Part 2 of my conversation with guest Ric Dube as we climb aboard and dissect an episode of The Love Boat. I've also got the Bonehead of the Week and music from Pile and They Might Be Giants.

Show notes:

- Recorded at More Lost Time world HQ

- Inspired by MST3K and Rifftrax, we're commenting while watching video

- Watch the episode along with us at the CompCon YouTube channel

- Jay: Used to watch Love Boat and Fantasy Island back to back

- Both shows featured cameos from so-called stars

- Episode 23 from season 1, 1978

- Featured Paul Williams, Michele Lee, Marcia Wallace

- Gopher went on to be a Congressman

- Romantic hijinks ensue each week

- Cartoonish male chauvinism

- Let the wacky subplots begin

- Love American Style was the predecessor to The Love Boat

- Booked to the gunnels

- The mysterious sexual allure of Bernie Kopell

- Julie just wants to get some

- The show's like bad improv

- Marcia Wallace is comic relief

- Dick Van Patten played Doc in the Love Boat pilot

- Capt. Stubing is the cruise ship Pepe Le Pew

- The third act results in partner switching

- Paul Williams gets the hot chick

- Gopher nailed Mrs. Krabappel

- Bonehead of the Week

Music:
Pile - Prom Song

They Might Be Giants - Call You Mom
