Gilligan

Quick Before It Sinks - S2-E6

New this week Plot hole: Gilligan admits he put the Professor's measuring stick in deeper and deeper waters to catch bigger lobster. So wouldn't the Professor have noticed the stick has been moved further out (and more than once too) in the water rather than think the island is sinking? He always had all positions and locations down to a science in many episodes, so how could this have gotten past him?

Castaways Pictures Presents - S2-E7

New this month Plot hole: This movie was made so the castaways could be rescued, but how could they be found? The map the Skipper was pointing to didn't have anything on it that could realistically show where they exactly were, and all scenes in the film wouldn't help them get found at all, just made for good laughs.

Marooned - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When they are listening to the radio report describing the lost boat, the professor goes from standing up to sitting down between shots.

Joe Tomlin

The Friendly Physician - S2-E29

Factual error: When the castaways are coming back to the island at the end, you can see some of the Los Angeles buildings in the background on the high camera angle.

Joe Tomlin

Gilligan's Personal Magnetism - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: When Gilligan knocks the door off the hut it lands on the Skipper's neck with the life preserver on the top. In the next shot the preserver is on the bottom.

Mister Ed

The Chain of Command - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When Gilligan falls off of the cliff at the end, he is wearing different clothes and facing a different way than he was when he fell off.

Joe Tomlin

The Hunter - S3-E18

Revealing mistake: As Gilligan sits in front of a large boulder, the disguised charge that simulates a bullet strike is easily seen.

Movie Nut

Nyet, Nyet, Not Yet - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: The professor mentions he can't drink vodka with the Russians because he's allergic to alcohol, yet in the episode "Man With A Net" (with Lord Beesley), he drinks a strong alchoholic drink he made along with everyone else with no signs of any sickness, or reaction preventing him from drinking it.

Operation: Steam Heat - S2-E25

Revealing mistake: After Gilligan says his line about the earth swallowing them all up, an explosion rocks the area. Between the end of the line, and the rocking, there's a split second of blackness indicating a cut between the line and the action.

Movie Nut

Show generally

Revealing mistake: Any time you see the vines used for different purposes, it's painfully obvious that they're very poorly disguised rope, such as the ones the Skipper and Professor use to rock the boat mock-up in the episode "Quick, Before It Sinks."

Movie Nut

Operation: Steam Heat - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: The professor wound the clock on the bomb by turning the hand to nine. A second after it was tossed in, it reads eight. It then takes about about fifteen seconds between the numbers to get to zero.

Movie Nut

Operation: Steam Heat - S2-E25

Revealing mistake: When Gilligan and Ginger are in the cave at the volcano, you can see that the steam in the two passageway openings behind them is being shot in from jet nozzles.

Movie Nut

The Producer - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: Harold Hecuba (a.k.a. H.H.) goes out to change costumes. When he comes in as Ophelia the stage door first closes behind him, then falls off the hinges. The shot cuts to the Castaways, then back to H.H., and the door is back on the hinges.

Movie Nut

The Secret of Gilligan's Island - S3-E25

Other mistake: At the end, the Professor and Skipper walk up on Gilligan, who's busy chiseling a message on a stone. Look carefully, because he's hitting the chisel, but the tip never touches the stone, and the 'E' in 'HOME SWEET HOME' (the message Gilligan is working on) is plainly visible.

Movie Nut

The Hunter - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: The target Ramu draws has a small mark in the center. A moment later, the mark is broad and runs top to bottom through the small circle.

Movie Nut

Court-Martial - S3-E17

Revealing mistake: In Gilligan's dream sequence, when the pirate goes to hit his fencing foil, the score mark where the break was supposed to happen is plainly visible, and he's holding it very still for the gag.

Movie Nut

The Kidnapper - S3-E12

Visible crew/equipment: As Gilligan runs along, stuck in the hollow log, the wires holding it up and guiding it are visible toward the top of the shot.

The Invasion - S3-E11

Revealing mistake: After the Skipper throws the attache case in the lagoon, it explodes. Problem is that the lagoon water and the water with the explosion are in two different areas, and where the explosion is, there was no case floating. Just markers floating where the explosive is placed underwater.

The Invasion - S3-E11

Revealing mistake: In the dream sequence, the boss, E.V.I.L., is bald. You can see the line of the skin wig he has on.

Topsy-Turvy - S3-E10

Other mistake: At the end, after Mary Ann puts the pie down, and Gilligan drinks the juice, he hits the table, flipping the pie into the skipper's face. First, the Skipper starts to wince when Gilligan hits the table, preparing for the gag. Second, the pie tin defies physics by staying exactly in place on the board after the pie leaves it, and after the board bounces once and settles down. Third, Gilligan dips his finger directly into the cream on the Skipper's face, rather than missing a few times.
