Storyline

A guy (Brian Kerwin) whom Julie (Lauren Tewes) booked to entertain the passengers, is a male stripper. He's also a teacher and runs into the head of the PTA (Christopher Norris)) and tries to keep her from seeing him perform. A guy (Flip Wilson), whose wife (Marla Gibbs) just divorced him, comes on board and is suicidal. Isaac (Ted Lange) tries to help by calling his wife but she refuses to talk to him. So Isaac tries to set him up with some girls but then his ex-wife shows up. And the Captain (Gavin MacLeod) recognizes one of the passengers as a known jewel thief (Michael Zaslow). And when another passenger's (Henny Backus) diamond pendant is stolen, the Captain suspects him. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

No stupid laugh track
21 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Right off the bat, this is a better episode because of the omission of the silly laugh track, which was never needed for this show in the first place. There's some familiar faces including Joan Van Ark, Flip Wilson, Marla Gibbs, an actress named Christopher Norris(Christopher?), Michael Zaslow, Brian Kerwin, and Jim Backus. All 3 stories were pretty good, with the Wilson segment being the weakest of the bunch, but the acting was decent enough, and not as corny as other episodes, although I find it way too easy how folks sleep with each other in this show. A few things stand out; first off, there's an embarrassing dance by a male stripper(Kerwin), and I had trouble watching this painfully slow "performance", and I give Kerwin credit for doing this with a straight face. Something else that didn't totally jive with me was the coincidence that both couples(Van Ark and Zaslow)are jewel thieves. Also, both Doc and Vicki make only quick appearances. I find it interesting that this(1981)was shortly before serious sexually transmitted diseases became more prevalent in the public's eye, as passengers on the Love Boat don't seem to give a hoot who they go to bed with. All in all, I still feel this was as solid episode that I' recommend.
