My mother thought this was a stupid show when I was little. I loved this show, and now I have a chance to watch this show again, right here on I think it's wonderful. This show is about a woman with three girls, and a man with three boys, come together and get married, and the kids goes through all sorts of changes trying to get used to one another and become a family. A wonderful show to watch for anyone!
LOVE TBB!!! They don't make TV like this anymore. Now, it all "reality Back in the 70s, television played a more important role in our daily lives because there were fewer things in competition with in. No internet, No PCs. No video games. No cable tv. America got its entertainment from regular network television. And the Brady Bunch was an important part of the ABC prime time lineup in the early 70s. One little known fact is that Robert Reid resented doing the was trained in the classics and thought the show type cast him. He also wanted the show to be more realistic and often fought with Creator/Producer, Sherwood Schwartz over scripts and story lines. In fact, Reed boycotted the show's last episode ("The Hair Brained Scheme") over a dispute with Schwartz. No one knew at the time that the show was to be cancelled before its 6th season. Had it been renewed by ABC, Reid would have been replaced or written out of the show! In summary, I LOVE this show and could watch it 24/7/
I was barely 4 y/o when the series ended but still vaguely remember watching it in prime time as it was also one of my mother's favorite shows. Not long after the show went into syndication where I was able to watch it on our first little "color" tv (it was more like a green tint lol) after school each day. I remember fondly as one reader mentioned in another post that The Brady Bunch and my Fisher Price Little People are probably the most inherent childhood memories and attachments. Up there with Mom Mom's pot roast and Na Na's homemade chicken soup. So though to some this is just a kitschy little piece of Americana TV that certainly my kids generation (all young adults now) just may not quite get, I do get it. Right down to the funky horror show of fashion that was the '70s to the funky avocado greens and muted oranges on all of our kitchen and living room walls. It is innocent, family value fun. One of my biggest disappointments will always be how in real life Rob Reed refused to do the very last episode in which Greg graduates HS. In the end Carol throws a blurb out about how "its a shame that your father had to miss it due to traveling for business". Whenever I see that episode and hear that line I think to myself how for 5 seasons we got to know Mike Brady as a phenomenal dad who would have NEVER have missed one of his children's big milestones as HS graduation. That was a bummer way to end such an amazing series. I still watch the Brady Bunch online and am always searching for syndication on TV networks. I am one Gen X'er who is still crazy about The Bradys!
Lots of fun has been poked at the Brady's for their "plastic" lifestyle and values. However, these are the kind of shows that should be shown. This show was awash with values and principles. So much has changed since then. But this is how a family should be. How kids were and should be. These kids were nice, polite and courteous. These are things that need to be reinfornced more today. We should be safe from ourselves but we are not. The previous generation and mine screwed up. Now kids kill kids. Instead of helping old ladies they rob and beat them. This is not white society or culture. Sorry but it it not. Integrating minorities is a good thing but do so by elevating them to our standards not lowering ours so they can compete. We've lowered the professional and educational standards to the point that there are no more highly educated professionals in many vocations. They are trained to do a certain job only. Vocational training without the general education of the past. No everyone will never be equal. You cannot pass legislation and make it so. There is no such thing as functional equality. There is only equality under the law as should be. Give all the same opportunity. But don't give the best students a curriculum designed for qualifying less intellectual individuals.
I love this show! My family and I used to watch it when I was a little girl. I can't believe this show ended as soon as it did. I really thought it should have gone on for a few more years. My favorite characters were Alice (the maid), Marcia (the older sister), and Cindy (the youngest). But then, who didn't love Cindy? She was so cute with her impaired speech and her curly blonde hair. Peter was my favorite brother character. He was so funny! Jan wasn't too bad, but she complained too much. She always got mad because she thought everyone liked Marcia better. Mike and Carol (the parents) were alright, but their idea of punishing the kids was a little...different. The same lectures repeated over and over again got pretty old. Greg and Bobby (the older and younger brother, respectively) were okay too.
The Brady Bunch is decent classic show with a bunch of Familys around being a Comedian. I use to watch this show not on TV land though, but something eles. It came on all the time but they changed it. So I have to find it because I think it's one of these best Classic Comedy and Family shows you'll actually love. I could really understand what they are saying and the durations to it. This is a very decent show to watch. I am really impressive in this show. In the old years, they have made lot's of comedy and good shows. You'll lve them. Even the ones where their in Black and white.
