1x0: The New Love Boat recap: Gavin McLeod stars as Captain Merrill Stubing, making his first voyage on the Princess, whose interest in a beautiful young woman he thinks is a passenger, serves to link the lives of the crew members and passengers in a very personal way. What the very proper Stubing does not know is that the woman, Cleo, is a stowaway. Also starring are Bernie Kopell as Dr. Adam Bricker, Fred Grandy as Burl "Gopher" Smith, the assistant purser, Ted Lange as Isaac Washington, the ship's steward, and Lauren Tewes as Julie McCoy, the cruise director.
As the Princess sets out to sea, some of the crew members are in a panic. First, they've heard that their new captain is a veritable Attila the Hun. Secondly, Gopher, who has had a run-in with Stubing, discovers that his girlfriend, Cleo, has smuggled herself aboard. Then the captain orders Julie to produce Cleo at his table. He wants to meet her. Many of the passengers become involved in the crew members' frantic efforts to conceal Cleo's stowaway status from Captain Stubing.
Guesting as passengers are Stella Stevens and Pat Harrington, Jr. as Leonora and Ernie Klopman, whose holiday is marred by their personal problems; Phil Silvers as Morris Beekman, an old and very sad widower who seems out of place in all the frantic festivity; Audra Lindley as Mae Allen, an older lady who unsuccessfully hides her age behind a bad wig, garish clothes, tons of makeup and a boisterous personality; Gary Frank and Melanie Mayron as Stanley and Joyce Adams, a very shy, just-married couple. Georgia Engel plays the stowaway, Cleo. Gavin MacLeod comes to this new series after several seasons of playing Murray Slaughter in "The Mary Tyler Moore Show.".. read more.
