No Brady Bunch on the island?

How will the children ever learn how to escape from a ghosttown jail or avoid surfing with evil tiki necklasses :P?

I thought it was very telling that they don't watch tv -- yet they used the Red Sox game as part of manipulating Jack... so they just randomly tape/record some stuff???? 

Well, and Carl's age... remember the Brady's were for us 40+ crowd... I'm surprised Sawyer used a Brady reference... maybe he watches tvland... isn't he suppose to be in his 30's... even he's a bit young for a Brady reference

Age is pretty much irrelevant to whether you are familiar with the Brady Bunch. I'm 34 and I watched every episode (in syndication) in the 70's, and my wife also knows all the episodes and she's only 28. I wish this wasn't true but it is.

Most teenagers today don't know about Brady bunch... that's all I meant to say... and soon Brady bunch will be as forgotten (not really it's pretty much become an American icon) as Father Knows Best... for those of us that really want to show their age...  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Yes, or every other line Sawyer makes. He's the in-joke for all us Gen-Xers in the audience. The funniest line in all of Lost? "Well, you're the one who fell for the old wookiee-prisoner gag!"

Same here on all fronts.  Even my daughter knows the Brady Bunch.  Just shows the kids only entertainment is the brainwashing room ;)

I think it shows that only certain people have access to all the info... There's obviusly a hierarchy within the Others. Carl was obviously on the outs so no Brady Bunch for him  ;D and I'd say he probably doesn't know all the details of Jack's past like Ben does.

Although I'm wondering what the deal was with the people watching Jack in the cage? It seems like maybe they watch the hatch cameras instead of the Brady Bunch or baseball games. I mean there's been a couple of times that the Others have asked about how so-and-so lostie is doing. So maybe that's what they're doing in their free time besides the book-clubs  :)

My first thought when he called him Bobby was Bobby Ewing from Dallas. Oh well.

it seemed consistent with the cult-ish behavior that we've seen thus far.  They are only allowing the children to be exposed to certain types of entertainment (if any)-  starving them from the rest of society, so they can feed them only doctrine that supports their way of thinking.