Like so many have said before 6 kids... parents that get along.... all the time......... and a housekeeper, who dates the local butcher... and all by the same genius who brought us Gilligan's Island, another classic from televisions history. Have purchased several books on this show over the years and looking forward to Maureen McCormick's upcoming one..(October 14th) so a few weeks to go yet..... anyway back to the show, had a standing date to watch this show whenever I was home, and like a lot of guys and I am certain a few girls as well had a major crush on Maureen (Marcia,Marcia, Marcia) McCormick and think that some of my favorite episodes were colored by that fact, the subject was noses, the crush on the dentist one, the first one that they sang on screen in.. and so on.. greatly enjoyed the grand canyon arc one as well...... including seeing Jay Silverheels.. speaking without using the words Me-Um or Ugh.. common early tv writers ideas of native american speaking abilities, and yes I am Cherokee and Choctaw
So many funny memories and good TV movies. My fave one is when they all go to Hawaii because each child gets to experience what bad luck is light. A spin-off for the show would be good. By the way, do not blame Robbie Wrist for the cancellation it was not his fault.
A widower named Michael Paul Brady with 3 sons, Greg, Peter, and Bobby, marries a widow named Carol Ann Tyler Martin, with 3 daughters, Marcia, Jan, and Cindy. Both families move in together, along with Mike's housekeeper, Alice Nelson. So, the adventures of everyday lives begin. Mike is an architect and Carol is a housewife and freelance writer. They own a 4 bedroom, 3-4 bathroom, 1 attic house. The house is 4 stories, with the top being the attic, and a mention cellar in Peter's vase breaking episode as the very bottom. Great house, wish I lived in it. The best show on the face of the Earth.
I can remember a lot of things from this show, because i grew up watching it. Whenever, there was a marathon of it, my grandma would tape it and we would watch it together. There is no way you can choose a favorite character because they were all fantastic. I really love the theme song because it's really fun to sing along. I wish it wasn't canceled. I loved how the show had lots of funny episodes, and that it had funny situations. I don't think that anyone should pick and choose which episode is their favorite one, because this show as a whole was perfect, and great.
The best show i have ever seen in my life! DVD\'s are for sale, all 5 season\'s. This is such a great show i love it love it love it!The best show i have ever seen in my life! DVD\'s are for sale, all 5 season\'s. This is such a great show i love it love it love it!The best show i have ever seen in my life! DVD\'s are for sale, all 5 season\'s. This is such a great show i love it love it love it!
I can't believe this show never made it into the Top 30! That makes me very sad, however this show has grown far more popular with the test of time and has become a true classic. Everyone could relate to the characters and although the family wasn't very realistic, it still provided fun-filled episodes and brought a smile to your face!
The Brady Bunch is one of the best comedy shows to ever hit the small screen. The producers of the show hit a jackpot with this show. slapstick humor and unsuspecting punchlines make this show really really funny. Each episode promises laughs and light hearted good clean fun. sitcoms today don't get close to the brady bunch, this is a real classic. this is a kind of show that a whole family can watch, you get a really good laugh, it's so entertaining, you don't feel like you wasted your time after you've seen it. this show is a gem that can never be recreated ever again.
In this series, Michael Paul Brady marries Carol Ann Tyler Martin and they combine their families. Mike had three sons from a previous marriage and Carol had three daughters also from a previous marriage. Mike's previous wife had died and the fate of Carol's previous husband was never explained. However, creator Sherwood Schwartz, originally intended Carol to have been divorced, but ABC balked at that idea. So thus we have two parents (Mike and Carol),six kids (Greg, Marcia, Peter, Jan, Bobby & Cindy), one housekeeper (Alice), and the family dog (Tiger), all living under one roof. Thus setting the scene for one of the most popular family sitcoms of all-time.
The first season revolved mainly around the family adjusting to living together. The following seasons then revolved mainly around the six kids growing up and going through puberty and childhood adolescents.
In 1989, most of the cast returned to their roles on an episode of the short lived, series, Day by Day. The episode was called A Very Brady Episode. Interesting enough, Christopher Daniel Barnes starred in the series and would later portray Greg in the 1995 feature film, The Brady Bunch Movie and a year later in A Very Brady Sequel.
