Season 1

Eps  001

Hungry Christine/Mel Loves Ruby
Air date: Wed August 11th, 2021

We are introduced to the host of the island and her first group of visitors as we see a news anchor who has some personal issues to deal with and an old couple looking for an adventure on borrowed time.

We are introduced to the host of the island Miss Roarke who I’m guessing may be the daughter of Mr Roarke from the original show. First episode was ok, nothing to keep you going except a little twist towards the end with one of the guests. If you’re attentive and a fan of the original you will notice a little homage to tattoo.

His and Hers/The Heartbreak Hotel
Air date: Wed August 18th, 2021

An Adventurous couple on a quest for more and a guest not willing to let go of the past.

This episode explores feminism in a different way which I’m not quite sure was executed to its best as some things were a bit exaggerated and unrealistic (were there no men in the writing room for reference?) Still waiting for an explanation on these magical thing happening out of nowhere and no one seems that surprised about.

Quantum Entanglement
Air date: Wed August 25th, 2021

The island hosts a self-centered mother and a skeptical Scientist who appear to have more in common than they realize.

The title for this episode is misleading with it’s only inference drawn from the fact that one of the guests is a Physicist. An interesting episode once you ignore the “fantasies” of the island and just go with the flow.

Once Upon a Time in Havana
Air date: Wed September 1st, 2021

Percussionist Alma wants to be accepted by her tight-knit Cuban family, but to understand why they disapprove of her musical career, she must revisit their history.

We only have one guest for this episode which turned out to be my best episode yet even though it had its short comings. This time the island takes on time travel and throws the butterfly effect right out the window as there are no consequences for interfering with the past here because.....The Island.
