Did You Know?

A letter from Robert Reed to Sherwood Schwartz, critical of the writing and (in particular) the character of Skip Farnum, is included in Barry Williams' book, "Growing Up Brady." Reed contended that a better script (such as one with fewer clichés, "ninnyisms," more appropriate behavior from the adults, etc.) and character development could have made for a more believable story.See more »
