Half a BOAT is better than none at all,
This review is from: The Love Boat: Season 1, Vol. 1 (DVD)
Love..exciting and new...
Wow, the Love Boat finally washed ashore onto DVD.
I am ticked like everyone else is that it is only 12 episode (half of the full 24 first season episodes) I am upset that NONE of the THREE Love Boat pre-series TV movies are included on this DVD. I am upset that there is no reunion special extra on DVD that most first season DVDs have(DVD like McHale's Navy, Growing Pains, Family Ties had them) . Also there is NO cast commentaries on any episodes. OKAY, that the bad news
Come Aboard, we're expecting you....
This Saturday evening stample of 1980's is a cute and corny show for family fun.The show was NEVER five star classical acting that would win any Emmys, just popcorn fun...that why its rated 4 stars, even now on DVD! The reason Love Boat was a staple for eight seasons was the simple storytelling with a family like crew. It had guess stars who you knew from other TV shows and were familar with. It was a formula for entertainment, but it works!
The Love Boat soon will be making another run....
One can hope the rest of season one will arrive soon. I still enjoyed the shows on this 12 episode DVD...I would have liked like everyone else had expressed and wanted a full season, but that is what the DVD makers are doing these days. Charging more money for less product, it is the nature of business
Welcome Aboard, It's LOVE, LOVE, LOVE
It is well worth to have a show where there is NO foul language...No car chases..No heavy duty issues..and a family can sit and enjoy this kind of television TOGETHER. There are not many things you can enjoy together these days. Love will never go out of style.
Paramount, Get the second volume out soon PLEASE!!!!!!!!
