    S1, Episode 35: The Crimes of the Brady Bunch

    In our last Season 1 episode, we discuss two of our favorite Brady Bunch episodes and some other stuff as we wrap up the series. It’s not good bye, though, just see you later. Season two begins July 15! And it’ll be solid, man.

    S1, Episode 34: The Crimes of the Brady Bunch

    We can’t leave The Brady Bunch behind without talking about its main character — the house! And what better way to do that than to discuss the HGTV miniseries “A Very Brady Renovation.”

    Everyone knows, famously, how the exterior shots of the Brady home didn’t match the interior — either of the set or the real house used for the exterior shots. HGTV bought the mid-century modern Studio City house in 2018 and, with the help of the Brady kid actors and a stable of HGTV stars, managed to recreated the interior down to… well, almost everything.

    How does it stack up? We discuss.

    S1, Episode 33: The Crimes of the Brady Bunch

    S1, Episode 33: The Crimes of the Brady Bunch

    And it all comes to a close for the Man Named Brady and his bunch. In the final episode of the original series, The Hair-Brained Scheme, Bobby’s get-rich-quick-scheme hair tonic turns Greg’s hair orange the day before his high school graduation. On top of it, Cindy tries to jump on the get rich bandwagon with a really disturbing subplot about breeding rabbits. And where’s Mike to dispense fatherly wisdom? Nowhere to be found, as his creative battle with the Schwartz family comes to an ugly little end. Season 5, Episode 22 of The Brady Bunch.

    We go deep into the issues between the Schwartz guys and Robert Reed in our next-to-the-last episode of our own Season 1.  Because, after all, there’s a little Bob Reed in all of us, isn’t there? Or at least in the two of us.

    After our final episode on the Brady Bunch in two weeks, stay tuned for Season 2, covering The Mod Squad, dropping June 3.  The original TV show, NOT any silly movie or anything that came after.

    S1, Episode 32: The Crimes of the Brady Bunch

    Mike’s boss Mr. Matthews (Yes! we know it used to be Mr. Phillips! Don’t worry, we cover that) sends him a pool table for doing such a great job on the Whitley project. Bobby becomes a pool shark. What could possibly go wrong? We discuss The Hustler, Season 5, Episode 21, of The Brady Bunch. Jim Backus – Thurston Howell III — makes a special guest appearance.

    S1, Episode 31: Crimes of the Brady Bunch

    Good old-fashioned Brady trickery is back with a vengeance in Season 5, Episode 20, “Snooperstar.” Marcia decides to teach Cindy a lesson for snooping, in what’s probably the most humiliating episode of misused and underused Susan Olsen’s career. The only upside? A guess visit from Natalie Schaefer, aka Lovey, Mrs. Thurston Howell III, as yet another one of Mike’s rich, entitled and crazy female clients. As you can imagine, we have a lot to say.

The Mod Squad! Let’s give it a try!

I am retracting an earlier review. I want to thank you for a wonderful recap of the Brady Bunch episodes. At the end of the Brady Bunch season you articulated your intent and desire for podcasting in general. This is truly a passion project and something you enjoy sharing. That is wonderful and I think your passion will carry over to the listeners. It doesn’t matter what the specific content is. As a society, we always are help accountable to someone. Nice to break away once in while. Look forward to sharing your excitement next season .

Love this show. It is amazing

There are a lot of Brady Bunch podcasts out there. Most of them are average at best. Even the real Brady Bros is on the lower spectrum of quality there are two that are amazing. This is one of the two best out there by far I love the host and how they break down each of the shows I’ve been listening to this podcast for years they took a couple year break as one of the host was riding a book. They also have a podcast around crime, they used to do four or five episodes per podcast and it would be rushed through but now they’re doing an episode every podcast. I really hope they consider going back and doing a more deep dive on the earlier seasons as their analysis and information they share from the books and from even listening to other podcasts is really great for any Brady Bunch fan I strongly strongly recommend this podcast

Hilarious & Nostalgic!

I didn’t grow up in the 70s, but my mom graduated in ‘77 and I grew up watching and snarking on the Brady Bunch with her. I have laughed during this podcast more than I have in a long time. Thank you both for bringing it back! You’ve got a huge fan in me and may I please suggest Happy Days as a future feature on Groovy Tube!
