Goofs

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 »

underrated show
10 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this spin off from Growing Pains, where the character of Coach Graham T. Lubbock from Dewey High School got his own show after the stupid principal Detwit fired him. Most of the episodes were pretty good and I did like the fact that some of the characters evolved a little bit, like Wendy near the end (the nature scout episode). Coach was also an all around teacher, teaching not only phys. ed, but regular classes and even directed plays for the school. Yes, he could be protective, but what father isn't? In fact, I think most parents today aren't like him. I'm glad to see some of the episodes on youtube, although I'd love to see the final season, that had some really great moments, like when the girls go to the Virgin Islands and the smoking episode. I'd love to see the show back in reruns on USA or somewhere. Maybe on DVD. Again, it is too bad they canceled this show since it was popular, but I guess sometimes decisions are made by network execs that we don't like.
