A few days ago, just out of the blue, I felt like watching episodes of Gilligan's Island. My dad owns seasons one and two which my sister and I bought him as a gift a year ago. I used to love watching the Skipper, Gilligan, the Professor, Mary Ann, Ginger and the Howell's as a kid with my dad. Of course, at that time, I was about 5 or 6 years old and I didn't question anything about the show. Now almost 15 years later, I do have some questions:
1) If it was only a three-hour tour (a three-hour tour), why do they have so many clothes and other stuff with them?
2) If the castaways were smart enough to build an ark in one of the episodes in season 2, why not build a boat and get off the island? Why didn't the professor think of that! Come on!
I can rarely watch old tv shows but Gilligan I can. I find myself laughing out loud to some of Gilligan's antics. I did find some similarities between Gilligan and Screech from the 90's tv show Saved By The Bell. In one episode, Gilligan's mouth was turned into a radio receiver and I'm 99% sure the same thing happened to Screech. Both are just loveable and comical characters.
I even thought that Jason Hawes from Ghost Hunters looks a lot like the Skipper! I don't know if it's just me.
Well,that's it for now. Again, don't forget to enter for the "Hidden and Imminent Dangers" giveaway. I'll drop in early tomorrow morning to draw a winner.
Have a great week everyone!
