Another through line in my life and leah is my writing partner and we just decided to write a story that was very very very loosely based on my life about child star who grows up a gets married. That has two children. That marriage is unsuccessful. She meets a very wealthy older gentleman and is living the high life and then he dies and leaves her with no money. 'cause he's made so many bad business deals that now the only thing that he's left her that hasn't been taken by the government or by other creditors is a rundown strip club in downtown. La so she decides that she is going to turn this strip club but as an apartment upstairs where she and her kids now have to live in to a cabaret and so that is the the basic storyline and we shot one episode before. Kobe hit then. We have been shooting more episodes in much smaller. Five to seven minute shows That we've put on on youtube because people tend to want to watch just little bits.

You love this machine as much as i do. Maybe you should be my next infomercial and for me. It was just a lark. I didn't even care if i got paid. I didn't care one way or the other for me. It was just hilarious. That my most favorite thing on the planet. I would be in the infomercial for and that's why i did it so you could set it and forget it. I totally could set it.

And i worked with those guys for for a little while and they're great. Were still all really good friends But you know my career just moved different direction. Back to new york in. You did a little your ratio. You had one woman show called your willin in drydock. I do and i do you know. It's very hard for me to do that. Show because i have kids. I don't like to do a lot of travel away from my family until one of them is twenty six but the other one is fifteen. So i go very far away from home so i can be with them because they are my first priority but i when i lived back east in pennsylvania i would drive up. Do my show in new york. I've done it in canada.

Did you have a medium that you prefer between stage or film more tv which all. They're so different. When you're on stage you get the audiences immediate reaction but you also get a of weeks at least to rehearse and try out stop and think about what works and what doesn't When you're doing television it's much quicker than that film is a little slower than television. So it's a little bit more like theater in that you have more rehearsal time And depending on what television medium. You're in if you're in a soap opera. I mean you barely walk on the set and they say action in your recording. Tv shows you have a little more time. So it's all you know there are variations on all of it and they all have things that i like about each one of them as we said earlier. You you could do a podcast. Go the brian and jill show and you did a lot of improv. We did my friend. Brian felts was on a radio station. Here in los angeles kahlo. S for twenty years and may Howard stern was never able to to beat them in ratings and their two great guys dear friends of mine. Brian and i have been friends for probably thirty years.

democratic candidates on the stage in making the case for why he's the best candidate to defeat Donald tropic unite this country can he unite this country one former face off against Joe Biden Amy closure Bernie Sanders what a judge and Elizabeth Warren tomorrow night in Las Vegas in that democratic debate you know I can only think the only reason the only reason he's up in the poll is simply not can use last night as an example watching TV and I must have seen in a probably one hour period saw probably four or five Bloomberg adds and that's it yeah Democrats can be bought yeah that Susan in north Austin good morning how good morning guys I just want to tell you that I think that Bloomberg Aspin attended a huge amount of farmers and really should probably talk to the people at Ammon Purdue University and let them now there's a way more than farming then all right put in a seat in the dirt yeah absolutely so you know what Susan if if if he would have made those comments in the sixties I think I would agree with you there are very few farmers in America today very few it's it's not what way it was forty fifty year I am not the family a family I actually know people that have done it generationally it is hard work and they're all you people that continue to do well yeah I'm a I'm from Indiana and god bless the foreigners yeah no you're right maybe Michael Bloomberg should have a speaking engagement on the campus at a and M. well and what they got to see but the Aggie cincy about farming there yeah and and it really it's gonna take a certain individual that wants to work for now just have it I've never done it but may just Bloomberg to serve this much attention as he that much of a threat again I think Todd I really think it comes down to more is she connecting with Democrats or is it just the name is in their face over and over and over and over so it's name recognition we know him we we were familiar with him now we're seeing it over now to be honest maybe he shouldn't participate in that debate think about it if if if you can get nineteen percentage points and be just behind Bernie Sanders the leader going into Vegas why would he go on a debate stage potentially totally dismantle any progress he's made because I don't think just entered right just keep buying that hello I don't think he will debate well the guy his his lack them and let's face it yeah you got it you got to have the the you've got to have the material certainly you got to have the knowledge up there you go but charisma is a big part of it the guy has zero charisma whatsoever he

