Alan Thicke, one of Hollywood's most famous TV dads, stars in Unusually Thicke (2014), an original reality sitcom. Not even seven seasons as "Dr. Jason Seaver" on Growing Pains (1985) could prepare Alan Thicke to be the patriarch of his own real-life modern family. Between his beautiful, spicy and much-younger wife Tanya Callau, and his dry-witted, often opinionated teen son Carter Thicke, Alan has his work cut out for him - in a series that follows the daily drama and humor that happens in their everyday lives.
In Canada we really do love Alan Thicke, he is a great guy. Sometimes even funny. He has a beautiful wife and some really great boys too. His new reality show is suppose to be life in the Thicke home. However it's very much a scripted reality show. I guess there are some parts that are funny but watching the episode where Carter throws a party killed it for me. The "drunk guy" John was probably the worst actor I've seen. Not just at the party but the bus ride and the morning after. He made the show seem like a complete joke. Nothing funny about some weird guy that just shows up at a 16 year olds party and ends up sleeping in the backyard in his tighty whiteys. It was a terribly scripted show that cleared my decision on whether I would ever watch it again. Nope!!
