The only explanation I could figure out for the revised Season 3 packaging is that the manufacturer is using the boxes designed for the original release of this title which had double sided discs originally packaged in cardboard type boxes that pulled out from the slip case to hold the discs. Possibly, the current configuration of the two "fat" cases and the single standard case fit in the same specs without redesigning the original case. Seasons One & Two both have six discs each, while Season Three only has five, so it is only logical that the last season would need less room.
The quality of the video is great, and the audio is up to par with TV shows from this era. It's great to see Gilligan again, since I don't see the show in syndication anymore. Also the unaired pilot was cool with different characters and a different song was cool to see. Plus, there are no flipper discs anymore. All discs in this set are all single sided.
This must be a remake of an earlier release. The DVD menus and box documentation indicates that there are episodes on the back side of the DVDs. However, this release has all the episode on a single side (which I like far better). The DVD menus still say that there are episodes on the back side, so someone must have forgotten to edit that out in this remake because all of the episodes on that DVD are still listed in the menu, and you can access the episodes without turning the DVD over. I can live with that!
The stories are still as funny as ever. Sure they are a bit corny, but fun to relive. Many good laughs! If you are a Gilligan's Island lover, you will enjoy these DVDs. So far, not a single glitch, pause, or problem with the DVDs and the packaging allows for keeping your DVDs in good shape.
