Default 50th Anniversary 2019

TBB started in 1969 so 2019 marks the 50th anniversary. The original house has been bought and is being gutted to recreate the house which I imagine will be done in time for the anniversary.

What I would like to see in 2019 as way of celebration is a release of the original show in HD on blu ray. As it was made on film, assuming the negatives are still being stored, it should look as good as those HD releases of original Star Trek and Lost in Space. Oh to see the show in HD; to see all the detail in the Brady house in HD...

I would also love to see them release The Brady Girls Get Married in its 2 hour format as well as the entire series of The Brady Brides on dvd. HD would be great but I am not greedy. It surprised me that they released The Brady Bunch Kids on dvd and surprises me more that this isn't on dvd.

They released one of the three hour long versions of The Bradys in the compete series boxset so come on, release all three two hour movies or all six hour long episodes on dvd as well.

The rest of The Brady Bunch Variety Hour would be great too!

Since the 50th I have started a re-watch of the series. Some observations; a patio scene in Ennie, Mennie and a patio scene in Alice Doesn't Live Here were filmed at the same time as they use the same camera angles and the furniture is all in the same places on the patio with the same kids books spread out. Alice Doesn't Live Here gives us Alices' bedroom and Katchoo shows us the original laundry room. The view from Alices bedroom door shows nicely how it links to the utility room and how later to probably speed things up that they just erected a flat wall outside her room.

In fact, lots of the early episodes show us angles where fourth walls have been placed correctly giving the true layout of rooms.

There is a Brady 50th anniversary DVD out now which includes almost every Brady-related series except for the variety hour. I'm not sure you'll ever find "The Brady Girls Get Married" in 2-hour form, since NBC split it into the first 4 episodes of THE BRADY BRIDES. The movie may have been recut into a 2-hour format later for syndication, but that's not how it was originally aired.

I did. It is on the 50th dvd set.

When Wally and Marcia are in the canteen and Marcia goes to pay for the meals, there are a couple of extra lines in the sitcom version however, the sitcom version then cuts out about 1-2 minutes of action with Jan and Phillip and starts from Phillip producing a list of songs.

After Carol finishes her telephone conversation with Peter about him not being able to make it to the wedding, Alice and Carol have a couple of extra lines in the sitcom version. The sitcom version, like the TVM cuts to the restuarant but the TVM has extra scenes in that it starts with Wally and Marcia lone together before Jan and Phillip join them. On the sitcome version the scene starts from the girls talking over each other. A cut towards the middle of the
restuarant scene also occurs in the sitcom version with perhaps 30-60 seconds cut.

The TVM has extra lines between Alice and Carol after Carol mentions putting Gilbert and Sullivan back together again.

At 1hr 6mins and 40 seconds there is some tape damage visible on screen so these prints came from a video tape and were not remastered.

In the TVM Phillip is walked into the house blindfolded. In the sitcom version this scene starts from Philip saying he hates the idea of them all living together.

In the TVM Marcia has a scene with the movers, followed by a scene with Jan and the movers. The Jan scene is not on the sitcom version.

EDIT - And of course part of Carol singing is cut from the dvd but is in the sitcom version and no doubt is in the TVM version but just not this version because of the rights no doubt.

Just watched Sorry, Right Number. Some random observations.

Jan gives advice to a friend about removing freckles. Something she will soon want advice about herself.

At 8 minutes into the episode Marcia wears a dress that Jan will wear at the end of The Not So Ugly Duckling.

We get to see the curtains in Mikes Den in an open position. The view looks like the view from the first floor with the garage to the left.

I think this is the first appearance of Sam the Butcher.

The picture quality has been better than I remembered on the dvds though in this episode there are many shots that are quite poor.

Almost at the end of season 1. Some observations. Your see the fourth wall quite a bit in this season. There are close ups in the boys room where the directors have taken the time to wheel in the fourth wall. We see this a few times with the living room as well and even some shots showing the patios doors from within the house looking out.

On the HGTV show one of the presenters said you never saw the fourth wall in Mikes den. She was wrong. Even I knew that to be false. You see it in Father of the Year and also in close up during a later episode.

Quite a few scenes with Mike and Carol take place in the family room during season one. The cast often said this was their favourite set but I never cared for the look of the den that much. I really didn't like the wood pannelling much.

I just ordered the 50th anniversary DVD and I really hope there is no cuts on it.
