As Hit show Lost drags out into a third season, writers realized that they needed help from seasoned experts. When trying to come up with interminable plots about shipwrecked boors and clowns on a desert island, where else should you turn except to the consummate recyclers of castaway plots, the auteurs of Gilligan's Island.
ABC producers search the isolated islands of Hollywood's nursing homes to find the now senile and Alzeimerish creative geniuses of the 60's big hit show. And gold they struck as a motherlode of shipwrecked scripts were dumped into their laps for a sea shanty.
Upcoming episodes of Lost will recycle plots about cannibals , accidentally abandoned Hollywood starlets and a drunk in a monkey suit dropped off on the island during a fraternity hazing. All this combined with the constantly shifting timeframes and steel plated characters resistant to any interesting changes will surely guarantee an emee or at least an enema.
