    The preacher was talking about the 7 deadly sins and he said that the creator of the show said each of the 7 characters represented a deadly sin and that the reason they could never get off of the island was because the sins kept them from doing so...or something along those lines.

    So what sins go along with what characters?

    I'm guessing Ginger was Lust...other than that I got nothing.

    Thanks!

    Wow. Preacher has a point.

    The Howels were greed.
    lust was Ginger (figures. I like red heads)
    Gluttony was skipper
    Pride would be the professor
    Sloth would be Gilligan
    Envy would be Marry Ann

    The Mr Howel was a different sin from Mrs. Howel...I'm guessing Mr. was Greed while Mrs. was Sloth....since she was as useful as teets on a boar hog.

    Maryann was envy.

    Gilligan was sloth.

    Skipper was glutteny and wrath (just ask Gilligan)

    1. Most obvious is the Professor, who fits PRIDE to a T. Any man who can make a ham radio out of some wire and two coconuts has to be pretty cocky. His character was later revised and given a series of his own, called "MacGyver."

    2. For the sin of ENVY we need look no further than Maryann, who may have worn those skimpy little tops, but could never achieve Ginger's glamour. (As an interesting and completely irrelevant side note, a nationwide survey of college students a few years ago revealed that the professor and Maryann were voted the most likely couple to have 'done it' on the island.)

    3. And who could doubt for a moment that Ginger is LUST incarnate? Sure, the kids were supposed to think she was ACTING, but we all know what being deprived episode after episode was doing to her. You know and I know that glazed look wasn't boredom, my friends.

    4. What kind of person takes a trunk full of money on a three-hour cruise? Mr.Howell gets my vote for GREED.

    We are now left with three characters and three Deadly Sins. We have Gilligan, the Skipper and Mrs. Howell to whom we must match GLUTTONY, SLOTH and ANGER. As you can see, there is a Gilligan problem here.

    5. Certainly we can further eliminate Mrs. Howell from this equation by connecting her with SLOTH. She did jack **** during her many years on the island and everybody knows it.

    6,7. This leaves ANGER and GLUTTONY, either of which the Skipper had no shortage. He was, after all, a big guy with the tendency to hit Gilligan with his hat at least once an episode. After much consideration, I have decided that he can easily do double-duty, covering the two remaining Deadly Sins.

    So here we have the Seven Deadly Sins trapped in an endlessly recurring Hell of hope followed by denial and despair, forced to live with each other in our TVs until the last re-run ends. And who is their captor? What keeps them trapped there? Gilligan.

    Gilligan is SATAN. Think about it.

    If things went bad she would have made a good source for protein.

    What about Envy and Wrath? Were they in the episode where Gilligan finds Mary-Anne's head in a box, then shoots the Professor? Or am I thinking of something else?

    MaryAnn had nothing to envy of anyone.
    That girl was hot hot hot.

    Gilligan? Sloth? He was the hardest working guy on the island. Stupid, maybe, but sloth?

    Mary Ann? You may envy her, but on the show she didn't envy anyone.

    That Preacher needs to work his stuff better.

    Ginger. Nothing I can post about her would not violate the posting rules.

    Most of the replies here disagree on what sins match up to which characters...so how does that translate to the preacher needing to "work on his stuff better"? :dunno:

    A) he apparently did it so poorly that you can't remember it
    B) Schwartz said it isn't so

    "SS: I don't know. A lot of people have written to me saying they understand that's the seven deadly sins. That was never in my mind, but they've explained it to me [laughs]. "

    Ummm... it was a TV show. And for it's time, a pretty damn good one. I know I enjoyed the ENTERTAINMENT it provided. BUT while the Ginger character was attractive, I found the down home country girl look of Mary-Ann far more enticing and sexy. But that's just me.:supergrin:
