Welcome to my Brady review of episode two! This episode originally aired on October 3, 1969 and is called “Dear Libby”. It guest-starred Jo De Winter as Elizabeth “Dear Libby” Carter, an Ann Landers rip-off. Winter is best known for roles in Dirty Harry, Gloria, and Bird.
This episode opens with Marcia in her bedroom reading the paper. She’s reading the Dear Libby column to Jan while Cindy plays with her doll. Marcia realizes one of the Dear Libby letters from Harried & Hopeless sounds awfully similar to her new family. Harried & Hopeless hates their new blended family of three boys and three girls. Marcia starts to freak out and assumes that Mom or nu-Dad wrote the letter to the newspaper.
