Rescue from Gilligan's Island

(NBC, 10/14/1978 and 10/21/1978, 2 Parts, 60 mins each). The gang from the 1964-67 “Gilligan’s Island” series finds its way off the island after 14 years, being carried back to civilization by a giant tidal wave. The castaways (the six original members and Judith Baldwin, replacing Tina Louise) go their separate ways and try to cope with a faster-paced society while Gilligan himself finds that he is the target of a couple of bumbling Soviet agents and ultimately is shipwrecked once again with the old group on the same deserted island. The movie was subsequently shown as a single two-hour segment, and two TV-movie sequels followed in 1979 and 1981.
