem costume and living with an astronaut she wasn't married to. But now that I'm all grown up, I find I Dream of Jeannie a little more fun than Bewitched. Jeannie, Maj Nelson, Maj. Healy and poor Dr. Bellows get mixed up in these wacky little capers and manage to untangle themselves out of it later on. All the actors are comic naturals. The show is not afraid to bring in the hip and swinging scene with beautiful girls. I'm sure this was the best way for young models of the day to get introduced onscreen. I Dream of Jeannie is light and optimistic: you have a playful genie and adventurous astronauts. With Bewitched, there are traditions, spells, protocol, moral and family obligations. Both shows have their charming merits, but I Dream of Jeannie is full of fun.

Okay, so the show is totally silly. So what? That's what it's supposed to be. That's whay it's called c-o-m-e-d-y. Not only was the comic timing of Larry Hagman sheer genius at times, but Barbara Eden's portrayal of Jeannie never wavered. She decided the character's nuances on day 1, and that's pretty much how it remained throughout the show.

What makes me laugh, more than anything else, are the expressive faces of Hagman and Rorke, coupled with the way the show's special effects were edited.

Sam the Chimp (just after Jeannie pops into the room): "How's tricks?"

Jeannie (without even taking a breath): "I will SHOW you!"

Too funny.

Enjoy, everyone.

RE: Pic and sound: Sony did a great job mastering the set. However, the opening theme "skips" a note, just as it did on Season 2, leading me to believe they've used the same opening. The music is affected in exactly the same spot! The colour on the set is brilliant, as the good Dr. pointed out, and sound quality is quite good.

Oh, did anyone notice that odd green discolouration at the beginning of Act 3 (?)?

"I Dream of Jeannie" swung into its third season on NBC in the 1967-1968 television year. This would also mark the series high as it returned back into the Top 30 and came in at #26.

This box set contains 26 original episodes filmed in color. The series went from producing a whopping 31 episodes in season 2 to only 26, but by today's standards that's a lot.

Sit back and enjoy TV when it was more innocent and laugh at the great acting/comedic chomps of Barbara Eden and Larry Hagman!

As a child, I loved the entire "I Dream of Jeannie" series, but "Jeannie Goes To Honolulu," season 3, episode 18, will always have a special place in my heart:

As a girl of seven years, my grandpa took my grandmother, mother, and me to Hawaii for vacation where we stayed on the Western end of Waikiki in the fabulous, then only three year old Ilikai Hotel. Imagine my delight when, noticing camera crews, I turned to see Barbara Eden as "Jeannie" wearing a straw hat with a bird of paradise flourish, rise up from behind a flowering bush. It was only take #1, so we got to see it a few more times before it was deemed a wrap. My favorite show was filming right there in the hotel where we were staying! "Jeannie's" motion as she rose from behind the bush would be edited out, we were told, so it would appear as if she'd just suddenly blinked in. I'll never forget standing next to Ms. Eden outside the pool lounge, gazing up anonymously in secret admiration for her, as she spoke with some other adults. In her high heels, she seemed exceedingly tall to my seven-year-old mind, her blonde hair beautifully coiffed, her nose perfectly turned-up, and her eyelashes, long and thick, like canopies over her sparkling blue eyes. To this day, I'm certain she is the most perfectly glamorous creature I've ever seen in person!

The next day at the pool, we watched as producers tied and re-tied bailing wire onto a pool lounge chair. This, we were told, would be used to pull the chair, with actor Larry Hagman as Major Anthony Nelson, into the pool when Eden blinked.

For all the excitement we had on our Hawaiian trip -- luaus, pontoon rides, volcano visits, etc. -- the whole "Jeannie" thing stands out for me above all. It was beautifully capped off on our last day there, by a chance meeting with Hagman in the lobby where he posed with me for a photo and, pleased to hear of my devotion to his show, slapped his stetson on my head as we traveled up together in the elevator. There were many nice things said of Hagman upon his recent passing. Having met him just that once, I can completely understand why everyone so adored this affable, easy-going fellow. If he did nothing else in his life, he once made a seven year old girl ecstatically happy!

Do definitely dream a little dream of "Jeannie goes to Honolulu!"
