Other Interesting Characters During Julie's High School Reunion
5 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Love Boat: Alas, Poor Dwyer/After the War/Itsy Bitsy/Ticket to Ride/Disco Baby: Part 2 is the second part of the seventeenth episode of the second season of The Love Boat.The actors and actresses appearing as guest stars in this two-part episode are Raymond Burr, Michael Cole, Kim Darby, Bob Denver, Conchata Ferrell, Christopher George, Lisa Hartman, Michael Lembeck, Kelly Monteith, John Rubinstein, Judi West and David Landsberg.

Well,the high school reunion of Julie finally takes place at the Pacific Princess.We also get to see Captain Stubing provides assistance Julie's high school teacher who is suffering from severe alcoholism.Apparently,he happens to be the head of the English and Drama department.Aside from that,we also get to see Doc who used to be attracted to Physical Education teacher whom he wanted to go out with is now surprisingly overweight.He now must deal with this reality.The other passengers we meet in this particular cruise are a draft dodger who feels guilty now that he finds out that his old best friend is now a disabled Vietnam War veteran.

The second part also has a lot of entertaining events aside from Julie's high school reunion as we get to see a lot of interesting characters.As always,we get to see Doc in a romantic interlude which has become sort of a trademark of the show.But nevertheless,the two part episode was definitely fun to watch.
