If I was going to be trapped on a deserted island with anyone it would definitely be Nathan Fillion because being stuck with Gilligan would be pure hell…


“Years after the show ended, its creator, Sherwood Schwartz, admitted that each of the characters represented one of the seven deadly sins — Pride (the Professor), Anger (Skipper), Lust, (Ginger), and the rest. Gilligan was supposed to be Sloth.

But a closer viewing indicates that the island may well have been Hell — and the red-clad Gilligan the devil who kept them on his island.”

I got my theological entertainment from MacGyver and The A Team.

    What was Mary Ann — Envy? Gluttony doesn’t seem right.

    Anyway, you take Nathan Fillion. I’ll take Cote de Pablo.

    Nathan Fillion as Malcolm Reynolds or Nathan Fillion as Captain Hammer?

  • Peony Moss

    I always had thought of Mary Ann as Envy, Gilligan as Gluttony, Skipper as Wrath, and Mrs Howell as Sloth. (Giner – Lust; Professor – Pride, Mr Howell – Avarice.)

    • Peony Moss

      That would be Ginger = Lust, of course.

    I never understood: were they in heaven at the end? And what the heck was that black-smoke monster thingy?

    And what was with that one guy who talked to the Volleyball named Wilson?
