Fun to see some child stars ,otherwise typical Fantasy Island schlock
17 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode was fun if just to see Scott Baio ,his brother Jimmy and Jill Whelan when she also starring on the Love Boat as Vicki .Also Keith Coogan when he was a cute little 9 yo kid -their fantasy is to be rock stars. Also starring Ted Lange aka Isaac of the Love Boat as a father of one of the kids who is a magician in another fantasy of kids running an amusement park. Overall it's typical Fantasy Island schlock , one thing that is different though is the way the guests arrive on the island , not by plane but by hot air balloon , they also leave the same way. Of an interesting note , the plot of the rock star segment which involves the kids lip synching to songs they wrote to impress a music industry executive is an eerie premonition of real life group Milli Vanilli 10 yrs later which also involved the artists lip synching but unlike the happy ending on Fantasy Island where the kids fess up during their audition and end up with a contract to write songs for a hot new artist ,the 2 guys Rob Pilatus and Fab Morvan of Milli Vanilli went along with the charade and then eventually got exposed as frauds and tragically Rob committed suicide 8 years later. It's bizarre how some TV shows and movies have foreshadowed future events.
