Julie Feels She Chose The Wrong Career
13 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Oldies But Goodies / Grass Is Always Greener, The / Stages of Love" is the second episode of the third season of The Love Boat. The guest stars appearing on it are Amanda Blake, Karen Morrow, Barry Sullivan, Werner Klemperer, Eddie Mekka, Lani O'Grady, Joan Hackett and Adam Rich.

Julie feels something unusual in this particular cruise of the Pacific Princess as she thinks that she made the wrong career after she meets a happily married friend who took the cruise director course with her and Captain Stubing becomes extremely friendly with her.Meanwhile,a couple are apparently experiencing the so-called three stages of love.Finally,a woman and a boyfriend-seeking daughter are among the passengers of the ship with the former getting attracted to a disabled man whose snobby and obnoxious aid becomes a hindrance to their friendship.

The love stories does seem to provide some interest despite the fact that there is nothing really new in it.Besides,Julie and the Captain once again become central characters to the story.
