Bob Denver of Gilligan's Island dies

Bob Denver, the beloved actor who portrayed bumbling first mate Gilligan on the classic 1960s series Gilligan's Island, died Friday at Wake Forest University Baptist Hospital in North Carolina. Although Denver suffered from heart problems that demanded that he undergo quadruple bypass surgery earlier this year, his agent, Mike Eisenstadt, cited complications from cancer treatment as the cause of death.

The first iconic TV role Denver played was that of beatnik Maynard G. Krebs in The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, a comedy that aired from 1959 to 1963. The memorable Maynard was soon overshadowed by the legendary Gilligan, who was shipwrecked with a motley crew of tourists when Gilligan's Island premiered in 1964. Though the series only aired for three seasons before it was canceled, it won generations of fans who have been kept happy with continuing reruns, remakes, and movies. The most recent spin-off is the ...

TV Hall of Fame welcomes four

Television's goldenest girl tops this year's list of Television Hall of Fame inductees, which were announced Thursday by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

Actress Bea Arthur (pictured, front and center), who played Dorothy Zbornak in The Golden Girls and Maude Findlay in Maude, is the sole actress getting her due this year. Since The Golden Girls went off the air, Arthur has reduced her workload, guest starring in a few shows such as Malcolm in the Middle and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Joining her in this class are the late Merv Griffin, M*A*S*H producer Larry Gelbart, and Brady Bunch creator Sherwood Schwartz.

Griffin passed away last August at the age of 82. The producer had a vast media empire, and created the shows Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy (he also composed the latter's theme song).

Gelbart was instrumental in getting the popular M*A ...

Battlestar Galactica (2003)

Season One

One of the most highly anticipated television DVD releases is finally here! Well, sort of. What's being sold exclusively through Best Buy beginning July 26 is the UK version of the boxed set. The main difference between these episodes and what we've seen on the Sci-Fi Channel is that the episodes here feature a different opening than those in the US, as these are the versions that have been shown on SkyOne in the UK. This set has been previously available in the UK, but it has now been formatted so that it's compatible with DVD players in North America. The four discs here contain all 13 episodes as well as deleted scenes.

The remake of Battlestar Galactica has been better than anyone had any reason to believe it would be. First of all, the actors and actresses are fantastic ...

Gilligan's Island centered around a group of people who were stranded on an uncharted deserted island somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. They all were on a boat tour, which found itself in the middle of a storm leading them to crash on an island! Those stranded include, Gilligan, the Skipper, a millionaire (Thurston Howell III) and his wife (Lovey Howell), a movie star (Ginger Grant), a professor (known as "The Professor"), and Mary Ann. Gilligan was the first mate on the boat, the SS Minnow. Most episodes dealt with the castaways trying to get off the island, but their attempts seemed to always be foiled by Gilligan.
