Imagine a television show set entirely on a deserted tropical island. Well, after the introduction, where a 3-hour cruise hits a storm at sea and shipwrecks in paradise. This was the premise of Gilligan’s Island, a very popular sitcom from the 1960s. The ship’s skipper, first mate, and five passengers set sail for weekly hijinx, featuring lots of bamboo and coconut contraptions. This was part of the influential television of my Gen-X youth.
