Wait...they are making a Gilligan's Island movie?!

Maybe the Professor was just being pragmatic. Ginger appeared to be a bit of a slut and I doubt anyone had protection on the island (well maybe The Skipper and Gilligan).

That show made no sense on every level anyway. Now Three's Company, that's a 70's show can could use a revisiting.

He was absent-minded and focused on his work.  Sure, it could work making him gay.  But I don't see it as necessary.

And who's Gad playing?  Gilligan, I assume.

Really?  Neither homosexuality nor coed cohabitation are a big deal anymore.

It seems that every five years there is an article talking about a Gilligan's Island reboot, but the project never gets out of development hell. I remember in the 80s there was an article that said Madonna was cast as Ginger.

Weird. Just the other day I was thinking to my self, "Self, you know what this crazy world desperately needs? A new Gilligan's Island movie!"

Did anyone notice the daughter's face is crooked?

/Jennifer Lawrence would make a better Mary Ann,

Agreed.

I say make Sofia Vergara Ginger.  It would be a little goofy.  But we are talking Gilligan's Island after all.

I could never stand how Lost tried to be a gritty Gilligan's Island reboot.
 
2013-12-20 09:37:03 AM  
Alright I'll get this started. Mary Ann was way hotter than Ginger.

Of course the reality is any island with a land mass and resources necessary to sustain a population of seven (as well as the occasional guest star) at the level depicted in the TV show is already inhabited, if not by permanent settlements then sporadically by research teams or tourists.
 
2013-12-20 09:43:41 AM  
Or how's about making the professor a eunuch, or and orangutan, or a child genius, or an alien or a robot, or how's about not making another Gilligan's island?
 
2013-12-20 09:44:55 AM  
I remember watching a few episodes of the Gilligan's Island reboot. The skipper was a bald guy with cult-like obsessiveness. Gilligan was a rock star, the Professor was a doctor, Ginger had a baby, and Mary-Anne was constantly flirting with Gambit (why they added the X-Men to Gilligan's Island, I'll never know). There were other weird changes, like how they got to the island via a plane crash, and fat people played golf.
 
2013-12-20 09:45:36 AM  
And we care what the DAUGHTER of one of the original cast has to say....why?
 
2013-12-20 09:45:58 AM  
If you're going to do it, then do something with it. Tokenism helps no one.

I'll save you the link to TV Tropes, but in the Gilligan's Island character page, they note asexuality saying:

The one time Ginger tried her sexual wiles on him he was completely immune. Also was oblivious to the charms of a character played by Zsa Zsa Gabor.
- At some point in his past, the Professor had a girlfriend but lost interest in her because she was more interested in "hugging and kissing" than intelligent conversation.
- May be a case of Single-Target Sexuality since, in the beauty pageant episode, he argues with the other men about which of the island's women is the most desirable. He alone chose Mary Ann.
 
2013-12-20 09:49:35 AM  
They should make the Professor have Autistic Spectrum Disorder, so that he has virtually no interest in human interaction and he randomly produces brilliant inventions made from native resources, but no one can manage his genius and drive him to create a way to leave the island.

LOL.  Very well done.

Wellon Dowd: Renee Olstead


First reaction: wow!

Second reaction: could she be a little too short?   I'm not saying not right for the part, just worth thinking about.
 
2013-12-20 09:53:58 AM  
I'm so excited, I was very disappointed when it went off the air.

/go go gilligan
//Mary Ann > Ginger
///I bet lovie was wild in the sack

Why in the hell does this even need to come up?  They were virtually asexual in the original show.
The only time sex came up in the show was when the skipper and Gilligan would get flustered when Ginger flirted with them.

I guess the professor being gay would explain why he was immune to Ginger flirting to try and get something, but that still seems unnecessary and wouldn't explain why Ginger kept trying to flirt with him to get things.

I think the reboot is called "New Girl".

But will the new Professor build coconut dildos for anyone who wanted one?

Then how about an edgy reboot of Mr Ed?  Beastality is still a no-no, I think....well, until the liberals
get their fingers into.

She's related to an obscure B TV star from the 60's. If that isn't street-cred, I don't know what is.

"My mom was constantly coming on to the Professor on the show, and he was never into it," said Crane, a writer based in Los Angeles. "So the Professor could be the gay one. It would explain a lot. It would be fun if they shake it up, make it worthy of today's times."

Yes because if a man turns down a woman's advances he's obviously gay. Or it could possibly be because it was a family friendly show in an age where sexual situations weren't depicted on television.

There are two basic truths in the universe. Mary Ann was hotter than Ginger. Baily was hotter than Jennifer.

No. You are incorrect. Jadzia was way hotter.

Ezri vs. Jadzia is the only pairing where I admit the possible validity of the opposing viewpoint.
