Did You Know?


When the Camden twin boys Sam and David were introduced to the show in the middle of season three the "7th Heaven" crew used quadruplets (Zachary Brino, Lorenzo Brino, Nikolas Brino, and Myrinda Brino) to play the twin babies as they rotated them around between scenes due to Child Labor Laws and the amount of time one set babies could be kept under lights and camera. But as the twin characters became older the producers decided on using one pair of the quadruplets, Lorenzo and Nikolas, especially since one of the quadruplets was a girl. Beginning from season six both boys had the roles permanently of Sam and David Camden and then appearing in the opening credits of the show. See more »

I hate this show. It's not entertaining at all. All the people do is complain about how hard their lives are and then in the end, everything is okay because, alas, they have each other. Puh-lease. It's like watching a stereotype on TV. I once watched an episode where a guy was talking to Lucy and she called him a "pimp." When Ruthie asked what a pimp was, Lucy replied that a pimp "is someone who hates women." about no. This whole show sucks. Plus, the dad cries in just about every episode. It gives me a headache just thinking about it. Ruthie is an annoying little brat who's so conceited, it's sick. Lucy is an obsessive, smart aleck, low grade cow. Matt is so naive, I don't think it's healthy. Simon is a pushy, try-too-hard jerk. Mary was so full of herself. The parents are totally clueless. I think it's pretty sad when the best actor on the show is the dog.
