Fans of "The Brady Bunch" sensed something was amiss when cousin Oliver came to visit. Likewise, viewers thought it a little odd when a new John Boy returned to Walton's Mountain and nobody noticed. These are classic "jump the shark" moments -- usually Hail Mary passes thrown by TV writers and producers to spike flat-lining Nielsen's.
