What? They were acting like brats! It is totally called for.

Love you but I need to respectfully disagree with you on that one.

They made Alice cry! After all she did for them.

BRATS, BRATS, BRATS!!!

Anna was pretty much just being facetious! Just calling them brats in fun. Just kind of poking fun at an old beloved TV show!

And I was just doing the same, and I'm sure Wawwie is too! We are all Brady fans!

Jessica Fletcher was modestly attired so it was okay. But for practical reasons pants would be more in order whilst riding a bike.

I agree with that certain episode/instance. Never seen it but it was jerky to do that, yes.

I was being DEADLY SERIOUS!!! With a wink of facetiousness.

In that episode and the sculpture one they were being BRATS!!! They acted like Alice was their enemy not their constant ally and advocate and all around good buddy.

However in most of the episodes they were basically good kids who occasionally got swelled heads.

I agree with you completely. In that episode, they were total ungrateful, spoiled, ill mannered BRATS!!!

Happily they got their comeuppances, losing their allowances which they whined about on the stairs and having Carol chew the oldest two out after she was drinking her coffee, watching her shows and doing her customary knitting.

But Kay treated her so coldly, she was kind of rude to her actually when she invited her to watch television with her.

"I have my own TV at home."

Yikes!

Yeah, they were that too.

Why am I so mad at them still? It has been like 45 years already. I need to get over it already.

I wonder how they would have treated Hazel had she been their maid?



Or maybe it would take Nanny Fine to get them to shape up and show respect !!!

I think Greg and in later years Peter would have had a crush on her!!!

And I don't think Mrs. Brady would want a woman that looked like Nanny Fine around Mr. Brady and living at their house!!! Mr. Brady was a loyal non cheating Hubby, but men will be men and a hot live in Nanny might be a wee bit too tempting!!!

Did you know the actor who played Mr. Brady was on Mannix?

I never cared for The Nanny But it was mostly because it replaced All in the Family, and I loved that show since it was my first time watching it then. I might like The Nanny better now.
