In the original 1977 series, “Fantasy Island was 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.”
