  • Andy's ex-girlfriend now a big time country singer comes back to ask him if he wants to be with her permanently.

    8.0
    Every sitcom seems to have one of these "love" episodes where a character's past is revealed usually by the way of a former lover.



    This time it was Andy whose ex-girlfriend comes back to town to see him. Things are different now she is up and coming country singer on the set of stardom. Andy must decide whether to follow his heart and go with her as a singer or stay with WKRP.



    Seems like a no brainer doesn't it. I would have followed the singer in a heartbeat. Barrie Youngfellow who was a beautiful woman in her own does the part of Linda Taylor well.



    This is one of a few WKRP episodes where I didn't buy the ending at all. It was very unrealistic. How many times in one's life does someone get a golden opportunity to live a dream and get the girl at the same time? Almost never.



    Andy's decision at the end of the episode to not go with Linda makes absolutely no sense at all.



    It's even more puzzling when as a couple of more episodes show is that Andy isn't that happy or happy at all working at WKRP. It's still a nice episode with strong acting by the cast and Gary Sand, but the ending is tacked on and unrealistic.moreless
