Love, American Style

Love, American Style



In this anthology comedy series, each hour-long episode features a line-up of different celebrity guest stars appearing in short stories or vignettes about love and romance. Seen as a forerunner of TV anthology styled shows, Love, American Style was all about dating, relating and mating. This was still the early 70's however, so all of this hank-panky was as prim and proper as an elderly maiden aunt.
Consisting of unrelated stories with differing themes on romance, usually in a comedic vein, the show was often the home of a string of B-list actors playing different characters in many episodes. Each episode was essentially of a series of one act plays, each one with the word “Love” in the title.
Once described as the place "where failed sitcom pilots went to die," producer Aaron Spelling often culled the funniest segments of a pilot to be recreated as one of the stories on the show.

I can still recall that waiting for the new episode of “Love, American Style during Friday nights is one of my weekly habits! Yea right, I love this show! Although it’s wild most of the time because of some adult themes, this show has some touching episodes and good sense of comedy. One of the genuine and best anthology I’ve seen. Stuart Margolin and Mary Grover are definitely great and talented actors! Read more
