Julie's High School Reunion
5 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Love Boat: Alas, Poor Dwyer/After the War/Itsy Bitsy/Ticket to Ride/Disco Baby: Part 1 is the first part of the seventeenth episode of the second season of The Love Boat.The actors and actresses appearing as guest stars in this two-part episode are Raymond Burr, Michael Cole, Kim Darby, Bob Denver, Conchata Ferrell, Christopher George, Lisa Hartman, Michael Lembeck, Kelly Monteith, John Rubinstein, Judi West and David Landsberg.

The two-part episode focuses on a lot of events particularly Julie's ten-year high school reunion that will be held in the Pacific Princess.She meets her high school teacher who is currently struggling with alcoholism.Also,we get to see Julie and her old sweetheart rekindle their old romance who is currently in a relationship with her high school rival.She also learns that her old high school friend and recently divorced Wendy is on board who was given a ticket by an admirer.Many other things happen as this two- part episode unfolds.

Just what I have stated,Julie's romantic life has become a focus of the many episode of the show.But nevertheless,the fact that she is having her high school reunion on board and meeting people she knew from the past makes it more interesting.
