Product Description

Fred Grandy, Bernie Kopell, Gavin MacLeod. Cruising into its second season (with its unmistakable theme song, as performed by Jack Jones), this Aaron Spelling-produced series mixed comedy and romance aboard a number of smooth-sailing cruise ships. Come along for 12 episodes on 4 DVDs. 1978-79/color/11 hrs., 52 min/NR/fullscreen.

Sealed with a kitsch, The Love Boat cruised into its second season as one of television's top 20 shows and guiltiest of pleasures. Leaving uncharted waters to edgier shows of the day, The Love Boat was pure escapist entertainment. Each of these 13 episodes steers a tried and true course through three stories; one involving the crew members, another played for laughs, and the other more dramatic, but with a reassuring finish that allowed everyone to disembark with hope of a happy-ever-after. Each episode, too, is a minor miracle of casting with a star-studded roster ranging from seasoned Hollywood veterans to fresh faces just finding their sea legs. Vincent Price is featured in a Halloween episode as the Amazing Alonzo, who almost makes his fiancée (Joan Blondell) disappear for real when he keeps their engagement a secret from admiring female passengers. June Allyson stars as a woman losing her eyesight, with Van Johnson as her over-protective husband. Robert Reed is a man who witnessed a shooting but is afraid to testify, with Toni Tennille as a woman with a personal stake in the case. And Jill Whelan is introduced as Vicki, the young daughter of Capt. Stubing's lost love. On the lighter side, we have Billy Crystal as a shy young man by day, masked kissing bandit by night, Soupy Sales and Jo Anne Worley, as a buttoned-up boss and his adoring secretary who awaken after a drunken party in the honeymoon suite, and John Astin as a hermit who maroons Captain Stubing (Gavin McLeod) and company on his deserted island. The Love Boat isn't Shakespeare, but the writers must have brushed up on classic films to pay homage to the Marx Brothers' A Night at the Opera stateroom scene (ship's engineer Larry Storch's large Italian family is smuggled aboard so he can celebrate Thanksgiving with him) and Ninotchka (Loretta Switt stars as a humorless Russian who gets an extreme makeover). In these tumultuous times, The Love Boat remains the quintessential "Stop the World" series that allows viewers too forget their troubles. So when goofball Gopher (Fred Grandy) dons women's clothing to protect cruise director Julie (Lauren Tewes) from an overeager passenger (Red Buttons), your blissful smile is The Love Boat's "sweetest reward." --Donald Liebenson

The first thirteen episodes from the second season of THE LOVE BOAT. Welcome back aboard the Pacific Princess, where lovely cruise director Julie McCoy (Lauren Tewes), Captain Stubing (Gavin MacLeod), Dr. Adam Bricker (Bernie Kopell), Purser "Gopher" Smith (Fred Grandy), and lively barman Isaac Washington (Ted Lange) will ensure that all your entertainment needs are met.

The second season gets off to a strong start in a movie-length opener, "Marooned / The Search / Isaac's Holiday", where several passengers are taken hostage by an eccentric old hermit (played by John Astin) during a day-stop. Isaac attempts to impress guest star Lola Falana by passing himself off as a millionaire; and a young woman is reunited with her estranged birth mother. Guests for this special story include Edie Adams, David Birney, Audra Lindley, Laraine Day and Donna Mills.

Co-producer Douglas Cramer always maintained that the secret to THE LOVE BOAT's success was it's careful, constant mix of the three storylines - namely, a farce, a romantic comedy, and a "warmedy" (Cramer's term, not mine). Surely, a lot of the audience appeal was the roster of guest stars - a fun combination of Hollywood greats, has-beens and five-minute-wonders. One of the more offbeat episodes included in this collection is "Ship of Ghouls", a special Halloween show, which has Iris Adrian, Joan Blondell, Vincent Price and Jane Kean, mixing it with Gary Collins and Mary Ann Mobley.

Throw on your finest Nolan Miller fashions and join the gang on the Fiesta Deck! The Pacific Princess will be departing soon!

"The Love Boat" cruised into their second season with brighter stars, campier stories and lots of loooooove.

This show is predictable, loopy and corny, and yet.....I so enjoy it. Maybe I'm a little loopy and corny, myself. At any rate, it's always a wonderful trip down memory lane and good fun with a few laughs here and there.

The gang's all here: Captain Stubing, Doc, Julie, Isaac and Gopher. This time around, we meet Julie's parents played by Betty Garrett and Norman Fell. We also meet Gopher's sister played by "Little House on the Prairie's" Melissa Sue Anderson. That's one of my favorite episodes of this half season, because disco maniac and "Dance Fever" host Deney Terrio shows up and dances with her in a scene that is laugh-out-loud funny. To think of some loon starting to dance like that (as my grandmother would say...'like a worm in hot ashes') in the middle of everyone else dancing and minding their own business is truly hilarious.

Other stars and celebrities who show up are: Sonny Bono, Judy Landers(after all, what's a 70's or 80's show without a Landers sister), Erik Estrada, Allen Ludden, Billy Crystal, Robert Reed, Vincent Price (in their Halloween episode), Robert Goulet, Janet Leigh, Greg Morris, June Allyson, Van Johnson, Peter Graves, Rhonda Fleming, Florence Henderson, Connie Stevens, Rue McClanahan, Sid Caesar and twins Cyb and Trish Barnstable (who I've never seen before or with that what you will).

Volume one of season two offers 12 episodes and one two-hour movie to start the season. The quality is great. These shows are fun and make you feel good - there's a lot of pretty, bright color and light romance. Bring on the rest of the other seasons!
