Women Holding More Responsibilities
15 May 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Getting Started/Daughter's Dilemma/The Captain Wears Pantyhose" is the 19th episode of the eighth season of The Love Boat.The actors and actresses appearing on this episode are Cathy Lee Crosbyk,James A. Osmond,Karen Kopins,Tracy Reed,Bernie Hamilton and Esther Rolle.

The Pacific Princess goes into another exciting cruise with a new set of passengers on board.First,we see the Captain fail in testing for a captaincy of the ship.Then,we get to see another boy who is convinced that his father's surprise birthday gift for him happens to be a prostitute.Finally,a female passenger is not in favor of her father's on-going romance with a female passenger on board.

This episode can be interesting if we haven't seen some of the plots before in previous seasons.Too bad that there are some that has already happened in previous episodes like secrets of family members aboard and the on-going romances among passengers.Added to that,we also get to see the same on-going stories new crew members.The only thing that would probably surprise the viewer is the fact that women start holding more responsibilities in companies which was a major change in society during the 80's.
