  1. How soon we forget. Well, not soon.

    You guys briefly discussed SF reboots, and mentioned wanting a Gilligan’s Island in space.

    Well, back in the early eighties there was a Saturday Morning cartoon called Gilligan’s Planet. Mind you, this was a sequel rather than a reboot, since the Professor builds a space ship to get them off the island, and they end up getting stranded on a different planet instead. But it even had all the original actors (minus one) doing the voices (Dawn Wells ended up doing bother Mary Ann and Ginger)
