Wildly goofy, and incredibly entertaining., 21 August 2000
Author: lartronic from Akron, Ohio

Although this is considered the dumbest show in TV history, I still find it very entertaining, no matter how goofy it gets. Everything about it is great fun, especially the way Gilligan always messed things up no matter what. Too bad this didn't stay on longer.
