Love Boat Meets Fantasy Island, What Else?
22 March 2004 | by richard.fuller1See all my reviews

With Janis Paige as Madge (sounds like you're soaking in Palmolive), an enigmatic person much like Ricardo Montalban was on Fantasy Island. This time she would have a tropical crew as well who she doted over in a motherly way. This was Dominique Dunne and Chris Knight (better known as Peter Brady off The Brady Bunch).

In one scene, she stands, looking off into the distance and a youngster approaches behind her. She never looks around but raises her arm to wrap it around the young one's shoulders. Oooh, how enigmatic!

Involved were an assortment of wayward vacationers, unhappy at love:

Lisa Hartman, a grocer cashier whose car was shot up in a hold up, her mother Dodie Goodman.

Adrienne Barbeau, who was the mistress of Howard Duff, and Rick Hurst, who was hired by Duff to keep an eye on Barbeau. Or was Bill Daily the agent? Oh well, it didn't matter.

And Bob Seagren.

Couples go in and out, finally pairing up with their intendeds. Seagren was written off real quick. Daily and Hurst went back and forth to Barbeau, Hartman and Goodman, until the final evening and the surprise arrival, reuniting long lost lovers.

Cheesy with the Roarke bit applied to Paige and had the most awful singing throughout it. Horrible man kept singing "who will be the one?" in a latino style. It was terrible.

Clearly this was a pilot that wasn't picked up. Later on, however, there would be "Aloha Paradise" with Debbie Reynolds, again Love Boat on land. This one would be a very short lived series.

I didn't recall Love Island being a Valentine special. It would mainly be fun to see again simply for the eighties names and faces.

Totally harmless stuff.
