Product Description

THE BRADY BUNCH – THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON tells the story of Carol, a single mother of three girls and architect Mike Brady, a single father of three boys, 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.

The Brady Bunch never scored high ratings during its five year run, but this friendly family comedy has remained in reruns ever since, while bigger hits have slipped into oblivion. Pretty much everyone who grew up in the 1970s or '80s knows the show inside and out: A vision of suburban family life so utopian it's as fantastical as Neverland or Santa's workshop--and just like these imaginary realms, it casts a spell over every kid who wished all problems could be resolved with a few wise words, a good-natured shrug, or a winsome smile. The Brady Bunch: The Complete Second Season is indistinguishable from every other season, but the reassuring formula is crucial to the show's appeal. Eldest brother Greg (Barry Williams) may decide he's all grown up and wants a groovy bachelor pad, or eldest sister Marcia (Maureen McCormick) may get all riled up about women's lib and decide to join the Frontier Scouts, or super-maid Alice (Ann B. Davis, whose persona is hilariously similar to Ellen DeGeneres) may fantasize about running off with an old flame, but by the end of the show you know everything will return to a zen-like domestic harmony.

It's all pretty bizarre when you realize that both halves of the family have suffered the death of a parent! The most angst to be found is the relentless identity crisis of middle sister Jan (Eve Plumb), who tries to remove her freckles with lemon juice and buys a curly brunette wig to forge a new self-image. Nowadays Jan would be a prime candidate for bulimia, but in the Brady world such psychodrama is unthinkable. This even emotional keel could have been creepy and antiseptic, but due to the charm of the kids and the smooth yet earthy presence of Robert Reed and Florence Henderson as parents Mike and Carol Brady, The Brady Bunch just seemed nice. You wanted that to be your family. If you watched the show in your childhood, watching The Brady Bunch: The Complete Second Season as an adult will lull you into a sweet, blissful dream. --Bret Fetzer

This is a show that just keeps going and going. I cannot even beleive that it's been over 30 years since this show went off the air. I loved spending my Friday evenings as a kid with the Brady's! The Brady Bunch is truly a pop culture icon in the history of TV. A fanstastic show about family values. No matter what problems came up, they were always resolved by the end of the show. And then there's the Brady house. I always loved that house with the big stairway up to the second floor, the family room with the walkout patio, the cool attic....Just a wonderful show that doesn't get old.

My favorite episodes from season two are:

"the Dropout" Greg thinks he's going to be a big league pitcher and considers dropping out of high school. Dodger pitching great Don Drysdale guest stars

"The Slumber Caper" Marcia has a slumber party and the boys are happy as it gives them the chance to scare the girls.

"A Fistful of Reasons" A bully is making fun of Cindy due to her lisp. Peter is at first afraid of the bully but then cleans his clock.

"The not so ugly Duckling" A classic as Jan is feeling envious of Marcia so she invents an imaginary boyfriend from another town named George Glass.

"Where there's smoke" Greg gets caught smoking and Marcia rats him out!

"Will the Real jan Brady Please Stand up" Another classic as jan again is feeling the middle child blues and buys a horrible looking black wig.

"The Liberation of Marcia Brady" Marcia is all for women's lib and decides to join Gregs boy scout troop to prove she can do anything a boy can do.

"Double parked" The Bradys lead a crusade to save a park but it's Mike's company that is planning to build there.

It's so hard to pick favorites as this is such a great show. Even though these are still in re-run it's great to have them on DVD!

A year (at least) older, the Bradys return to continue learning about life--and each other. Twenty three episodes in this season (1970-1971) actually do a good job of showing that even the 'bunch' is not perfect.

Greg searches for himself this season. First he gets an office boy job at Mike's office in "Call me Irresponsible", but quickly looses the plans for a very important project. In "Where there is smoke" Greg is caught smoking nicotine cigarettes with his friends; this episode probably has more punch with today's numerous anti-youth smoking initiatives than it did in an era when advertising restrictions were much less lax.

Finally, in "Our son, the man" Greg decides that he needs his own 'crash pad' and moves into Mike's den. He also decides that he will start calling his parents by their first names, but this is not permanent change in the Brady universe. Greg ultimately moves back in with his brothers (at least for this season) and once again uses `mom and dad'.

Cindy and Jan also come into their own as characters during this season. Cindy deals with the bully Buddy Hinton, who makes fun of her speech ("A fistful of reasons") with Peter's assistance, and Bobby feels compelled to win his own merit ("The winner") to catch up with everybody else in this family. Nothing is as ever smooth as it had initially seemed in the Brady household.

"Will the real Jan Brady please stand up" has Jan buy an admittedly cheap wig in her own latest attempt to stand out from the more 'popular' members of the Bunch. She had previously invented George Glass for similar purposes in another episode ("The not-so-ugly-duckling").

This season continues telling the way they became the Brady Bunch with just the right amounts of sugar and spice mixed together. Keep the seasons coming.

Anytime you watch the Brady Bunch you go back to a simpler and more innocent time. When any challenge/problem such as Peter breaking Mom's lamp, Greg needing his own room, Bobby falling out of the treehouse or Jan wanting to be a brunette can be solved in 20 minutes you know you have come to the right place. This is great and recommended for children of any age.

Sit back and get lost in Bradyland.

THEY'RE BAAACK!! It's "The Brady Bunch: Season 2" and this season has some of the best episodes of that groovy, happening, way far-out gang we all know as "the Brady's!" Out of these 24 super cool episodes, my personal faves are: "The Slumber Caper," with Marcia, Jan, and Cindy hosting a sleepover and the boys, Greg, Peter, and Bobby serving up some pranks. "A Fistful of Reasons" has Peter confronting a schoolyard bully who teases Cindy with `baby talk, baby talk, it's a wonder she can walk." "Will The Real Jan Brady Please Stand Up?" featuring Jan and her notorious black wig. "Our Son, The Man" brings Greg into the hip and happening age of being a man, and "The Liberation of Marcia Brady" has Marcia struggling to join Greg's "boy scout" club and Peter's laughable attempt to become a "sunflower" (a "girl scout" type club). This season is definitely a winner and has some of the best if not "the" best of the "Bunch." Followed by three more great seasons of school day hi-jinx, family vacations, and lots of childhood and teenage fun! "The Brady Bunch: Season 2" contains the most memorable episodes of the series, and is an essential part of this TV collection, with all five complete seasons available on DVD!! They're far-out, groovy, and out-of-sight!
