  • Answer to Strip Poker

    You are thinking of Love and the Physical, which aired January 1972. A couple wanted to get married, but the man was hesitant about getting the physical for a license. So the woman asks her doctor for help, and he suggests he come over with a young female doctor that could give him an exam without him knowing about it. He does need to take it shirt off of course for the exam, and strip poker was the best way to do it. Starred LAS vignette regular Phyllis Davis, McHale's Navy's Gary Vinson, veteran actor Richard Erdman as the doctor. Show was stolen by Patrica Harty as the young doctor, who removed her skirt without hesitation or shame when she lost it in the game.
  • Strip Poker

    I watched Love American Style during the initial runs in the late 60's and early that old!) One episode depicted two couples playing strip Poker; however, I've never seen that episode can't remember what the name of it was, nor the season. Does anyone remember that one? Love American Style was a perfect example of "Campy" like Benny Hill! Loved it!
  • An groundbreaking show for it's time that still holds up today

    People often forget how innovative this show was when it first appeared on TV 40 years ago, why was it so innovative? well, for starters it was a comedy anthology show, which has never been done before up until it came out, and it was hour long, while most comedy shows before Love American Style were restricted to the half hour sitcom format (except for the Variety Sketch Comedy Shows such as Carol Brunnet and the Smothers Brothers),. Also, most episodes of the series were filmed neither with a laugh track or a live studio audiance, so it set the standard for many of the comedy shows we see today, such as Modern Family or the Office.

    in Conclusion, Love American Style had a Fantastic concept for a show of it's time and it shouldn't be forgotten today. it's a shame it's not on TV anymore (at least it's on DVD finally)

  • My first "grown-up" show as a kid!

    What can I say about Love American Style? It's a funny show and I'm happy it's finally on DVD. You have a cavalcade of stars in tales of love in some of the funniest situations. Also, there was that groovy theme song and score to remember, those funny blackouts between each story and yes, the big brass bed in every story and blackout skit. I'm sure at the time of it's original run, these were racy and by today's standards, these would be G-rated. Still, Love American Style was the first "adult" show I ever saw as a kid!
  • A fuuny, camp classic!

    I loved the series"Love American Style"!!! It was a funny, campy classic! I had to watch it on DVD, as it went off the air when I was only three, but it had such a great flavor of the late 1960's and early 1970's. Each week another group of crazy love stories with the "Only In America" treatment. Just so juicy and never, ever, dull. I do wish this one series could be brought back, but sadly, the times have passed where this type of innocent silliness would be condidered marketable. Oh, for the good old days and the flavor of another time!!!
  • The show just popped in my head!

    I was 7 when the show ended. I remember that it made me feel like I was getting something I shouldn't be getting. Often on way past bedtime but I still enjoyed the stories and characters - Flip Wilson, Artie Shaw and many others that were ahead of their time. I sure wish it was on DVD!!
  • mmmmmmmmmmmmm sexy...

    Inspired many a naughty thought in the middle of the night... The wedding at the nudist colony... The couple that couldn't stop kissing... The episode on Wife Swapping... Naiively prompting me to enter into a conversation on the subject with my mother! Who clearly saw it in a very different light to me. And the orgasmic fireworks at the start of the show... Seriously that is a show I'd like to see again... Is it out on DVD yet? I guess its not the kind of show you'd release...
  • I used to love this show groing up!

    The plots were cheesy an the acting was silly. But as a teen growing up in the 60’s &70’s I loved this show. Not because it stimulated my brain, but it was, ahem, stimulating! Childish fantasies acted out by beautiful women. The show never made me laugh, but it made me happy. It gave me hope that there was love out there for me, with a pretty girl attached to it!
