Goofs

When Gilligan, now invisible, supposedly drinks the contents of a glass in MaryAnn's hand through a straw, it empties out, but a small hose attached to it coming out of her sleeve is clearly visible. See more »

Another outlandish idea that works for GILLIGAN'S ISLAND
21 June 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Gilligan's Personal Magnetism" opens with a little bowling during an electrical storm, a bolt of lightning sending Gilligan 30 feet into the pins. When he awakens we find that his hand has lodged with the bowling ball, and that his touch means an electric shock. The girls get a jolt trying to kiss him, while the Howells attempt hypnosis without success. The Skipper learns how difficult it can be just to get the exhausted fellow into his hammock. All looks hopeless until another bolt of lightning dislodges the ball but renders Gilligan invisible! The Professor finds nothing unusual except a rapid pulse, and eventually designs a lead sheathed bandage that should absorb the charge that continues to surge through Gilligan's body, making him look like a fearsome mummy. One of the episodes that Sherwood Schwartz looked back on as the perfect babysitter for younger viewers!
