Romantic Stories In Today's Episode
16 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Return of the Ninny / Touchdown Twins / Split Personality" is the 19th episode of the 4th season of The Love Boat. The list of guest stars includes Michael Lembeck, Larry Linville, Samantha Eggar, Vincent Van Patten, Rachel Jacobs, Laurette Spang, Charo, Ralph Bellamy, Alex Woodard, Natasha Martell and Philip Brown.

The charges of April and herself get on board at Pacific Princess secretly while her employer and new fiancée are in it as well.They try to avoid them but it proved to be unlucky as the groups meet each other. Meanwhile,Gopher's college friend shows one personality to a boss and a different one for the another boss' daughter without knowing that they themselves are actually related as father and daughter. Finally,two college football friends go on the cruise with the mother of one of them.Later,we get to see the mother become the affection of the other.

Well,we are treated once again to another romantic episode showing love stories two of the three that is regularly shown.But it was nice and fun viewing it despite the fact that the comedy formula is far from original for it has been used before in other TV shows.
