Robert Reed, the Brady Bunch
Gilligan's Island was the more sophisticated show. One episode was based on "The Most Dangerous Game", it had an Alcatraz-like bird man in another. The Skipper was a traumatized war veteran tormented by nightmares.
They should have done what they did with Gilligan's Island. Brought in some literary references. Imogene Cocoa appeared as an Auntie Mame-like bohemian in one episode, but they should have done a couple of shows based loosely on, say, the work of Tennessee Williams. Greg should have brought home a gentleman caller for Jan who helps her overcome her middle-child syndrome.
