Where there is a Frog, there is Water...
28 July 2013 | by (Sooner Nation) – See all my reviews

We begin with Gilligan pumping water for the new garden when suddenly the spring dries up. With the castaways in a dire predicament unless they find a new source of water, the entire group bands together to pool their water supply until a new well is dug.

Naturally, Gilligan manages to lose all the water and his subsequent guilt is enough to have him leave the rest of the castaways. But before he can, a very wet frog lands in front of him and Gilligan decides to follow the frog to fresh water.

Highlights include the Skipper's divining rod, the Howells' and the girls' attempt to steal from the water supply, and the finale where a lit match does more harm than good.

Perhaps this is the ultimate definition of a "middling" episode for Gilligan's Island. While the concept is good and some of the jokes work, some of the bits don't work very well or are just not that funny, such as when Gilligan follows the frog. It also doesn't help that a similar issue about the water supply was addressed before in a much better episode, "President Gilligan". A "bang" of an ending spices things up, but it's not really enough to make this episode memorable.

  • The water pump contraption we see at the beginning of the episode is

simply ingenious and a credit to the imagination of the prop department.

  • While we do see the shower make a reappearance from "President

Gilligan", it has moved to another part of the island. Plus, Ginger doesn't seem to be very concerned about her state of dress at times...which is a good thing....:)

  • A continuity error takes place as Gilligan is taking a "shower".

While the bucket appears nearly full when Gilligan was using it, when the Skipper tries, it's now completely empty. Plus, shouldn't the shower have a wooden floor or at least a plank to stand on instead of just standing in the mud?

  • It's pretty easy to see the string that is used to hoist up

Gilligan's hat which supposedly contains the frog.

  • While some may question why, if the cave indeed has that much

explosive gas in it, does it not overwhelm Gilligan and the Skipper. A better question might be how did the Skipper keep his matches from getting wet?
