Somewhat One Of the Most Unique Episodes
9 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

There was a time I tried sorting out what three stories played out on Love Boat episodes, so I did here.

The standout here obviously is Billy Crystal as a masked kissing bandit, done in an amusing manner, as well as it being Billy Crystal doing the nefarious deed. At this time, he was more a TV star of sorts, nothing big in films. That would come along later. So as I recalled this episode, I remembered the very entertaining pairing (or it seemed entertaining) of Nancy Kulp and Pat Carroll as two nervous old ninnies sailing on the ship (They're 'storyline', if it could be called that, basically would run along the same lines as Ann Davis and Jane Withers in their appearance, as well as Mary Treen and Meg Wyllie when they sailed). Yet I couldn't remember who the third story in this episode might be.

Rather startling later when I finally saw the episode to see Todd Bridges, Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr, along with Toni Tennille and Robert Reed? -- All crammed in the same episode.

Didn't remember their stories.

So Laurie Walters of Eight Is Enough becomes the object of Billy Crystal's affections.

In rewatching this episode, perhaps the most intriguing part is Capt. Stubing pursuing a woman (Sharon Ackers).

In the end, the biggest clunker of this episode is Tennille and Reed being used in such an overly serious, dramatic episode. Rather tiresome.

Shame she didn't end up singing with Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr, but oh, well.

Still a very unique episode for the show.
