1 They're having a Gidget marathon 4th of July on Antenna TV, if you have it in your area.. i don't, otherwise i'd probably have it on a lot.. they don't make good shows and movies like they used to -- Submitted By: (stryker73) on June 27, 2012, 6:26 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I was sad when they took Gidget reruns off the air. Yeah, it was bubble-gum TV (if there is such a thing); but Gidget had energy and an excellent relationship with her father. She never came to be spoiled and bratty like so many other TV girls (Marcia Brady, DJ Tanner, Rudy Huxtable, etc.), and was always someone who would make you happy. -- Submitted By: (Oleander29) on June 26, 2012, 10:12 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Actually, this was at times a little deeper than one would expect from the premise- with such issues as Gidget's mother having died a year before the show, her older sister and brother-in-law sometimes trying to overrule their father re raising Gidget and her staying friends with the intellectual, sun-allergic nerdy girl named Larue in spite of her own newfound popularity as a surfer chick! If one actually watches the show instead of dismissing it as pure fluff, one gets the sense of characters that were more multi-dimensional than expected and that Sally Field was already cutting her dramatic acting teeth even if those dramatic moments were often sandwiched between lengthy periods of sitcom fluff. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 1, 2010, 11:46 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 They adapted this one from the movie Gidget starring Sandra Dee. Sandra fit the role much better than Sally Field did. They probably should have cast another petite blond in this role rather than a thick brunette. -- Submitted By: (fletch000) on February 10, 2010, 1:01 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
