#Quote
1 Would I want my kids to watch the show, or to have watched it if I had been a father back then? My own mother told me that parents in dysfunctional families would not have wanted to face the question, 'Why isn't our family like that?' But my own mother had given up on our family. I don't buy that it was wrong to watch The Brady Bunch (1969) because it was a fantasy. It can't do any kid any harm to watch it. Yeah, I'd let my kids watch it, and have a very difficult time figuring out what else they should watch.
2 "My own family was completely dysfunctional, so I know what the appeal of The Brady Bunch (1969) was. And when kids get older, in college, for example, and they realize that all their friends watched it, and you all have something in common. You can make fun of it, or say 'God that was great!' because it was so stupid and silly. Like the Batman (1966) series. But it's a known quantity, and you can gather around it. It becomes flypaper".
