  • In this episode, Dr Boris Balinkoff returns to the island, this time with mind-controlling rings. He uses them on several different castaways, in an effort to prepare them for the greatest crime of all time. He wants to them to rob Fort Knox!

    In the area of the Internet that deals with mind control, this episode of Gilligan's Island stands out above every other episode of every other TV show. Of course, Gilligan, being the star, spends the most time under Balinkoff's control, but Mrs. Howell, the Skipper and Ginger get their time in the spotlight. Tina Louise does a brilliant 'human robot', and gets controlled while wearing her rarely seen leopard-skin swimsuit. All the castaways are controlled to fetch coconuts at night, while they sleep. We get to see Mary Ann, in her oversized man's shirt, and Ginger, in her blanket (Ginger sleeps in the nude). This episode is a must-see for any fan of pretty women being hypnotized to do a Master's bidding.
