The Brady Bunch
The show aired more than 40 years ago!
American Idol is a great example of what can happen if you aren't honest with your children, and you send them out onto the stage, to fail. My kids are terrible singers. I am a terrible singer. They won't be one of those show contestants who are so painfully awful but are convinced they are the next Kelly Clarkson because their mom said so.
I love shows like The Brady Bunch and Gilligan's Island that suspend my (dis)belief; it's the shows that seem all too real that I find hard to watch. Teen Mom and Jersey Shore folks; Beverly Hills Housewives and Bachelors being paid to look for love... they're all pretty disturbing.
