Growing Pains Appreciation #13 - Baby, rain or shine, all the time

Growing Pains Appreciation Thread


Summary
The show's premise is based around the fictional Seaver family, who reside on Long Island, New York. Dr. Jason Seaver (Alan Thicke), a psychiatrist, works from home because his wife, Maggie Malone (Joanna Kerns), has gone back to work as a reporter. Jason has to take care of the kids: troublemaker Mike (Kirk Cameron), honors student Carol (Tracey Gold), and rambunctious Ben (Jeremy Miller). From 1988 on, Chrissy Seaver became a part of the family. She was played in her infant stage by twins Kristen and Kelsey Dohring (who alternated in the role). Beginning in the fall of 1990, Chrissy's character's age was advanced to six years old, whereupon Ashley Johnson took over the role. The show was relevant in the mid-1980s, as women going to work was becoming more and more common, as were stay-at-home dads.

You suggested the title.

I like so many of the seasons. I guess except the last season. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't the best.

Yeah, the last season wasn't my favorite either but it was still enjoyable. There was just a vibe about it that was off. You had Leo added to the mix (not that I minded his character) and Tracey was gone for a lot of it.


Tracey Gold is 49 today.

And he left during that season. I'm glad he wasn't in the end.

Wow, Carol Seaver is almost 50!

Me too. I remember hearing that they had him exit before the last few episodes because they knew it was going to be ending and they just wanted it to be the family.
