  • The third (and final) season begins with Gilligan being bitten by a bat. Gilligan believes the bite will cause him to transform into a vampire. The Professor tries to assure him that is nonsense, but Gilligan just won't accept it.


    Good evening. "Up at Bat" is a terrific way to start the final season. The episode certainly delivers its share of laughs. The use of the erie organ music throughout the episode adds to the episode's entertainment value. No review of this episode can be complete without mention of the excellent dream sequence. The cast of Gilligan's Island has repeatedly said over the years that episodes with dream sequences were their favorite. Once you see this episode, you will understand why. The cast is excellent as their respective characters. Tina Louise, in my opinion, gives her best performance of the series as Count Gilligan's wife. Before Twilight and True Blood there was "Up at Bat". This episode outdoes them both by a mile!
