In the 70s I loved this show as a kid watching the reruns. I tried watching it recently on Nick At Night and realized not only was this show beyond belief dumb but that the characters were essentially children. Although I seriously believe Gilligan was a mastermind realizing that their place was on the island that the island was the only place they could ever be happy so he wrecked all their chances. One thing that I liked was all the characters were innocents. The Howells though rich really wanted to be liked more then anything else and truly loved their fellow castaways. Ginger played as being highly sexual but clearly it seems to have been an act
