The opening sequence is intended to portray the family's cross-country move from New York City to California. However, in the St. Louis shot, the camera is facing south with the Gateway Arch in the center. As the vehicle moves toward the camera, it pans left and reveals more of the Mississippi River...which clearly shows the family driving east of St. Louis, not west. See more »
Spun Off of Growing Pains and was perfect for Friday night!
God, I'm getting old because I can recall this show being shown on Friday nights on ABC when it was really family viewing. Of course, it spun off of Growing Pains which was superior but it still worked with Coach Lubbock and his over-sized family including the devoutly Catholic wife played wonderfully by Deborah Harmon. The kids were also wonderfully played by Heather Langenkamp who played the equally religious Marie. Jamie Luner played one of the twins and I forget Brooke's last name who played the other twin. They were the only girls in an all-boy Catholic school in Eureka, California. The show only lasted two seasons but I bet it could have thrived in syndication. It's a pity that we don't have family oriented shows anymore like this.
