The Captain sending Gofer outside in the hurricane to check the roof. If the roof had been damaged, they would have noticed it inside the shack - it did not have a ceiling. Even if it did, the rain would have come pouring in. Plus, even if the roof had been damaged, they couldn't do anything about it during the storm. See more »

second review so far, couldn't be more different
2 July 2010 | by Stu-42See all my reviews

I guess I was watching a different episode... After watching the entire first season and loving it I just got the second season and began with this clunker of a 2 parter. Easily the worst so far, I can only say that they must have been trying something new for the 2nd season and swung and missed. Almost every single thing missed the mark here culminating in an absolutely puzzling climax with the soap opera star and his mother. Very few highlights: Julie being made fun of by the captain and the discovery with Dick Martin at the end. ONLY for Love Boat completists, everyone else stay FAR away. I'm only hoping that after this fiasco the crew returns to their regular goofy lovable selves.
