RIP Gavin MacLeod

Gavin had quite a run as an actor! After many years as the writer Murray on The Mary Tyler Moore Show he landed a decade-long gig as Captain Stubing on The Love Boat. I do hope he took quite a vacation after that. Beyond that, I only remember him in the film version of Operation: Petticoat as the supply mate who requested toilet paper from the quartermaster with hilarious results.

Outside of these comedies, he did do drama pretty well and long before the Seventies, he played some heavies and cops.

Thanks for everything Mr. MacLeod. Saturday nights on TV via your starring roles for two decades wouldn’t be the same!
