I was just on General Chit-Chat with my new best friend Jester1957 (from Nashville!) when the idea for an Episode-that-shoulda-been came to me,"Partridges Play Nashville", with Keith and Danny both getting crushes on Dolly Parton. I know, it sounds all too familiar, but I think it could have been WAY better than that Other Episode. It's Rich with possibilties, Keith tries his hand at Bull riding, Laurie up in arms about Cruelty to Livestock.

So, what are your fave Episode themes? I'm anxious to hear! Very Happy

How about The Partridge Family try to do a variety TV series, and wackiness ensues! Everything goes wrong and makes everyone look ridiculous, but somehow Rueben gets some screen time and is then offered a role on a sitcom!

BTW, Nashville!?? How about Branson!? Wink

Yeah? Yeah?? Well, imagine how rich they'd be right now, having gotten in on the ground floor! Sounds like Danny's business acumen at work to me! Just think, he coulda been Bobby frickin' Vinton by now! Whistle

They could have done an episode where they went skiing while they were performing at a ski lodge. Laurie could meet a handsome skiier while Keith and Danny try to pick up chicks by wearing fake casts pretending to have injured themselves going down Suicide Hill.

And Ruben could try his hand at ski jumping but he only ends up like the Agony of Defeat guy.

I had to retype some of this due to some overwrite problem which I can't seem to undo.

Laughing Laughing Laughing Your fake casts idea is freakin' BRILLIANT!!!! Applause Applause Applause Remember the Beatles skiing in the Alps in HELP? The PF paperback mysteries may have been crappy, but they did have alot more adventure than the PF series. I don't ever remember them being chased by Mad Scientists or Bloodthirsty Religious Zealots on the show.

your're right the books did things you never saw in the show. They were fun light reads though. I was happy that I found them all.

Wow! You found 'em All? I only have 2 these days, "Keith Partridge Master Spy" and the first one. The first one has some interracial flirting with Laurie and a Parking Attendent that was kind of daring at the time for a book like this. I remember "The Haunted Hall" and another one about a Prince that looked just like Danny.

At one point we thought it might be funny to have a list of PF books that had been rejected by the publisher, the Lost Partridge Mysteries. We thought up some Very unlikely titles and wrote a couple of paragraphs each, but we never got around to posting them on www.dpxrules.com

My favorite was "Reuben's 12 Steps to Danger", where Reuben goes to an AA meeting to help his drinking problem and unwittingly ends up thwarting a criminal plot.


You still haven't suggested an episode idea though KathySTL, got one?

the Partridge Family meet the Jackson Five. That would be a great concert.
Or, Tracy has a dream sequence, and the Partridge Family wakes up black. Whom would you have play each character?
I think-- Diana Ross as Laurie, Flip Wilson as Reuben, Dee from "What's Happening" as Tracy...any ideas?

Diana would have been too old to play Laurie. How about that hottie who played the teenage daughter on "Good Times"? Was her name Velma? Damn, she had a fine booty! Prince, of course, as Keith. Diane Carrol (spelt wrong I'm sure) as Shirley, or maybe Aretha. Prince and Aretha in the same band, Now we're Talkin'! Hey, here's an idea. The Bernie Mack Show has a Partridge Family episode where Bernie dreams that he and his family are suddenly the Partridges with him playing Keith's part. I think it would also be cool if the original cast was made up to look Black, sort of a reverse "White Chicks".

Dannyph, do you know how long ago that Bernie Mac episode was on? Which season? I'd like to keep an eye out for it in syndication. Smile
