I totally agree with Patrick G! I love watching a show with fun escape and a positive lesson.

I think the harsh comments from other people in this thread are mostly underserved. You cannot expect the new “Fantasy Island” to be the same show it was in the 1970’s. That was decades ago, and this new version needs to appeal to a totally different audience that has a myriad of viewing options. I much prefer this “Fantasy Island” to all the stupid reality and game shows we are being force-fed as an audience these days! It’s refreshing to see a title and premise that is familiar yet new at the same time. My only problem is with Elena Rourke. I think the new Tattoo character is much more interesting and feel Rourke should have remained a male. Switching them both to female leads is too “woke” for me!! Plus, the actress playing Rourke is pretty awful and should go back to acting school! Find the original Mr. Rourke’s long lost son and replace Elena with him! If not, the weakness of both this female lead and the ratings suggest that this new FI will be canceled. Which would be a shame!

UGH -- all I can say is UGH and yuck. My husband and I are from the generation who never missed an episode of the original. We didn't like that there was always a moral lesson at the end, but they were fun shows, great scenery and lots of guest stars. After watching the first episode, we were one and done. It was nasty, graphic, sad and just depressing (especially the story about keeping the dying wife on the island and tearing her away from her family!). Who needs to watch a diva eating her weight in food either. So took it off my DVR recording schedule and moving on. I cannot imagine it will last. What demographic are they trying to appeal to anyway?

this was terrible we won't be watching it again!

Ricardo Montalban "made" the original Fantasy Island.
Plus all the popular stars of the day (and some from the past) showing up as guest stars.
(From the few minutes I've seen so far, totally lacks the campy charm of the original.)

1. Woke news
2. Reality and competition
3. Talk shows
4. Shows with woke agenda
5. Soap operas
When I break down the crap, soap operas can rate better than I thought.

Steve S. Try IMDB. Roselyn Sanchez(Roarke) is the main character

This obviously won't interest me even though I saw bits of the hundred+ episodes in the original. I tried to see who was in it but the previews are literally nothing except a second with only Roselyn Sanchez. I think the main "star" is Kiara Barnes but the Fox show website can't even produce a photo of her. Very weird and lame. About what I expect from a soap opera.

Retnan's probably right. We'll see what Fox does with it... can see it bombing though.

This would probably be cooler off network tv where you could have more sex and violence.
