A newlywed with the ability to communicate with the earthbound spirits of the recently deceased overcomes skepticism and doubt to help send their important messages to the living and allow the dead to pass on to the other side.

Fantasy Island is a resort, where there is very little that the host, Mr. Roarke cannot provide. Thus we have visitors have adventures in fantasies that should be impossible, but this island can accommodate them such as visits to any time period they want, meet absolutely anyone they see to do something they request such as getting William Shakespeare to write a play for them. The only constant (until the final season) was at the sight of the incoming visitors, the Mr. Roarke's midget assistant runs up to the bell tower to ring the bell and shout "De plane!, De plane!"

When 3-D was revived in the early 1980s, some thought was given to shooting an entire episode in 3-D. The problem was that Anaglyphic glasses (tinted glasses) could not be used because it required that TV sets be correctly color adjusted - something in 1983 with dozens of TV makers and in an era without cable or satellite was unthinkable.

'Fantasy Island' was a show that remained an enigma as far as its main character was concerned. Ricardo Montalban's Mr. Roarke was a well dressed mystery man who, for a price, could make your fantasy come true on his tropical island and every week, a new group of characters would come to the island and a few different stories would evolve. As quality television, it didn't get a lot of respect from its peers but it was one of those cult like shows that had a following that seemed to die off quickly which explains why its almost impossible to find it anywhere in syndication. I enjoyed it mildly but it was by no means classic television.