it's about a place were predators have discovered where they can have access to Jill Whelan part of it is about the Boy Scouts when it comes to keeping things secret in hiding saying well okay there's some ma some serious evidence of that I do question that because apparently this is been going on a lot longer than any of us realize none of these problems what happened in the Boy Scouts the Catholic Church your public school yeah your child youth organization volleyball club these things happen across all youth organizations but they wouldn't happen if more parents were involved right that is that is true these predators they get involved in these organizations and then they find a week good cell in the group that doesn't have parent involvement it is often dropped off by an uncle or something like that yeah he's really paying attention to in these predators see that that's a wounded gazelle and it's a they're able to swoop in yeah more involved right exactly how does it how does that how would that happen how would that be able to to to happen if the parent was heavily involved in and know what's going on in spot something that does not look rider sound right yeah you know and and and they headed off at the pass I can only think that that's got to be a major component in a right there I can't listen how do you have a kid how do you have a kid and not be heavily involved in in whatever they're doing yeah how does that happen J. on one eighty three good morning a like your show thank you I think you're I think you're underestimating bloomers chances I mean

So yes she was a literary heroine of mine. But then of course. I've had some fictional characters this five emulated and of course a half dimension half fry in Lord of the Rings yes because he's just indisputably the most adventurous and undaunted and vulnerable intelligence and brave character in any fantasy story. I think yes idea of going off on a mission and having to survive and overcome trials to in order to achieve something for the greater good. This is great blueprint. Probably Babe Hugely Influential in some of the stories that I've rich and that new printed of the quest story lately is perhaps one of the most iconic adventure stories isn't a noted rings and the Hobbit and whole checking out into the unknown with perhaps the sense of Naievety as to what lies ahead of you. You're literally here rates. Have you any other real life? Heroes heroines that you have to tell us a bit more about. I'm trying to think because there are so many heroic characters and little acts of heroism often go unnoticed. And I think you know to single out. Any one in particular would suit of almost elevate them above above the other so perhaps I could just remarkable some of the qualities of being a hero as opposed to singling out and championing a particular hero and and I suppose the qualities of being here are about aspiring to that higher. Self I think is there in all of us. I'm that tells us let it go. That's patio that's not a big deal you know. Think of the bigger picture show courage. Even when you're very scared. Think about the impact about this set of circumstances might have on others and that heroism to sort of continue to face adversity. Even I think even when the odds appear almost impossible and that's what makes truly heroic characters and I think you know. We see that almost every day in in lives around us you know the person who jumps into the stream to try and help a unknown stranger who is in need the rescue helicopters go. I smuggled us at the start of the JERKINS TRILOGY. You know in the lifeboat men and women who go out into really pretty horrendous conditions in order to try to save life and I think those are the kind of heroes that I would like to emulate and to and to champion really even ambulance drivers. You know you're driving to a horrific crash scene and you knew that you know what you're about to see is going to traumatize him and it's going to live with you and you're going to have to deal with the and yet you still get up every morning and report for duty and log in and get behind. Jill Whelan unprepared to go at face. Whatever happens bus truly amazing. Yeah I really is missing a little bit with the IPAD. Two conversation recently for another podcast. App