The children complain about the lack of space and privacy in their home. Mike takes the complaints seriously and puts the house up for sale. The kids immediately have remorse and devise a scheme to scare off potential buyers.

If a person compares The Brady Bunch to any current show on the Disney Channel, they will find that the shows are actually funny. No one on The Brady Bunch overacts. None of the shows are embarrassingly stupid, like so many current shows. None of them are laden with heavy sexual innuendos or anything else that you don't want children to see. These shows were made for the family with actual family values tied in.
I love this show. I've grown up with it, and probably know every episode. But my kids don't know it and the children's shows on TV today are either cartoony (Callou, Dora, Angelina Ballerina etc) or what I consider inappropirate for kids. I haven't seen a show recently with children who behave well and act as good children should. Or a show with nice family dynamics. So ....bring back te Brady Bunch! My daughers age 4 and 6 have now seen two episodes and absolutely LOVE it. I'm so happy I bought it even though I've seen them so much I'm kind of sick of them. Watching with the fresh eyes of my kids makes me like it all over again.
I'll quote my 12 year-old son first: "More people should watch The Brady Bunch!" I assume you are aware of the show's premise and charm, so I won't bother with discussing merits of the show itself. This very reasonably priced set suffers from uneven video imagery at times, which is its only drawback in my view. While most of the time the video quality looks great -- incredibly sharp -- on my HDTV, in certain episodes, and in certain scenes, the image is very grainy and less defined. I don't know all the technical reasons for this, but it is quite noticeable at times. However, the show is so good that these temporary distractions (at least for a videophile like me) are vastly outweighed by the enjoyment provided by the enchanting stories and characters in each and every episode.
Wrote a bad review initially because the cover graphic on the set appeared to be completely different from what I ordered. Discovered that it had been wrapped with a different graphic on top of the original before packaging. After removing the false graphic cover, this is exactly what I wanted- thank you!!

I am 41 and watched The Brady Bunch all the time as a kid. We bought these DVDs for our daughters (8 and 10) to watch--they LOVE the show, and it's "kid's" TV that we actually enjoy watching with them. This show is so much better than 99% of what's available now; my daughters laugh and laugh and always end up learning some lesson (and have I mentioned how much less painful it is to have this playing than, say, Hannah Montana??). My husband made the observation that, back then, families tended to watch more television together, and I get that (though I usually watched it alone after school!). Our kids don't watch much TV, but I'm totally happy to have them watch the BB! *Also, if you're into showing your kids some old-school shows, ours also love Gilligan's Island.
I think this review might be a bit biased because I am probably the biggest Brady fan that ever lived!
I bought this DVD back in 2005 (along with all the other seasons) but thinking of picking up another to keep on reserve as I know that eventually mine will be worn out.
I find that with many oldies, I am disappointed as it is not quite what I remembered. They usually end up boring me and become dust collectors.
The Brady's is one of those DVDs I pop into the machine especially after a long, hard day in the real world and am instantly taken back in time when life seemed a whole lot easier. This show will actually bring back memories of my childhood that were long forgotten. I once even remembered a blue summer sky and the smell of freshly cut grass :)
I highly recommend this DVD to anyone who was ever a Brady fan. You will not regret it!

