Mine shafted
18 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

A throwback to the seriousness of the first season, "Mine Hero" begins with Gilligan reeling in a WW2 mine that remains active, and can explode at any time. Mr. Howell naturally assumes that Gilligan's mine is gold or diamonds, only to be disappointed by what he calls an 'overgrown pin cushion.' The Professor has been gathering metal to make an anchor for a raft intended to enter the shipping lanes, which the magnetized mine follows out of the lagoon. When the Skipper again advises Gilligan to catch something big for dinner, the mine's unexpected return accomplishes just that. Not as good as it could have been, but still amusing.
