I love this episode!
14 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love how they made fun of the whole British invasion style music in this episode. Another bonus is the girls singing 'You Need Us' as the female trio 'The Honeybees'. Tina Louise and Dawn Wells in tight pants and turtlenecks are so hot! This is a classic episode in this wonderfully silly classic TV series that's a favorite of me and many others worldwide. The whole improbability of their situations and their endless wardrobe changes (they had a TON of clothes for a three hour tour!) and how many times the castaways 'almost' got rescued by visitors like The Mosquitoes, Don Rickles, Phil Silvers, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Vito Scotti and more guest stars....oi vey! I still love this show a lot.
