  • Lonely millionaire falls in love with the Partridge family...or at least their music.

    John Astin (Gomez Addams; had to throw that in) gives a very convincing performance as a reclusive millionaire who hires the Partridges to perform for him and only for him. Needless to say, everyone finds that a little unsettling and try to get Sidney to be a little more social rather than just buying out the audiences in all their shows. When a nosy reporter who interview the Partridges realizes Sidney is there in the house with him, it hits the news that night. But there is no throng of people outside the Partridges housee the next day and Sidney realizes he is not as popular as he thinks. He shows up at the next concert and sits among the crowd. This episode also feature my favorite Partridge Family song, "One Night Stand"
