This episode of HCTB originally aired on December 18, 1968. For those of you who have in no way noticed this delightful 60′s series, it was loosely based on the film Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. In this version, in order to maintain his mountain from falling into the hands of Aaron Stempel (Mark Lenard), Jason Bolt (Robert Brown) and his two brothers Joshua (David Soul) and Jeremy (Bobby Sherman) had to bring 100 eligible brides from Massachusetts to Seattle where they had to stay for a year. Whilst a premise such as this could have effortlessly turned out to be one thing silly, it turned out to be just the opposite, frequently tackling controversial problems along the way. However, it managed to remain extremely entertaining. The first season is offered on DVD and we’re patiently waiting for the release of the second season but I’m not confident it will ever see the light of day. Anyway, in keeping with the Christmas them, this is the Christmas episode from the initial season. Despite the fact that it is okay, I don’t believe it’s a true indicator of what the series was about.
It continues to baffle me why bubblegum music is ignored by oldies stations. It is as if they want to rewrite pop music history. This charted #9 on Billboard. That is not sufficient of a hit? Video Rating: four / 5
