*** This review may contain spoilers ***

"Not So Fast, Gopher / Haven't We Met Before? / Foreign Exchange" is the 19th episode of the 3rd season of The Love Boat.The guest stars appearing on it are Ethel Merman,Johnny Yune,Momo Yashima,Nicholas Hammond,Hayley Mills,Bill Hudson, Brett Hudson, and Mark Hudson.

Gopher's mother becomes a passenger on this cruise of the Pacific Princess.She tries to hide her grief and sadness upon getting together with his son.Meanwhile,a comedian falls for a reporter who happens to be doing a story on him.Finally,we get to see a waiter who pretends to be a banker to increase his chances on romancing a jet-setter.

It was nice to see the Hudson Brothers as well as Sound Of Music and Spiderman fame Nicholas Hammond appear on this episode.Also,it was interesting to see Gopher's mother and have Gopher become the focus of the story among the crew after having Gavin McLeod appear in dual roles as Merrill and Marshall Stubing in the previous episode.

Miracles Only Comes From God, 7 October 2015

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The Miracles Of Jesus starts when Christopher Quantum and Joy Pepper witness a magician named Miraculo on the street during after school hours.This impresses Chris a lot and he starts to believe that Miraculo is actually gifted with real powers from God.But later,he and Joy together with the sleek robot Gizmo are taken by Superbook back in time to become witnesses to the many activities performed by Jesus during his public ministry.

Chris,Joy and Gizmo become witnesses to the activities made by Jesus in public.They see him share parables to a crowd to teach about God and his commandments.They also witness Jesus perform miracles.They see him cure people.Also,they witness him cast out demons out of a man possessed by an evil spirit.Finally,they also see him calm down a storm while he was in a boat together with his apostles.This impressed Chris a lot.He also learned that Jesus is a gifted by God to perform miracles.

At the end of the episode,Chris later discovers the tricks that Miraculo does to impresses the crowd of the so-called magical tricks that he performs in the crowd.His impression of the magician loses once Miraculo appears once again to perform in the crowd.

Well,after watching it,I still feel the discussion of miracles was obviously lacking.While the subject of miracles that Jesus performed was interesting,it was somewhat shortchanged the viewers are his ability to do miracles was simply attributed to having special gifts from the Lord instead of being the messiah and savior sent for the salvation of mankind.That matter should have been emphasized instead of arriving at the conclusion that Jesus indeed is a lot better and more authentic than Miraculo.

CGI Effects Tend To Leave The Story Behind, 6 October 2015

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

"In The Beginning" is the first episode of the remake of the Biblical animated series made by CBN or Christian Broadcasting Network known as Superbook back in the 1980's.This was made for today's generation of children.The characters involved in it are Christopher Quantum,Joy Pepper and the robot Gizmo,which are Christopher Peeper,Joy and the wound-up toy robot named Gizmo.

It starts when Chris and Gizmo are trying to eavesdrop on the door of Dr.Crispin Quantum,who apparently was busy with a new invention.Later,Joy caught them as well as the Dr. Quantum that made the laboratory dirty.As things were falling,Superbook surprisingly appeared and brought the trio - Chris,Joy and Gizmo - back in time.They find themselves at the several incidents such as: God's creation of the world;the battle between God's angels and the fallen angels that eventually led to the fall of Lucifer;meet the first man and woman in Adam and Eve; and witness the fall of man after the fruit of the forbidden tree was eaten after the successful temptation of the serpent.Their journey ends when the trio together with Adam and Eve leave the Garden of Eden.Later,the trio meet Dr. Quantum and apologized for their actions after learning the valuable lessons concerning obedience and following orders.

The new Superbook will definitely provide great CGI effects that will astound viewers from all ages.The animation is well-done.It will definitely surpass the old series which is too be expected considering it is thirty years advance. What is just somewhat discomforting about it is the story has somewhat left behind.It did not become the central part of the series.It was diminished into the background.

I feel that the Biblical stories should remain central to the story for this is what made CBN successful with the Superbook series in the 80's.Children enjoyed the stories and the characters.Don't forget the lessons learned as well.Not the CGI effects which proved to be always have the tendency to become the main attraction of the episode.Creators should not overdo them.

Added to that,a female passenger follows a handsome man on the cruise which she thinks would become a perfect man to become the father of her baby.Finally,Julie's aunt whose husband passed away has claimed to have visions of her late husband's twin or double.

This was definitely one of the funniest and humorous episodes of the show.It was nice to see Gavin McLeod in a dual role as as Marshall and Merrill Stubing. No question that he definitely can make a lot of people laugh in this particular episode.
