Just the Ten of Us

Show Summary

It all began on April 20, 1988, during an episode of Growing Pains entitled "How the West Was Won". When Mike Seaver's favorite teacher, Coach Lubbock, loses his job, Mike and Boner discover that the coach has nine mouths to support. So what happens? Coach Lubbock uproots his family and moves them to Eureka, California, where he becomes the coach at St Augustine's Academy, a Catholic school. The twist? It's an all-boys school, and he has five daughters to enroll. Sexcapades abound, but a lesson is always learned. The Lubbock clan included Graham's wife, Elizabeth, a Catholic woman with a lot of faith and values; J.R, a pre-teen delinquent who delighted in watching scary movies and terrorizing his sisters; Sherrie, the resident pre-teen brainiac; and toddlers Harvey and Melissa. The main focal point of the series were the beautiful Lubbock Babes: repressed and nun-like Marie, the eldest child; loopy Cindy, the space-cadet; Wendy, the flirtatious daughter with the blond tresses; and Connie, the "literary" one. During the second season, the four teen daughters formed the singing group "The Lubbock Babes," and began headlining at a local eatery. Also seen were Graham's boss, Father Hargis, the self-centered & absent-minded head of the school; Sister Ethel, the scatterbrained little old nun; Duane Johnson, the head of the athletics department; and Gavin Doosler, St. Auggie's resident doof who fauned over the Lubbock Babes. Over the course of the show's run, half of the minor guest stars returned as different characters. Although the series was not considered very successful, it seems to be well remembered and loved. A lot of people remember it because after it got canceled, USA picked up the rights and aired reruns daily for six years.

  • Pretty fun

    7.0
    This show contained the same hammy acting that could be found on "Growing Pains", but it was still pretty fun. Every kid wondered what it would be like to have a really large family and this show played into that fantasy. Brooke Theiss and Jamie Lunar both turned up in Aaron Spelling shows later -- Theiss on 90210 and Lunar on Melrose Place.
  • Lightweight but enjoyable.

    7.0
    This Growing Pains spin-off only lasted a little more than two seasons but it managed to leave a few good laughs behind before biting the dust. The show was well-cast even if the scripts were lightweight and nobody can deny that Brooke Theiss, Jamie Luner, and Heather Langenkamp didn't make excellent eye candy. Reruns of Just the Ten of Us still pop up occasionally on the USA Network and I'll still tune in when I get the chance. Take special note of the performance of Deborah Harmon as mother Elizabeth Lubbock. Harmon did excellent work although she hasn't appeared in very much since the show went off the air.moreless
  • Nice TGIF show

    8.0
    This show fit in perfectly with ABC's TGIF line-up. After it was cancelled, I don't think ABC ever found another show that fit it on TGIF like this one did. It wasn't rocket science but it wasn't meant to be. It was a great companion show to Full House, Family Matters and Perfect Strangers. The best line-up TGIF ever had!
