    Okay show.

    By cactusjack39, Sep 02, 2009

    This was a show that was basically a show in which I watched if there wasn't anything else on the television set. I don't think it was at all bad, just kind of boring. I like most of the 90's shows, so this falls in that category. The best aspect of the show is the characters. They all seemed to blend in rather well, but I must say that they kind of got boring at times. Generally, I think that a show like this is rather bland at times, but compared to the shows today, Growing Pains is a decent show. Thank you.moreless

    Takes me back to the 80s!

    By JPPT1974, Aug 05, 2009

    The eighties were a great decade and that wished that we all can go back to that decade of youth. And decade where all innocence were there. It starred Canadian Alan Thicke as a father of three with Joanna Kearns as Maggie, his loving and understanding wife. Kirk Cameron as the fun-loving prankster son Mike, the oldest of the three. Tracey Gold as brainy Carol, who would leave in the end of the show to deal with her real-life anoxeria. And Jeremy Miller as equally prankster son Ben. The show brings back a lot of childhood and wished that we could have parents like that. As I grew up in a family of three. The youngest of an older sister and brother.moreless

    Growing Pains was about a family of five who lived on Long Island, New York. Jason Seaver, a psychiatrist, who had his practice at home. Maggie, his wife, was a journalist who worked for the Long Island newspaper and later got a job as the news anchor.

    I use to watch this show everyday pretty much or when it came on and I caught it on television. The series was about a family that went though everyday issues ans sometimes non-everyday issues. Anyway, this movie was good for the whole family to watch and I think it use to air on Disney Channel. I am glad I was able to watch this series. If anybody go looking for this series then all the luck to you. I can not wait until they air another old series because it might being it back on the television like some shows I heard about.moreless

    nice show for the family. totally 80s. Predecessor of Seventh Heaven.

    By TheAnonymous1, Apr 11, 2008

    Good show. Funny but more of if you wanna reminsice or be nostalgic about the 80s. This was in the prime or heart of the 80s. Very good show. Lots of lessons to be learned. Kirk Cameron (sister of Candace Cameron from Full House) was so hott. So was ben seaver! Carol was a nerd but she was smart and it got her far! The wife and dad were nice too but a bit strict but it's cool since that's how their lived in the 80s back then. Well, I've got nothing else to write, but it has to be 100 words long so...moreless

    A classic show!

    By PhoenixAngel37, Aug 23, 2007

    The Seavers are a modern family with everyday problems. I loved this show. It was always hilarous and a guilty pleasure in the 90's. Mike Seaver, the charming trouble maker, was the cutest boy toy at that time. Carol, the nerdy sister, was the character that I related to most. We both are the " middle child". It was always a blast. I enjoyed watching the show whenever it comes. I loved the series and furthermore, the movies. The movies were terrific and did not do any harm to the series. Overall, this show was great while it lasted. Great classic!! !!moreless

    This is the best show on Earth.

    By chovez, Mar 10, 2007

    Terrific program! Ahhhhhhhhh! I´m gona die if you keep trashing it! What´s wrong with you people?! It´s really underrated, having an avg. score of 8.6?! And it keeps decreasing!!! At least 9.0, the minimum. It is better than ANY show. I´m really dissapointed of you Americans. All my family loved it.

    It was amazing, of the best to ever happen on TV. It was a unique show with a great humor. And also the funniest sitcom. Anyways, it was so funny and cleverly made. Jason Seaver, being the father was the most important character on the show. He was psychiatric, who works in home. He was vey funny and a great father.

    There´s also Maggie Seaver, the mom. She was a good mother, you know the usual role of a mother.

    Mike Seaver, who takes all the credits of the show. Kirk Cameron. Well, he was the funniest. With a Great personality.

    Carol Seaver, the smart of the family. She was very funny, and kinda nerd.

    Benjamin Seaver, he started with the role of a silly little brother, like Mike at his ages. Also there was other characters.

    Growing pains was a masterpiece. I´m still not getting enough of this.

    It develops with a long from 1985-1992. Eight years in the life of the Seavers. They grew, all the characters got older, and dealt with life. The adolescence, the childhood, and the way to beacame to the adult age.

    Think whatever you want rare people, I think this.

    What an excellent show is GROWING PAINS!moreless

    This show is a Classic!

    By carly767, Feb 18, 2007

    Growing Pains is a 80's show but now people watch the reruns and they still love the show. I watch the show on I and on Nick at Nite and I just have to say I love the show and I have the First season on dvd. All kinds of people can relate to the show i think thats why Dramas/Comedy's last so long all kinds of people relate, teens, adults, young adults, elders, It's still an awesome show and they ended it about 15 years ago and i havent lived that long yet. hahaha! sorry anyway, i love growing painsmoreless

    What a great show!!

    By GPFAN01, Feb 17, 2007

    This is a very funny show. The characters were really good for their parts. Everything is really good. Every episode managed to get a laugh out of someone, while focusing on a different subject everytime. Some subjects are more serious than others, but it was still a great show! It is definitely a clean, funny show, that should be brought back. They have already made 2 great reunion movies. It is a show that you could look forward to watching with everyone. Though, it still airs in reruns, it should be brought back with new storylines. It is a show that is and always be really funny!!moreless

    A family with 2 parents and 3 kids goes through the trials and tribulations of life with laughs along the way.

    By mjfan13, Feb 15, 2007

    I loved this show when I started watching it when it was on nick at nite a long time ago and I love it even more now. I am so happy that growing pains is back on television. I adore this show and all the characters. It makes me laugh and it can make me cry. The theme song is awesome. I sing to it every time it comes on and then I listen to it about 3 more times on the internet. Mike is so funny, carol is smart and has an endearing quality to her, and Ben is the funny little brother. I love this show.moreless
