Synopsis


Season three of Gilligan's Island finds those seven stranded castaways still marooned on a tropical island, still making the best of things (it's an uphill climb!), and still seeking out any and all methods of escape. The only change during the third season is a cosmetic one; now, most of the 30 episodes open with a pre-credits "teaser," setting up the episode's premise -- and of course, re-introducing Gilligan (Bob Denver), the Skipper (Alan Hale Jr.), Mr. and Mrs. Howell (Jim Backus, Natalie Schafer), Ginger (Tina Louise), Mary Ann (Dawn Wells), and the Professor (Russell Johnson). Fans of the series consider this season the best ever, with some truly unforgettable episodes. Among these are "All About Eva," featuring Tina Louise in a dual role as Ginger and her drab lookalike Eva Grubb, and "The Second Ginger Grant," in which a bump on the head causes Mary Ann to take on the voice and personality of Ginger (a true tour de force for the talented Dawn Wells). Perhaps the best episode of the lot is "The Producer," guest-starring Phil Silvers as Hollywood mogul Harold Hecuba, who takes over production of the castaway's own musical version of Hamlet -- and plays all the parts in the process! Other noteworthy guest performers this season include John McGiver as eccentric butterfly collector Lord Waterford, Rory Calhoun as crazed big-game hunter Jonathan Kincaid, Strother Martin as befuddled "take-a-dare" game contestant George Barkley, Don Rickles as inept kidnapper Norbert Wiley, and Vito Scotti in a return engagement as mad scientist Dr. Boris Balinkoff.

    Not much these days that one can watch as a family on TV. We mostly watch PBS or old shows. We picked this up after getting the first two seasons at a discount place. Although dated, it is decent, corny, but the kids find it funny. Don't have to worry about language or violence. And it is a good talking point with kids on how times have changed in TV/film (black and white to color) and women's rights and the emerging of fantasy on TV.

    The wackiest season of Gilligan's Island re released on single sided discs, with a commentary & documentary ported over from original release. The only drawback is plastic case is spindle type, with discs stacked on top of each other. Great price, replace the case.

    I love this show and I have fond memories of my childhood when this show was in first run. Over the next 15 years from 1967 through about 1982 I watched this silly show in reruns almost daily. It's nice to see these episodes again.

    It's fun to see the old shows once again, and the young teens in our house enjoy them as much as we ever did. They were filmed long ago so naturally didn't have the advantage of the great film enhancements available today.

    These shows aren't anything that you probably haven't already seen if you are Gilligan's Island fan. It's nice, though, to be able to see them in order without any commercials.

    Gilligan's Island brings back fond memories from my youth. All ages can enjoy the antics of the Island castaways. I get to enjoy these scenes with my young boys and they laugh a lot.

    Did we all not just love this show when we were kids? Now my kids are requesting to watch it instead of the new junk on tv!
