Storyline

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 Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

Despite the series being set on an unnamed Pacific island, it's clear from the vegetation and the terrain shown that it was in fact on the mainland of California. This is most obvious during fantasies which take place mostly in outdoor settings. See more »

Hypnotic t.v.
25 May 2002 | by WalterFrithSee all my reviews

'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.
