Leo Dicaprio's Ultimate #1 Fan, 1 July 2006
Author: Nikki Hamby from United States

Great episode but not one of the best with Luke in it. it starts out with mike (kirk Cameron) and Luke (Leo) playing video games . then Jason walks in and gives Luke a postcard from his dad.then the theme song plays and they show some cute pictures of the cast members then later on Luke's dad comes back and asks Luke to come live with him for awhile Luke turns him down and on his way back to his car Luke's dad hurts his back toward the end of the episode Luke decides to leave with his dad.(this is the last growing pains episode with Luke in it.) they show a montage of clips with Luke in them. Then The shows over. too bad that show was great when Leo was on it , after this i didn't really watch any new episodes.
