I had to google "Can I Dream of Jeannie" and found it but it is only listed as "I dream of Jeannie". I saw the Beverly Hillbillies and had a difficult time understanding because their dialect and couldn't keep up with the conversation. Green Acres is one we have watched. I like Mr. Whipple the best. America has some great old TV shows. We have to get through Gilligans Island first.

I dream of Jeannie is correct. Funny.

I should have used ""

Can "I Dream of Jeannie" be far behind?

Check out "Car 54 Where Are you?" "Andy of Mayberry" "bewitched" "Family Affair" "my three sons" "Petticoat junction" and "get smart."

Green Acres is a good one too! You have not lived until you see all of the old TV shows. Don't miss "Andy Griffith." My daughter-in-law has to watch that one all of the time.

JennyEmma I am looking for all of those and found some DVD's for sale. We saw the movies Get Smart and Bewitched. They were very funny. All of our friends like reality TV and I just don't get it. Nothing entertaining or informative or silly.....I just don't understand what people enjoy about it. And police shows are not entertaining for us. The old shows are the best.

In my many yrs. of cooking...(ok, I do freely ADMIT, that while Gilligans Island was on TV, my bottom was "parked" at the TV back in the day...just KNEW that ONE day, all of their finely-laid plans would work "THIS TIME" ~ NOT):) LOL, but, as an adult, I have lost count of how many times that I have thrown a roast into the crock. I think they are dang-near IMPOSSIBLE to screw-up. I have braised some prior to, I have tossed them completely, 100% frozen at times into the crock too at times. None have ever been a disappointment!!
I toss in whatever condiments that I can grab. Never the same stuff, but, usually get the same results anyhow...tender, juicy pot roast. No muss, no fuss...it's the "good stuff" too!
