Based on: "Fantasy Island" (1978-1984)
Hit or Miss? Miss
The original had Ricardo Montalban as Mr. Roarke, Tattoo, "De plane! De plane!" and enough creepy storylines to scar a kid from the '70s for life. (That ventriloquist episode? Nightmares still!) The new version had Malcolm McDowell as Mr. Roarke, several shout-outs to Shakespeare's "The Tempest," and very little point for existing. It lasted one season.
