Last year I uncovered evidence of nefarious goings on among the castaways on Gilligan's Island. Long thought to be a family friendly sitcom, I believe that the show is much more subversive than it's given credit for.
The other day I was watching the show with my kids and found further support for my theory. Gilligan is walking along when the Professor, hiding in nearby bushes, shoves a bamboo stick out and trips our hapless hero. After he falls you can clearly see the butt of a cigarette in the sand by his hand.
Obviously the castaways aren't the happy-go-lucky innocents (except Ginger) they pretend to be. Smoking weed. Cigarettes. Booze. What else is going on behind the scenes? Attempts to raise Ry'leh. Crossbreeding with the Deep Ones? Having their bodies switched around by a mad scientist? The mind boggles.
