Love Boat: Season Three Volume One and Two
Review by Suzanne Lanoue
I watched this show in the 70's and well
into the 80's. It's the perfect kind of mindless television
that is fun and light, like marshmallow. You watch it and
then forget about it. Sometimes it's nice to watch
something just for fun.
There are three
things that made this show a success. #1, It's very
romantic, of course, like reading a romance novel.
Everyone ends up happy in the end. #2 It has beautiful
scenery. Whether they're cruising in the carribbean or
in Alaska or some other wonderful place, there are many
great shots, where they filmed on location. #3 It has
fabulous guest stars. You get a great mix of older film
actors and 70's TV actors. I love watching the episodes now
and seeing my favorites back when they were younger.
Love Boat does this more than most shows from back then
because there are so many guest stars.
Season 3, they were in their prime. You get all of the main
characters. The Captain's daughter, Vicki, joins the cast in
this season. If you love fun, romance, escapism, silly humor
and great guest stars, you should love this set.
The only disappointment is the lack of special featuers. On
the first volume, all they have are promos for the episodes.
On the second one, they do have the "Home & Family" reunion
from 2015, so that was cool to see.
Apparently season 2 came out in 2009. You'd think that in 8
years, they could have come up with some more cast
interviews or something. These people are all still alive!
They had a great
reunion photo in 2014.
Make sure you
check this set out. You won't be sorry!