said we'd Cyber Williams he's Challenges and she said the thing. That's different between the people that we classes Hazel adventurous is. They just got condemn it. Nothing not kind of seems to be reflected in what you've said that these are people who perhaps discuss the side the doubts and acknowledged that And just doing anyway because like a mountain it said to be climbed that's Analogies to carry with a st have a particular favorite young adults owned children's book. That has stuck with the amulet. Might be one from your childhood Might be something that you've come across adult Darasun. Many one wonderful. Why novels and children's books. I look back into my childhood. Might sticking with the kind of fantasy or the whole noneya chronicles. With just all the want. I read them. I thought my gosh not just discovered this other world that I want to and from then on of course I had to inspect every wardrobe about to make sure that it didn't have a magical back door I and then recently there's been on television Phillip Pullman novels on those were just in that same genre absolutely fantastic as well as fancy which is one of my true areas of favoritism. If you like all the I love in in fiction I also kind of political thrillers because I also like writers like Georgia while nine thousand nine hundred four was one of my favorites so a lot of my sort of Waie. Owner novels are kind of hard hitting in terms of themes. And and there's lots of wine ables out by the have amazing impact in terms of some of the things they deal with say if people have read and enjoyed the sny Dania Chronicles Books that with the Heavyweights coming imminently. Other books perhaps People towards have they don't have to look much further than looking at some of these other shrine belt titles and you've got some fantastic targets on a magnificent growing list. I personally know Ruth Eastern on. I know the novels shoes written on. I've worked with her on writing and visits her. Initially she must using place mentally and some titles are just adventures again with that kind of magical world real world interface where you have to get up as you say. Get Out and go and do it. So books like arrowheads. Brilliant history as well with the kind of idea of figures from the Bronze Age falling into glasses and then the kind of curses that exist in fancy realities wonderful the Messenger but again. That's that's more of a full floor sort of mystery story that pulls you writing and you know accesses that you probably probably have a full spot. I mean this is what I say you. I mean the Rada coach breaking and the way that during the war those people of who resisted fighting. They had pacifist beliefs. You know suffered at the hands of the majority again. They're heroes of a kind unsung heroes often new. Just go with the masses who follow their own drum. Bayton live their lives according to their own coat that they've set for themselves so so definitely the work of Ruth Eastern Matt Dickinson again. If you like climbing mountains you've gotta read the Everest Files at if you've also of course enjoyed the Snowdonia. Chronicles you should read. The dark is rising. And Susan. Cooper's novels to amend the there've been old school now but still amazing do you have maybe top three adventure books shifting slightly active the young adult and children's fiction and anything. That's on your to read last night. Let me have a think about my reads. Lest is here you mind to let me have a little think? I would like to read. I think the bones for months and of course you know a title like one day as a tiger is is just intriguing. Isn't it starting amazing so I think those would be two two titles that I would like to read and I would also like to champion other writers who kind of event into this territory of folks that were adventure while they're definitely out there I think Keno life has to have something other than just you know surviving and getting a good job and then managing to stay alive through the day. I mean th there must be something beyond this and so to all of you who are thinking about going on adventures either infection or in reality. Just do it. It broadens the mind and the world is somehow a lot safer than you think it. Is You know grasp fortune and misfortune with both hands and go for it all. Jim favors the balls. If you you know there's an old African proverb says the same sorts of things you know you know he who would hunt. The elephants must enter the forest. Like what you have to go forward in life and think outside the your conference because there's a world of wonderful things under there all the time. Yes that will not all the time just as Friday said you know the road goes ever on and on but it just starts with that first step and Toronto at riot. And let's see where it takes. You think maybe we should challenge the listeners to the podcast to take that one step. Well thanks so much for joining us today. Sarah really enjoyed talking to you.

