Dave, I couldn't agree with you more about Sea Hunt, and I love all the other shows too. I grew up on American Bandstand. Plus I really miss Dragnet.
And as unrealistic as it was...I gotta believe THE LOVE BOAT did alot to promote the cruise industry. Don't you wish the rooms actually DID look like that?
Can't wait to head to Mobile and head out on Elation. Been way too long.
