The stories range from silly (a wife, whose husband is planning a surprise party for her, thinks he is trying to kill her) to serious (a mother grieves over the loss of her young son). This being the late '70s (and a show produced by Aaron Spelling), there is much hanky-panky (Isaac has an onboard fling with an incognito jazz singer portrayed by Diahann Carroll), but traditional family values usually win out (though feminists may want to hurl themselves overboard after the episode in which successful advice columnist Eva Gabor agrees to take a break from her popular column to tend to neglected and straying husband Leslie Nielsen). Those who have been looking forward to this pleasure cruise may be disappointed to find that the DVD accommodations are not exactly deluxe. It's only the first 12 episodes, the pilot movie that launched the series is not included, and there are no episode commentaries, interviews, or other extras, save for optional viewing episode promos. But The Love Boat itself is still a great escape, so "come on board, we've been expecting you." --Donald Liebenson

Pay full price for half the episodes and then play the "waiting game" for the rest of the season? PATHETIC! We already wait too long as it is for most follow up seasons, now they have us waiting around for the other HALF of a season!
I predict that profits will be FAR LESS for the studio because of the decision to split the season into two volumes. Most potential buyers will wait for a decent price drop, or the lower priced "used" sets that should quickly become available.
Here's a glimpse at SOME of the great guest stars in the first 12 epsiodes;
John Ritter, Suzanne Somers, Jaclyn Smith, Meredith Baxter Birney, Jimmie Walker, Sherman Hemsley, LaWanda Page, Kristy McNichol, Scott Baio, Richard Mulligan, Milton Berle, Charo, Bill Bixby, Jim Nabors, Patty Duke, Tab Hunter, Steve Allen, Sandy Duncan, Loni Anderson, Phil Silvers, Joanna Kerns, Jane Curtin, Leslie Nielsen, Robert Urich, Florence Henderson, Donna Mills, Dick Sargent, Pat Morita, and Anson Williams.

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!!!!!!!!

Anyways, it's great to have this show on dvd and hope all 10 seasons to be released soon PLUS THE REUNION 1990 TV MOVIE SPECIAL.

I love this sweet series. Good to see all of the old faces I remember and love. My only complaint is it has no play all option. It is subtitled in English for the deaf.Published 12 months ago by Endora Aphrattos
