Fansworth Decides
6 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Farnsworth's Fling / Three in a Bed / I Remember Helen / Merrill, Melanie & Melanesia / Gopher Farnsworth Smith – Part 2" is the second part of the 7th episode of the fifth season of The Love Boat.

The guest stars appearing are the following:Anthony Andrews,Lloyd Bridges,The Koala,Linda Evans,Morgan Fairchild, Alan Fletcher,Grant Goodeve, Beth Holland , Graham Kennedy , Margaret Laurence,Brendon Lunney,Patti MacLeod, Ethel Merman, Jim Nabors, Rusell Newman and Jessica Walter.

This star-studded episode has the Pacific Passenger going to a cruise in Australia.In the second part,we get to see Fansworth to decide who among his family members will be included in the will and who will be left out.It was also interesting to see Julie,the cruise director, to think about Tony Selkirk,the guy she nearly married.

This was definitely an interest two-part episode.Aside from having special guest like Lloyd Bridges, Morgan Fairchild and the Captain's real-life wife Patti MacLeod,we also get to witness interesting different characters.
