9 Crazy Conspiracy Theories About Popular Shows
Everyone loves a conspiracy theory. The juicier they are, and the more far out there…the better. Most theories are easy to dismiss, but there are others that are backed by some impressive evidence, and they’ll force you to ponder for hours. Some take you so far down the rabbit hole it’s hard to dismiss them, or disprove them. The following list contain some crazy conspiracy theories about famous TV shows, and while some carry weight — one is particularly haunting — most are totally outrageous. Enjoy nine of the best.
9. Bayside High: A Zack Morris Dream
Let’s start with a classic. Zack Morris was the main character of the hit TV serial, Saved By The Bell, but before it was Saved By The Bell, the show was entitled, Good Morning, Miss Bliss, and it didn’t take place in California — these kids were from Indiana. Zack was neither a ladies man, or the really cool guy of the school. He was just a fella in the mix, who was sweet, paid attention in class, best friends with a dork named Screech and enjoyed a Middle-America, middle class upbringing. The theory: When NBC took over the show, everything became Zack’s dream…of what he wishes life were like. His life in California, his life being a ladies man, his life being a jock, being the class cut-up, yet still scoring off the charts on standardized tests. Hmmm…we can go with this one. It’s got some legs.
8. Gilligan’s Island Is Hell
“Just sit right back, and you’ll hear a tale… a tale of a fateful trip…” …to HELL! Let’s consider the main characters in Gilligan’s Island. According to conspiracy theorists, each is said to represent one of Dante’s seven deadly sins. Mr. Howell represents greed, his wife, Lovey, represents Sloth — she never lifted a finger. The Skipper? He’s gluttony and wrath, because he’s always beating on Gilligan. Ginger represents lust, and therefore, Mary Ann represents envy. The professor is full of pride, and never willing to admit he cannot get these people off the island. And Gilligan himself? He’s what the Hebrews called “Adversary.” In a cooler language: “Satan.” Gilligan is the one who is always throwing the wrench into the best laid plans, causing everything to run amok. Kudos to the writers if they used such historical reference to create this comedic romp.