"jill whelan" Discussed on So it's a show?: keeping up with the Gilmore Girls
"Kyla and I'm the love boat the literal love boat yes that's who we're talking about today I am about television was mostly cop shows and sitcoms and so this was obviously feeling some kind of a need that only Aaron spelling really we had three different kinds of stories Aaron told me that when we first meeting sophisticated comedies broad funny one and we had a poignant and that poignant one made the difference between love American Style and the boat than us and that's what really worked with people they the touched that's really interesting how he explains that so because I was saying the other three always three storylines and one is just like make you laugh the one really is saying something what was the other one sophisticated sophisticated comedy abroad anyone in an appointment one yeah interesting kinda different three different levels of complexity right so you're getting something different each time hi and you're not feeling like overly heavy or just like all these three stooge abs- cool what were some of the stories in the episode you watched Kyla well I watched season two episode for because that seemed like a good one yeah and you know it has three storylines because they're always three titles the man who loved woman a different girl Oh my aching brother so definitely name the man who loved women is the sophisticated funny the different girl was the poignant one and then Omega brother was the fraud funny one goofy so yeah in this one one man falls in love with three passengers ears and he doesn't know that they're all traveling together oh no how is it ever going to get out of that one well I'm going to say woman from the nineteen undies maybe are a little more forgiving than women nowadays for this riding on the show they were they ended it thanking him telling him that a great time and they each give him a kiss on the mouth and tell him that they love him so what happens when they get off the boat that will they just say bye and then oh off the boat yeah I thought you were saying that they were all like sure we'll just do this group relationship no no it was good bye kiss gone it goodbye I love you That was that was surprising yeah but he he had to them each in a different way emotionally not ok yeah one woman was getting over her husband who had died a while ago so she's like now can move forward and so good for them turned out okay and then another one A. Two brothers decide to fake an injury so the one brother falls and pretends that he gets super jared can't walk is in a wheelchair the rest of the cruise but then he falls in love with someone and that causes him to help her when she falls down and so of course it shows that his back is not broken so no insurance money for them and then a couple had been uh separated for two years because the ban was he was overseas in the military and she had been with someone while he was gone he of course as another guy asked him wilt didn't you ever didn't you reach out to anyone he said well of course I did wasn't thought the same thing no it's different so but they make up and so that was absorbed I but definitely three Serlin fed what your cast member was saying what about yours would you watch while shout out to my local public library they had season one of the love boat on DVD so I watched a couple episodes from the first season and probably the episode that is the best example of all those story lines is episode one ten dear Beverly Slash the strike slash special delivery and in this episode owed we have the broad comedy being that the chef in the captain are in a tiff they just keep finding things disagree about the chef doesn't like that the captain puts ketchup on his gourmet meals and the captain gets mad win the chef won't make a chocolate souffle for a celebrity guest anyway so the chef goes on strike in our main cast have to try in Cook dinner for the whole boat and of course it does not go well so they have to make up our as sophisticated comedy is that the celebrity guest is a fictional advice columnist Aka dear beverly and she her husband or on this vacation and she's basically ignoring him because she's got throngs of fans and giving people advice and she's trying to write her column and do work and work on it book and he gets distracted by another lady of the boat which resolves once again very quickly and he never actually apologizes for kissing another woman. Okay yeah but I guess it's all okay 'cause they resolved it anyway we're just gonNA cruise on by that one in the poignant story line is that there is a separated couple on this cruise boat but they don't know the other is there and they're both regretting that they gave up on this marriage and that they're going through divorce and they both think it's too late to try and reconcile but lo and behold they run into each other just s. she's going into labor and he didn't know she was pregnant all I so yes so doc gives birth to the baby only the second maybe he's ever delivered he says and they reunite end all is good wow and one bonus storyline for you this was in another episode but we got a mention it Charro makes a special guest appearance as stole away she's a stowaway in a laundry hamper ends does not want to go back to Mexico they resolve the issue by offering her a job as an entertainer because of course she brought her guitar Campanis me Oh the made me walk at the bank itchy shocks me Max Jewish short the next step I do baby not bad okay by me we know now oh that's hilarious go yeah so did you know the the logo is based off of some true stories no interesting