Gilligan’s Island is one of the most beloved comedies of all-time. The classic series lost one of its original cast members earlier today. Russell Johnson who played Roy Hinkley, better known as the Professor, died at the age of 89 from kidney failure at his home in Bainbridge Island, Washington. With his death, only Tina Louise (Ginger) and Dawn Wells (Mary Ann) are the only surviving members of the original seven castaways. Wells wrote her Facebook following confirmation.

“My 2 favorite people are now gone. The Professor past away this morning. My heart is broken,” Wells wrote on Facebook. She’s referring to Johnson and star Bob Denver, who died in 2005. “Russell was a true gentleman, a good father, a great friend, and ‘the rest.’ I love him and shall miss him. My heart goes out to [his wife] Connie and his daughter Kim. I love you,” she added.

After Gilligan’s Island, Russell continued acting, appearing in Lassie, Ironside, The Invaders and NBC soap opera Santa Barbara. Johnson was also a full-time volunteer for AIDS research fundraising. His son David ran the AIDS program for Los Angeles, California, until David’s own death from complications of AIDS in 1994. Russell is survived by his wife and daughter Kim.

The classic CBS theme song is arguably one of the most memorable in television history. It’s a shame the majority of shows these days don’t come up with memorable intros. Check out the iconic opening below.

RuPaul’s Drag U Season 1, Episode 7 (Mother vs. Daughters)

Last week’s show featured a mother and her two daughters, all of which had fairly negative attitudes towards life.  There was 35 year old Tasha who didn’t go to prom, considered herself the unpretty one and lived in her younger sister’s shadow. Her sister even called her ‘Osh Kosh Big Tosh‘ when they were kids (betch), so it’s understandable that her self esteem was next to non-existent.  with ongina.  Her sister Brandy is 33 and dabbled in modeling when she was younger and even had a band name Stilettos. Finally we met mother Connie, who until about 5 years ago still felt like a hot biker chick, but after having to get glasses and a cane due to a hip problem had lost her sexy…back.
