Bottom of the Barrel

Granted, the Love Boat is hardly the place to look for brilliance, but this two-parter is truly abysmal, IMO. The Dick Martin character/storyline is just poorly written & poorly performed. The premise of the ship being threatened by a hurricane while an incompetent boob (Martin) is in charge while Stubing takes some passengers on a small boat excursion is just not funny. The Gilligan's Islandesque sequence is actually worse. John Astin has a few funny lines, but the rest...I thought the beach shack the group was "imprisoned" in was going to fall down when the characters tried to "escape." The Luke/Leia sequence with Donna Mills & David Birney is downright creepy. Those swinging 70s!
