The Love Boat (1977)

Gavin MacLeod as "Captain Merrill Stubing"

"The Loooooove Boat ... " is the familiar refrain that greets viewers at the start of each episode of this long-running series. The romantic-sounding Love Boat promises -- and delivers -- something for everyone. Specifically, it promises a cavalcade of famous guest stars (including many film stars making rare TV appearances), breezy plots, stories of love and plenty of laughs. Join the members of the Pacific Princess crew, headed by Capt. Stubing (Gavin MacLeod), as they greet passengers for the trip of a lifetime. Three made-for-TV movies were made before the series premiered in 1977.
