He's the man! I'm not watching unless they bring Boner back on. Growing pains was a delightfully amusing yet intensely realistic sitcom based around a late-80s, early 90s suburban family. They had their laughs, they had their tears, but most of all, they had each other. Boner was Mike Seaver's not-too-swift but oh-so-amusing best friend. Boner was the Danny DeVito to Mike's Arnold Schwarzenegger; shorter, stupider, uglier, but quite adorable in his own special way. A Growing Pains reunion would without Boner would be like a having your family reunion without your blabbering retarded uncle; it'd be nice to see everyone, but that special something would be missing. Please bring back Boner. Do it for the fans. Do it for future. Do it for the love.
