Did You Know?


The characters of the grandmother and grandson share the last name of Pickrel, but that isn't possible based on the story that she shares. She explains that her daughter met a man in Brooklyn and that's how they moved from Britain to the States. Therefore, her grandson would have the same last name as his father. See more »

Romance blossoms on the high who brought the laugh-track?
14 September 2014 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

"The Love Boat" was one of those less-said-the-better TV shows from the 1970s; a breeding ground for both over-the-hill celebrities and TV newcomers, it represents the nadir of the Aaron Spelling era, full of pixie-cute retorts both on the Pacific Princess and off (courtesy the 20th Century-Fox studios on Pico Blvd., not quite the ritzy port a vacation-starved viewer might hope for). After two made-for-TV movies that served as pilots, "The Love Boat" was quickly turned into an hour-long weekly series that gave work to many currently-unemployed actors and new faces (and Spelling staples such as Kristy McNichol, who had just appeared in pilot #2, as well as nearly every other Aaron Spelling show then in production). The guest cast for this episode is mostly underwhelming: McNichol is so natural in front of the camera (naturally 'ordinary') that she runs the risk of fading into the background; she hadn't yet developed a personality to play off of, and it's easy to forget she's even around (plus, she's saddled with Scott Baio as her pubescent amour). Robert Reed and Loretta Swit don't embarrass themselves as bickering ex-marrieds who end up on the same cruise with their new sweethearts, and Swit gets to do a few seconds of real acting near the finish, but the sniggering laugh track throws all credibility right out the porthole--this and the fact the main players (Gavin MacLeod as the captain, Lauren Tewes as the twinkling cruise director, et al.) never get a chance to create honest characterizations (they pop up like human punchlines). TV-junkies, interested in seeing stars from different shows interacting for the first time (the "Brady Bunch" dad having a quickie with 'Hot Lips' from "MASH"), may find this appealing--the show can provide a quick, nostalgic pick-me-up on a dull afternoon--but the forced gaiety is often gruesome.
