On Friday afternoon I learned that it was the 50th anniversary of the premiere of Gilligan's Island. This brilliant television series, one of the all-time greats, ran for three years (1964 - 1967) and introduced a few items to our popular culture.

I discovered the program in the early 1970s after realizing I kept seeing a listing called "Gilligan's Island" in TV Guide. One fateful day I popped the television on and tuned in to Global Television, a brand-new mini network here in Ontario, Canada.

There is not much I can add about Gilligan's Island that has not been said before; including me, here on this blog.