Spin-offs: The Brady Kids, The Brady Bunch Hour, The Brady Brides and The Bradys
6 kids and 3 parents....A Great show and idea! Peter,Greg,Bobby,Jan,Marsha,cindy all living together in one house and with 3 parents! Personally if you want my opinion on my favorite boy character it would have to be peter,favorite girl character is cindy! Peter is adorable,hot,cute,funny! Cindy is cute,sweet,adorable,funny. All of the kids have alot of charcter in themselves! But i think that cindy and peter stand out the most! It is the funniest show from the 70's that ive ever seen! and the fashion is very groovy!!!!!!!! This show also has some very good morals! and is a great teen show!
I love this show. It 's so funny that it 's a show from like the 60 's and 70 's and people today still watch it that really amazes me. But I dont wonder why they do. It 's a classic. It 's fun and more or less addicting. I mean I just cant stop watching this show. But it fun to watch 6 kids put in a house to live toghter becasue their parents got married and Alice in the middle of all of it. But I honestly like seeing them now. It 's so funny cause their all old well older and I 'll see some of them in a magiazine or something when I 'm watching the Brady Bunch and it 's like whoa....! But it 's cool to. All I have to say is it would have been cool to be a brady!
The Brady Bruch featured a blinded family, A guy (Mike) who has 3 boys, and a woman (Carol) who has 3 beautiful Daughters, get married and live together along with the house keeper Alice.
This was a great show, it has humor, and great family moments, It was the type of show that you could watch with your family, the boys would always get into trouble,and sometimes get the girls invloved, of course the girls had their share of problems too.
My two favorite characters where Alice and Cindy, Alice because she was funny and Cindy, because I had a crush on her and she was so cute.
This show was an old show that was on before I was born, But I watch it on Nick at Nite from time to time.
Man, how could you not love this show! This has got to be one of the best and classic shows of all time. This is a really cute show with all these kids that were going through the same stuff as just about anyone was going through those days (well, maybe except becoming a teen sensation and getting your own variety show). It could really relate to you. But I think what I liked a lot about this show is that it's just wholesome quality family television! There wasn't any profanity, sexual content, nothing! It was just a normal family. It might have been a little cheesy, but you could seriously learn something from the Bradys! The Bradys were the family everyone wanted to be in and they certainly were put in a great place in pop culture.
I like this show. This show is about a mother named Carol who has 3 lovely girls named Marcia, Jan & Cindy, A man named Mike Brady who has 3 sons Greg, Peter & Bob. They also has a maid named Alice. man I love this show it the best sictoms of the 70's. Nick at nite should have never taken this show & replaced it with something really lame like Roseanne, The Cobsy Show. Tvland should put this in a better timeslot & should replaced Good Times & What Happening. I could gave this show a 10.0.
This is one of my all-time favorites of all time! The Brady Bunch was one of my first favorite shows, i saw it first in reruns when i was about 3, and have loved it ever since. I love all the characters, all the adventures, and all the details and contradictions.Not to mention those groovy flower power shirts and 70's lingo. Every day afer school, i would hurry home to see it at 3:35 on TBS. I have too many favorite lines and scenes to add in this short reveiw. But Cindy is my favorite Brady kid and Alice is a favorite, too.
Sam the buthcer is a good guy, very goofy and always craking meat-related jokes. I can probably relate most of the episodes word for word i have seen them so many times-but they never get old. I like the show because it is a gentle escape, and while many say no family liek this exsist(and in this age,a lot don't)but i can guarentee that some do.They're are real life Brady Bunches, or at least people similar to the Brady kids. I have 2 Brady books, have seens "A Very Brady Christmas", the new Brady (fake) movies, and all the spins-offs, and now own all the regular, uncut episodes released up to this point. What can i say? I would just like to thank the genius of Sherwood Schwartz and his team, for giving the world this beloved show-and i can guarentee-as long as there are new generatiosn of kids(and adults) this show will live on. Long live the Bradys!
I rate this show a ten. I would rate it higher but ten is highest. I adore this show. Although it's a bit sugar coated and doesn't have modern day problems. It was a show who cared about family values. I never get tired of seeing the reruns many times over. We find out through biographies and special programs that there was a lot more drama and controversy going on behind the scenes. There's too much to tell here.
