Trivia

Loosely based on a myth of a genie of the lamp from the classic novel A Thousand and One Arabian Nights about a young boy Aladdin and a genie of the magic lamp. Much like Aladdin, Adil is also a teenager, only now his masters are a modern Western family. See more »

Crazy Credits

Adil conjures up the names of the cast members but can't do it quite right: Katie Sheridan's name deflates and flies around, Vicky Longley's name comes out mixed up and has to be kicked into place, Jordan Metcalf's name is too heavy and falls on Adil's foot & Adam Morris's melts on his head.

Whats cheesier? adils face or the show altogether
7 May 2007 | by tyranid_slayerSee all my reviews

My sister usually watches shows on either Disney channel or nickelodeon. The shows on Disney are horrendous and the shows on nick are more intelligent. Until this came along.

Genie in the house. It is an atrocity. I can't make out whether the show is British or very bad American. The show focuses on some very badly acted genie named adil his face is so orange he might as well have been made in a wotsit crisp factory. Basically it just follows that plot and the wishes the girls make. Which are quite bad actually. If anyone had a genie they would wish to make the world bow to their feet or have mind control or something. But the girls are the only good thing about this show their acting is slightly passable. And the brunette is quite attractive.

So all in all don't watch it unless you like either of the girls.
