Marcia Brady's turn
6 July 2012 | by stones78See all my reviews

This segment's two stories revolve around the search for a treasure hunt, and a young woman's fantasy is to be a beauty pageant winner, just like her mother. The guest stars include Maureen McCormick(first of 6 appearances on this show), Gene Barry, Peter Haskell, Jo Ann Harris, and Michael Callan. Neither story held much excitement or drama, save for a few scenes with an alligator chasing the fortune hunters, or falling rocks inside a cave where the treasure chest was located; another interesting scene was when Sally(McCormick)tells Roarke that she wants to win the pageant fair and square, not "predetermined" as he originally promised her. In a very predictable conclusion to this story, Sally loses to a girl from Texas, who needed a win for more important reasons than Sally's, although Sally's main goal was to win the love of her father(Barry), as they both shared a few emotional scenes together. The other story had a very jealous husband named Stu(Callan)constantly questioning James'(Haskell)interest in his wife(Harris), but after Stu decides to save James from the falling rocks instead of taking off with the treasure, they leave the island happy, and I'll assume his suspicions were quelled.

As I said earlier, nothing really stood out for me in either segment, but this was the inaugural season and I'm certain they get better as the show gains steam, as I prefer the more sinister stories which this show became famous for.
