When one Robert Goulet isn't enough
16 October 2014 | by stones78See all my reviews

I feel the most notable aspect of this episode is the dual performance of Robert Goulet, who plays himself, as one of him wants to be rich, and the other him wishes to be left alone. I thought he did a decent job at both roles, and displayed some acting chops, even though I know little of Goulet, other than his singing. The other faces include Britt Eklund, Phyllis Davis, and an odd appearance by Troy Donahue. Nothing that memorable happens in this segment, but all's well that ends well, as I liked the forced, but satisfying conclusion. The other story stars James Broderick(one of his final acting credits), Laurie Walters, and Woody Strode, as it revolves around a doctor trying to bring back his dead wife. I'm not an psychology expert, but I didn't sense any real chemistry between Broderick and Walters, and this segment was a bit predictable as well. This wasn't a bad story, but it did seem rushed, and the ending wasn't a big payoff either, but it did end nicely. I've also noticed that these middle seasons use Mr. Roarke much more than before, and while that's not a bad thing in general, it does take some of his mystique away.
