The debut of Jeannie's sister
30 October 2016 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"Jeannie or the Tiger" was only the second episode of the third season, but marked the very first appearance of Jeannie's sexy brunette sister, inexplicably dubbed Jeannie II and also played by Barbara Eden, another nod to BEWITCHED, which had allowed Elizabeth Montgomery to double as Samantha's wild cousin Serena. Not having seen her sister in 2000 years, Jeannie blinks the two together, her sister a wildcat bored with her 80 year old, limousine loving master, luring Jeannie into her bottle so she can seal the cork and take her place. She meets Roger first, who gets blinked to the Arctic after he learns of the real Jeannie's imprisonment, while Tony gets quite a shock when he returns home to a suddenly aroused genie. Dinner and dancing till dawn do not meet with his approval, perplexed at the changes in his formerly docile genie. Dr. Bellows can't believe his eyes when Tony changes costumes at the drop of a hat, and the climactic show down gets out of hand, but overall one of the brighter entries.
