Sure, there are utterly ridiculous episodes, such as when Danny is tutoring a mob boss's girlfriend about the stock market and the gangster, not knowing Danny is only 10 years old, gets jealous--but most episodes feature ordinary show business conflicts or straightforward family issues, like how the kids cope when their mother starts dating or how teenager Laurie (Susan Dey, who later went on to L.A. Law) feels ugly when she gets braces. This simplicity, combined with some classic vaudeville-style humor, proves surprisingly durable. Plus, the list of guest stars ranges from Ray Bolger (best known as the Scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz) to a young Richard Pryor, as well as other soon-to-be-famous folk like Charlie's Angels' Farrah Fawcett and Jaclyn Smith and a pre-Star Wars Mark Hamill. The first season collection includes a bonus CD with four of the Partridge Family's actual radio hits; their sound, a fusion of the Monkees and the Mamas and the Papas, is pure pop sugar (created by a host of Brill Building songwriters like Neil Sedaka). If the Mondrian-inspired paint job on the Partridge Family bus gives you childhood flashbacks, you'll happily regress when you watch this box set. --Bret Fetzer
Fast shipping! We haven't played the DVD's yet, but the packaging is sealed and new, so we don't expect a problem. My son requested this for Christmas...uh...not sure why. Read morePublished 2 months ago by J M. Powers

Looked at this to see if I remembered it correctly from when I was a kid. I did, and probably won't watch again.Published 3 months ago by Kendall D. Corbett

|Why the Partridges were WAY COOLER than the Bradys||
I have said on other boards, that PF is way cooler because they handled topical issues of the day. Such as the Women's Movement, saving the whales, inter-religious dating, Indians living on reservations....to name a few?
The Brady's went no where NEAR anything like that.
