Ah, there was many a morning I waited at the sitter’s for the school bus watching syndicated reruns of Gilligan’s Island and The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis. Gilligan, Maynard J. Krebs–these were my mass-media role models. Ah, to slack or bumble through life. It was a noble goal, no?
But Bob Denver is gone now. No more Returns to Gilligan’s Island for us. I was hoping, just hoping that they’d give him a walk-on in Lost….
Rest in Peace, Bob.
