Good clean fun for the whole family!
Charles Miller
I'll never forgive the network for canning the show...Series 3 saw the castaways really hitting their straps with great guest stars.

"Gilligan's Island," while never a hit with the critics, is beloved today by millions of fans. I don't remember when the series was on during primetime, but I fondly recall coming home from school to catch it in the afternoons. This DVD set covers the final season of the short-lived series and it contains some of my favorite episodes. Gilligan thinking that he's a vampire, Gilligan being hunted by a big game hunter, MaryAnn thinking that she's Ginger, a witch doctor casting spells on the castaways, and many more memorable episodes. My all time favorite is included here - "The Producer" with Phil Silvers as the over-the-top movie producer Harold Hecuba.

The entire episode list follows:

#1 - Up at Bat - After being bitten by a bat, Gilligan is convinced that he is turning into a vampire.

#2 - Gilligan vs. Gilligan - Gilligan can't convince the others that there is a Russian spy on the island and he looks just like him!

#3 - Pass The Vegetables Please - Gilligan finds a crate of radioactive vegetable seeds that give the castaways superhuman powers.

#4 - The Producer - Phil Silvers guest stars as Harold Hecuba and the castaways try to impress him by staging their own version of "Hamlet."

#5 Voodoo - A witch doctor makes dolls in the likeness of the castaways and casts spells on them.

#6 Where There's A Will - Mr. Howell decides to revise his will and leave everything to his fellow castaways. When they throw him a party, he thinks that they are out to kill him.

#7 Man With A Net - John McGiver guest stars as Lord Beasley, a butterfly collector in pursuit of the elusive pussycat swallowtail.

Unlike many other shows of the 60s, Gilligan's Island went out on a high note, leaving good memories of a show that didn't tail off in quality after a 3-year run. Surprising, considering that watching it, you realize how much of a one-joke slapstick it really was. Despite its observable limitations, it proved itself popular enough to warrant the show a significant spot in the pantheon of archetypal TV comedy and endless re-runs that never seem to get stale. Sherwood Schwartz (Funnyman who was the genius behind Hogan's Heroes) turns in a different comedy gem with Gilligan, showcasing how a simplistic premise can be stretched for 3 years and stay on top of the quality barrel. It's Saturday night circa early 60's and right after The Jackie Gleason Show on CBS comes `Gilligans Island'.

When it first aired about the only two well-known members of the cast to the vast majority of viewers were Bob Denver who had appeared as the beatnik Maynard G. Krebs on Dobie Gillis and the multi talented Jim Backus. Russell Johnson who played the Professor was one of those actors that would appear on various TV shows. Its run on prime time was three seasons but thanks to re-runs Gilligans Island has in fact never left the airwaves. The 98 episodes play over and over yet they still hold up well today and one can still find themselves laughing at various episodes even though they may have seen it dozens perhaps even hundreds of times. The highlight, is of course, Bob Denver's fantastic comedic timing, coupled with some of the most original writing of the era. And let's not forget that fantastic theme song that has stayed burned in the memory of many fan's brains. A truly classic show that deserves its title, and the DVD extras are very welcome for a show that's almost 40 years old. This is essential TV comedy classic.

We are huge fans of Gilligan's Island, this is creative, interesting, visionary television programming at its Best! You never tire of the silly stories they are so free, relaxing and silly. Life is grand because of Gilligan's Island. The kids enjoy it, I enjoy it, we can watch them over and over again and learn or notice something new...A real family value, which we don't see much of anymore...Hooray For Gilligan's Island. There is a God!

as i have said in my other reviews,i'm a father of two who uses these and other old shows i grew up on to show my boys and keep them from watching some of the trash that passes for tv these days. on friday nights we have popcorn and movie nights and gilligan is one of the top shows they pick to watch.

you know the story and the theme song,so really the only thing to say is that this silly,very funny show is something my kids and i share and laugh at together and we talk and just have a good time as a family watching this family friendly show that i don't have to worry about leaving the room for a second because i know no dirty words ,gore, or sex is going to show up.

the fact that my boys love this as much as i did and we can share it together earns 5 stars and a big place in my collection.

As others have already noted in their reviews, Sherwood Schwartz's sitcom "Gilligan's Island" was prematurely canceled after the 1967 television season, in order for CBS to make room on their prime-time schedule for one last season of the hit Western series "Gunsmoke." It would be wrong to praise Gilligan's Island by bashing Gunsmoke, since the latter is also a classic (and unlike Gilligan's Island, a long-running) television series, but it is certainly an interesting "what might have been." By the third year of their adventures on an "uncharted" island, it was clear that, far from running out of ideas and rehashing the same stale material over and over again, the castaways actually seemed to just be hitting their stride insofar as off-the-wall, so-idiotic-it's-hilarious comedy went. Gilligan's Island could have probably gone on to last at least six or seven seasons overall, but the very brevity of the show, and the lasting impact of the fewer-than-100 episodes upon millions of viewers worldwide, have served to make it a cult phenomenom -- something akin to the short-lived 90s series (and Clair Daines' star vehicle) "My So-Called Life" -- only without the pretense to realism or unnecessary histrionics.

Gilligan's Island is a gloriously, unapologetically stupid show, and that's why it's so great, and in no season is its greatness more wonderfully showcased than in the final year of its prime time life.
