*** And pretty much ''any'' scene with Mike being a fun, normal member of the family when in fact Kirk Cameron's newfound fundamentalist tendencies made him the kind of guy who'd do things like demanding that the actress playing his character's girlfriend be fired because she was once in {{Playboy}}, or denouncing the producers as "pornographers" for having pretty much your standard family sitcom level of occasional suggestive humor. ''Far'' from [[ThemeSong sharing the laughter and love]] with anyone by this point, he pretty much singlehandedly turned it into a TroubledProduction, and it's probably not a coincidence that the show was not around for very long after. Cameron's scenes take on a very different tone upon rewatch because of this.

*** And pretty much ''any'' scene with Mike being a fun, normal member of the family when in fact the actor's newfound fundie tendencies made him the kind of guy who'd do things like demanding that the actress playing his character's girlfriend be fired because she was once in {{Playboy}}, or denouncing the producers as "pornographers" for having pretty much your standard family sitcom level of occasional suggestive humor. ''Far'' from [[ThemeSong sharing the laughter and love]] with anyone by this point, he pretty much turned it into a TroubledProduction singlehandedly and it's probably not a coincidence that the show was not around for very long after.
