    I'll buy this unless it's outrageously expensive or has crap video/audio.

    Right on. Gilligan was a favorite as a kid. Everything's better with a little Ginger.

    This is great news on several fronts. First, a great show gets a well deserved DVD release. (There were only three seasons so I'm hoping S2 and S3 follow soon.)

    Second, with DVD coming out this year and Green Acres and Mr. Ed coming at some point, it appears that TV on DVD may finally be ready to start mining all of the great programming from the 60's that many of us grew up with.
    Surely, shows like "Get Smart", "Jeannie", "Munsters", and "Addams Family" will see the light of day over the next few years.

    I agree with Dan, it's going to take a lot to keep me from buying this set. One thing that would irk me is if the DVDs were the colorized versions of S1 that TBS ran several years ago. I, of course, would want the original B&W. Also, I hope they spread the 36 episodes over enough discs to maintain optimum quality. I'm guessing 5 or 6 episodes per dual layered disc would be an appropriate limit.

    Thank you Warner Brothers!! (You can get extra brownie points from us by including the "lost pilot" episode in this set. Hint. Hint. [​IMG])

    Wow, this came from out of nowhere. Definitely something on my want list, despite how annoying the show could be at times. Are all 36 first season episodes in black & white?

    What's more exciting is that it now appears that Warner is breaking into its classic shows vault. Too bad they don't own that other big Scherwood Schwartz syndication darling: The Brady Bunch.

    Oh, and for David Lambert... is this one of the four shows you've been sworn to secrecy about?

    Yes, it's one of the four.

    I'm tracking down the B&W vs Colorized thing. I'm reasonably sure it will be B&W, but let me verify before I say for sure.

    Does the first season have that one episode where they almost get off the island but Gilligan screws it up? That one's a classic.

    I don't think it has that one. But lucky for you, it does have the episode where Skipper conks Gilligan over the head and the one where Ginger attempts to seduce someone by touching her thigh and pursing her lips.

    Isn't that the whole series in a nutshell? Or a coconut shell? lol!

    You know, I'm almost 100% certain that the Professor never made a radio out of a coconut.

    My wife's name is Mary-Ann. She goes ballistic everytime someone asks here where "Ginger" is. (Can't say I blame her.)

    I guess most people really don't remember the show becuase in episode 8 - Good-Bye Island at the end the Minnow completely falls apart.