tell me more the show is based on a book titled Love Boats Plural Whoa I know imagine more than one there I imagine them all cruising along like heart fireworks popping up in between them rainbow above love it was written by Geraldine Saunders Chris who was the first female to become a cruise director for Princess cruises and she wrote a tell all book telling all sorts of store he's from her decade-long career as a cruise director and all of the fun run INS with passengers the crew in exotic destinations IT and ABC decided they would test the waters susie speak whether this story had any sea legs also I made three made for TV movies the love boat in nineteen seventy six the love boat to in seventy seven and the new love boat also in seventy seven th wow debuted later that year and basically they saw what they wanted to see in there like all right let's make this Sitcom and elsewhere in that today show interview Gavin Macleod said Oh I knew this was gonna run at least seven seasons went on to run ten and they did I'd have a few follow up TV movies so yeah it was based off with some true stories but feeling they took some liberties that's awesome so why Princess cruise underwrite the show because it seems like it's probably really good marketing oh totally on board in actually totally on board you're you're on a roll what they say no I don't know what they say thank you but actually many of the cast members went on to be spokespeople for Princess cruises which they go on to talk about in that's today show interview so you're totally on board with it too because actually my mom another thing she said was that watching that show piss she watched it every week she was a she was definitely fan but she said that was the first that she'd really heard of cruises that was interesting yes she didn't really know Oh a about them much at all and so this kind of this gave her insight to it so it worked now granted my mom has never been on a cruise so thank you caused her to go on a cruise but she was also a little too young to be book in her own crews except on a little bit a scene that I watched from the show that was a little boy who had a letter written by his mom maybe that said that he was old enough to cruise by himself and so a couple of the staffers ars were had to deal with him slow eleven year old well and many scenes were actually filmed on princess boats including the Pacific Princess ended sistership island princess so a majority of scenes were filmed on a sound stage but they actually did the film on boats and many episodes were filmed during actual cruises on those boats so they used real passengers as extras how that's fun am really did go to some of those really cool places and the girl who played the captain's daughter Jill Whelan said that she was doing schoolwork of course issue is still a child and legally she needs to do school but she was learning about the Great Wall of China while sitting on the Great Wall of China Oh she got to do some really cool things in seek cool parts of the world she otherwise wouldn't as being part of the show that's an anecdote for cocktail parties and the today's show it was good enough for the today show it's good enough for a party we love those anecdotes in fund back Ha you mentioned that your mom was really into the show I asked my mom if she'd watched it and she was like Oh yeah Saturday nights me the she was right I looked it up it was Saturday night and she said she would watch it back to back with fantasy island and that is in fact the it shows a hat on Saturday nights and apparently they had been put in this time slot that they thought was a graveyard timeslot and they made it watch night for TV good for them gave my mom said she watched it every week as she loved tuning in to find out who the guests were going to be she wanted to know who the stars were going to be that weak yeah that was like a big reason for it which is kind of interesting because it's not like you're I mean you are following all of the same people but like you have a set staff who are always there see their lives progress but I kind of thought I don't know would you really watch every week a show that doesn't have a lot of the same people like who storylines you're really into but my my mom called it like just a fun show like it was it was just one that you sat and you had a good time will in it sounds like some of these were pretty gimmicky stunt casting items we were really trying to get you to pay attention they had a crossover episode with Charlie's angels where the two shows kind of collaborated on a storyline the end there was also an episode where the two parents from the Brady bunch they were both in the same episode and they are characters didn't really they were different story lines but they had them walk by each other on the boat and Kinda give each other a look I know you all that's funny so it sounds like they've found fun ways to just get creative with their guest stars to okay I like that my mom also said that she wanted to be like Julie she called her Miss Sunshine happy positive.
"jill whelan" Discussed on So it's a show?: keeping up with the Gilmore Girls
"Hello and welcome to so it's a she podcast when we attempt to keep up with Laura in Rory's pop culture references on Gilmore girls I'll will sing and my name is low metaphorical just a symbol of who you are I am all the metaphors Indian and Julia cruise director yes which is totally another pop culture reference Eh when Laura Lie and Sukey are throw in Lord of the Rings Birthday Party and she introduce herself to the Kiddos reddening Riley Nice to meet you on Julia occurs director.

