Call it corny, but at least this series...
16 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

having been made in the 80's (after "Love Boat") had some helpful and upbeat stories. (This was before reality trash, degradation and negativity dominated television).

Tony Franciosa and Debra Adair are a nice team, helping people to re-unite again, meet up as friends, or actually find their "lost love". This series at least gives the viewer a positive spin on life, some decent acting (by real actors, not reality publicity parasites) and an interesting theme.

Those who enjoy positive escapism will like this series as well as "Hotel" which was also popular in the 80's, and not as over the top as "Dynasty" or "Dallas". 8/10.
