Forever Young: Andy Griffith

The only memory I have of Andy Griffith as a child was Nick at Nite, and being kind of disappointed that cartoons weren’t on. But kids are idiots, and this show was awesome.

Rest in Peace Andy!

Forever Young: The Brady Bunch

Would it be Sunday morning without the Brady Bunch?

I haven’t seen this show since Nick at Nite in the 90s. It’s a historical culture shock. First, there are like NO people around. Can you imagine being in the butcher store (if people went to a butcher store instead of the Target meat section) and there are no people around? Except in Brady Bunch world that’s just a pleasant Tuesday instead of a depressing, rundown depression/recession era “lack” of consumers. There are so many people in this country, I don’t think we could EVER have a lack of consumers.

In one episode, Bobby Brady didn’t study and he did bad on a test. Instead of being angry at the teachers, Carol and Mike Brady tell him he should have studied more and it’s his fault he didn’t do well on the test. Why this makes me do a double take shocks me. Nowadays shitty parents blame everything on everyone else except their shitty kid. I think the explanation is crazy, indulgent parenting.

Anyways, the outfits are cool, the customs seem super bizarre and there’s like one black person a season on the show. Tripppppppppy.
