Gilligan's Dead

I know it was last week, but I've been busy, and sick. I'm sad about Bob Denver. I grew up watching Gilligan's Island almost every day. It was the product of a simpler philosophy--a time when television didn't try to reflect reality. People watched tv to relax and laugh. No one then knew how much people would pay for in-depth profiles of sin and strife. Now, we're obsessed. Gilligan reminded me that we could choose something different to laugh at. Paul said it was shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. Yet I'm entertained by it... I'll miss Gilligan.

I'm surprised no one has said anything to me about it. :-(

Thanks so much. I really appreciate it.

And yet, Gilligan was involved in more than one of those sin-embracing reality shows... what does that mean?

Hope you're feeling better

Hey Steve...hope that you'll get to feeling better soon..I heard about Bob Denver as well....I think that I was born in the wrong generation sometimes because I used to stay up watching him all night long so when I heard that he had passed I took it pretty hard...

Hey Steve - I feel like I've been gone for a year and missed out on a bunch.

Don't forget, you could always watch the greatness of "The Price Is Right". You can never go wrong with Bob Barker. That show has aged very well over the last 20 years.
