Critics Consensus

Fantasy Island's flights of fancy aren't quite formed enough to make it a must-watch, but viewers looking for beautiful vistas and a bit of mystery could do worse.

Critic Reviews for Fantasy Island: Season 1

Audience Reviews for Fantasy Island: Season 1

  • Jan 24, 2023
    Boring You think with all the special effects they can do nowadays they would have better fantasies Might as well watch the old one it's about the same
  • Apr 26, 2022
    What audience is this silly drivel meant for? Apart from the lovely locales and some beautiful ladies, nothing here worth recommending.
  • Dec 28, 2021
    There is no reason for this to exist, but they tried. I did a search and it was renewed for Season 2, perhaps they will do better for season 2. The original show was interesting for some reason I can't put my finger on, this one has a long way to go to have a reason to exist.
  • Dec 24, 2021
    Another remake that should not have happened.
  • Dec 09, 2021
    Nothing like Fantasy Island I found this series to be drab and inane in so many ways!!
  • Oct 06, 2021
    This is a good series to reboot, and they made it fresh, with good characters..This show will allow a lot of room for all types of fantasies and I hope it is as successful as the original series..

    I grew up watching the original series, and even as a young girl at the time, I found Mr. Roarke mysterious and alluring. At first I thought the new twist of having his niece take over his duties was a nice modern twist. After watching the first few episodes, however, I find that the new version focuses too much on the main characters. If you learn too much about the main characters upfront, the story line soon gets inane. For longevity and interest, the writing needs to focus on the visitors coming to the island and the story line needs to be broadened to appeal to a wider audience rather than a small demographic. I am almost angry at how the writers tainted such a classic series. The new series is consumed with Ruby's desire to be with women, and coupled with the episode, "The Romance and the Bromance" it was just too much. I know this is 2021, but the allure of the original is what people are expecting and wanting. We could all use an evening on Fantasy Island and escape for a while, especially now. However, I'm already bored. I initially set my DVR to record the new series thinking I would just automatically love it. Ironically, my DVR started recording the original series as well, and I started watching those instead. Even with the blurry picture and outdated sound, I fell in love with Mr. Rourke again.

    A superb first season of FANTASY ISL∀ND, really hope to see many more seasons. The series is fueled by the outstanding performances from Roselyn Sánchez and Kiara Barnes, the gorgeous scenery, the spectacular concept, and staying faithful to the original series while still being able to modernize it and stand on it's own. Also the costumes are excellent and the guest performances from Dave Annable, Odette Annable, Leslie Jordan, and Eric Winter were great.

    Fantasy Island producer needs to move on from the women's having sexual fantasies and the writers seeking to make this a night time soap opera for women. The stories need to be more along the lines of "life changing events" only able to obtain on Fantasy Island. Ruby's character needs a more supportive part or 'walk away'. As each episode of Fantasy Island unfurls, it's clear the show concentrates more on the characters experience than those visiting the island. It's plain! It's plain!
  • Sep 21, 2021
    Typically I like shows of this genre and I enjoyed the 90's version of this show as well, but this iteration feels like it was created by 'progressive' women for 'progressive' women and it's not connecting with me at all. Or my wife, she hates it too. They took away all the cleverness of the original show. It's just not good.
