As Love Is Blind creator Chris Coelen developed his delightfully bonkers take on the reality dating genre, he had one home in mind: Netflix—and it’s easy to guess why.

Confronting ‘Fantasy Island’s’ Thorniest Legacy: Herve Villechaize, Sex, and Disabled Representation (2.17.20)

Every week between 1977 and 1983 audiences tuned in to watch actor Ricardo Montalban bring narrative wish fulfillment into people’s homes with the whimsical TV drama Fantasy Island.
