I don't think Gilligan's Island deserves the scorn it gets, certainly not in an era where popular entertainment is dominated by degrading "reality" shows and sharknadoes. .
What's more, it was an educated man who led the group. Imagine that in todays world when you hear things like "something called volcano monitoring"
If only we had kept the professor instead of Bobby Jindal...
That gives me an idea for a Gilligan sequel involving Tea Party members trapped on an island. They don't believe the professor about typhoons and the island volcano, refuse to accept his vaccination, and suffer the consequences--oh, wait--it's called Congress.
