1.0 out of 5 starsThe Titles are Wrong!
None of the descriptions are correct for the episodes that actually air. I was looking for a specific episode from season 1 and according to the list, it's episode 7, but it is a completely different episode than the one described. I'm currently looking through the entire season just to find the episode I want to see.

1.0 out of 5 starsEpisodes are all listed incorrectly
None of the titles are right. I was looking for the episode with John Gavin...supposed to be episode 11 but that’s something totally different. Geez...y’all need to fix this! We pay for this subscription.

4.0 out of 5 starsSome of the Episodes and their titles don't match.
I love watching the old episodes and recognizing people that we may not have realized who they were back then. However, some of the episode titles don't go with the actual episode playing.

1.0 out of 5 starsI love the Love Boat but the Episodes here are all mixed up! PLEASE FIX!
Hey Amazon Prime or Paramount - somebody was smoking some Maui Wowie when they paired episode descriptions and the episodes. They don't match up. Can you please fix this?
