Welcome Back To Fantasy Island!

Why should movie studios have all the fun? Television should be allowed to produce remakes too! And that is just what the Sony Pictures Television studio and producer Mark Burnett are doing.

Fantasy Island, the classic late 70s TV show, will now be turned into a competitive reality show. This new island show will find 12 contestants competing to make their fantasies become realities.

Burnett explains:

Fantasy Island has all of the elements of a hit series an exotic location, dream fulfillment, competition and most of all, emotional story telling. Not only is the competition exciting, but the stories of the people whose fantasies are being fulfilled will be extremely compelling.”

Uh-huh. There isn't much left that American audiences find extremely compelling anymore when it comes to reality TV. Unless there is a big smoke monster and Matthew Fox running around the island, we don't see very big things coming from this series.

    Damn, I don't even think that was Barby posting. She must have gotten a date with a labrador. It must be your old coot mother with an EPIC FAIL NIGHT.

    Re: bongo – Guess you find something amusing about suicide, jerk? I'll laugh if I find out that an elephant sat on your callous self.

    Astatine said it best: just no.
    The 70's Fantasy Island was a fun show. This proposed thing is just a copycat of Survivor. Boooooring!
    Ricardo and Herve are turning over in their graves.
    Whoever came up with this idea needs to get on "de plane" and take it right the hell out of here.

    Why don't they run a reality show where people just shit and piss, and the ladies can menstruate?



  12. 12

    i do not

    I think the competition aspect is a turn-off. I wish they'd make it more like Extreme Home Makeover where we hear a person's story and then their wish gets fulfilled. The competition and manipulation and trash talking run the risk of ruining the warm fuzzies of the wish fulfillment.

    I disagree Perez, this show is gonna rock! The original was one of my favorite shows growing up, and this remake I think will be very popular. Mark my words Perez, you will regret dissing this show! It is gonna b a serious hit!

    Oh good. Another DUMB ASS REALITY SHOW that networks shove down our throats.

    Must not be much talent at networks. All they can come up with is dumb ass shows like this one.

    Why do I pay over $80 a month for nothing to be one but shit like this?

    i used to LOVE this show!
    and even as a young girl, i had the biggest crush on Ricardo Monteban.
