"It's comforting to revisit a time when Mother and Father still knew best." -- Grade: B
When Maggie Seaver takes a job as a journalist for the Long Island Herald, her husband, Dr. Jason Seaver, moves his psychiatric business home to keep an eye on their three problematic children: rebellious Mike (the role turned actor Kirck Cameron into a teen heartthrob), social misfit Carol, and the devious little Ben. The popular sitcom debuted in 1985 and followed the comic complications of the Seaver family as the children grew up and Jason and Maggie's careers took various twists and turns.
Description by Warner Home Video:
Growing Pains: The Complete First Season
Meet the Seavers in this hilariously successful late eighties sit-com about a family of five living out on Long Island. Maggie has recently rejoined the workforce as a journalist, leaving Jason, a psychiatrist, to juggle his responsibilities to his patients and his three kids by working from home. Mike's the oldest and possibly the most difficult to handle! Whether it's for girls, dirt bikes or The Boss, Mike uses his charming smile to finagle his way into trouble. The youngest, Ben, tries to tag along with his big brother learning to be a little con-artist in his own right. And amid the chaos, Carol, the middle child, tries to keep her head on straight and maintain her straight-A status at school. Join the Seavers as they experience the growing pains of family life, including a few disputes sprinkled in among lots of love and laughter.
