 Growing Pains: Complete Second Season


  Review by Suzanne 4/18/11

I didn't watch this show back in the 1980's, but I have seen it many times in reruns and enjoyed it. I love that theme song! It gets stuck in my head. I was in college, or just finishing, when it aired. If I had been 5-10 years younger, I might have enjoyed watching Kirk Cameron's work more on the show. I know I watched the shows that aired before it "Who's the Boss", and after, "Moonlighting", so maybe I just didn't think it was funny enough, or maybe my husband insisted on getting one hour of TV for himself. I don't remember.

Anyway, it's a fun, cute show. It's definitely good for families and kids to watch. I do like Alan Thicke, and it's great to see how young he is in this. The Seavers seem like great parents that anyone would want to have. It's slightly more realistic than, say, The Brady Bunch, yet still the kind of family you want to be in.

A lot of the classic TV DVD's don't have any features or bonus materials, and this one is no exception. That's too bad. You do get 22 great episodes, though. Get ready to laugh!

More info:

We are excited about the upcoming DVD release of Growing Pains: The Complete Second Season!

Synopsis:'re fired. Mike (Kirk Cameron) receives a car from his pleased parents after he's named Employee of the Month. (So how's he going to tell them he's been canned?) Mike's not the only one with secrets. Brainy Carol (Tracey Gold) wants everyone to think she has a romantic extracurricular life with a hunky football hero. And what's up with 10-year-old Ben (Jeremy Miller) and those 67 calls to a sex line? (No, it's not what you might think.) These events don't all happen at the same time, but they do all happen at the same place: the Season 2 home-sweet-ho-ho-home of the Seavers - dad Jason (Alan Thicke), mom Maggie (Joanna Kerns), three on-the-grow kids. Jason works as a psychiatrist. You think maybe it's time to add some family appointments to his calendar?
