Do you think the show is sexist?
I used to love I Dream of Jeannie when I was a kid and the show recently started airing again. I was very happy to see it back on the air because I do think it's a great show and a lot of fun. But after watching a couple episodes (and some other old shows like the Jetsons) I realised that Jeannie, as much as we all love her, is a stereotype of the man's ideal woman (from the man's point of view). She's blonde, extremely ditzy, beautiful, she calls him "master" and all she wants to do is serve him (I understand that she's a genie and he is actually her master in this show but the name and that bind to him adds to her appeal). She's even willing to give up her powers just to marry him and be a housewife. I really do love the show but boy was I offended when I worked out this connection!
