Looks like a Brady Bunch episode
27 March 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Selling of the Partridge" is probably the one PARTRIDGE FAMILY episode that most looks like a BRADY BUNCH episode. Laurie is excited to be managing the campaign for student body president on behalf of her friend Phyllis Goldberg (Holly Near). That is, until she learns that big brother Keith is her opponent, after which it's all out war within the family. Keith is confident that he will win, until after he debates Phyllis, duly impressed by her knowledge of the issues. One would expect Greg and Marcia in this scenario, it's less interesting on this show. In lieu of a victory speech, we get David Cassidy's third and final self-penned track issued by The Partridge Family, "There'll Come a Time" (from fifth LP SHOPPING BAG), an upbeat ballad, in contrast to "Lay It On the Line" and "Love Is All That I Ever Needed," both heavy rockers.
