Storyline

Ellen and Jesse (Charlotte Rae and Charles Nelson Reilly) are beginning to get annoyed with each other and to find the cruise monotonous. Having been beaten during the games in Vancouver, Merrill Stubing's (Gavin MacLeod) competitive spirit kicks in and he becomes as tough as Gunner Norquist (Ted Knight) is, upsetting Vicki (Jill Whelan) and relentlessly driving his crew to physical exhaustion. Harry Meachum (Tom Bosley) romances Britta the masseuse (Priscilla Barnes), who tells him Gunner Norquist hired professional athletes to rig the games. When Merrill hears this, he bears down even harder, until Vicki persuades him to join the competition, personally, and race against Gunner on dog sleds in Ketchikan, Alaska. Megan Lewis (Mary Crosby) resents Dr. Skip Van Damme's (John James) workaholic tendencies and he finds that his Macho Mints doesn't work as planned. Written by Maisie Fleckum

Interesting Characters Going To Alaska
18 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Pride of the Pacific/The Viking's Son/Separate Vacations/The Experiment/Getting to Know You: Part 2" is the second part of the 19th episode of the fifth season of The Love Boat. The guest stars appearing on this two-part episode are Pricilla Barnes, Sonny Bono, Tom Bosley, Woody Brown, Mary Crosby, Ted Knight, Charles Nelson Reilly and Charlotte Rae.

Captain Stubing becomes extremely competitive after he was beaten during the games.His competitive spirit is showing and it sort of driving nuts among the crew particularly Julie and Vicki.Meanwhile,Ellen and Jesse are finding the cruise monotonous that they begin to upset each other.Harry is trying to romances Britta,whom everyone does not suspect of being sent by the Captain Stubing's opponent.But upon hearing the desire to rig games,the captain's competitive spirit is increasing.Finally,the scientist Dr. Skip Van Damme is on the brink of losing his girlfriend due to being workaholic and finds out that the love potion that he is working on has no effect at all.

Well,it we have interesting conclusion in it despite having a predictable script.What makes it interesting is not the story but the characters that we are introduced in it.Just like what I have said in the first part review, it was really nice to see the sexy Priscilla Barnes of Three's Company.
