The Brady Bunch Episode #4

Hello everyone! Welcome to my very special Brady world. I’m reviewing ALL of The Brady Bunch episodes which is so very wonderful and special. I hope you come by often to check out my newest review. I try to post a Brady review once or twice a month. You are about to read my critique of episode number four. This episode is entitled “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore” and features the wonderfully funny Ann B. Davis. This episode originally aired on October 17, 1969. Hey! That was exactly 20 years before the big San Francisco earthquake which I was a part of. I don’t like when freeways and bridges collapse. Anyway, this episode is basically about Alice not feeling needed anymore.

Saturday Night Fever Soundtrack

Forty years ago this week, the soundtrack for Saturday Night Fever was released. That movie had a lot of nasty scenes in it. It was my first R rated movie and I was much too young to see all of that. My older sister and her friend snuck me in. I’ve been traumatized ever since. But I did like the music (and seeing John Travolta in his little tiny black underwear).

The music for this movie could have been totally different if Columbia Records had agreed to let them use Boz Scaggs’ Lowdown. The dance that Tony and Annette are shown rehearsing was originally choreographed to Lowdown. That kind of sucks for Boz Scaggs but was wonderful for the Bee Gees.

Friends

My friend Hilda told me about this new show called Friends. This was back in the mid 90’s when I was working in customer service for a newspaper company. I hadn’t started watching this new show called Friends, but I trusted Hilda’s opinion. I now watch Friends at least three times a day. Yes, I’ve seen all of the episodes and have many memorized word for word. So what? (Cue Miles Davis.)

Friends was/is one of the best shows ever. It ran for ten great seasons from 1994 to 2004. The show was originally called Insomnia Café before switching to Friends Like Us. The series finally decided to simply name the show Friends.

Welcome to my far out third review of The Partridge Family. This episode originally aired on October 9, 1970 and is called “Whatever Happened to The Old Songs?” This episode is about Shirley’s parents, played by Ray Bolger and Rosemary DeCamp, coming to visit. Her dad wants to be a cool and hip younger person, but mom is more level headed. Dad tries to join the music group and feelings are hurt but of course there’s a happy ending.

The Brady Bunch Episode #3

Brady Bunch

Eenie, Meenie, Mommy, Buhhoe. Hello, and thanks for joining me for the third installment of my Brady Bunch review! I’ve previously written a blog on the first two episodes which I hope you enjoyed. This episode features adorable little Susan Olsen as Cindy. I love The Brady Bunch and plan to give you my opinion on all 117 episodes. When I’m done with that, I may move on to their movies and other spin offs. Yeah, I have no life.

Donna Martin graduates. Donna Martin graduates. Donna Martin graduates. Donna Martin graduates.

What 90210 fan doesn’t remember that chant led by Brandon Walsh? Beverly Hills, 90210 aired on October 4, 1990 and stayed on the air for ten wonderful years. The show started out focusing on twins Brenda (Shannen Doherty) and Brandon (Jason Priestley) and various issues, but gradually turned into a yummy teenage soap opera.

The Brady Bunch Episode #2

Brady Bunch
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.

S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y NIGHT!

I was totally in love with Tony DeFranco when I was a little girl. He and his family were kind of a one hit wonder from Canada, and Tony was just gorgeous. When he started to get older (17 or 18), he started to become less of a teen star. I noticed his pictures weren’t as big on the cover of Tiger Beat. There were these other people with bad teeth starting to overtake the covers of the teen magazines. By 1975, The Bay City Rollers had invaded the U.S. Whatever. Bring back my Tony.

THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY EPISODE #2

Partridge Family

Come on now and meet everybody,
And hear us singin’.
There’s nothin’ better than being together
When we’re singin’.

Five of us, and Mom workin’ all day.
We knew we could help her if our music would pay.
And Danny got Reuben to sell our song
And it really came together when Mom sang along.

Come on now and meet everybody,
And hear us singin’.
There’s nothin’ better than being together
When we’re singin.’
When we’re singin.’
