John McGiver as Lord Beasley
19 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

"Man with a Net" guest stars John McGiver in the title role of Lord Beasley Waterford, world famous butterfly collector, on the trail of the pussycat swallowtail, the rarest species in the entire world. He arrived by boat, with a flare pistol to signal when he's ready to leave, eccentric to the point of sinking in quicksand or falling from cliffs in his single minded search. Lord Beasley's insufferable attitude has all seven castaways carrying nets around the island, unsure if they can even identify a pussycat swallowtail. The Professor tries to impress him through crib notes, while the Skipper fails to convince by painting a butterfly. John McGiver was a fine comic actor but this just isn't one of the funnier episodes.
