    My list of the worst episodes:

    1 The Snooperstar Susan Olsen hated this episode for good reason. It was embarrassing.

    2 Kelly's Kids An attempt to make the first multi racial family spinoff but it failed.

    3 The Hairbrained Scheme Robert Reed boycotted this episode. It was silly and dated.

    4 Couain Oliver An attempt to save the show.

    Out of all of them, i think Kelly's Kid's was the worst because it hardly showed the Brady family.

    I never liked the episode in the Grand Canyon. Or the episode where one of the girls need glasses (Jan was it?)

    I remember when the Kelly's Kids episode aired in prime time back in the original run. I felt like I was cheated because there was very little Brady time in the show. And we had to wait a whole week before we would get Brady characters again.

    I agree with your entries and I never did love Oliver, I thought he really wasn't nearly as adorable as young Cindy which is probably the reason they brought some fresh blood in. But nevertheless, one of the other dumb episodes I thought was "Mikes Horror-scope" ugh that Be Be Fellini or whatever her name is made me so mad when I was a kid lol. I wanted to smack her when she called Carol "the little woman" as Carol was my most favorite TV mom! I thought that episode was weird altogether.

    Basically the last ten or so episodes, with Cousin Oliver. The only one of the Oliver ones I kind of like is Two Petes in a Pod.
    I also don't like:
    Power of the Press
    Top Secret
    The Cincinatti Kids
    Tell it Like It is
    Out of This World
    and the one with the pool table. It's also funny how in the last few episodes there is kind of a echo, you can especially tell in the pool table one when Bobby is out in the garage.

    Worst Episode: Kelly's Kids...a blatant and obvious attempt at a spin-off. I don't think it ever got off the ground. Also, season 4 had an episode where Mike's Dad and Carol's grandmother hooked up. That was really bad too.

    The fifth season had the most horrible episodes cause the actors who played the Brady Kids outgrew their roles and it showed.

    I would like to touch on what you wrote about the episode called the "Snooperstar". Towards the end of this episode, Cindy gets her bubble burst. I would say that there are a lot of shows in which characters who were unrealistically optimistic get their bubbles burst in a humorous way. One that comes to mind is the third-season episode of "Gimme a Break!" called "Samantha's Protest". In my opinion, Katie truly got what she deserved for being a total snot during that episode! Earlier in the evening, I posted a comment on the "Gimme a Break!" page dealing with that episode. It is called "The model of decency". I would be very interested in what you think of it. Just in case you have never seen the episode before, it is uploaded onto You Tube. I would be very interested in what you think of the episode and how you think it compares to the "Snooperstar".
