I have seen some really lame shows out there (Friends, for example), but Fox really took a chance with this series. With a premise inspired by or stolen from Gilligan's Island, seven strangers manage to survive a disaster caused by an accidentally launched nuclear rocket. One man is in his indestructable Yugo, another is in a bank vault, another under a freeway underpass,,,,,they all find their way to a valley unaffected by the blast and decide to recreate humanity from themselves. There were few jokes in this limited series and one really interesting episode where a radioactive jem causes an one of the female characters' chest to develop over night. Fred Applegate played an optimistic bum firing off one hilarious one-liner after another as Evan Handler played the smart Gilligan, the unofficial leader of the group, while the rest of the characters were rough amalgamations of the castaways with the bum as the skipper, a Wall Street broker as the millionaire, a coroner as the professor, a dumb redhead as the actress and a cute blonde as the ingenue. Apparently, the similarites became too close and someone had the foresight to pull the plug before it was too late.
