The somber fifth-season continuity of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys is briefly interrupted with this comic episode spotlighting those lovable rapscallions Autolycus (Bruce Campbell) and Salmoneus (Robert Trebor). Stealing a magic lantern, the boys conjure up a sexy genie named -- what else? -- Jinni (Hilary Thompson). Alas, the curvaceous bottle imp can't seem to get any of the boys' wishes right -- .and besides, this is an exercise in "Be careful what you wish for." The highlight occurs when Salmoneus, unable to make up his mind what he wants from genie, is split into two halves: "Cry Baby Sal" and "Hyper Sal."
