    The first episode was a lot of fun. I look forward to the rest of the series and renovation. It’s in my wheelhouse and therefore it’s endlessly fascinating.

    Itís fun.

    But...

    A couple of gripes.

    They all trying to make perfection, trying to match fantasy and reality. From the exact color of the house. Trying to match the staircase. Dinning table. Front window, etc.

    But the front door? Complete mismatch. Different pattern, different color.

    Also, the entrance, living room, kitchen..thatís the iconic part of the house. Itís the pinnacle. The zenith. You just canít top that, period.

    Next episodes will not remotely rival the first episode. Master bedroom? Kids bedrooms? Attic placed on basement?

    Not the same impact...

    Eve is the Brady kid who seemed to have the most resentment over the shadow that role cast over her career.

    Eve Plumb is arguable the best actress of the bunch...her later acting roles reflect that...

    Well, bothered is too strong of word. Let's say "noticed." I realize its absolutely impossible to recreate the place exactly. I'm quite impressed with how close they did come.

    They used smooth colored plastic to replace, but the original had that textured surface so popular in the 60's and 70's. I guess I was disappointed because the textured versions that served as room dividers or highlights in other furniture just ooze 70's. We had them in the little sliding doors of our Spanish style dark wood coffee table and matching wrought metal lamps.

    WANTED - Solid-Boxed WGSH's, C.8 or better.

    With the second episode, it just got better. I’m truly enjoying it and am happy to know that this is the fate of the home. A fan of the show couldn’t hope for any better, I think.

    Watched the first couple eps last night. One thing that I never heard an explanation of.. HOW was that house originally chosen as the house to use for exterior shots? There seemed to be no connection between the family that owned it (the same family owned it all these years, right?) and the show producers. Did the show just randomly choose it and then ask the familiar for permission? Or did they not even have to ask?

    Just curious.
