Equal Rights for the Equally Scared...
29 July 2013 | by (Sooner Nation) – See all my reviews

Mary Ann, Ginger and Mrs. Howell strike out to build their own hut after the men have failed to build one for them. Both camps struggle to get by and the men concoct a plan to scare them back to their side.

Failing miserably, the men finally decide to give up and head off to apologize when the women spot another "monster" and think it's the men...but it isn't. Is this monster really dangerous? No matter, Gilligan will find a way to screw things up.

A rather odd, out of place episode in the sense that for the past several shows it has been strongly implied that the Howells and the girls have their own huts. Yet here we are back in the "community" hut once again. Clearly, this episode was shot earlier in the production order than when it was scheduled to be released. But perhaps not too much earlier since Ginger is wearing her "SS Minnow" dress which was introduced in "Three Million Dollars More or Less" Highlights include the men sending the women off with a song, the "monster" created by the men, the individual dream sequences, particularly Gilligan's since it make little sense, Mr. Howell's failed attempt at talking to the ladies in their hut, Ginger's realization that the second "monster" is not the men and Gilligan taking on the "dragon".

Above average, but not by a whole lot. This episode certainly has its moments, but it is only fitfully funny.

  • Mr. Howell proclaims that he's been married to Mrs. Howell for "19

wonderful years"'s been "20 years" at least since "Home Sweet Hut", the 2nd episode of the season. However, later in episode he states that he's been married for "22 years"...well, if he doesn't know what pill he takes for dinner, I suppose he can't be expected to know how long he's been married.

  • You know, we've seen the Skipper cooking meals before such as in

"Home Sweet Hut"...yet he seems to have forgotten that skill in this episode.

  • Not to pick on the ladies too much, but their hut looks pretty

ramshackle to say the least.

  • It seems that the helium supply from the last episode "Gilligan Meet

Jungle Boy" has run out since the Professor says they should use the hot air generated from a fire to inflate the balloon.
