A Minister Romances An Exotic Dancer
27 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Man of the Cloth / Her Own Two Feet / Tony's Family" is the ninth episode of the second season of The Love Boat.Guest stars appearing in it are June Allyson, Vivian Blaine, Peter Graves, Van Johnson, Roz Kelly, Larry Storch, Alan Young, Mitzi Hoag, Tony La Torre, Renata Vanni, Mario Bellini, Jennifer Surprenant and Kelly Greenwood.

The stories that occur in the cruise are the following: a minister falls for an exotic dancer which disgusts the female parishioner who does something to break them up;a wife denies her blindness and her husband tries to help her cope up with it and accept her disability; and a chief engineer has his entire family stow away on board.

This is an entertaining episode especially the romance between the minister and the exotic dancer.Mission Impossible star Peter Graves definitely provided laughs as Reverend Gerald Whitney.As for the rest of the stories,they were alright.