kissing and getting engaged ooh married and can't wait to hear more about that yeah you will because we're all the way work crews we've cruised through season three of Goma girls we are at the finale

college years say Cya to the high school days of plaid and hello to college well more newspaper life lots of sweaters yes and lots of well lots of romance but not that many boys interestingly enough yeah speaking of Romance in the sees 'cause we are always speaking of romance in High Seas Should we talk about this episode of Gilmore Girls I think we should because we had to learn about a line that was also used in a recent marvel movie not so recent those are strings Pinocchio Yeah Not so recent but yes the movie although in the Grand Scheme of the universe very recent Tro Tro yes the episode of Gilmore Girls we are talking about today is is episode three twenty two the season three finale those are Strings Pinocchio which aired May Twentieth Two thousand three great graduation time and in the scheme of the universe very recent so once again we've got a nice little short summary in a long story reline courtesy of IMDB summary Roy graduates from Chilton and the girls look forward to traveling in Europe Yale and opening the new in good luck on on storyline I don't know why they've got the differentiation but they do as graduation day approaches relearned her financial delayed was rejected so she turns to her grandparents for help despite the strings attached ties into the title Nice Little Bit This means Laurel I can use the rest of the money to buy the Dragonfly Inn rory gets a call from Jess in parentheses she thinks and Lewis his second thoughts about Nicole when Laura lay opens up to luke yet that man what a tear jerker I watched this episode ones like on my lunch break get work and I'm just like sitting there in my office crying during worry speech yeah so good yeah not not a good episode to watch a few be interacting with your co worker soon after we'll can I tell you something fun about this episode asides that fact that it's a really great episode you know that scene where they are making video yearbook kind of memorial thing the student that is driving Paris Craig easy 'cause she will not keep going and move on so Paris can record hers is actually Liza Weil Sister Samantha while let's see plays Paris's sister Nice Nice Little Cameo there from the family love those moments we're just talking about that and the Lord of the rings how they have some of the kids from the director and actors and those are sweet moments I think 'cause move meal no I'm a fan will should we talk about this reference a little bit yes I think so because in the last storyline didn't about Luke and Laura lie they are have some conversations about Nicole and luke summer plans diner couple of weeks and taken Nicole on a little trip fine we're driving through western Canada and then taking a cruise to Alaska cruise intimate I guess the love what crews a good spot to get down on one knee and do my ventriloquist and propose I have no plans to propose now but after you've had dinner at captain's Tubing's table and Isaac served you up a couple of more he does romantic cruises say commitment my friend I am not committing I am not proposing drop it stopped really drop it and just say it's dropped right it with my own ears aren't you figure radio and wouldn't have to do that so Taylor have had you ever heard the song the love boat will I knew of the TV show but I'd never watched it that's basically what I knew about it that it existed in this is a thing in the universe in the grand scheme of the universe that happened recently but was kind of not so recent to me because it was before I was born at least pretty sure yet I was right yeah I don't think I knew it existed I thought it was something else there is like another show that my mom had told me about when I was younger it was all like maybe love island that's also a new show but the island is a thing okay so it was something where the show always started with Doc about flying in or a vote flying in a plane flying in like I think it was called Love Island Audrey fat check later but I that's what I thought it was that show but it is not it is something different it is the flying boat show I none no none of the flying things only sailing on the open seas the love boat was a TV show that ran from nineteen seventy seven to eighty seven it was nominated for five emmys but the real thing you need to know about this show is they had some famous guest stars look to the whole time casts eventually but let me just read off to you all these people who wanted to be on the show and guest starred on this show many with connections to things we've already discussed no I'm shocked I know Vick surprise we've got Andy Griffith and Don knotts and Jim Nabors from the griffith show Erin Moran and Marion Ross Anton Bosley from happy days also Marion Ross of course from Gilmore Girls Zsa Zsa Gabor Charro acrimonious. I will talk about Her More Carol channing Ted Knight in Nancy Walker in Valerie Harper from the Mary Tyler Moore Show Ethel Merman Vicki Lawrence and Harvey Korman and Lyle Wagon here from Carol Burnett show that he white Debbie Allen Janet Jackson from Fame Donna Reed and shelly favors from Donna Reed Show Debbie reynolds ginger Rogers who we just talked about Jamie Lee Curtis Tom Hanks Olivia breath gene Kelly I mean I'm skipping over some of these now we're talking about it because I realized how crazy it is that I just keep talking and I have a real