A Welcome Change For Doc
The Captain's Cup/The Folks from Home/Legal Eagle is the eleventh episode of the second season of The Love Boat.Stars appearing in it are Bert Convy, Pat Harrington Jr., Florence Henderson, John McIntire, Jeanette Nolan, Leigh Taylor-Young, Cisse Cameron, George Petrie and Chris Capen.
During the cruise,Doc needs to perform a risky operation after an accident occurred as it involves an older couple from his hometown.Meanwhile,a woman who is in charge of the presentation of the Captain's Cup asked an engineer to pose as an executive who wasn't able to show up in the cruise so as not to disappoint Captain Stubing.Finally,a divorced man gets hooked up with the divorce lawyer of his ex-wife.
The episode gets to feature Doc do something related to his profession rather than romancing any of the pretty passengers during the cruise which becomes a welcome change for the viewers.
Cruise Should Continue Being Ethan Hunt As Long As His Knees Hold Up
Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol is a spy film, and the fourth installment in the Mission: Impossible series. It stars Tom Cruise, who reprises his role of IMF Agent Ethan Hunt,together with Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg and Paula Patton.It is director Brad Bird's first live-action film.It is the first Mission: Impossible movie to be partially filmed using IMAX cameras.
This is not just another mission. The IMF is shut down when it's implicated in a global terrorist bombing plot. Ghost Protocol is initiated and Ethan Hunt and his rogue new team must go undercover to clear their organization's name. No help, no contact, off the grid. You have never seen a mission grittier and more intense than this Mission Impossible film franchise,better known as "The Ethan Hunt Show" of Cruise.
Stylish, fast-paced, and loaded with gripping set pieces, this big- budget popcorn entertainment really works for Tom Cruise fans.Brad Bird passes his audition for a career as a live-action director. Aside from that, this also more than makes its bones as an argument for why Tom Cruise should continue in this role as long as his knees, and his nerves, hold up especially for very young fans of the new generation of Mission Impossible who unfortunately never had the chance to witness the classic series back in the 1960's and the excellent remake TV series during the 80's.
As Usual,Men Try To Romance Julie
Heads or Tails/Mona of the Movies/The Little People is the tenth episode of the second season of The Love Boat.Stars appearing as guest on this episode are Rhonda Fleming,Orson Bean,Richard Gilliland, Adam Arkin, Billy Barty, Patty Maloney and Patty McCormack.
The stories that happened in today's cruise are the following: a movie queen clashes with a businessman;two swingers try to compete for Julie's love and attention;a man treats his parents to a cruise for their 25th wedding anniversary and in the process romances a lady with whom he works with but later realizes that she has inconveniences and discomfort when she is around people.
As always,familiar themes in a typical Love Boat episode appears in this episode like men falling for Julie,incompatible would-be couples and a quarrel between egotistical characters.But nevertheless,one watched the show for the would-be guests rather than the stories.
Maps to the Stars (2014)
Life In Hollywood
This film could have been a masterpiece.Or even a classic about life in Hollywood from themes about money,fame,envy and emotional scars.
The presentation of the Weiss family was definitely compelling as we get to meet each one who is making his/her way in Hollywood.There is Stafford Weiss,a famed TV self-help therapist who serves A-list actors and actresses.We also meet Christina Weiss,who works as a manager to a child star who just got out of rehab age 13 named Benjie.But definitely,the most interesting among them happens to be Agatha,a mysteriously tormented and scarred daughter who was just released from a pscyh ward.She goes back in town to re-unite with her family and to seek redemption for herself. As I describe these characters,we could have been treated to a great film.But unfortunately,it wasn't what it was suppose to be.
Too bad that as the story progressed,it loses its tonality as we get to see different genres of films that are being put up together in the story that complicated its message.Too bad that it failed to find a common tone and theme that the viewer could identify with.Too bad that we get exposed too much the negative aspects of the characters that a potential turn off is possible.
It was a good thing that the acting provided a lot for the beauty of the film.We see great performances from the likes of Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska,John Cusack,Sarah Gadon,Olivia Williams,Robert Pattinson and also Carrie Fisher,who played herself.It practically saved the family to becoming a good one in the end.
A Minister Romances An Exotic Dancer
"Man of the Cloth / Her Own Two Feet / Tony's Family" is the ninth episode of the second season of The Love Boat.Guest stars appearing in it are June Allyson, Vivian Blaine, Peter Graves, Van Johnson, Roz Kelly, Larry Storch, Alan Young, Mitzi Hoag, Tony La Torre, Renata Vanni, Mario Bellini, Jennifer Surprenant and Kelly Greenwood.
The stories that occur in the cruise are the following: a minister falls for an exotic dancer which disgusts the female parishioner who does something to break them up;a wife denies her blindness and her husband tries to help her cope up with it and accept her disability; and a chief engineer has his entire family stow away on board.
This is an entertaining episode especially the romance between the minister and the exotic dancer.Mission Impossible star Peter Graves definitely provided laughs as Reverend Gerald Whitney.As for the rest of the stories,they were alright.
