    Hi,
    a few days ago a friend told me that in the US, the "Love Boat" had a laugh track.
    I couldn't believe that, because in the German dubbed version of it there never was a laugh track. So i went to the internets and watched one episode of it with the original audio.
    Indeed, there was a laugh track. I found the episode to be quite good ... and NOW I CAN'T STOP WATCHING IT! [​IMG]
    I got LOVE BOAT addicted, watched almost 2 seasons in 3 days now and when i'm outsinde the house i'm humming that theme tune all the time!! Am i getting nuts? :lmao:

    But seriously. I noticed that the laugh track is not in every episode, some didn't have it.
    For example one episode of S7: and here is another one of S8: and they both don't have a laugh track.

    So does anyone know which seasons/episodes had the laugh track, and which didn't?
    While waiting for your answers i go back to watch more LOVE BOAT :loon:

    I went through a similar phase about a year or two ago. I found it all on YouTube and watched about a full season in a few days. But to be honest it got very boring very fast and I didn't even make it to Linda Evans, Pamela Sue Martin or Joan Collins' appearances.

    The first episode i linked above has Linda Evans AND John Forsythe! But they don't share the same storyline, which is a little strange. :D
    And that Lee Horsley reminds me of Mark Jennings BIG TIME (same porn mustache)!
    So when i saw the opening credits with these three guys appearing in a row as a Dynasty-fan and considering this is a Spelling production as well, I expected a love triangle between Krystle, Blake and Mark of course! lol

    Here´s a little guide to TLB I did not long ago for my site (sorry if I´m publicizing it, again...). I also have a lot of episodes on dvd but made the selection with the Imdb guide to avoid the shows without soap (or classic movie) guest stars:

    Thanks! :D
    So, do YOU know, which seasons/episodes have the laughing track (like a sitcom) and which don't?
    That's still so strange. Having watched it in German without laugh track, i've never seen it as a sitcom. But it is indeed one of the very few sitcoms with 60 minutes runtime. :D

    I´m afraid I can´t be sure because I watch it dubbed into Spanish, and the laughing track only was (I think) on the First Season.
