Three wishes before sundown
8 June 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Three to Get Ready" is a fanciful idea that suffers from obvious padding. Gilligan discovers a cat's eye piece of quartz that the Skipper insists is the eye of the idol Mentuzar that grants the lucky finder three wishes between now and sundown. While the Professor argues against superstition, Gilligan wishes for a gallon of ice cream, which miraculously washes up in the lagoon. The other castaways are convinced of its authenticity, but with two more wishes to go Gilligan overtaxes his brain trying to come up with something that will please everybody. A spontaneous wish for a gallon of vanilla ice cream also comes true, leaving only one left, which the Skipper insists must be to get the castaways rescued. Just when it's time for number three, Gilligan's pocket hole leads to a dragged out search for the missing eye, eventually found by Ginger just before dusk. The resulting disaster is both fitting and logical, though it took far too long to get there.
