Description

Sometimes life's lessons challenge you. Sometimes they give you a good belly laugh. This iconic '80s comedy series offers both! When Jason Seaver (Golden Globe nominee Alan Thicke) moves his psychiatry practice into the house so his wife, Maggie (Joanna Kerns), can return to the workforce as a journalist after 15 years as a housewife and stay-at-home mom to their three kids — charming but mischievous Mike (teenage heartthrob and Golden Globe nominee Kirk Cameron), brainy Carol (Tracey Gold) and Ben (Jeremy Miller), the youngest — Jason soon finds that managing a household is trickier than he thought. But for this upper-middle-class family on Long Island, life is often served with loads of love, a side of laughs and a dash of growing pains. Now, watch Growing Pains from the very beginning, and see why it was a hit for seven seasons and made household names of its stars. Recurring guest star Andrew Koenig appears as Mike's best friend, "Boner."
