    Synopsis


    Ranking 17th in the overall ratings for its brief first season on the air, Fantasy Island was a shoe-in for renewal for a full second season on ABC. Ricardo Montalban and Herve Villechaize return respectively as the enigmatic Mr. Roarke and his excitable dwarf assistant Tattoo, who hold court over a lavish resort island where guests can have their most cherished wishes, hopes and dreams fulfilled--for a flat rate of 50 grand per head! The season opens with a standard "dual-story" episode, one comic and one serious, as nerdish Arte Johnson) fulfills his desire to be a shiek with a well-stocked harem, while former Vietnam MIA David Birney is nervously reunited with the loved ones who'd assumed that he'd been killed. Other guest stars appearing in Season Two run the gamut from current teen idols to seasoned veterans of Hollywood 's Golden Age: Sonny Bono, Vivian Blaine, John Astin, Celeste Holm, Desi Arnaz Jr., Gloria DeHaven, Ken Berry, Anne Francis, Connie Stevens, Troy Donahue, Phil Silvers, Mamie van Doren, Maureen McCormick, Lisa Hartman, Florence Henderson, Janet Leigh, Toni Tenille, Billy Barty, Roddy McDowell and Scott Baio. Perhaps the most poignant guest appearance is that of Samantha Eggar, cast as Helen Marsh, who would ultimately turn out to be the great love of the mysterious Mr. Roarke 's life. Most episodes this season follow the traditional hour-long, two-story format. There are however, two exceptions to this rule. Both "Let the Goodtimes Roll/Nightmare/The Tiger" and "Pentagram/A Little Ball/And Casting Director" run 90 minutes and feature three individual plotlines--and both, significantly, were originally shown during the traditional ratings "sweeps" weeks, on November 4, 1978 and February 17, 1979, respectively. ~ Hal Erickson
