The Brady Bunch Staircase

When I was a kid I was absolutely fascinated with the Brady's staircase. I thought it was so cool. It was a secret fantasy of mine to someday live in a house exactly like theirs, staircase and all. It's interesting that on almost every sitcom, they had a 2-story house and their stairs had a landing: Bewitched, The Brady Bunch, The Partridge Family, Donna Reed, Leave It To Beaver, Roseanne, All In The Family, The Cosby Show, Different Strokes, The Beverly Hillbillies, etc. It's also interesting that on every show during it's entire run, the interiors never change. Walls never get re-painted, new pictures never get hung, the furniture never gets re-arranged, no new appliances, the TV always stays in the same place (sure, Carol and Mike re-wallpapered their bedroom but the story line required it. After all, how else was Alice going to be able to "accidentally" step in a tray of wallpaper paste????).