Mission: Impossible (1988)
A Great Remake Of The Classic Series
Mission: Impossible is a television series that chronicles the missions of a team of secret American government agents known as the Impossible Missions Force (IMF). The show is a revival of the 1966 TV series of the same name. The only actor to return for the series as a regular cast member was Peter Graves who played Jim Phelps, although two other cast members from the original series (Greg Morris and Lynda Day George) returned as guest stars.The other regular cast includes Thaao Penghlis, Tony Hamilton,Phil Morris,Terry Markwell,who only appeared in the first season, and Jane Badler.Bob Johnson was the voice of "The Disc".
The events of the series take place 15 years after the last season of the original Mission: Impossible TV series. After his protégé and successor as leader of the top-secret Impossible Missions Force is killed, Jim Phelps is called out of retirement and asked to form a new IMF team and track down the assassin.His team consists of Nicholas Black, a disguise expert and actor; Max Harte, a strongman; Casey Randall, a model-turned-agent; and Grant Collier, the son of Barney Collier, the IMF's original technology expert, and a technical genius in his own right. After finding the killer, Jim decides to stay on and keep the team together. Midway through season 1, Casey is killed during a mission (becoming the first ongoing IMF agent to be disavowed), and Secret Service agent Shannon Reed replaces her for the remainder of the series. With the exception of this cast change, Phelps' team remains constant throughout the series.
This show does not live up to the original Mission Impossible series of the 1960's.But not every remake will be better than the original for that was a classic series.Nevertheless,this may not be a classic but it still should be considered an excellent series.It definitely gave birth to Mission Impossible fans to the new generation.Added to that,it will still a good show to watch despite the fact that it only lasted two seasons.
Compared to the Mission Impossible films made by Tom Cruise,I still prefer this series considering that it still fun to see the IMF team work as a team and the integrity of Jim Phelps to remain intact.It was definitely a travesty to see the first Mission Impossible film by Cruise turn Jim Phelps into a villain in order to make the Tom Cruise character - Ethan Hunt - the primary IMF agent and the rest of the films become primarily "The Ethan Hunt Show".
Mission: Impossible: Reprisal (1989)
Lisa Casey Joins To Help IMF Team
Reprisal happens to be a very special episode for me.First of all,we get to see the special appearance of one of the original stars of the original Mission Impossible series in Lynda Day George,who portrays the memorable Lisa Casey.Also,we get to witness on the creepiest and formidable opponents of the Impossible Mission Force (IMF) in Russell Acker.
In this episode,we get to see an imprisoned Russell Acker tries to frame Jim Phelps by targeting and killing retired IMF agents.Upon knowing the murders,the IMF gives Jim only little time to prove his innocence or they must turn him over to the authorities.Retired IMF Agent Lisa Casey becomes the next target for Acker and she works with Jim and the current IMF team to bring him down which predictably they did in the end.
It nice to see Lynda Day George appear apparently in his final acting job before she retired as an actress.Evidently,she still provided a strong performance in it especially in the conclusion when Acker tried to strangle Casey at the end.Many of her fans definitely miss her.Credit also must be given to David Cameron in his performance as Russell Acker.
A "Ghost"-like Story
Till Death Do Us Part-Maybe/Locked Away/Chubs is the eighth episode of the second season of The Love Boat.Guest stars include Melissa Sue Anderson, Conrad Bain, Jamie Lee Curtis, Janet Leigh, Greg Morris, Jimmie Walker, Vernee Watson-Johnson, Peter Coffield, Bebe Drake, Raymond Allen and Deney Terrio.
The passengers in the cruise includes: a widow who is unknowingly followed by her husband's ghost after she wasn't able to overcome his death and tries to set her up with another passenger; a divorced couple who sees their daughter; and Gopher's sister who gets to know Doc.
The widow's story is somehow memorable considering this has become a popular premise in many movies like the hit movie "Ghost" back in 1990's and many other romance movies.Also,it was nice to see Janet Leigh and Jamie Lee Curtis,who happen to be real-life mother and daughter,play mother and daughter in this episode as well.
Vicki Comes On Board
A Time for Everything/The Song Is Ended/Accidental Cruise/Anoushka is the seventh episode during the second season of The Love Boat.Guest stars include Soupy Sales, Jo Anne Worley, Richard Dawson, Juliet Mills, Robert Goulet, Jill Whelan, Melendy Britt and Loretta Swit.
The stories in this 90-minute episode includes; a romance between an executive and his secretary;Captain Stubing takes charge of Vicki,his orphaned child of his former love; and a stern Russian cruise director tries to renew his image.
We get introduced to Vicki,the orphaned child of Captain Stubing's former love.Definitely,she will become one of the most memorable characters of the show and greatly portrayed by Jill Whelan.
The Love Boat: Ship of Ghouls (1978)
Gopher And Doc Romance The Same Woman
"Ship of Ghouls" is the sixth episode of the second season of The Love Boat.Guest stars include Iris Adrian, Charlie Aiken, Barbara Anderson, Joan Blondell, Gary Collins, Jane Kean, Mary Ann Mobley, Bibi Osterwald, Vincent Price, Maureen Reagan and Larry Gelman.
The passengers of the cruise includes an illusionist who on demand;two recently reunited parents who are having trouble stopping their son from telling tall tales;and Julie's friend who happens to be a model was recently scarred physically and psychologically is being romanced by both Doc and Gopher.
The episode managed to entertaining especially as we get to see both Doc and Gopher romance a model who has issues in life.
