It will be a Gilligan week! Looks like a take on Mr. Hyde. CaptNemo The judge instructed the jury to disregard all transformations they saw in the courtroom. As it might prejudice them against the defendant. bgbear_rnh it’s the only way to try, ha ha zombiewhacker “The mate was a mighty hairy man…” Rock Baker One of the show’s more wonderful dream sequences. Even moreso than the Vampire episode, this one was a parody of the Hammer films. Dr. Gilligan is quite obviously a play on the sort of characters so often played by Peter Cushing. In typical genre-crossing fashion, the Jekyll/Hyde story was mixed with elements from MARY POPPINS and MY FAIR LADY, among others! Eric Hinkle I remember how a downright horrible looking Mary Ann goes off at one point how Professor Gilligan “Made me a right proper lady, he did!” The Skipper (as a London bobby): “You mean… He did this to you?” And when she says yes, he promptly wallops Gilligan with his billy club. Eric Hinkle Heaven have mercy on me, but I can actually remember this. And wow but did Ginger ever look good in those costumes they had her wear. Beckoning Chasm The show has always had the reputation of “TV for dummies” but I think it’s better written, better acted, and more imaginative than pretty much anything on the Idiot Box these days. Rock Baker Actually, Skipper only verbally assaulted him (“You beast!”), it was the Professor’s prosecutor who hit him. “Are you Dr. Gilligan?” he asks, and Gilligan happily says “yes.” Then he grabs the flowers Gilligan is holding and wops him across the face before walking off. Gilligan, blinking his eyes and wobbling offers “I say! I’m glad he’s fair!” always give me a good laugh. Eric Hinkle That either says something very good about Giligan’s Island or something very, very bad about modern TV programming. Rodford Smith Hyde your wimmin’! Marsden I agree. It’s strange to say but I really think if they stopped making everything right now there’s so much good stuff on dvd I don’t think I’d really mind. Too bad there weren’t any monsters in F-Troop. Beckoning Chasm If you watch an episode of “Two and A Half Men,” for example, you’ll see that the entire show is that everyone insults everyone else, non-stop. While the episodes can be funny, they’re really wearing after more than two. Whereas the characters in GI genuinely seem to like each other. They know enough that Mr. Howell is always in it for himself, and that Gilligan can wreck anything, but the most common suggestion–“Why don’t they all just kill Gilligan?”–would have appalled them. Eric Hinkle They did have that episode with Vincent Price; and there was one time when they had some ghosts.
