Gilligans Island made Sherwood Schwartzs other major contribution to society, The Brady Bunch, look like Shakespeare. It was foul. Worse, it was nonsensical. What the hell were a movie star, a brilliant professor, and a millionaire (and his wife!) doing on a mangy scow like the Minnow, anyhow? Mary Ann, the simpleminded yokel, was the only one who fit the three-hour-tour demographic and look how she turned out. Yikes! Still, the series did instigate one of the longest-running debates in pop-culture history Ginger or Mary Ann? and you can state your case during the Ginger and Mary Ann Costume Contest. The competitions part of the new Ladies (Wahine) Night weekly, which also includes a Hawaiian-shirt contest, DJ spins, food and drink specials, and giveaways.
