Default Dr. Bellows walking into Tony's house

Has anybody noticed this? He would just walk into the house as if Tony never locked his door. My point is that did anybody else find it creepy that Bellow could just could just come in any time he wanted? What if heaven forbid, Bellows witnessed part of a spell gone wrong with Jeannie?

It's part of the logic of sitcoms. It's like the 3 hour cruise on Gilligan's Island, you don't question why extra clothes were brought along. You don't question the hit on the head amnesia attack, and the cure, another blow to the head. The unlocked door has always had a place in sitcoms, Seinfeld used it, in New York apartment doors automatically lock unless you set them not to lock (and who would do that in New York). The Big Bang Theory, sometimes the door was locked other times not (the obsessive Sheldon won't make sure his door was locked).

back in the 1960s, it was probably more common to leave your door unlocked, and Tony's neighborhood looked like a good, safe neighborhood to me.

Friends too...they pretty much come and go in each others apartments without knocking. (although from the last scene on the final episode, they all had keys anyway )
