Maybe Marsha's and Jan's personality had changed after attending college. The fashion world is known to be more "free spirited" than the architectural world, which is driven by "standardization and rules," which could explain how their personality had to change to fit their careers and the narrative flipped to match that. So I can understand that. It would make sense.

I watched the remaining three episodes. Some were so unbelievable like "The Siege" episode, with the FBI getting involved with Wally's parking tickets. Completely ridiculous. The writers were already getting into territory of writing material that you would see late in series run, where the writers would up with outrageous plots to keep people interested. "Cool Hand Phil" was not too bad, at least you got to see some dimensional aspects of Phil's character, which was refreshing. "A Pretty Boy is Like A Melody" was probably my favorite episode of the series. It was amusing seeing Phil and Wally dress up as models.

Overall, this series was a hit-and-miss. I don't think it was ever meant to be a series, but the networks got greedy, and wanted to turn it into one, and they ended up getting a show that was terrible. I think they could've done way better. It would have been nice to see more than Carol and Alice involved after the movie episodes. It's like the other characters didn't exist. I'm sure Robert Reed saw the episodes and thought some of the plots were bonkers and passed.

In theory the show could have had most of the other Bradys guest star is some capacity.

I read somewhere that Sherwood had an idea for a sitcom about two couples sharing a house but no network would but it. With Jan and Marcia he got his wish and a built in audience. I do think it was rushed into production and possibly that is why we got the scripts we did.
