I don't get a lot of American culture. The Three Stooges bores the crap out of me, as does Lucille Ball... yawn. But I love Gilligan's Island. I have no idea why, but everytime it is on TV I have to watch it, this despite owning the DVD...
Maybe it was the character of Gilligan himself. Your underdog character that everyone loves. Or maybe it was just the group of characters, especially Mary Ann ;-). Whatever the reason, I really miss Gilligan. He wouldn't have bothered the poor people of the gulf states with feigned pity.
Miss you Gilligan, miss you Bob.
San Nakji for President!
