TV Nerd Alert

Re-watching the 1990 series "The Bradys". Maybe I'm overthinking a few things. Mike and Carol discover the house will have to be demolished because of a highway being built through the neighborhood. They decide to have the house moved to a new location instead. Now... the house was apparently on a slab, with a lot of stonework inside. That alone should have proven a HUGE snag in having it moved. Also, when it was being trucked down the street, in the frontal view, only the lower floor is seen, not even a roof. The sky is visible just barely above the front door. Yet, in the side view, the stairs and upper level is clearly seen.

Another "also"... When Mike is running his campaign for city councilman, they have a bank of phones set up IN THE HOUSE. For a short campaign, seems having THAT many lines run would have been hugely expensive. Then again, once, in the original series, they had a pay phone installed in the family room.

The first three episodes of "The Bradys", they opted, in my opinion correctly, to NOT have a laugh track. By the fourth episode, a laugh track is abruptly added. Seems they didn't know which direction they wanted to take the series. The show on the DVD set has not had any remastering done, even though the main parts of the show were shot on film, only the credits in the opening/closing titles processed on video. The entire series on the DVD set uses inferior broadcast quality tape masters, even see some video skew in a couple episodes.

Not sure why I'm getting so "nitpicky" in my old age. It IS just "The Brady Bunch" after all, NOT a DaVinci painting. One could never take the original or later series seriously... except maybe for the variety hour. 😛
