New Mexico pianist Dan O'Dwyer travels back to Tin Pan Alley to find and recover his grandfather Jeremy Todd's never-published songs; soap-opera actress Gina Edwards wants to stop her evil character ...
Fantasy Island is a unique resort in the Pacific Ocean, where there is very little that the mysterious overseer, Mr. Roarke, cannot provide. Thus, we have visitors have adventures that should be impossible, but this island can accommodate them such as visits to any time period they want or meet absolutely anyone they want see to do something they request. However, what actually happens is often far more than they expect as they face challenges that test their character in ways they never imagined. Written by

Robert Firth portrayed a caveman in Love Island/The Sisters, during season 6. The initial outdoor sequences were filmed at Bronson Canyon - a local Hollywood park that was littered with broken glass and debris. During the exterior scenes many of the actors, playing cavemen, vocalized their concerns about the location - the scenes required them to perform barefoot. In an effort to avoid going over schedule, the actor's worries were dismissed. Faced with this resistance, Firth quickly organized the performers and insisted that unless or until some sort of footwear could be provided, the filming should be postponed. In the end, suede sandals were distributed from the wardrobe department at Warner Brothers Studios. See more »

Originally, this show had a dark side to it which quickly disappeared. The dark side was replaced with silly problems brought on by it's "guest stars." Think of any washed up movie star and they made an appearance on this show. The exotic locale helped, with the plane bringing that week's stars to the island, flying over waterfalls, and mountains along the way. Mr. Roarke would always greet his guests and then turn to Tattoo and say something ominous to him about one of this weeks fantasies, just so we'd stay tuned. This was essentially a landlocked "Love Boat." It was harmless fluff and part of my formative years...how scary is that?
