Well, it looks like the fans are not alone in the bitter distaste of Season- Volume releases from Paramount. In the latest EW (#981, March 7, 2008), a full page dvd review of the Love Boat follows a headline article entitled: Ship of Fools From the first paragraph of the review... "There are so many reasons not to buy the first ever Love Boat dvd set. For one thing, it's not even all of Season One. Instead, you have to settle for merely the first 12 of 25 episodes... There's also the matter of the bonus features or rather the almost complete lack of them (network promos are all you get here)..." Paramount's List Price? 36.98 But you can get Season One (half) for 24.99 on Amazon. Up next from Paramount? Dynasty Season 3 (1/2). Total hours of episodes on Dynasty Season 3? 9 hours and 31 minutes, confirmed by Paramount, reported by TV Shows on DVD.com Wonder what they'll be charging for this 1/2 bag of goodies.
