The New Love Boat is the third TV movie and the pilot episode of one of the long-running TV show,The Love Boat.

In it,the series' cast and characters are changed and established.We finally have Gavin McLeod as Capt. Stubing, Bernie Kopell as Doc, Fred Grandy as Gopher, Ted Lange as Isaac and Lauren Tewes as Julie.The guest stars includes Georgia Engel,Gary Frank,Melanie Mayron,Stella Stevens,Pat Harrington, Audra Lindley and Phil Silvers.

The multiple comic and romantic plot lines include a stowaway,a pair of honeymooners,a married couple that are constantly arguing and a middle-aged lady together with a widower who are all passengers in the cruise.

Definitely,the cast have great chemistry.They made their characters lovable and admirable aside from being funny that made millions of American viewers love the show for many seasons to come.Also,the plot lines involving the passengers elicited lots of laughter for many years as well.Finally,the many stars who appeared in the show fueled its existence in the years to come.Although this episode may not be best,the viewer was definitely seeing something special watching this pilot episode/TV movie.
