#4 - Lola - 03/09/2007 - 17:40
I really would enjoy it if they would get season 2 of Growing Pains. After all my other favorite shows Full House and The Cosby Show already have season 2 out. I would love if it wouldcome out this summer..

We want more Growing Pains on DVD
I agree. C'mon Warners ..... bring out Season 2. Not everyone can download off AOL. In Australia it took forever for Season 1 to be released on dvd. Does anyone know why season 2 isn't out already? This is one of the best sitcoms of the 80's and the demand for Season 2 is HUGE!

#14 - B - 08/03/2008 - 21:27
How Long Must It Take!!!!
I will be really disappointed if Growing Pains Season 2 on so on is not release. It seems that a lot of the seasons - such as Step by Step are just releasing a series the "best of the best" - which only includes a few episodes from various season. I hoping this is not going to be the cast with Growing Pain - It was such a great 80's show!!

I got Season One of growing pains on DVD for my 19th birthday. It had just been released and I Begged for it that year. I will now be 22 in 19 days. I am so upset that I haven't seen season 2 on DVD. I used to record this show when it was airing as reruns on Disney Channel. I would record every one of them. WHERE IN THE WORLD is SEASON 2? PLEASE!!!!
#19 - Ashley - 01/29/2009 - 18:32
PLEASE RELEASE SEASON 2 OF GROWING PAINS ON DVD!
#20 - Sarah - 01/30/2009 - 10:50
Will season 2 ever be released?
Are they ever going to release season 2 on dvd. The show was really popular when it aired and they are releasing many seasons of other shows, Married with Children has 9 seasons out now and I think Growing Pains was just as popular. It is one of the best shows of the 80's and should be available to the fans. They also haven't released season 2 of Who's the Boss which is another 80's hit show! what's the hold up? Release season 2 already!!
#21 - Lisa - 02/04/2009 - 15:41
Come on, bring out seasons 2-7 already!!!!
Me and my wife are in our 30's, so we are huge fans of this show because we grew up in that era. We have season 1, and our kids love it too. It's a cool show, and not only season 2 should be released, but all 7 seasons should be released.

I can't figure out how to download them! Can I?
#23 - Sierra - 04/26/2009 - 15:57
my friend and I are arguing over the town that the Seaver family lived on the show, GROWING PAINS. I say it was Massapequa and he says Syosset..Can you please help.
#24 - slinky - 05/01/2009 - 20:51
Growing Pains house
Location is Warner Brothers in CA, because I took a tour. Exterior only as they only have one true home on the lot that they shoot indoor scenes for tv shows.
#25 - Kim - 08/01/2009 - 00:56
you need to bring this show back as well
#26 - jasmine - 08/07/2009 - 15:23
I am waiting for the growing pains seasons too---grrr I want to buy them all!!!
#27 - Holly - 08/18/2009 - 18:32
I grew up with this show. Why is it they even put out the first season of any show if they don't plan to put out the rest. It does no good to only have one season on DVD. What am I supposed to to watch season one over and over again. Please release the rest of the seasons.
#28 - Tina - 08/20/2009 - 21:36
Please release the rest of the seasons of Growing Pains
Please, please, please release the rest of the seasons.. it was my favorite show!!
#29 - Brandi - 10/03/2009 - 20:24

#31 - buduo - 11/29/2009 - 01:16
Like the many others who have commented above, I would love to have Season 2 of Growing Pains - actually would love to get entire season.
#32 - Gom - 12/23/2009 - 09:51
This is quite rediculous. This and Wonder Years were my favorite shows growing up. Where are the rest of the seasons and where is Wonder Years? Why is that they release crap like Cops? Who the hell would ever by COPS and who would ever watch an episode more than once? I just don't understand the logic here. Please release it so that we are not all downloading sh*tty quality illegal copies.
