From Amazon.co.uk

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 favourites 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. As it was during its TV run, The Brady Bunch on DVD is clearly meant for a specific generation--yours. --Ted Fry

4.0 out of 5 stars Here's A Story.... 18 July 2008
Format:DVD
Forget what you think you know, especially if all you have seen or heard about the Brady Bunch are the film parodies. This is the pure, unadulterated family TV show aimed at families. Actually, it is aimed at the CHILDREN in families, and is told from the children's point of view. It's the iconic show that was so well beloved, it just HAD to be parodied, all in good fun of course!

The premise of the show was quite simple. In 1965, divorce levels were rising to previously unprecedented levels, and more and more families were being blended. TV producer Sherwood Schwartz had a current comedy hit with American broadcaster CBS, Gilligan's Island, and previous experience writing for Ozzie and Harriet, so he was a hot property. Seeing a newspaper article about the rising levels of divorce and how now nearly 30% of families had at least 1 child in it from a previous relationship, he conceived the idea of a sitcom about a blended family and all the issues that came with it.As one might expect, the blending of a family led to conflicts between the parents as well as the siblings, some because of the very blending, and others over normal family issues, like someone hogging the bathroom. Personal insecurities, first crushes, new glasses, bullies and more were all explored, with gentle humour and sensitivity. Clean, wholesome, funny, it was and is yet relevant to the everyday issues facing kids trying to grow up, get along with their family, and get on with school and friends. The Brady children and their friends who appeared from time to time were three dimensional and played realistically enough that children even today recognise themselves, which is a rare feat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grrreat! 25 July 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.
