Burt Reynolds guest stars!
13 November 2012 | by mitchrmpSee all my reviews

Ulla, the woman with the yellow submarine is back in this episode, but she doesn't plan to give Porter any problems. Still, indirectly she still comes in conflict with the Rick's family when Al Bardeman, played by Burt Reynolds (Gunsmoke fame is where I know him best, but he's been in a lot of movies as well), stills first the Ranger Boat, then the submarine.

This episode is the first of two parts where Flipper and the boys try to help capture a criminal. Of course stories about being left stranded on a desert island always hold some appeal, but this really isn't one of those stories.

I don't want to give too many details away, but we get a pretty good mix of Bud, Sandy, Dad, Ulla, and Burt. Of course unlike Gunsmoke, we don't get to see a buffy Burt but he's still pretty good looking all the same!
