    One of the things that impresses me about Gilligan's Island is that the show never got worse. In fact, some could argue it got better. While most comedies get steadily worse until they deserve to get canceled Gilligan's Island stayed a top quality show right up 'til the end. Stupid Gunsmoke.

    I agree with you, although there certainly would be those who don't. I would say Gilligan's Island technically "jumped the shark" several times, but it worked out better for this show (i.e. the silly dream sequences, the evil twins, the science fiction, etc.).
