The show before the show
1 February 2013 | by stones78See all my reviews

This was the second pilot film before Fantasy Island became a weekly viewing pleasure to those who remember it, and it has many older stars you should recognize. There are 3 stories, and I'm not going to get into much detail about them, but most of the stars include Joseph Cotten, Adrienne Barbeau, Pat Crowley, Joe Campanella, Cameron Mitchell, and a very young Nancy McKeon. As I said above, it would take too long to go into detail about the stories; that being said, one story had a couple looking for the girl they gave up for adoption years ago, another story has a man trying to have his wealthy female boss become more interested in him and less interested in business, and the final story(probably the strongest and creepiest)has a woman seeing things that no one else does. This pilot, which came on more than a year after the first pilot, is obviously longer than the normal episode, and it does drag a bit, but the stories were well written and the performances were decent, even though Tattoo didn't do much. If you're a fan of this show, then I would recommend this pilot, mainly because the regular weekly schedule is about to begin and last quite a few years.
