This is a very solid episode that has two very good segments, and that is a pleasant surprise from the usual formula that has one weak, one solid story. There's a whole bunch of familiar faces that include Don Stroud, Maureen McCormick, George Maharis, Belinda Montgomery, Britt Ekland, Rosemary Forsythe, and Nehemiah Persoff. In what must've been rare for a 1980 show, both stories centered on angry women hunting men, although Forsythe's character(Dr. Melanie Griffin)didn't seem to intend that to happen, but Roarke warned her about the dangers of her fantasy. I probably would've been scared back then seeing her turn into a very scary looking woman chasing down poor Ross(Stroud)with a knife. I don't know too much about Forsythe, but she excels in this role, especially a very weird dance she does on the island, to which even Roarke is surprised. Back to Stroud, the reason he's being chased away is because he's chasing Jennifer(McCormick), who's Melanie's younger sister; in real life, he's 13 years older, so that makes him a manther! The other story was good too, although it's the typical "perfect woman" fantasy, and it stars Maharis, who gets more than he bargained for when he meets Aphrodite, played by Ekland; oddly enough, it looked like Maharis was wearing dark eyeliner. This story was the lesser of the 2, and contained one cheesy special effect, but it was still good enough to recommend. Something I've noticed as the series moves forward is the lack of face time for Tattoo, compared to earlier episodes. Not that I want to see or hear him that often, but it seems his role has been cut back a bit.
