The Seavers Return

Just so you know, tomorrow night marks the return of the Seavers. That’s right, the cast of Growing Pains (which includes the annoying little girl added in the later seasons but does not include Leonardo DiCaprio) return to the ABC Family channel for a TV movie where the elder Seavers are planning on moving out of their house, but when the kids return, they don’t want to let it go. Carol’s pregnant and Chrissie wants to be a “rock star” (ugh). Joanna Kerns directs.

Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me. And besides the staleness of the plot, there are two major things working against it: 1.) it’s shot on film (who wouldn’t rather see a style shot in the standard three-camera sitcom style?) and 2.) it has a soundtrack (goofy music in place of a studio audience? no thanks…).

Still, I’ll end up watching it, even though I fear it’s going to be as bad as this.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