I'm not old enough to have seen this series originally run on network TV, but I did grow up with it on TVLand on Nick at Night. This is a great deal at the current price under $10, I paid nearly double that years ago. The added featurettes are perfect for hearing cast remarks looking back on the show.
At one time on TVLand/NickatNight, they did Popup versions of the Brady Bunch which, as you might imagination, had popup facts through out the show. Of all the seasons on DVD, sadly this feature doesn't appear in any of them. Having a classic show like this on DVD, and at a great price is a tremendous value. Especially when you consider the syndicated versions that appear on TV today are chopped down to add commercials in and leave out various scenes from the original episodes.
Great trip down memory lane. Agree with all the other comments about good clean family fun, but I must admit I did not like the programme when it was current. It was too namby pamby for me really and I completely took it for granted, it just always seemed to be on. Looking back on it now it has a quality to it that I like, probably mainly nostalgia. As the Bradys were so "with it" and "happening" they have every stereotypical seventies gadget going. The hairstyles, bright orange and yellow clothes, the architecture, the furniture, everything. Great to watch now, especially if you have seen the 1995 parody movie - you can spot all the plot elements they mimicked and see them in their original glory :) Absolutely love it.
I loved them as a child, my children love them now. We see the same episodes over and over and still enjoy them. They also teach good values, manners and everyday lessons which make kids reflect. I love anything clean-cut for kids just wish the real world was so clean cut too, which would be the only downfall as sometimes you find yourself explaining that people used to do this and that. But then again it can't hurt for them to view something positive and give it a try.
I love to watch the old TV shows, reminds me of my childhood. You can catch up on all the bits you missed as a kid. We live in an age where we are very lucky to have access to goods like this on Amazon. Excellent for Amazon, and the customer.
THE BRADY BUNCH - THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON tells the story of Carol, a single mother of three girls - Marcia, Jan and Cindy and architect Mike Brady, a single father of three boys - Greg, Peter and Bobby who get married and blend the two families into one. Added to the mix are housekeeper Alice and dog Tiger. The Bradys' experience the same obstacles as any family, from adjusting to their new extended family, to sibling rivalry. The comedy series famous for its catchy theme song truly has become a pop culture icon and is still enjoyed by viewers of all ages. Because of Gilligan's Island and The Brady Bunch, writer-producer Sherwood Schwartz will forever be a TV hall-of-famer. They were his only real hits, but they were both grand slams in their prime times and have remained syndicated favorites ever since. Following closely on the Gilligan's Island season 2 release, The Brady Bunch is ready for home theaters with a nicely designed, 4-disc set of 25 first-season episodes. The pilot episode, "The Honeymoon" sets up the story we all know from the theme song (lyrics by Schwartz) by giving us the marriage of Mike and Carol and the coming together of the six kids. Schwartz provides commentary for just this first show, but he fondly recalls his intention of sweet, subdued, and often corny gags the pre-fab family encountered as a precise format each week. Two other episodes include commentary by Barry Williams (Greg), Christopher Knight (Peter), and Susan Olson (Cindy), and their reminiscences are equally affectionate about time on the show and everyone's surprise at its enormous success. Every Brady episode is a classic in some sense, and this first of five seasons (those kids did grow up fast) includes some real charmers when the six Brady kids still seemed impossibly young. It's hard to say the show was ever hip, even though it became slightly more attuned to a pop sensibility as the Bradys moved into the '70s. But man, is this 1969 everyfamily ever square. Even so, it's hard to resist the way each one gets their own screen time with shows devoted to simple childhood joys and traumas--Jan's missing locket, Cindy's missing baby doll, Greg's crush on his math teacher, Peter's swelled head when he gets his picture in the paper, etc.

Beste und "sauberste" Familienserie die ich kenne. Immer was zum Lachen, in jeder Folge. Brady Bunch war eigentlich die "Mutter" der Family Sitcoms in den USA. man sehnt sich so richtig nach den guten alten Zeiten zurück, als Inhalte mehr Wert waren als Action.
Die Serie eignet sich hervorragend zum Englischlernen für Schulkinder. Das Englisch ist einfach gehalten, die Aussprache der Schauspieler ist sehr gut, lediglich Cindy, die Jüngste ist wegen ihres Alters etwas schwerer zu verstehen, aber da gibt es ja die Untertitel. Die DVDs sind nur in Englischer Sprache und mit Englischen Untertiteln. Es gibt weitere Untertitel in Finnisch, Schwedisch, etc... aber nicht in Deutsch.
It's a lot of fun for the whole family!! Und der Preis ist echt ok.!
