Gilligan has Died
For those who haven’t heard, Bob Denver died yesterday due to complications with treatment he was receiving for cancer. He’d also undergone quadruple heart bypass surgery earlier this year. He was 70 years old.
I watched Gilligan’s Island when I was a kid. I even remember watching the show he was in before that, The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, which aired from 1959 to 1963. In those days, we only had 2 or 3 TV channels here in Toronto, and there was no such thing as cable… just antennas.
Although Gilligan’s Island only lasted on CBS from 1964 to 1967, I’m sure almost everybody had seen the show and knows who Gilligan was.
I couldn’t bring myself to watch the newest reality remake of the show.
