Marsha Brady is back. and a poor family

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

once again i am loving these season 4 episodes that start with no stupid Tattoo Side story. Just a Hi boss, lets go and off they go. So nice.

So one story is this guy who is a MIT grad , whose poor hillbilly family supported him through college by selling all the good parts of their farm shows up asking to give his family the sweet life. They all end up at a mansion, with all the help you can ask for and are stupid and buy a lot of expensive crap that turns out can be replaced. But a guy, who the credits say is a guy who cons Hillbillies (just this one time i imagine, its how you write something commas and all that ) and sells them worthless Florida land for 2 million (i think it was somewhere in Miami lol). I wasn't sold the hillbillies were hillbillies but i grew up with Hillbillie JIm on wwf wrestling so .... so long story short, Mr Rourke helps con the con man and all is good, the guy falls in love with the con mans daughter, the sister gets a guy, they all leave happy and according to Rourke the con man will never cheat anyone else cause Rourke is watching , though i don't recall and future episodes of him saying "hey Tattoo, check and see if that hillbillie victimizing con man is up to anything".

The other story features yet again, Marsha Brady.And she didn't look hot, she had been doubting herself and was second fiddle to another gymnastic performer, her cousin and under her aunt was not liked. But some dude brings up her confidence, she develops "Carrie " like abilities to light floor mats around her cousin on fire and injure others, without the bionic woman noise i was hoping for and expecting, and then does some flips that are basic and cause her cousin and aunt to panic and start plotting ruining her chances to perform.

Turns out Aunt hates her cause her mother caused a car to crash to kill her brother also, both Marshas parents. IT was pretty cool to watch, not Knight Rider perfect nose dive explosion, it was more of a rolling down a grassy hill in a Grand Marquet car, then exploding after a little bump and riding down the hill on fire. pretty realistic.

so anyhow she had no confidence, some dude told her how awesome she was and this would set a feminist on fire and off the deep end, i was offended. So i think she won, and as they said, loosing changes peoples opinions and all the sudden, her cousin and aunt weren't mad at her and liked her. SOunds realistic. Tattoo was sad to see Marsha BRady go, as she kissed him and hoped shed be back. Don't worry Tattoo , i think she will be back like another six times at least.
