Gilligan's Island



The shows about seven cast aways trapped on an island... kinda like Lost but way more messed up with crashed planes, natives, giant spiders, a world war 2 soldier, a rock band, and a man in an ape suit!

Gilligan's Island is suppose to be a microcosm of the real world.

The Howells are the wealthy of society, ginger represents the celebrities in society, Mary Anne is the youth of the nation, the professor represents the educated of society, the skipper is the working class and Gilligan represents the... um... the crazies/criminals/high school drop outs/disabled/hobos/incompetents of our world.

Which is why the show is named after him, he represents the majority of society. We all live on Gilligan's Island, we just call it earth.

How many Gilligan's do you know?

  1. I wouldn't mind being trapped on an island with Mary Anne and Ginger.
    I don't know about the rest of them.

  2. I actually never really thought of it like that. My mind has been blown. It really has lol. As for Gilligans, I think I know less than most people, but I know less people than most people.
