Welcome to the fourth DVD voyage of The Love Boat’s Pacific Princess, where the hook-ups are plentiful and the penicillin shots are always free!
Anchors aweigh and get another bottle of bleach: they don’t call it “The Love Boat” for nothing!
Oh, it’s the same alright. Nothing’s changed on The Love Boat this sophomore season except the guest passenger list and the ever-morphing rationalizations for the rampant sexual harassment plaguing the Pacific Princess. And ain’t you glad they left it alone?

I hate reality TV. But after seeing all the half-naked contestants in promos for Love Island on CBS, I’m gonna give it shot.
It’s been forty years since CBS’ Dallas, in its sophomore 1978-79 season, moved to Friday nights and started its run as the highest-rated TV series of the first half of the 1980s. It’s also been about a year since I looked at Dallas’s premiere miniseries/season (time flies here at the high-flying Drunk TV offices).

Do the things they call “TV series” today have Christmas episodes? I wouldn’t know, because you couldn’t pay me to watch new television. The last time I tried, it was some CBS Medical Center Meets Doogie Howser, M.D. mash-up, featuring an autistic savant hero who head-ciphers in Hemo the Magnificent graphics (I went straight for … Continue reading ‘Merry Sitcom!
