On the golden girls and and and all of those women were interested in sexual hook ups. And there was nobody more sexual on television then then blanched and it was very very overt. Which she was interested and and they made no. It made no it needed highlighted at all.

And even though I've seen the show is in effect I've even seen reruns of the reruns since I started watching it recently. I still to slowed to sit down in and watch the show. Now since I know what's gonna happen it it allows me to think about other things. And I'm always thinking about this show and things -- to talk about.

All right Roland that's a good night I appreciate you calling -- show it's always a good to have fun on a Friday night. Here's attacks always loved Little House on the Prairie and highway to heaven. So the news of the deaths of Russell Johnson who played the professor Gilligan's Island and to -- -- played the band manager of the Partridge Family of inspired us to think about these iconic shows Gilligan's Island. On CBS from 64 to 67. And departure -- on ABC from seventy to 74. Both shows have been in in re runs and people continue to watch the Partridge Family centered around a widowed mother who was raising five children. The Stanley formed a band and David Cassidy who played Keith partridge. Who was a Shirley Jones who played the mother her stepson. -- he became a teen heartthrob and she'll watch his solo career the guy who passed away this week and Dave -- played the part of the pushy manager Ruben Kincaid. But the two shows Gilligan's Island had a much bigger impact on pop culture. The premise of the show was this small sightseeing boats. There was caught in -- store. During a three -- -- landed on and on chartered -- Each episode revolved around different opportunities for the castaways to be rescued and and return home. But every episode ended with the same outcome they never gone off the island. What was it about Gilligan's Island it made it's a -- a pop culture phenomenon for not only in my generation but for several generations. So the lingering question is. Ginger or Maryann and we don't even have to explain the question because everybody knows what that means that that's -- -- W little party jaguar opinion poll tonight. Give us your opinion by going to WW real dot com Google update does that in just a moment but the very question ginger or Mary hand. I think. Spoke volumes about the obvious sexual overtones in the show. The idea that too attractive girls stranded in definitely. On a deserted island. What's the males fantasy of considering which one guys which used to be with if they were on the island. Ginger. Or Maryann. And they both represented distinct styles of girls they couldn't be farther apart in nature ginger the glamorous starlet tightened. -- the stereotypical. Girl next door. Now while ginger would seem to be the obvious choice for people who would love women because she was so overtly sexual. It's the more wholesome image of Mary and the -- seemed to make her the the unofficial favorite I haven't seen any news specifics. In terms of nationwide polls but people that I talked to most of them say -- answer choice over ginger. In our -- -- project opinion poll tonight has been very lopsided it in the in favor of Marianne. So give -- another update on that coming appeared in just a few minutes. So may become -- could -- cents. And may be watching it I'd like to Mary and better because maybe we could just sense. That ginger would be high maintenance problem. I mean this was not going to be an easy woman to satisfy. Or maybe -- preferred the extremely short shorts. Did Mary and which painted into every episode but a short shorts worn by -- in the show. Where as short or shorter than anything I've seen Miley Cyrus where. If only -- would have known about working Pakistan. I don't think you I don't mean girls watching Gilligan's Island face the same to limited that I -- unless of course you're -- lesbian and you probably the same. Question your mind ginger or or -- But I don't think girl's face the same problem that guy's face to me what with the girls choices the skipper. The professor. Gilligan. When he was seem to me that the only choice there would be the professor. But in addition to the sexual overtones of Gilligan's Island. There were other things that might have been more sub conscious other reasons why the masses could relate to the plight of these these cast a waste. Maybe we found something comforting in and watching the survival instincts of the castaways. Usually with the help of the professor at the castaways. Had modern conveniences. That were created to two. To give them all the comforts of home created out of just basic resources on the I'm going to professors genius creativity. Led to one obvious question is the professor could make all these things from coconuts and bamboo. Why couldn't he fix the three foot hole in the boat. Another redeeming message in -- Gilligan's Island I think was that the blending of different socio economic groups. Thurston Howell and -- how old they were upper class snobbish millionaires. The professor was an intellectual and a science teacher ginger was a glamorous starlet. Very sexual in nature. Marianne was was wholesome although she did where it usually short shorts. The skipper represented blue collar workers and Gilligan was the typical underdogs grew up. And yet with few exceptions they all bonded over their dire circumstances. And the common goal of getting off the island. While the characters on the show lacked real diversity in terms of race religion nationality and sexual orientation. Their backgrounds their interest were to first. May be the the ultimate message of Gilligan's Island was dead if we focus on what we have in common. Rather than what separates us we really all get along. So. With that knowledge that they that there was some subconscious things about that TV show. And then of course you know we we watched the TV show and we were hoping that they would get rescued but we knew. That they the episode would -- and they wouldn't be rescued because if it was if it was a TV show how could they be rescued and it would. Still be on the year. TV land is planning on Gilligan's Island Marathon Monday from 8 AM until 8 PM. And the show is on them Monday through Saturday from 6 PM 8 PM our time. Antenna TV is honoring a date Madden with the Partridge Family marathon and it's going to be tomorrow Saturday from 12 noon until 7 o'clock. Now considering the premise of the Partridge Family especially Gilligan's Island. Anyone would be challenged to find intellectual justification for investing time every week to watch -- show. -- in continuing to watch the shows in syndicated reruns. But sometimes maybe the redeeming value of mindless television. Is that it's a mental and emotional -- It against -- -- of us. So as we honor the passing of these two actors from the news Iconix it comes from the past. I guess we can think about. Which if any sitcoms today will survive the test of time and continue. To provide memories and escapism. For audiences in the future. If you gonna join Russia with a comment and among other things -- talking about those those TV shows -- real comfort zones for you what.
