“Um, John? How did we wind up on Gilligan’s Island?”

The ending of the Island of Misfit Young Lovers was so hilariously rushed that they might as well have had Ron Carlivati pop up onscreen and tell us, “I really do not want to deal with this any more than you guys do, okay? So just pretend something exciting happened to get them back to Salem.” I mean, that’s essentially what’s John explanation was, anyway: “Uh, we were flying around these islands and we saw dense cover, so we decided to check it out and you dopes were so busy talking about your love lives that you didn’t even notice a jet flying overhead or landing, so here we are!” Couldn’t he at least have said they saw the flare that was shot off last night and had finally narrowed its location down to this island? Good grief.

I still can’t get over the fact that there have apparently been all sorts of law enforcement officials looking for these people — and the plane they crashed — for days, and these two 60-somethings were just flying around and happened to find them. Then again, half the people trapped on the island were law enforcement, and they were too stupid to even ration their food supply, so maybe it’s best we all rely on the veteran agents here.

I’d be curious to know how this was actually supposed to end and what was cut. Not curious enough to watch it play out, but you know, I’d read a short summary or something.

    The Carlivati era begins July 19th!

      They completely wrapped it up on Monday. It was such a “Oh, time for this to end” move. This is definitely the beginning of the Carlivati tweaking…
