The Love Boat 1977 | TV Show Watchlist


Love, `exciting and new,' kept this campy anthology series afloat for nine seasons. As passengers cruised on the Pacific Princess, tales of romance inevitably played out and intertwined, even involving the ship's crew. Producer Aaron Spelling called it `a show for people who couldn't afford a cruise.' Guest roles were sometimes filled by genuine legends like Lillian Gish, Helen Hayes and Olivia de Havilland mixing with more conventional TV types like Bill Bixby, Loni Anderson and Charo.
