Message: Posted by: Slartibartfast (Jan 30, 2009 12:28PM)
...was the one where they almost got off the island, but Gilligan messed it up and they wound up still stranded.

I love that one!

Yeah..those were my favorite episodes too. ;)

And do you remember that episode of Bewitched where Darrin didn't want Samantha to use her powers but she did anyways?

I love that one where they almost got off the Island, but then they didn't.

Does anyone know the name or number of the episode where Mr Howell does that fancy card handling?
Message: Posted by: rossmacrae (Jan 30, 2009 01:45PM)
The one where a rogue film librarian burned every print and negative of this unfunny excuse for entertainment ... oops, sorry, that's just what I fantasized every time I suffered through 5 minutes of an episode.
Message: Posted by: Vandy Grift (Jan 30, 2009 01:49PM)
Why did you suffer through it even 5 minutes of it? Was it back in the day where you actually had to get up to change the channels? I know I watched a lot of crap TV back in the day cause I didn't feel like getting up.

LOL oh man!
My pops would be on the couch, I'd be on the floor and it would ALWAYS
be "Hey Jimmy, change the channel" what seemed like every 5min.

I WAS his TV remote. ;)

Exactly! And by the time we got old enough to have kids we had remote controls. That's why I never bothered with children.

How about Lucy hatching a scheme to work at Ricky's Nightclub?
The Ropers overhearing Jack saying something that sounds sexual?
Ralph Kramden tries a million dollar get rich quick scheme?
Jethro tries another profession?
Laverne & Shirley get mad at each other?
Mork misunderstands the English language?
Louie is mean to the cabbies?
Diane and Sam have another fight?
Nothing happens on Seinfeld?
Mary has problems dating and there's problems at the TV station?
Hawkeye keeps womanizing the new nurse, but helps a soldier overcome his fear... and does an emergency operation?
Archie rants about the Meatheads political views?
Dick writes a new sketch that involves his family life?
Ray has problems with his parents and his wife won't give him any sex?

Just some off the top of my head

What about Bullwinkle with the hat. You'd think he'd learn to check his props by now!

Or the episode of Happy Days where Richie and his chums get into trouble but luckily the Fonz arrives to save the day.

And on the serious drama side of things I liked that episode of Kung Fu where Caine preached humility, peace and understanding but unfortunately was forced to kick the living cr*p out of everybody at the end of the show.

Don't diss Kung Fu, buddy.

It was the greatest show in the history of television.

Oh and that episode of the Incredible Hulk where the bad guys attack David Banner but they throw him through a door so that he changes into the Hulk out of sight and his secret is safe for another week. I think that was also the epidsode where he and Jack McGee came close to meeting again and the whole secret i.d. thing would have been out. Luckily, through somewhat fortuitous circumstances, this didn't happen.

STOP IT! STOP THE BEARS!

You people know how to cut to the quick.

BEARS!

Gentle Ben and Clint Howard plagued my dreams last night, and now Mr Gilgamesh is playing games with my deepest fears. I curse the day I admitted I fear bears.

Mr Gilgamesh: you are on my list. I will discover what you fear and then I will torment you with it.

How about the episode of Lost in Space where they almost made it back to Earth but Dr. Smith screwed things up. .... Wait a minute, were we talking about Gilligans Island or Lost in Space?

Just to help you out, this isn't far away from being the scariest thing ever :

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=O39SBFGOL1s&feature=related

I can't watch this without having flashbacks to a science fiction convention I once went to in the UK where a fight broke out between two groups arguing who was the scariest monster - King Kong or Big Foot out of the Six Million Dollar Man. And I mean a fight.

Humanoid hairy shapes have been scary for me ever since.

Not for me. I must apologize. Apparently you were just teasing everyone, and weren't targeting me specifically with bears...like other people around here do.

Maybe you never read this thread:

http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?topic=251934&forum=32

On the other hand, maybe you HAVE read the thread. And if you were trying to upset me, well...

...well done.

That Grizzly bear VS the Hulk clip is probably going to give me nightmares for a week.

I can't let my last post just go without exhorting everybody to watch the link in it.

1) Its the Hulk vs a Gorilla !!!

2) Said Gorilla seems a tad intelligent - when he sees Banner changing he does his utmost get his dibs in first.

3) The incredible Hulk sucker punching a gorilla

4) A gorilla that picks up big sticks of wood to smack you down with, throws the odd punch and the odd micro-wave.

It is just genius.

Wasn't the pilot episode done as a straight drama? Then they realized they could get money for a yuck fest. And who played the first Ginger and what ever happened to her?

"Gilligan's Island" was a cheap "Dusty's Trail" rip-off.

If you really want to know about the original Ginger, take a look at [url=http://bobdenver.com/Gilligan_s_Guest_Stars/The_Pilot_Page/the_pilot_page.html]Bob Denver's[/url] page.

No, the good one was when they went on that "3 hour tour"...that was a good one...

I always wanted to be on that show. But now I hear that the show is in re-runs. I wonder if they can get me on one of those....

Did you see the episode of "Hogan's Heroes" where this big German named Sgt. Schultz says, "I hear nothing! I see...NOTHING!!!"

My favorite episode of Saturday Night Live in the one where the regular cast member whose last name begins with the letter F tries desperately to be funny, but fails and really only proves that they're trying too hard.

One of my favorite shows was "The A-Team".

I really liked the episode where they were running from the government, but had time to help some nice people who were being mistreated by criminals.

It was also the one where Mr. T got mad at Murdock, called him a "crazy fool" and growled at him.

That was a *great* episode.

Seriously, best episode of Gillian's Island would be the mad doctor episode where they got their brains switched. Watch them try to do each other's mannerisms.

Anyway my favorite episode of "I Dream of Jeannie" is where she tries to do something nice for Major Nelson and ends up getting him into trouble!

I just remembered an episode of "The Munsters" I saw a few years ago.

Herman goes to some sort of public place - you know, the kind where you're likely to see a lot of people? And man, he just scares the bejeebers out of everyone! It was *so* funny!

I wonder if they did any other episodes like that?
