Trivia:
The show is sometimes believed to be the first to show a married couple (Mike and Carol) sleeping in the same bed. There were actually a number of shows in which this happened earlier, including "Green Acres" (1965), "The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet" (1952), "The Munsters" (1964), and in animation, "The Flintstones" (1960). The very first had been "Mary Kay and Johnny" (1947) back in the late-1940s.See more »

Saleswoman:Oh, so we want a complete change do we?
Jan Brady:Yes ma'me.
Saleswoman:Ok. What kind of style are you looking for?

Brady is an emotion. Good or bad is up to you., 12 March 2005
Author: ruinously from United States

I was born four years after "The Brady Bunch" went off the air, so I have no clue how people felt about it when it was actually on prime time television. But as a child growing up in the 1980s, watching "The Brady Bunch" in the afternoon was always fun. I think this is one of the most feel-good shows of all time.

It is obvious "The Brady Bunch" is not based on reality. If a false view of the world turns you off, this show will not entertain you. No family is this perfect, and the problems that came up were usually very trivial 90 percent of the time. Yet any show that portrays family life as this great should be thanked in some way.

The characters and the actors that play them are all great. How can you not like the young Brady brood? How can you not see the greatest aspects of your own parents in Carol and Mike? It just can not be done. The greatest roles for me personally were Bobby, Greg, Alice, Mike, Carol and Marcia.

My personally favorite episode is the one where the family goes to King Cove amusement park in Ohio and Jan loses Mike's plans. I just find the aspect of a California family going to Ohio for a vacation as delicious.

I have been watching reruns of "The Brady Bunch" for almost twenty years. This is in my top ten television shows of all time. Only a few episodes turn me off (less then 5 percent) and most of them actually make me feel very good. I will continue to watch "The Brady Bunch" and consider it one of the greatest products of television, America and Earth.
