What would you like to do at Fantasy Island?


If I went to Fantasy Island, I would like to go to a world with oversized animals. Eagles the size of pterodactyls that I could ride on. Rabbits the size of horses. An iguana the size of a brontosaurus. Turtles as big as army tanks. The insects would be bigger too, dragonflies would be the length of a car. Mantises would be 10 feet tall. Butterflies would be just as big as the dragonflies.

That's my idea. Some reason I think that some animals would be better if they were bigger. I may be what you call a nature freak.

On a deserted island with Adrienne Barbeau.

"On a deserted island with Adrienne Barbeau."

Good idea :-) But that was in the pilot episode where one guys fantasy was to be stranded in the wilderness with his female boss. And Adrienne Barbeau played the guys boss.

As for me, being stranded on a deserted island with Barbi Benton.

What do these ladies look like today? Isn't Adrienne Barbeau in her 60s now?

Hey bmovies, as far as your Fantasy Island visit goes is that the
Barbi Benton of 2008 or the hot Playboy model as she looked back
in the 70's? I saw her recently on the E Channel's "Girls Next Door"
and she still is very stunning in an recent reunion of playmates
from years past.

Now thats tough to decide :-)

How about both? :-)

I think I would like to be Mr. Roarke.

I read somewhere (possibly here on IMDb) that Mr. Roarke is actually supposed to represent God, and when fantasies "don't turn around as they are planned", it's because Roarke made the fantasies turn out differently in order to teach the paying guest a lesson about his/her behavior. It would be fun to help people improve themselves.

IMHO...

I remember my first love, who moved away when I was 15 years old. She was about 21 months younger than me. The memory of this perfect, beautiful, but somewhat unpopular girl haunted / haunts me for years, even the present.

I remember the beautiful seasons, the glow the whole world had when I was with her, the unanswered questions, the lack of understanding and life's mysteries, the deep and profound questions that kept me awake at nights, thinking nothing but of her -- and knowing that the relationship would end one cold morning in September, when she was moving.

Though my teenage years remained magical, my love for her was intense and my need for her after she was gone even more intense and desperate. I dreamed the impossible dream that one day we'd reunite. I felt God meant it to be. Of course, it never happened. It doesn't mean as much to me now, but the feelings were quite strong even ten and fifteen years after the relationship ended.

My fantasy?

Maybe relive the times, reexperience them as I remember or maybe as they really were.

Or maybe resolve the past, the unanswered questions and impenetrable longings. Closure? Perhaps. Not sure if I'd like a 'fantasy' of meeting her again as I idealize her, or a fantasy of reliving the past, but ultimately I'd like a dose of reality and resolution and perhaps closure. The full confidence to move forward with sound assurance that all went well and ended well and everything's OK.

Mr. Roarke, in his wisdom, would know what's best for me.

the ability to sleep with any women at any time.

Error PC LOAD LETTER's response was beautiful. Makes you wish Fantasy Island were a real place, doesn't it?

My fantasy would be to go back to 1973, when we made a huge move from my native Massachusetts to a southern state which shall remain nameless, and I suffered such culture shock that it has affected me ever since then. I'd want to go back in time and see if there were some way I could prevent that move from ever happening. (Well, maybe that's more of a "Quantum Leap"-type plot, since Mr. Roarke would never let me change anything. Maybe my hope is to see what good, if anything, came out of that move. Oh well.)

Secondarily, I'd like to just revisit 1970, 1971 and 1972, to refresh my fading memories of those years before the move. And thirdly, I'd sort of like to be a little advisor on my own shoulder during my horrible high-school years, giving my teenage self smart responses to all the persecution and verbal torturing I went through during those years. Nice dreams, huh? :)

My fantasy would also be to be forever young and back in the 70s and maybe also 80s again. But on the other hand, I've seen the show too much and I wouldn't go to the island. You never really get what you want. The OP in this thread who wants to be with oversized animals would probably find himself desperately trying to avoid becoming a meal. The ones who want to be with women might find them beautiful but intolerably abrasive. You might give your younger self smart comebacks and get him beaten up by angry bullies instead.

If I could go back in time on Fantasy Island, I'm sure I would regret it. All of a sudden, I'm back in the 70s. The only way to watch TV programs is on over the air broadcasts with sometimes lousy reception. A whole seven channels worth. No DVDs or even pre-recorded videocassettes. You forget to watch and you've missed it unless it's rerun. Likewise movies only in theaters. I'd like to think TV schedules were nice and full back then, but perusing old TV Guides shows there were plenty of times where there was nothing I wanted to watch. There is no Internet, no email, no IMDb. In short, very few other distractions. The only personal computers are expensive and very primitive. Basically the only way to contact anyone is to call them on the phone, which is an expensive proposition, charged by the minute even for local calls. I really can't imagine what lesson Roarke would have in store for me.

reply

My Fatasy would be to go back and be in every episode that Barbi Benton appeared in. I especially would love to go back and take Bert Convy's place when he judged her in the beauty contest. No woman ever looked better in a bikini.

reply

Mr. Roarke would've called you a tool, and refused your fantasy.

I'd like to spend my time on Fantasy Island with someone who looks like Sophia Vergara.

reply

Have dates with Telly Savalas and a young Robert Redford. And stay 125 pounds without ever having to count a calorie again.

Actors are mere products of a good writer's imagination

I'd have a modest fantasy that I'd hope would carry over once off the island. I'd be a best selling author, not the one that is over-looked because my publisher has "bigger fish to fry". I'd like to see at least three of my books become movies, with decent scripts. I don't ask it for me. My husband has been the bread winner for nearly thirty years. I want him to ease up a bit and enjoy life and only have the need to work at one job instead of the two he has now. Everybody wants lurid and salacious tales. My books are pretty family friendly.

I would be afraid to go to Fantasy Island. I have plenty of fantasies. But they probably would be turned around to teach me a serious lesson.

reply

My fantasy would be to relive 1978 as a beautiful, popular woman in southern California. I'd be 18 years old, and would met the handsome man who'd fall in love with me. We'd marry, and somehow grow no older than 25 years old. We wouldn't have children (by choice). We wouldn't age, but would get wiser, wealthier, and kinder through the years.
