    I had no idea that Hillary Swank was on Growing Pains. I still miss that show, even though I hate Kirk Cameron.

    • I had no idea either, although I never watched the show. I never really liked shows with kids or teens as the central characters – even when I was a kid! Yea, Kirk Cameron has gone off the deep end of religious extremism. Once the 1980’s ended, he just sort of tumbled into obscurity and is now trying desperately to remain relevant.
