Mix a little bit of Love Boat with a touch of Fantasy Island, wrap the entire package as a detective series, and you have Finder of Lost Loves. Cary Maxwell was a wealthy widower who, after the untimely death of his beloved wife Kate, had decided to devote the remainder of his working life reuniting star-crossed lovers and tracking down old flames. With the help of his beautiful assistant, Daisy (Kate's sister), his young trainee, Brian, and his efficient office manager, Rita, Cary sought to bring romance back into the lives of others. In this high-tech contemporary world it was not surprising that his most valued asset was Oscar, the computer he used to tie pieces of information together and locate the missing people his clients sought. Each episode contained two or three separate stories, and most resolved themselves into appropriately satisfying happy endings, the trademark of producer Aaron Spelling, who was also responsible for the aforementioned Love Boat and Fantasy Island.
