Growing Up Brady

Back to the love action: Greg asks Marcia if she wants to go outside for a smoke. "Oh I don't do that -- but I'll come watch you." She then coyly asks, "What does it feel like?" "Oh, great! You should try it," Greg says, all pro-smoking. Marcia grabs the cigarette and blows smoke rings in his face. "Wow, you sure had me fooled," he smirks. She says, "Don't get me wrong, I've smoked before. But I've never been kissed by a boy before." Like she'd kissed sheep before? ["I don't remember that little confession from the book, either." -- Sars] Anyway, they get called back to the set before they can get their freak on. And who wrote the dialogue here? Tiger?

Sherwood gathers everyone around to tell them he has not heard back from the network yet, but he feels confident that they will get picked up for another season. He then thanks them for a great season number one, and everyone claps and hugs. Marcia asks Greg, "Do you think we'll be canceled?" Greg's hormones answer, "Well, if we do, I may never see you again." "We'll just have to wait and see." These actors are really intolerable -- they're supposed to be completely crushed on each other, but they're acting like they just met and don't care to continue the relationship. Not that I blame them.

During the summer hiatus, the Brady kids talk to each other in split screens. Technology! They discuss the possibility of cancellation, but, at the last minute, Sherwood calls to tell them they are back on.

They meet and greet on the set and begin filming "Kachoo!," the episode where Jan is allergic to Tiger. All the girls are in tears, not because of the lame-ass plots, but because the real Tiger died during hiatus and was replaced by a fake Tiger who can't act. I think the same thing happened with Jan, but no one is 'fessing up. They decide that the only way to get through the scene is to nail a collar to the floor and strap the dog into it. Poor dog. Of course, I had to do the same thing to myself to get through recapping the show. The Voice tells us, "Tiger's untimely demise was a real Brady tragedy. The lookalike dog would have occasional cameos, but our dear dog pretty much disappeared without a trace."

It seems that Bob Reed is not the only one who has problems with the script; Susan Olsen decides to approach Sherwood to talk about her creative differences. "Sherwood, why does Cindy have to be so stupid?" "Oh, you think she's stupid?" "Yes, like, how could she forget her favorite sandwich is peanut butter?" Word. The girl is dumb. "Oh, I thought that was cute," says Sherwood in a lame defense. "Kids at school think she's a dumbo and I think so too. Why can't Cindy be cute, funny AND smart?" "Okay, Susan, I hear you, let me see what I can do." Then Bob comes up to whine some more, and Cindy steps into Tiger's doghouse to make out with Bobby. They don't actually kiss, but everyone thinks they do, so Jan and Marcia say they have to get married. I'm going to skip this part, because it is really really stupid, more or less NITB, and I have to have some sympathy for my brain cells. Let's just leave it at they "get married," and if you watch some Brady episodes you can see them making eyes at each other, okay?
