Bob Denver, best known as Gilligan on TV's "Gilligan's Island," passed away last Friday at the age of 70. My sympathies go out to the family.
On a personal note, "Gilligan's Island" was one of the first TV shows I remember watching (in reruns, of course). It was plenty of goofy fun, largely because of Denver's performance as the eternally-bewildered first mate. I haven't seen an episode in years, but still remember it fondly.
