Audio problem: While Jeannie and Roger are talking in the grocery store, the food cans in Roger's hands hit each other with a hollow thud, revealing that they're both empty. (00:00:40)
I Dream of Jeannie (1965)
1 audio problem
Starring: Barbara Eden, Larry Hagman, Bill Daily, Hayden Rorke
My Master, the Weakling - S3-E5
Other mistake: About 3 minutes into the show, Don Rickles goes around a corner to get some equipment but you can see his left arm at the corner while he's waiting for his spot to come back into the scene.
Trivia: It was absolutely prohibited (until the late 1960s) for Jeannie (Barbara Eden), to show her navel on the air, due to the strict censorship of American TV programming.
The Lady in the Bottle - S1-E1
Question: What language is Jeannie speaking at first and how do they get around the three wish rule?
Answer: Regarding the three wishes, there was never any set-in-stone rule or belief. This appears to originate from "The Ridiculous Wishes" or "The Three Ridiculous Wishes" that is a French literary fairy tale written by Charles Perrault and was published in 1697. It sort of set the standard for genie rules that later appeared in other folk tales and then in movies and TV shows. Like vampire lore, common details can be changed by any author to suit their story.
Answer: She's speaking Persian. And there was never a 3 wish rule. When Tony freed her, he became her master, and she'd do anything for him (i.e. grant his every wish).
