Fantasy Island

Do you remember Fantasy Island?  It was that late 70′s early 80′s show where tourists came to the paradise island to live out a fantasty.  But once a reality, so many wished that it never happened.

The start of the show, Ricardo Montalban passed away recently.  He had this to say about why the show was successful in a 1978 interview:

 

“What is appealing is the idea of attaining the unattainable and learning from it. Once you obtain a fantasy it becomes a reality, and that reality is not as exciting as your fantasy. Through the fantasies you learn to appreciate your own realities.”

So what does this have to do with making money?  Nothing, just a bit of nostalgia… and I liked the quote he gave in his 1978 interview.
