Trivia

The castaways in this version were shipwrecked in the Caribbean and the unused opening song had a Cuban flavor to it. For the ongoing series the setting was changed to the South Pacific, which is a more believably vast and empty place to get lost in than the relatively small, crowded Caribbean Sea. See more »

Goofs

The boat is called the SS Minnow, but "SS" stands for "steam ship". A small boat like the Minnow would be powered by diesel or gas engine. See more »

Before Lost (2004) , Before Lost In Space (1965)...
6 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is the un-aired pilot that slowly became available to the world in the 1990s...now on DVD! The story details the series premise about a group of mis-matched Americans being marooned on an island together. Mr and Mrs Howell seem to struggle with island life more than the others.

Marooned is filmed 100% on location and by the end it, the viewer feels like they have just spent 25 minutes on a lost tropical island in the South Pacific.

On top of this, as well as the expected comedy, we get the odd concerned remark from The Skipper about island natives causing problems.

Marooned is a gem.
