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

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 this required that television sets be correctly color adjusted - something in 1983 with dozens of television makers and in an era without cable or satellite was unthinkable.

I bought this for my wife, she waited with anticipation for the release date.
If it is not a part of your early teen years it may not appeal to you, as this is all about pleasant memory's.
There is a short but interesting documentary on the DVD set that gives some in-site to how the show came about.
The episodes them-self,for me, are a gentle reminder of how bad and corny and good T.V. was back then. A blast to watch and I really enjoy these as back ground visual and verbal noise as I study.On a good day I will sit and pay attention to the episodes. This is TV folks and it shows, but we liked it then and I enjoy the feelings it brings about now.
