50 years ago today, “The Brady Bunch” premiered on television for the first time. In honor of this special milestone, I’d like to tell you about my experiences of being a fan of this classic TV show. I would watch the show on Nick at Nite several nights a week whenever I was a teenager … and, then, I would watch it on various other cable TV channels for a few more years after that, including Hallmark Channel, TV Land and Me TV. This show is one of the best shows of all time … and the show’s characters are all fantastic.
Currently, you can watch “The Brady Bunch” on Sundays from noon until 2 p.m. on Me TV. You may see an episode that you really like at some point in that time frame. Now, I don’t really have a favorite character on the show, but I do have a favorite episode of the show … and that would be “Greg Gets Grounded” from the show’s fourth season. There’s one part of the show that I could relate to in a way. About halfway through the show, Greg wants his parents to use “exact words” with him so that he would know exactly what they were saying … and, in my case, I would tell my relatives and my friends to use “exact words” with me since I’m autistic. That’s because autistic people like myself want people to speak with them as clearly as possible, so I can relate to that part of “Greg Gets Grounded” in a big way.
So, today, I would like to wish “The Brady Bunch” a happy 50th anniversary! Is there an episode of the show that you like … and do you have a favorite character on the show? Leave a comment if you have a favorite “Brady Bunch” character and/or a favorite “Brady Bunch” episode.
