At the end of October I got a copy of Fantasy Island Season 3 on DVD. I have always been a big fan of the show and have been enjoying Shout! Factory’s work on the release of the series, but with a backlog of stuff to watch I was forced to put it aside for a few weeks. Last week, I thought I would watch one episode and start working them into my rotation. That one episode turned into a marathon and in less than a week I blasted through all 23 episodes of the season. I just could not help it, I enjoy the show that much. And who could blame me.
Season Three delivers, once again, a treasure trove of phenomenal guest stars including Peter Graves (Mission Impossible), Abe Vigoda (Barney Miller, Conan), Doris Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond), Roddy McDowall (Planet Of The Apes), Don Adams (Get Smart), Sonny Bono (The Sonny & Cher Show), Dick Sargent (Bewitched), Fred Williamson (Starsky & Hutch), John Larroquette (Night Court), David Cassidy (The Partridge Family), Leslie Nielsen (The Naked Gun), Bob Denver (Gilligan’s Island), American sweetheart Annette Funicello, crooner Robert Goulet and many more!
If you are a fan of the series, you are missing out on 18 hours of Roarke fantasy magic. Sure if your busy it will cut into your sleep schedule, but when you do finally hit the pillow after watching Fantasy Island, your dreams will be of tropical islands where all your fantasies come true.
Smiles everyone, smiles!
