S1, Episode 13: The Crimes of the Brady Bunch

 

 

It’s the story of a lovely lady and a man named Brady, who whisk their kids (and Alice, of course) off to Hawaii for a week of fun and horror, as Vincent Price tries to kill the boys. And all over a cheap little tiki. And when they get back, things just go to hell.

Join us as we discuss the first six episodes of Season 4 of the Brady Bunch: Hawaii Bound, Pass the Tabu, The Tiki Caves, Today I am a Freshman, Cyrano de Brady and Fright Night.

S1, Episode 3: The Crimes of the Brady Bunch

It’s the story of a lovely lady and a man named Brady… who wonder if it’s OK for a woman to be a doctor, gleefully and sadistically mete out punishments to Marcia, who only wants to honor her dad, have a lot of fun with the word pink, and finally get rid of Tiger (Tiger number 3!).

On Episode 3 we cover Brady Bunch season 1, episodes 13 through 18: Is There a Doctor in the House, Father of the Year, 54-40 and Fight, Mike’s Horror-Scope, The Undergraduate and Tiger! Tiger!

S1, Episode 1: The Crimes of the Brady Bunch

It’s the story of a lovely lady and a man named Brady… who can’t tell the truth, hate Indians, treat Alice the same way they treat the dog and think women should acquiesce to men. And then there’s the sticky problem of Carol’s first husband…

On Episode 1 we cover Brady Bunch season 1, episodes 1 through 6: The Honeymoon, Dear Libby, Eenie Meanie Mommie Daddy, Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, Katchoo and A Clubhouse is not  a Home.

Groovy Tube: It’s gonna be solid

You know you want to talk about the The Brady Bunch. There’s so much. Mike’s lectures (“Now, kids, America is a country of laws…”)
The odd fact of Alice.
The easy misogyny, sexual harassment and ethnic stereotyping.
That AstroTurf lawn.
The logistics of the opening sequence.
What happened to Fluffy?
We do, too.
So join us as we discuss the show’s episodes from 1969 through 1974, as well as what went on behind the scenes with the stars, both then and later, and Barry Williams’ (Greg! Keep up!) assessment of each episode in his 1991 autobiography.

We’ll also discuss the lost episodes — those that aren’t available any more though conventional streaming (though you can still find bootlegs on YouTube!).

So look for our first episodes dropping the WEEK OF JUNE 26.

And once we’re done with that, stay tuned for “The Very Solid World of the Mod Squad.” It’ll be far out.
