“Have you ever wondered what happened to the castaways on “Gilligan’s Island”? Many people have, and that is why producers, directors, and actors come together to revive canceled shows for reunion specials, feature films, or whole new series. Television Fast Forward is a compilation of information on the various mutations original series have undergone since cancellation. […] As long as television viewers express nostalgia for the shows they once watched, producers will continue to revive them. Public library customers and librarians will find Television Fast Forward a useful and entertaining volume.” — BooklistLee Goldberg / Non-Fiction, Television Reference
