Doc's Romance Involves Joe Namath
5 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Rent a Romeo/Matchmaker, Matchmaker/Y' Gotta Have Heart" is the seventeenth episode of the third season of The Love Boat.The actors and actresses that appeared as guests in it are Misty Rowe,Vicki Lawrence, Joe Namath,Mark James,Ja'net DuBois, Cleavon Little,Brett Somers and Phil Harris.

Doc's plan of spending time with a woman becomes disastrous in this cruise of the Pacific Princess as his lady's sister comes to tag along with her.The said unstable sister gets romanced unexpectedly by a playboy friend.This was set up by Doc to get some privacy in her own romance.Meanwhile,Vicki tries to help a little boy to get re-united with his divorced parents.Finally,a wife is trying to help her husband to recover after undergoing heart surgery.

Well,we get to see another romantic interlude for Doc.But interestingly,the show has Joe Namath as an interesting guest.The athlete/actor portrayed the playboy friend who is trying to romance the unstable sister of Doc's lady.
