Shipper episode
30 May 2008 | by katfoSee all my reviews

I re-watched this TV movie last night. It was the first time in almost 30 years, since I've seen it. What I found interesting in this version, is that Pete seems to be hinting to Linc, that he made "mistakes" in his relationship with Julie. Although he never says her name, he tells Linc, about how he has made "mistakes". This is something that I never noticed, when I first saw the movie. There is also scene when Pete and Linc are dropping Julie off and are watching her walk away from them. Pete makes a comment about how he wished had made different choices. In several scenes, Pete is watching Julie and you can see the expression in his face that he is having "wishful thinking".
