If the prof was as smart as he was supposed to be, why did it take them so long to get off the island?

I think the professor secretly wanted to stay on the island. He obviously had the skills to make a comfortable life for himself, he got to tinker in a variety of areas ranging from hypnosis to chemistry to transmogrification, and you know he was scoring like a tenured rabbit with Ginger and Mary Ann since his only competition was Gilligan and the Skipper. Why would he want to leave and get back into the cutthroat and narrowly focused world of academics?

I think he sabotaged all of those rescue efforts and set Gilligan up to take the fall.

I can understand your point. I'd like to do a threesome with Ginger and Mary Ann!

Here's my take on each person:


1. Professor - Most incentive other than the Skipper to stay on the island. See previous post.

2. Gilligan - No real incentive to stay or leave, but as the (probable) poorest person prior to the wreck, he had the least to lose being on the island, and all in all it's probably a pretty good life. Plus, he probably gets some occasional desperation sex from the ladies.

3. Skipper - Absolutely no incentive to get off the island. His boat is ruined, and even if he had insurance he's be facing lawsuits like crazy from people like the Howells, who you know have an army of lawyers on retainer. If he gets off the island, he'll be giving the Howells his paycheck forever and living in some roach-ridden apartment.

4. Mary Ann - She's a farmer girl, so her goal was to find a quiet place and grow stuff to eat. Duh. She found it. No incentive to leave, other than perhaps a lack of good marital prospects.

5. Mr. Howell - Huge incentive to leave. You know that his empire was picked apart by the wolves at Howell Industries in his absence.

6. Mrs. Howell - Probably had an incentive to leave, though she's a bit of a wild card. Did she really like being a debutante? It seemed like it, so I imagine she would miss the parties and stuff, not to mention the comfort that can be afforded by her wealth. Unless she was tired of the limelight, she'd want to get back.

Ginger - Ginger is different from the others. She has a very high-visibility career, with a relatively short shelf life as a sex goddess. Additionally, being rescued from a desert island would be a huge publicity boon for her. She would be the only one who would truly profit off of being stranded, but only if the rescue happened within a couple of years. Otherwise, her career momentum will be completely lost and she'll be just another C list wannabe.

Adding these up, I see four people with no incentive to get off the island, and only three people with an (admittedly stronger) incentive to do so. Given the fact that the Professor and the Skipper led most of the strategizing, I don't think it's a coincidence that all of those rescue attempts failed.

Someday I'll write up my theory about Gilligan's Island as an allegory for the Cold War.I did a sociology paper once about the organizational politics on Gilligan's Island. Can't remember it all, but basically Mr and Mrs Howell represented the Bourgeoisie, Ginger the celebrity elite, Professor the world of Academia, Skipper the oppresive middle management tool of the Bourgeoisie, and Gilligan was the proletariat. Mary Ann represented religious dogma; innocent, beautiful, naive and pure.

IMHO, Mary Ann was the hotter of the two. Ginger always looked rode hard and put up wet. Mary Ann could tear you up, then bake you a pie!

BTW: Dawn Wells is a graduate of Stephens College in Columbia, MO. Yowza!

Oddly enough, I was sitting at a picnic table, discussing Gilligan's Island at lunch with a coworker. To my shock and horror, I come back inside, open my web browser and, BAM! Gilligan is dead!!! What's was even more of a shock was to find out he was 70! 70!!! Christ All Mighty, I'm getting old.

Dawn Wells still looks hot-jeez she is what 60-but I would do her. Ginger was always a bitch but still hot.

I would say my top tv hotties would be.

1. I Dream of Jeanie-Barbara Eden was the bomb.
2. Mary Anne-sweet and innocent but great azz.
3. Bewitched-Early years, she was smokin.
4. Pettycoat Junction girls- nude in a water tower-can't complain about that.
5. Charlies Angels-minus brainy bitch Kate Jackson
6. Ginger-after all she was a movie star.
7. Charlene Tilton-Big boobed Dallas star.
8. Christy Mc nichol=she was hot in little darlings, forget what show she was on.
9. The blond girl on eight is enough-don't know her name, but was also in 1941 with Belushi.
10. Pinky Tuscadero-the Fonzes girlfriend-with a name like Pinky-oh never mind. Reminded me of Joan Jett-just something about those bad girls.

RIP, Maynard G. Krebs, if you can dig it daddy-o.

The Professor worked hard to invent a coconut-shell contraceptive, and every other invention after that was just window-dressing. Smart? You bet.

I agree that Mary Ann could rock your world, then bake a pie. But I always figured Ginger could pop the top and go to work right on the wiring.
