Doc Falls In Love With A Stowaway
21 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Message for Maureen/The Acapulco Connection/Gotcha is the 4th episode of the first season of The Love Boat.Guest stars include Bill Bixby,Brenda Benet,Charo,Milton Berle and Audra Lindley.

In it,we get to see a sportswriter rekindle an old romance with a female tennis professional who is temporarily sidelined and confined in a wheelchair.What would prove critical to the romance is that the sportswriter has been critical of her performance in the previous tournaments.Meanwhile,a woman who aspires to be a singer in the United States stows away inside the ship.Dr. Adam Bricker or simply Doc falls head over heels towards her.Will her secret be revealed? Finally,a practical joker has annoyed too many people including his wife and many passengers.

There is nothing really worth mentioning in this episode as the jokes become standard and were expected to provide laughter to the viewer.Too bad that it has become average with the laugh track becoming more funny.What is good about it is we get to see Doc becomes involved in one of the subplots.
