Fantasy Island

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

    Used to love Fantasy Island but the new series is starting to feel like a chick flick.
  • Sep 04, 2021
    Clearly this series is intended for the female audience. Two women are the ones who carry the main roles and all the stories focus around women, diversity... But no man has any main role. The 4th episode is the last one i will see. I have more important things to do than watching this atrocious and grotesque tv show.

    This is a reboot of the classic 70's show that was taken far too literally. They stuck to a formula that may have worked 50 years ago for a totally different generation, but today's audience will easily get bored with a 50-year template with no CGI or thoughtful story lines relevant to today's world. A couple of guests each episode, easily digestible and shallow fantasies, cheesy romance, low-budget sets, and no space for depth. In this tech-savvy age, they really could have glammed up everything about the show, as the possibilities are endless. The best thing about the original was removed- the mystical gentleness of the island's host. Ricardo Montalban always had a sense of otherworldly mystery and true emotional connection with the guests that is missing here. This new host seems put-upon more than anything, like she doesn't really want to be there, and her interactions with the guests lack the mysterious quality and the gentleness of the original show.

    I really like this show. I'm gonna give it a chance.

    Stumbled on to the show when I was channel surfing and for sentimental reasons I gave Fantasy Island 2021 a try. Watching the second episode of the first season made me feel more nostalgic for the original. This is what happens when apathetic amateurs are in charge, starting with the casting of Roselyn Sanchez who doesn't have the star power or charisma to fill that iconic role, at times she would mumble her lines between sips of Chardonnay. Her new side kick Kiara Barnes replacing our darling Hervé Villechaize just doesn't cut it. The new guest stars if you can call them stars are basically a bunch of talentless actors recruited off the street. The writing , directing and acting of this dinner theater production are way below the quality standards of a major Network. What would I give to watch our beloved Tattoo yell out again: "The plane!, The plane!" with that soaring music score. Watch the reruns of the original show instead, they are television gold.

    i enjoyed not knowing what the show was even about. that dark twist at the end of episode one really threw me.
  • Aug 20, 2021
    I thought it was beautiful to view, especially the ocean, island. It was a bit silly and the "magic" put me off any drama it tried for. I wanted to like it, it was nice to see the old, past stars in the OLD show, so I hope they get stars on there that are from a few years ago, see them again. I probably will not watch it, better shows are around. But may watch another episode to see if it's improved.

    I was almost afraid to watch this. I was such a fan of the original. But this one is right there. I love Roselyn Sanchez. Was a fan of hers from Devious Maids. She makes and excellent Roarke.
  • Aug 19, 2021
    This show is fantastic and honestly a breath of fresh air. The concepts are extremely fun to watch and I appreciate that they kept it episodic and true to the original Refreshing and deserving of a much better score.
