Lost on Gilligan's Island

My friend Michael pointed out to me on the telephone yesterday that "Gilligan's Island" and "Lost in Space" were essentially the same show.

I added that among the obvious thematic similarities there was another aspect to both shows to consider:

One show was supposed to be funny, but usually wasn't.

The other show was supposed to be quite serious, and was often unintentionally funny.

hi, james - know you and harper at Land Of The Lost fans, but for me it was another similar show - but it was neither serious nor funny :). also the sonny & char show - they were definitely lost in whatever sense you wanna take.
