Another family sitcom of the 80's that wasn't exactly Emmy-worthy, but still highly entertaining. Switching gears with the man of the house now working within the house, Growing Pains was an updated Father Knows Best, dealing with heavier issues than the Andersens could've ever imagined. As with several family comedies, things got stale midway through its run, a new baby came long and not long after, a future movie megastar. I still can't believe they got away with naming a character Boner.

Location: The Maui Hotel
Address: 5400 Makena Alanui, Wailea-Makena, HI
Originally known as the Maui Prince Hotel and up until July 1, 2016 the Makena Beach & Golf Resort. The resort closed after 30 years in operation a mere two weeks before I arrived on Maui. Luckily most of the shots were exteriors so I was still able to see where The Seavers Hawaiian escapades took place.
It was kinda creepy to see it so deserted...
Bobby pushes Hadley into the pool...
I couldn't tell if it was The Seavers or not...
The luau appears to have taken place at the outskirts of the property just before the beach...

Season 3, Episode 24 "How The West Was Won" Part 1
Location: Coach Lubbock's Apartment Building
Address: Warner Ranch, Burbank, CA
I recognized the building next to Coach Lubbock's Apartment Building that he parks in front of as Jane's Building from The Naked Gun 2 1/2 (1991). You catch a glimpse of the circular balcony in the upper right hand corder and the two windows. It looks like they added a section to the building since then. The Warner Ranch is not open to the public unfortunately but you can see it from the entrance on Hollywood Way...
