Love Boat, The

LOVE, EXCITING and new. Come on board. We’re expecting you! Good old Aaron, serving up another long-running format purely in order to shoehorn famous faces into the same programme for almost ten years. Staple afternoon ITV filler, with GAVIN MACLEOD, FRED GRANDY and BERNIE KOPELL setting a course for adventure, their mind on a new romance. JACK JONES crooned the, as you can see, unforgettable theme.

    A pre-Lois/Wisteria Lane Teri Hatcher was one of the “Love Boat Mermaids” in the final season (when they also binned Jack Jones’s version of the great Charles Fox theme and got in a new one from Dionne Warwick). The less said about BBC1 plaguing afternoon schedules with “The Love Boat: The Next Wave” the better, methinks.

    Channel 5 dug out some episodes of this a few years ago, along with some of Charlie’s Angels.
