Stay ashore
17 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

The first of three (!) pilots for "The Love Boat." I don't remember ever seeing the second one, but I remember this one. It isn't really any better or any worse than the eventual series.

The set up is exactly the same: A diverse group of B and C list guest stars (e.g. Tom Bosley, Florence Henderson) have what the laugh track assures us are wacky escapades on a cruise to Acapulco. The only real difference here is the entirely different set of actors playing "Your Love Boat Crew." Australian Ted Hamilton is inert as "Your Captain" although second-billed Dick Van Patten is pretty good as "Your Ship's Doctor" (here named O'Neil). Gopher and Issac are here, although they're played by Sandy Helberg and Theodore Wilson (who gets more prominent billing here than Ted Lange got when he took over the part). In addition, the cast of would-be regulars included a steward and a pair of lounge lizards, none of whom made it to the series.

ABC tried two more times before settling on a cast they liked, but it was worth the effort, financially, if not artistically, as "The Love Boat" ran for the better part of a decade.
