WOW, Even Better Than I Thought,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Growing Pains: Season 1 (DVD)
Has it been over 20 years? Time flies. If you watched this show when it aired, then this is a MUST HAVE!
This was everything I imagined, and more. Seeing the un-aired pilot was awkward with the other young lady, and I can see why they changed. The show would not have been the success that it was without all of the cast they ended up with.
It was great seeing episodes I have not seen in years, and even better to see ones I have never seen. Although like anything older, it is dated in some ways, but it really brought me back to a great time in this country, and in television.
This had to be the tops for that time frame, and the length of it's run time proves it.
I liked the bloopers, but wanted more afterwards, there are not many. The campfire extra they throw in is nice as well. It's nice to see everyone as they are now. Although it a little was scary seeing Tracey Gold try to sing the theme along with everyone, she did not know the words? Imagine that! I know she's been through a lot, but she grew up on that show, those words should be as easy to repeat as her own name. It made me feel sorry for her, but I guess she's had her mind on more important things.
All in all, this was a welcome addition to my collection of DVD's, and probably my most respected. I cannot wait for the other seasons to come out, how long must we wait??
