Embracing Your Inconsistencies: I Dream of Jeannie (TV Showcase #50)

Well, I made it. I had another show in mind for number fifty, but it was really long and it’s hard to find episodes, so this is what I’ve got instead. It’s hard to believe that I’ve watched fifty complete series’, but here we are. And I’m not planning to stop either.

So I got a little excited when the game show was announced to be coming to TV. Until, that is, I realised what a horrible idea that was. And still is. Let me explain why this show is not only terrible, but also rigged. And no, this isn’t a TV Showcase. A show like this isn’t really worth one.