question for you art is going to be the new murder she wrote yet while I'm waiting to hear about all the murder she wrote stars we'll guess what Angela Lansbury was over on the show all my goodness shocked I don't know how it's passable that they missed Angela Lansbury when they had vincent price in Andy the hall in Hulk Hogan but somehow they did not have her how now see I asked my mom about this show and we'll get into more of what she said because I just I was like I wanted some background info I was like what was his show about back in your day and first of all the first thing that she did when I said Hey tell me about the love boat where she said the love like that's clearly what come that's top of mind I assume Floats yeah but then the second thing was so many guest stars and she said that there were probably some for murder she wrote but apparently not angel yourself no but if she mentioned Joan Rivers Courtney Cox she didn't mention specifics but she was like as a call out to us always finding people from murder mhm she mentioned that good call yet so this and the reason why there's so many guest stars was because the show had a new set of characters and stories every episode and there's usually three plotlines yet there's a pre tests cruise line boat that are five main characters are in charge of we've got our captain played by Gavin Macleod. We've guys one yes and also a little cranky sometimes we've got Bernie Coppell Plane Your Doc Adam bricker Ted land explain your bartender Isaac Fred grandy playing in a title that I don't fully understand he's the ship's purser Yaoman which is what I saw the opening credits and I was like I don't understand my mom googled it and told me and I still don't understand he's playing a guy named gopher and Lauren tweezers playing your cruise director Julie and of course there are other people who come along later in the series Jill Whelan who plays Vicky Gavin Macleod's Aka the captain's daughter and a few other people who become more semi regular yeah news stories every episode different characters from the main cast would be involved in certain storylines and so you'd see them react to it so you you see their lives progress to it was mostly these individual stories every week which was unique for the time yeah so the it wasn't really like many other TV shows on air at the time and actually I was watching it I was going is this a comedy or a drama has there's a laugh track but it's an hour long which is a pretty unusual combination I I honestly don't know that I've ever watched a show that has had a laugh track that's an hour long before usually it's like the twenty to thirty minute sitcoms. They had multiple vignettes every week they we're following comedic and romantic misadventures and they all had separate story lines with different writers that would go in and out throughout the episode so the did relate to each other there is usually some way that they would tie in at some point but it they were written by different writers and it wasn't a typical Sitcom it wasn't a sketch comedy and it was modeled after your show called Love American style but it did not fit that same format uh-huh and it was aimed at a little bit of an older audience but it debuted at number fourteen on the Nielsen Charts and it was super popular all the way through you even though The New York Times said it was dreadful porridge well not all shows are meant to be criminalize it is true the critics basically hated the show because it was corny it was silly but it ended up being a huge hit it had two hundred and fifty codes and like we said a bunch of famous people wanted to be on it and it was a hit just a few years ago how the cast of the love boat reunited on the today show for their fortieth anniversary so this is twenty seventeen and this is what they had to say about the show but there was nothing like it on the air it was romance and then.

"Gavin MacLeod to major major TV shows. How are you, sir? I'm just fabulous. Thank you are as well. Our captain as well. We just finished the today show, and it's so nice to see people's reaction after all these years. Hey gavin. I grew up watching the love boat every Saturday night with my family. But I read somewhere that when you first got the script, captain stooping was a little more, a frightening and more authoritarian than he wound up being played is that true. Absolutely. When they wrote them that way in the pilots. I mean, if he was he was a he was basically, very mean. And we realized if you're gonna have a series go on week after week people wanna see likeable people. They don't wanna see that kind of a guy putting down people sternness wasn't. He didn't have a heart in the back of it. And so we evolved him into being a more paternal, caring. Thank you. And that's what worked for all those years. Jill came on. You know, you realize that he was the father, and he had a great feeling and love is beautiful daughter. Who is absolutely gorgeous stops traffic? Happy place Sheikh we're looking for her to we had dinner last night. She put on the wrong thing. I don't know. What vegetable it was? And she said, guess what? I lost a tooth. Show tomorrow. I can't even smile. Hey gavin. I all I can say is you are onto like classic classic TV shows. I just hope you're getting residuals. That's all I'm gonna tell you. You don't get residuals after the six showing you don't get them anymore. So you don't get residuals. But what you do. Do you get a lot of you get a lot of recognition? If you don't change too much.
