Airing from 1978 to 1984, the original series starred Mr. Roarke, the enigmatic overseer of a mysterious island somewhere in the Pacific Ocean, where people from all walks of life could come and live out their fantasies, albeit for a price...Tattoo would run up the main bell tower to ring the bell and shout "The plane!. The plane!"to announce the arrival of a new set of guests at the beginning of each episode.. he comments how the guests who come to his island are "so mortal" and there are hints throughout the series that suggest Roarke may be immortal. In "Elizabeth", a woman from Roarke's past appears, but it's revealed that she died over 300 years ago.. Another episode even suggests that he was once intimate with Cleopatra... However old he is, Roarke has come to know many seemingly-immortal beings over his time on Earth, including The Ghost's Story..A Genie Named Hey Joe, the mermaid Nyah and the Matchmaker the goddess Aphrodite,and even Uriel, the Angel of D Triangle..Supernatural (Medieval Latin: supernātūrālis: supra "above" + naturalis "nature", first used: 1520–30 AD) is that which is not subject to the laws of physics, or more figuratively, that which is said to exist above and beyond nature...End of Part One (1980) AirLine Ad...

A Grumman Widgeon aircraft was used for the series..The proletariat (from Latin proletarius, a citizen of the lowest class) is a term used to identify a lower social class, usually the working class; a member of such a class is proletarian. Originally it was identified as those people who had no wealth other than their children...As defined in the Constitution of the Roman Republic, the proletarii was a social class of Roman citizens owning little or no property..In later seasons, there were often supernatural overtones. Roarke also seemed to have his own supernatural powers of some sort (called the "Gift of the McNabs" in "Delphine"), although it was never explained how this came to be.It is mentioned this is not the first time they have confronted each other and Mr. Roarke has always been the winner. In the second story, the Devil himself was one of the island's guests, claiming he was only there to relax and had no interest in Roarke's soul at the time. However, this turned out to be yet another ruse..He is the sole owner and proprietor of Fantasy I... Roarke's actual age is a complete mystery...'s like a speed camera - always there when you don't want them..65 years on the clock, and not a friend in the world!..Trouble in paradise.. There were no children in the garden of Eden..They train young men to drop fire on babys and children.. But their commanders won't allow them to write 'fcuk' on their aeroplanes of doom because it is obscene..And now here's another blast from the past coming out to Big Cind, all alone in the men's room out there with the First Battalion,55th Infant Cartouche in the Rye, and dedicated by the fire team at An Khe to their Groupie CO Head..The Rolling Stones' Satisfaction.....
