Despite critical barbs as sharp as a Maroobi spear, Gilligan's Island has proven unsinkable. Its first season was 1964's top-rated show. The expository theme song is one of television's most quoted, and its characters--the...  more »

Movie Reviews

Classic TV At Its Best
T. Felumlee | 08/07/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Gilligan's Island series is a must-have for collectors of classic television shows. Although I could find nothing to indicate that they've been remastered, the quality is quite possibly too good. Small details that were invisible on the small screens of years past are quite evident with today's technology; especially the make-up. I'd never really noticed it before, but we're talking full-throttle "drag queen" make-up here. Nevertheless, it does not distract from the great writing (especially those lines spoken by the Howells), clean comedy, and pleasant experience of watching these episodes commercial-free. Grab it while you can!"
Gilligan's Island 1&2

"Classical Gilligan, funny, clean and entertaining. Something the whole family can watch and enjoy together. Unlike the garbage that's on TV today.
I can't wait for season III to be available."
Wonderful show, horrible packaging
Kevin Monceaux | 05/23/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The rating I gave this item is solely for the show. I wish Amazon would let one rate the packaging separately. This set would get zero stars for packaging. First of all, someone really needs to outlaw double sided DVDs. Double sided DVDs would be tolerable but the case design makes it worse. Each time I try to get one of the disks out of the case I'm afraid I'm going to break the disk. The release mechanism doesn't release the disks. One has to wiggle and maneuver them to get them out. There are four indentations for the purpose of grabbing the disks but their's a ridge around the bottom two making them unusable."
Best Show Ever!
Bonnie Ngu | Illinois United States | 02/07/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you are a fan of classic sitcoms you've got to own this series! There is nothing more funny than Gilligan's Island. IF you dont like watching black and white...dont worry...season 2 and 3 are in color! Enjoy!"
