    I've never actually seen an episode of Growing Pains so I have no real cultural reference point for Alan Thicke beyond the IRS audit help commercials he did.

    Diff'rent Strokes theme song?
    Facts of Life theme song?
    Both Alan Thicke.

    Never could figure out why he did those IRS help commercials. As a Canadian, he thought the US IRS was all fucked up?

    Every awards show this year will be twelve hours long because the deceased actor and actress montage will never end.

    I honestly don't know either of them of the top of my head, that's a whole generation of television that I have next to 0 exposure to.

    Huh, well as soon as I heard the Diff'rent Strokes theme I recognized that I had heard it before.

    But the Facts of Life theme is totally foreign to me.

    Like, I know you're just saying "Nice" out of a pavlovian reaction to the number 69, but could you at least pretend you're more than a trained ape, please?

    Could you edit your OP to make it seem like you're at least aware that somebody died, please?

    The initial "joke" within the first post, and subsequent posts afterward, seem incredibly tasteless.

    Some folks just lost a father, a husband and a friend.

    And he was definitely THE sitcom father I grew up watching. It ain't Bob Saget or James Avery, it is absolutely Alan Thicke.

    But I don't think Dr. Jason Roland Seaver would want us getting all sad or angry.

    So let's mourn Alabn Thicke by remembering that he had sex with his wife while listening to his son's music and would repeatedly tell a horrified Robin Thicke about it.

    Hey, I'm genuinely sorry if I offended people. In hindsight jumping on a dumb joke was tasteless and my attempt at levity was misguided at best.

    Hah, holy shit. I had never heard that before, but you're right.

    Alan Thicke, that is embarrassing dad humor on a Game of Thrones level of familial dickishness. I salute you for a life well lived, and for that fucked up power play. Godspeed.

    I have to admit, I actually didn't understand what the joke was - I'm a old dad myself now though so sometimes jokes need explaining :)

    He was pretty great playing a drunk sleazeball on the new season of Fuller House. The layers of weirdness are pretty heavy as he spends most of the show hitting on the little sister of the guy who used to play his son.

    I miss the days of intelligent TV dads though. This era of bumbling, backwards thinking, brunt of all jokes dads really gets old.

    Eh, there's another few decades of dumbass dad sitcoms to get through before we pull about even with all the shows that used to have ditzy housewives in them.

    Just in case, Alan is fine. Was a hoax and TMZ ran with the news without verifying.

    No, he did pass, but the story about him joking with his kid on the stretcher as he was being taken away was false.
