Alice was everything to that family. She cooked the food, cleaned the house, did the laundry, took care of the dog, the kids, the parents, and not once did she complain. The only thing she didn't do was have sex with Mike Brady. Did Alice ever get a day off? What was Carol doing while Alice did all the work? Sitting on her behind all day, then decides to get up and greet Mike when he came home. I don't see that there was a need for her to be there because she and Mike only kissed and embraced -- they never had sex. Sex wasn't even implied. It was even implied that Lucy and Ricky had sex because they had Little Ricky and that was in the 50's.

I'm done with my rant.

Back on my rant.

I wouldn't go so far as to say that the show was stupid... it was just "unrealistic". I mean, these guys lived in Los Angeles County in the 1970s and not one of those kids experimented with any drugs or alcohol, or rebelled at home or school, or had no peer pressure of any kind. There was no issue of infidelity between the parents; they never had any real disagreements to where they stopped speaking to each other. There weren't any money issues. Mike Brady must have been making some real big bucks to be able to afford a house note, two cars, feeding/clothing six kids, paying for a housekeeper, giving his wife and kids allowances, taking care of a dog, buying food and paying for the general maintenance of the house.

I know he was an architect, but I'm sure his firm didn't pay him that well.

i think that Alice is the mother of Paulie Walnuts from 'The Sopranos'...they both have the same gray hair-wings above their ears.

Uh Peter my friend, you need some major help. Are you aware The Brady Bunch was just a silly comedy show? Nothing more and nothing less. It was also hardly the only comedy show without much forethought. Since you seem to remember every episode it's quite obvious you never missed one. So when did we ever see ma & pa Walton having sex yet they had like what, 7 kids? While you suggest Alice did all of the work - that's what the hired help does! Yet, if you want to go there, it seems to me they included their "maid" on every family outing including their vacations. Can you remember the Grand Canyon, Hawaii and then King's Island???????????? If you wanted all of the true stuff that goes along with life, there was also Marcus Welby, MD which would have provided you with all of the drama you could have handled. Also, Charlie's Angels had 3 of the hottest broads ever on television yet none of them ever had boyfriends and/or had sex. It's just TV and back then, before cable, TV was about as clean as possible. You also brought up I Love Lucy, are you aware the network would not show them in the same bed????? Yet not only were the married on the show, we also know they were married in real life.

Uh Illinois person -- first of all, you do not know me, nor am I your friend; and second, why is it that I need "major help"? Is it because I made an observation based on my view of the characters on this show and I just happened to compare one aspect of it to I Love Lucy. I didn't watch Marcus Welby or Charlie's Angels so I cannot comment on them.

I am well aware that the Brady Bunch is just a television sitcom -- and nothing more than that. I am merely stating an observation which I am allowed to do.

Uh Peter - I say you need help because when you start talking about the sex lives, or lack there of, of fictional tv people that's pretty sad. Then you went on and on about how could the dad have provided for his family. Again, it was only a TV show. However, Good Times always touched base on their money woes and it really wasn't done again until the late 80s with Rosanne. But I guess you never watched those shows either. It's just odd that you question how a fictional TV family was paying their bills and how overworked their maid was. Just odd!!

Uh Illinois person -- When I watched the Brady Bunch, I was only a child. When I became an adult, I noticed now unrealistic certain aspects of this show were; which is the reason for my comments. In what way is this odd?

I also watched Good Times and Roseanne and found that, even though they were also fictional, I could identify more with them -- as I believe many people could. I also watched the Cosby Show, but, to many African Americans, that show was about as real as the Brady Bunch. Observation: the Huxtables were both working professionals, and they did not have a maid.

Hey Peter . . . . the Brady's did have financial difficulties. Why do you think they had that pay phone installed?

BTW that pay phone episode contained the best Brady Bunch line EVER:
Sam the Butcher: "What's wrong Alice? I know somethings bothering you when you criticize Sam's meat!"

Peter, please don't live vicariously through friendships via the computer. It's already odd enought that you identify way too much with people who are not real. So, are you now suggesting that (people) African-Americans can't be as successful as say the Huxtables? Bill Cosby himself would beg to differ with you. If so, you're opening up a major can of worms. Do you know who our newest president is? What is your beef whether some tv show has a maid or not? ...and yeah, most shows become obiviously unrealistic the older you get and/or the older the tv show is. But again, it's only make believe and only meant as a form of entertainment or tounge-in-cheeck. AGAIN, THEY ARE NOT REAL!!!!!!!!
