TV Series
    (September 24, 1977-May 24, 1986)
    Aired on ABC
    Gavin MacLeod as your captain, Merrill Stubing
    Bernie Kopell as your ship's doctor, Adam Bricker
    Fred Grandy as your yeoman purser, Burl 'Gopher' Smith
    Ted Lange as your bartender, Isaac Washington
    Lauren Tewes as your cruise director, Julie McCoy (1977-84)
    Jill Whelan as Vicki Stubing (1979-86)
    Ted McGinley as your ship's photographer, Ashley Covington 'Ace' Evans (1984-86)
    Produced by Aaron Spelling
    Premise: Romantic adventures of the passengers and crew of the Pacific Princess ocean liner
    Gavin MacLeod also portrayed Captain Stubing's brother and father.
    The storylines in each episode were written by different writers, producing frequent continuity errors.
    The practice also led to unwieldy episode titles like 'Pride of the Pacific/The Viking's Son/Separate Vacations/The Experiment/Getting to Know You: Part 1.'
    During the last season, the 'The' was dropped from the title and the theme song singer switched from Jack Jones to Dionne Warwick.
    UPN tried to revive it with the short-lived 'The Love Boat: The Next Wave' (1998-99).
    The multiple storylines allowed each episode to incorporate comedy and drama.
    A ton of Hollywood veterans landed gigs as guest stars.
    Jack Jones has a cameo singing 'The Love Boat Theme' in 'Airplane II.'
    It inspired a drinking game: everybody choose a character (including the ship itself if needed) and drink when your character appears on screen.
