Way back when I was in high school,I used to watch this show which came on Wednesday nights at the 8:00 hour on ABC-TV. By the way,it was very funny show........
Alan Thicke maybe the star,but it was Kirk Cameron that ran the show. It was Cameron's portrayal on girl crazy always in something-teenthrob Mike Seaver,that kept the show going for seven seasons and also kept it in the top ten during its initial run. He and younger brother Ben were always in some kind of mischief along with kid sister Carol and
(played by Tracey Gold,who was the sister of Benson's Missy Gold) their parents who were too overboard in their acting,especially actress Joanna Kerns. Thicke was okay,but he got stale during the last few seasons of the show. However,it was nice to see Mike grow from high school to college and to see the rest of them mature as well. However,when the show went off the air in 1992,it faced competition with its rival Family Matters and Full House. Maybe if Growing Pains opened new ground it may have been more successful instead of overrated it and sugarcoating some of the material. In all,Great Show! Catch the re-runs on the Disney Channel.
