Editorial Reviews

2 episodes: Getting Davy Jones - Pumped for the prom, Marcia promises to get 60s heartthrob Davy Jones to make an appearance. Everyone thinks it's a done deal since she's president of his fan club. Everyone except Marcia, who has no idea how to contact him. The Subject Was Noses - Marcia loses by a nose when her swollen sniffer makes campus catch Doug Simpson cancel their date. Adding insult to injury, she broke a date with Charley to go out with Doug. Now Charley's nose is out of joint and Marcia has some major explaining to do.

This video contains the episodes "Getting Davy Jones" and "The Subject Was Noses". These are probably the two most famous Brady episodes. In the first one, Marcia's friends think that she got Davy Jones to play at her juniour high prom. Little do they know that Marcia doesn't even know Davy Jones. Fortunately, Davy happens to be in town, and Marcia has to get him to play at the prom. In the second episode, Marcia breaks a date in order to date the school football star. However, Marcia's nose gets swollen when Peter accidently hits her with a football. How ironic. Now the football player won't be seen with Marcia, who now has no date. Another classic episode with a great moral.
This is another great addition to any video library. A great video for not only Brady Bunch fans, but fans of The Monkees!

The Brady Bunch is a guilty pleasure of mine. It's ridiculously cheesey and stupid and unrealistic, but it's a great show to watch and make fun of. Plus it's a good show to help cheer you up, or to watch when you're sick.
Still, it's pretty stupid. I mean (everyone knows this already) the Brady family is SO perfect, what with the dad always giving horrible speeches everytime the kids say something mean to each other (they don't much, though), but most of the time he just does the ridiculous speeches for no reason. The kids are terriblly happy all the time, and the situations they always get themselves into are just plain dumb!
Carol Brady (Florence Henderson) is only there to say stuff like "Oh, Mike," or "Your father's right." The kids are all very one dimensional yet fun to watch. Alice does nothing but say dumb jokes however I respect Ann B. Davis as an actress (not that she is one anymore).
Of course everyone also know that the late Michael Reed dispised this show, and he had good reason, especially with the way his character acts. Everyone seems to regret starring on this show! Serious. Just watch the E True Hollywood Story on The Brady Bunch, and see. Susan Olsen (Cindy) sais she's been stereotyped ever since. Barry Williams (Greg) claims it's now very hard to get a job, and Florence Henderson sais the show was to unrealistic, and so on.
Still, you gotta love the show. How can't you? The people that hate this show have no heart. I'm mean, it's a horrible show, but it's a wonderful show! Sound strange? Sorry, but come on, even you people who bash it here really love it, and you know it. Why? Because it's really entertaining, and some episodes are actually GOOD (the Hawaii episode early in the show).
Don't buy these DVDs, the show is on all the time. But do buy the Brady movies, they're hilarious!

If you absolutely have a soft spot for that little hunny off of the Monkees, u HAVE to see this movie. The thing I liked most about it is that it came out just one year after the Monkees broke up, and Davy looks exactly the same as he did in the television show. Don't worry, whether you're a Monkee fan or not, this movie will not leave you in dissapointment. :-)

I can't say the Brady Bunch is even close to being one of my favorite shows but you have to be a Scrooge not to like it! Especially the Davy Jones episode! I love that one (ok, maybe it has something to do with the fact that I love The Monkees, but...) Anyway, worth it just for that episode, i never see it on the thousands of Brady re-runs daily!

We are not talking lofty standards here when we recognize the fact that this particular set of episodes from "The Brady Bunch" contains two of the show's signature episodes from the perspective of American pop culture. The common denominator here is the oldest female Brady, Marcia (Maureen McCormick), in what are clearly her two most famous misadventures. "Getting Davy Jones" (Episode #61, December 10, 1971) has Marcia promising to get teenage hearthrob Davy Jones of the Monkees to sing at her school prom. Unfortunately, this appearance is news to Davy. Good thing this is a television comedy otherwise this would end badly for Marcia. Marcia, Marcia, Marcia gets her comeuppance in "The Subject Was Noses" (Episode #90, February 9, 1973), when she gets hit in the nose with a football. The nose swells up like a balloon and because of the disfigurement Marcia's boyfriend Doug Simpson (Nicholas Hammond) ditches her. Obviously no great loss, but it sure bothers little miss vanity. For fan's of neglected sister Jan this has to be the most popular episode of "The Brady Bunch" ever. You do not have to like these episodes let alone "The Brady Bunch," but you do have to at least know about them as touchstones of pop culture. P.S. Pay attention to the guest stars besides Davy Jones on these episodes and their importance in television history. The first one has Marcia Wallace, who went on to success on "The Bob Newhart Show" as receptionist Carol Kester and who know provides the voice for Bart's teacher Edna Krabappel on "The Simpsons." Nicholas Hammond from the other episode ended up as television's "Spider-Man" after being one of the Von Trapp children in "The Sound of Music."
