The Partridge Family didn't have near the interesting home as The Brady's, but then their dad wasn't an architect. Plus, they didn't have the money like the Brady's either - no stay-at-home-mom or live-in-maid. It was more of an average home, and perhaps that's what got me to take another look at the Partridge abode.
Because the house didn't have the size or flair of the Brady residence, the scenes nearly always took place in either the kitchen or the living room (in front of the stairs). Sometimes, the camera would venture into the boys' crummy little upstairs room or Mom's elegant boudoir, but it wasn't common.
Of course, this is typical of any sitcom, whether it's Married with Children or All in the Family, there's just one or two main settings and that's it. So, what makes the Partridge residence of San Pueblo so interesting? The decor, of course.
Lord knows there's a lot of attention put on nude scenes, but I thought it might be interesting to take a different perspective. In this post, we'll look at the words from the actresses themselves - their own opinions and experiences doing them in cult movies. For whatever reason, I found this rather interesting - and I hope you do as well.
The Professor and Gilligan name their top three game shows before diving into the 1983 film, DC Cab. They'll discuss the many instances of air humping in the film as well as the very subtle and nuanced performance by Gary Busey.

Wonder Woman, Season 1, Episode 5
Title: "The Feminum Mystique Part II"
I highly recommend you reread the previous episode as this is the second part and things may get confusing. Instead of giving you a rehash of events in Part I, I'll link to it instead.
In this episode, the Nazis land on Paradise Island.... and Nurse Karen from Halloween II thinks they're cute. Enslaved Amazons, big hunks of Feminum, and Drusilla cleavage... what more could you ask for? Let's go!
From the pages of My Romance magazine (Feb 1959) comes "High School Bad Girl". In this exciting story of innocence lost and regained we learn (1) getting drunk with a guy named Zip in a dirty boat house is probably a bad idea, (2) skinny dipping is the worst thing a human being can do short of mass murder, and (3) most importantly, don't ever - EVER - drink Papa's whiskey.
We'll finish off season four in this post. We'll cover the episodes where Marcia gets whacked by a football, falls hopelessly in love with a married man. But most of all, we'll cover the minis. So, sit back and enjoy part two of the comprehensive guide to Brady Bunch miniskirts. Onward ho!
Please take a look at an article I have written up on Anorak - a kick ass British online publication. The article is Top 5 Fashion Offenses of The 1970s - give it a "like" for your ole pal Gilligan and spread the Good Word.
You'll note that I'm writing under the name "Yeoman Lowbrow". Why? I have no freaking idea, other than I have trouble with pseudonyms. I'll try to provide a link to any future articles that pop up on Anorak. Enjoy!
