Morgan Brittany Appears As Guest
27 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Command Performance / Hyde and Seek / Sketchy Love" is the fourth episode of the sixth season of The Love Boat. The guest stars that are appearing on it are Dana Andrews, Janet Blair, Morgan Brittany, Eve Plumb, Kim Richards, Marion Ross, Dan Rowan and Skip Stephenson.

Once again,we meet interesting passengers in the Pacific Princess.First,we meet a woman who pretends to be Gopher's older sister.Actually,it is not true and she does this because she is attracted to him.Secondly,a comedian experiences a reunion with his wife and daughter whom she left twenty years ago.Finally,an unhappy married female passenger meets a female passenger whom he is attracted with.

The stories are practically the same and comparable to the former episodes as always.Predictable.Humorous.Ordinary.But it was surprising to see Morgan Brittany appear as guest star.She now no longer acts but speaks more for Conservative values as she regularly appears at FOX News as a political commentator.For acting,she was best remembered for her role at Dallas.It was fun to see her once again as the female passenger attracted to the unhappily married man.
