Mr. Howell is beside himself
18 June 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Will the Real Mr. Howell Please Stand Up?" was the first of three episodes in which a castaway is replaced by an imposter, but unlike Ginger (in "All About Eva") or Gilligan (in "Gilligan vs. Gilligan") it makes perfect sense that the wealthy and powerful Thurston Howell should be the obvious first choice. The shocking radio broadcast announcing the rescue of Thurston Howell has the real McCoy thirsting to kill, but frustrated that he's not able to swim to Hawaii. An offer of 1 million dollars to find a way to get him off the island has everyone scrambling for ideas. He actively encourages his wife to give it a try: "can you think of a better way of keeping the money in the family?" Gilligan makes a pair of wings that actually seem to work! The imposter incredibly falls off of his chartered yacht, winding up on the island where Howell meets Howell face to face over the final 8 minutes, brief but worth the wait.
