Not the captain sad

Love Boat was one of my favorite shows in the 70's. Cool theme song too.

RIP Gavin MacLeod

The Love Boat was a staple for me as a kid in the 70s and 80s. He was also a very memorable guest star on a lot of my favorite sitcoms like The Munsters, Gomer Pyle USMC, Hogan's Heroes and The Andy Griffith Show.
