A year (at least) older, the Bradys return to continue learning about life--and each other. Twenty three episodes in this season (1970-1971) actually do a good job of showing that even the 'bunch' is not perfect.
Greg searches for himself this season. First he gets an office boy job at Mike's office in "Call me Irresponsible", but quickly looses the plans for a very important project. In "Where there is smoke" Greg is caught smoking nicotine cigarettes with his friends; this episode probably has more punch with today's numerous anti-youth smoking initiatives than it did in an era when advertising restrictions were much less lax.
Finally, in "Our son, the man" Greg decides that he needs his own 'crash pad' and moves into Mike's den. He also decides that he will start calling his parents by their first names, but this is not permanent change in the Brady universe. Greg ultimately moves back in with his brothers (at least for this season) and once again uses `mom and dad'.
Cindy and Jan also come into their own as characters during this season. Cindy deals with the bully Buddy Hinton, who makes fun of her speech ("A fistful of reasons") with Peter's assistance, and Bobby feels compelled to win his own merit ("The winner") to catch up with everybody else in this family. Nothing is as ever smooth as it had initially seemed in the Brady household.
"Will the real Jan Brady please stand up" has Jan buy an admittedly cheap wig in her own latest attempt to stand out from the more 'popular' members of the Bunch. She had previously invented George Glass for similar purposes in another episode ("The not-so-ugly-duckling").
This season continues telling the way they became the Brady Bunch with just the right amounts of sugar and spice mixed together. Keep the seasons coming.

So vertieft man Schulenglisch und hat auch noch Spass dabei. Die kurzen Episoden sind alle gewalt- und sexfrei. Alle Episoden kann man Kinder bedenkenlos alleine ansehen lassen. Die Aussprache der Schauspieler ist sehr gut verständlich und englische Untertitel dabei, falls man doch mal was nicht versteht. Die Stories sind meistens auch mit einer Lehre (Moral) verbunden. Klar, wenn 9 Personen unter einem Dach leben, dann geht es nicht immer ohne Konflikte ab, die aber eben auch immer gelöst werden und ein happy-end ergeben.
Unsere Tochter schaut die Serie immer wieder von vorne an, wenn sie einmal durch alle Staffeln durch ist. Deutsche TV Serien hingegen lehnt sie ab.
