Solid Love Boat Episdoe
3 April 2016 | by ebach-264-953484See all my reviews

Solid and enjoyable Love Boat episode. I had not seen the show in years but caught it on one of the classic TV channels- MeTV.

The main highlights of the show concerned the captain's daughter, Vicki, having a crush on a rock singer. The lead guest star is Britt Ekland who is always great.

They rounded at the casts with some solid 70s character actors: Catherine Campbell, Alan Feinstein, and Steve Kanaly. I always enjoyed Steve Kanaly as guest star in 70s detective shows and his work on Dallas. It's not a classic episode but quite enjoyable.

Like most episodes had three main plot lines. They were Vicki's crush on a performing rock star being mobbed 20 something women. Alan Feinstein and Britt Ekland have a budding romance put on the rocks when Britt's insurance employer reneges on an insurance settlement. Final story is Steve Kanaly on the rebound from a bad romance.
