    I've always enjoyed Gilligan's Island - I know several line by line! So, when I saw the price for the entire 3 season collection, I was thrilled to add it to my collection. I was pleasantly surprised to find that not only are the episodes of great quality, but the extras are fun, entertaining, and interesting. The first disc indicates to "turn over for more episodes" so possible it used to be a "back to back" but wonderfully enough, it is not. I do not like back to back - which makes this collection even better. All one-sided discs. If you loved the series, spend the money. You'll not regret it.

    A classic from the 60's!

    A group of castaways trapped on an island, trying to escape, all while the bumbling Gilligan ruins every attempt. It's such a simple and repeated concept, but it worked so well! Originally shown in the 1960's, it became more well-known in syndication in the 70's & 80's. It has that cheesy and humor and writing that is a part of pretty much every show from then, so it's a classic for the baby-boomers and early Gen-X. It has every episode, and since it's really never on TV anymore, this is the way to see them all!

    I purchased Gilligans Island box DVD set. In the past I found my self picking my favorite character to laugh at. I know they were all funny and the professor would come up with so many ideas. Where did he get the tools to fix these things? LOL!! I found my self Picking out my favorite character again. You get nothing but good old belly laughs from these innocent characters. I’m so glad Best Buy still has these on hand.

    Gilligan's Island is one of the great shows that can make you smile no matter what. Jim Backus is hilarious as Mr. Howell. The rest of the cast is great as are the guest stars (especially Hans Conried as Wrongway Feldman). This set is perfect for kids to watch and will bring back memories for even the most jaded adult. Well worth the money.

    I can remember watching this series when I was a kid and it still makes me laugh til this day. "Gilligan's Island: The Complete Series Collection" is a classic comedy of 7 vastly different personalities stranded on an island. "The Skipper" and "Gilligan" share a comedic chemistry that'll make you laugh out loud any day of the week!

    I was so happy to get this set! I told my wife that I thought it was sad that my kids would never get to see Gillian's island and a couple weeks later I found this on sale! All the classic episodes including the pilot which had a different person playing the professor and different girls. The changes were needed to make this show the classic it is today!

    The disk set is just what I expected, but the show is a bit more silly than I remembered it being. The grandkids think it is great, so it was worth buying. Personally, I have trouble suspending logic to really enjoy the slap-stick. As far as recommending it to a friend, probably not.

    I love Gilligan's Island because I identified with Gilligan. As a kid I was klutzy, and getting to dumb trouble all the time. And Gilligan was not just klutz. Every once in a while, he was the genius. Lot's of survivalism too. Innovation and very different people having to get along.

    I bought this on a whim, the price was good and I have fond memories of the show growing up. It's a good escape from the day to day seriousness we're subjected to these days and always spot on for nostalgia for me. The picture quality isn't great but, for a 50 year old tv show, it's just fine.

    After growing up in the 60's with the best sitcoms of that era, I wanted to relive my youth with the purchase of this very funny and creative television show. It did not disappoint as I was transported back to a kid just having a good laugh with my family.

    Gilligan's Island DVD Complete Set, is a fun trip of laughter and hilarious times. Brings back a lot of scenes that we have talked and laughed about through the years. And the theme song can always be remembered as we sing along. What a variety of fun unique characters. One of the greatest shows ever!

    Grew up with Gilligan's Island, and this 'complete series' set makes for a great weekend of binge watching! Sit right back and you hear the tale, a tale of seven who are stranded on a deserted island that happens to be visited by numerous others. Every episode is a classic waiting for the next generation to discover.

    I bought this primarily for my wife ( or at least that's what I told my self ). But I have enjoyed watching the castaways as much or more than she has. I know it's telling my age, but I remember when the 1st show aired on TV. They don't make shows like this anymore, its all murder series or reality TV. I could care less who is on wife swap!

    The first set I got my son for Christmas was damaged. We had to return the boxed set to get a new one. He opened the new one at Best Buy and it was damaged too. Best Buy helped us to find one that was not damaged.

    Every episode, all three seasons, is included in this set, plus commentary on some eps, and a few more extras. I olny wish they'd updated the set to include tributes to the departed actors (Dawn and Tina are still alive), plus the Filmation cartoons. Overall, though, I'm satisfied!

    Watching this series is almost like watching a new series unfold, because I never paid attention to the millionaire and his wife. Thoroughly enjoyable 1960s television slap-stick comedy series starring Jim Bacchus (remember Mr. Magoo?) and many others .

    You've heard the age old question: Mary Ann or Ginger? Well little buddy, you don't have to be the professor or rich Mr. Howell to take the 3 hour tour and find out for yourself. This classic show is wholesome and will be a hit with your entire family. Enjoy!

    I loved these shows in reruns as a kid, rushing home to watch every afternoon after school. This set has some nice extras about the show. The discs are very bare bones - no pictures of the cast members on them as I've seen done on other 60's dvd sets. And we all love that theme song don't we?

    I watched all of Gilligan's Island in my younger years and enjoyed every minute of it. Since my wife did not have a TV, she missed this show. No better way to introduce her to the "Island folk" than to view the video together. Just as much fun now as back then.

    I bought this as a Christmas gift for my daughter and she loved it. When I purchased it I was unaware that it only ran for 3 three seasons (it seemed like more). The price was amazing for a boxed set and well worth it, the price now is 3 times what I paid for it.
