    All 3 seasons in one package! it doesn’t get any better than this. These are complete and unedited unlike some sets that are being released with different music, or edited episodes. season 1 is in black and white as originally aired, seasons 2 and 3 are in color as aired. I have watched reruns for years and when i saw that the complete series was available as one set, i couldn’t pass it. Bonus footage includes interviews with Russell Johnson and Sherwood Schwartz, also included is the pilot episode with a different ‘professor’ ‘Ginger’ and ‘Mary Ann’ and different opening and closing music. A great treat for fans and someone that wants it all! Quality is excellent! I don’t purchase many tv shows on dvd, but this was a must for me! 5 stars without a doubt!!!

    A must have for Gilligan fans, February 13, 2004

    This review is from: Gilligan’s Island: The Complete First Season (DVD)

    Gilligan’s Island The Complete First Season is a must have for fans of the 1960′s comedy. Everything you could want is here. The 3-disc set includes all 36 episodes from the first season presented in standard black and white. The episodes look great in black and white rather than that awful color that was inserted into them while on TBS. The DVD also includes the lost pilot episode with three different cast members alongside Gilligan, the Skipper, and the Howells. Also on the DVD are tropical tidbits about certain episodes, profiles on how the cast was selected, and a tropical island survival guide.

    The excellent cast really made this show what it was. Bob Denver as Gilligan, Alan Hale JR as the Skipper, Jim Backus as Thurston Howell III, Natalie Schaefer as Lovie Howell, Tina Louise as Ginger, Russell Johnson as the Professor, and Dawn Wells as Mary Ann made up one of the best ensemble casts in television history. Fans of this much loved show should run out and buy Gilligan’s Island The Complete First Season. You will not be disappointed!

    It’s so great to have all of the Gilligan’s Island episodes, and the commentary by Sherwood Schwartz on each season. They have taken GI off all my satellite stations, so I had to get the DVD’s to see the episodes.
    But it was worth it, clear pictures, and no commercial interruptions!!!
    I like to laugh, so this series is the perfect medicine for me. Well worth the price!!
