A wealthy mystery man named Charlie runs a detective agency via a speakerphone and his personal assistant, John Bosley. His detectives are three beautiful women, who end up in a variety of difficult situations.
Fantasy Island is a unique resort in the Pacific Ocean, where there is very little that the mysterious overseer, Mr. Roarke, cannot provide. Visitors can experience adventures that should be impossible, but this island can deliver. 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

During the early part of the series, a Jeep CJ-7 was used to get around. In the later episodes, a customized 1976 Plymouth Volare station wagon was used. See more »
The "lagoon" where the seaplane arrives bringing each week's guests has no tide, nor wave action. In fact, it is so placid and calm that it is clearly a large pond on a controlled set and not the waterway on or near an island. See more »

'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.