The movie and reunions are very well done too. I have seen every one. The movie is cast well with actors from the series showing up in places. If you haven't seen this series yet you don't know what you're missing. It's a classic ahead of its time.
This stuff is explained all in the theme song. It is about a man, Mike, and a wife, Carol, with 3 kids each, Greg, Marcia, Jan, Peter, Bobby and Cindy, and they meet and they learn to cope with each other along with Mike's maid named Alice.
I absoultely LOVE THIS SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Most people are like, "This is horrible and cheesy" I freaken' hate them! This is a really cute show and most of us can relate. Every show there is something that happens wrong, major or small. There are also some infamous moments. Go and watch it.
When the show was cancelled, it went into reruns and was badgered like other seventies icons, such as Nixon, the Oscars and disco.
It was hated during the eighties, while Gilligan\'s Island was fun.
That has all changed now
While I was born 20 years after the show first aired , the Brady Bunch is and always will be one of the greatest sitcoms of all time along with The Cosby Show and Happy Days. And suprising its the only show I have ever seen in television history were the husband and wige argue all the time, something that plagues modern sitcoms.
Its the story of a lovely lady(Carol),who was bringing up 3 very lovely girls(Marcia,Jan,Cindy).Its the story of a man named Brady who was busy with 3 boys of his own(Greg,Peter,Bobby) You know the rest.....
The Brady Bunch is probably one of the worst sitcoms in history but it had a cult following like nothing since....Some kids played house.... My cousin and I played The Brady Bunch.It has it's own cartoon,3 different series with a reunion cast. and several tv movies,an off broadway show , As well as two successful movies(with an updated cast). The Brady Bunch was it for me.... The world stopped Fridays at 8:00....Remember I was 5 at the time.... But when I was punished from watching the 3 Hawaii episodes I thought my life was over....Here I am 41 and still remember that. To be honest if I knew then that I would have the opportunity to see those episodes 5 million more times,I might not have been too upset.. Just think what they could do with the premise now????In the new millenium it could be its own desperate housewife?The blended family with kids that like each other so much that they start sleeping together???That would be a bit too much but I dont think a show that sweet could exist today Do you?
Here's the story, of a lovely lady, who was bringing up three very lovely girls. All of them had hair of gold, like their mother, the youngest one in curls. Here's the story, of a man named Brady, who was bringing up three boys of his own. They were four men, living all together, but they were all alone. And then one day when the lady met this fellow, and they knew it was much more than hunch, that this group must some how form a family, thats the way they all became the Brady Bunch. The Brady Bunch. Thats the way they became the Brady Bunch! Ands that not even close to being it! I really enjoy this show, despite the fact, it isn't really the most funniest show on television, but it was a real decent show. It never had any bad or cussing words, though everybody had their arguments, no real bad fist fights were in the show and every episode ended with a happy ending, and everybody loving each other. Two thumbs up for this show!
The Brady Bunch is what you would call a true classic. Bobby being saftey moniter. Cindy the tattletale. Peter's changing voice and breaking mom's vase. Marcia and her nose and when somethinng suddenly came up. Greg whipping out in Hawii and Jan's creepy voice that she can here. Go Bradys your awsome and my 5Th favorite show.
Best Season: 4
Best Episode Hawii Bound Part One
Always a great classic! The whole plot of the series is clever and comical. My personal favorites of the group are Bobby, Cindy, and Greg. Alice always makes me laugh. The Brady bunch have gone threw soooooo many adventures. The one flaw is that Tiger left the show too early and Fluffy was there for one episode! Whether it's being lost at the Grand Cantyon or Jane needing glasses, the family always pulls threw. There's a special something about the Brady Bunch that keeps auydiences drawn to the screen. Most shows have really special episodes. but the Brady Bunch has at least 18 classic episodes. That's what I truly love about this show. And everything else you can think of!
This show has been made fun of by critics and others as a silly tv show, as the family is too good to be true. However, any one who has watched all the episodes can identify with this tv family, as one that resembles their own family. The kids are constantely arguing, teasing, and competing with each other. Not the unrealistic, ideal family that it's detractors dismiss. Recurring themes, such as Jan being the middle child, in the shadow of Marcia,, and Bobby being insecure about his lack of height, show that this show did a remarkable job identifying with it's audience. Not an easy task for many shows.
