The Brady Bunch : why do people consider this a 1970's tv show?

why do people consider this a 1970's tv show?

The show started in the 1960's, not the 1970's.

Now, there was a live-action Brady Bunch show that took place entirely in the 1970's, but most people want to discount that show completely.

Even though I liked it.



Re: why do people consider this a 1970's tv show?

Maybe because 89% of the episodes aired in the 1970's. (13 episodes out of 117)

I consider it to be a 70's show since most of the episodes aired in the 70's.

Re: why do people consider this a 1970's tv show?

Because the show was in the '60s for 3 months and in the '70s for over 4 years.

you want to get technical, the values were from 1955.

Oh God. Fortune vomits on my eiderdown once more.

Re: why do people consider this a 1970's tv show?

You have a point. Though it is synonymous with the 70s, it did start in the 60s and continued with the 60s feel. They were always watching cowboy movies, the cars were 60s style (till Greg's land yacht late in the series), the music coming out of the record player always sounded like Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, the colors and feel of the show were crisp and the same style as earlier 60s shows (as apposed to the 3 camera grainy brown depressing live audience stuff that appeared later in the 70s)......
And decades start on the '1's so we can buy them another 60s year for 1970 haha. We can leave it up their variety show a few years down the road to bring out the true horror of the 70s :0

The land yacht I was referring to was the 1974 Impala convertible Greg used in the driving test against Marsha (I at least thought it was his. Hadn't seen it in decades.) The 70-72 Plymouths still had the 60s or at least transitional look which is what I was going for in my previous post.

STUPID QUESTION.


Looks like more of a statement to me.

Re: why do people consider this a 1970's tv show?

Here's why I criticized the question.

It ran from 1969-1974.

It debuted at the very last year of the decade so it should be obvious.

Re: why do people consider this a 1970's tv show?

Agreed!

The show started in the last year of the 1960's. It ran from 1969-1974. So it WAS the seventies when season 1 ended. And it more likely started in the fall. So, there were only a few months of the 60's left.

Re: why do people consider this a 1970's tv show?

The 60s ended at the end of 1970. Decades start on the '1's.

Re: why do people consider this a 1970's tv show?

Most Of the episodes of season 1 where probably filmed in 1969 with the Pilot being filmed in 1968. The first season has the look of a 60's sitcom with Carol and the girls in short dresses, Carol's big helmet hair (wig), Mike and the boys tight high water pants and striped T-shirts, Mike's plaid sportcoats and loafers etc...even the theme song has that late 60's bubblegum pop sound.

It is considered more of a 70;s show because the majority of episodes aired in the 70's. The Brady's became the icon of tacky 70's fashion with bell bottoms, Carol's shag hair, Mike and the boys perms etc....

Mike's hair was naturally curly.
