Next up: "The Creeping Terror"

Show 606: "The Creeping Terror", first broadcast 9/17/1994

The Film: From 1964, this is a low-budget alien invasion movie. Apparently most of the dialogue tracks were lost, so that the film consists largely of stilted narration.  The monster in this is extremely goofy.

The Host Segments: Security guard Servo makes Mike sign in. The Mads are sorting their laundry.  Dr. F sets out that you can't be in a coffee shop and not be pretentious. Mike and the Bots raise the flag of the SOL. Later, they parody "Love, American Style". Mike listens to music from the movie on his stereo system.  Gypsy swallows Servo and Mike reads some letters.  Dr. F puts Frank's head through a wringer.

Favorite Lines:

  • "Ben never asked Martin another question."
  • "At this point, the director attempted an arty sort of shot."
  • "Well, you see, when a monster and a small car love each other very much..."

Rating: A fairly amusing episode. One of my favorites.  A mixture of good riffing and funny host segments.

Show 415: "The Beatniks", first broadcast 11/25/1992

The Short: Another old episode of "General Hospital", in which an engagement party is awkward.

The Film: From 1960, this is the story of a young punk who gets a shot at a music career, but has trouble escaping the influence of his low-life friends. Written and directed by Paul Frees!  A so-so melodrama. Contains the line "Shut up, Iris!" which would be used many times over the years. 

The Host Segments: Joel plays sadistic Rock-Paper-Scissors with Crow and Servo.  Gypsy saves them.  The Mads invent Good Luck troll Costumes. Joel invents Pocket Pool.  Joel and the Bots question the authenticity of the Beatniks in the film and discuss signs that you're not a beatnik. The Bots have a slumber party and are all gaga over Tony Travis.  Joel has his number, so they call him, and he turns out to be a disappointment. Joel and the Bots enact the meteoric rise and fall of singing sensation Tom Servo.  Hoodlum Crow (rubber) knifes Servo.

Rating: An OK episode.

Show 1007: "Track of the Moon Beast", first broadcast 6/13/1999

The Film: From 1976, the story of a guy who becomes a were-lizard.  Badly-made nonsense.

The Host Segments: Crow and Servo have acquired an onions blossomer. Pearl has hooked up a remote control to Bobo's brain. The Bots re-enact a scene from the movie. Mike ignores them.  Mike narrates "The Band That Played California Lady".  Crow and Servo spy on Mike's naptime. Servo accidentally shoots a satellite. Its mother comes to pick it up.  Pearl messes with Bobo and Observer's brains.

Rating: Yet another OK episode.

Written by Bill Finger.

...The pop-folk singer Roger Whittaker was a character in this one ???

The Baron said:

Show 903: "Puma Man", first broadcast 4/4/1998

The Film: From 1980, this is possibly the worst super-hero film ever. Donald Pleasence is the villain. Was he desperate for cash in those days, is that what was going on?

The Host Segments:  Servo has Short Man's disease.  Pearl is holding a ball, but no one shows up because they're all watching "Sliders" with Observer.  Mike gets a new haircut, with bad results.  Crow and Servo designate Mike as Coatimundi Man.  He is underwhelmed.  Crow and Servo take control of Roger Whittaker.  Crow quits, but comes right back. Roger Whittaker (Kevin Murphy) shows up at Pearl's ball.

Rating: A mildly amusing episode.

Show 807: "Terror from the Year 5000", first broadcast 3/15/1997

The Film:  From 1958. Scientists experimenting with a time scoop bring back a woman from a post-nuclear future. Salome Jens, who would later play the head changeling on "Deep Space Nine", plays the eponymous terror. Not that bad of a picture, actually.  

The Host Segments:  Servo is obsessed with comfort rating things.  This is one of the episodes when they were visiting the planet of the Observers (Mike,Bill, Paul).  They force Pearl and Bobo to fight to the death. Their power doesn't seem to work on Mike and the Bots, who beat up an Observer (Paul) who visits them.  The Observers send Mike and the Bots some of their food pills.  Mike has the Nanites whip up a time machine. He is afraid to use it, so he sends Crow back. Crow spends eleven years living with Mike's family.  The Observers sing "When I Held Your Brain in My Arms".   Mike sets Crow up on a blind date with the Terror from the Year 5000 (Beez McKeever).  Pearl refuses to kill Bobo.  the Observers decide to dissect them.

Favorite Lines:

  • "Remember, when making a dramatic film, be sure to use genuine actors."
  • "Now we get to watch people watching a movie? what's that all about?" 

Rating:  A pretty good episode, with some fun host segments.

Not in the movie. The Bots just happened to pick on him for some reason.

Show 814: "Riding With Death", first broadcast 7/19/1997

The Film: From 1976, this is two episodes of the show "Gemini Man" strung together.  Forgettable 70's TV.  

The Host Segments: Mike cooks up some Japanese cuisine.  Pearl, Bobo and Observer are under enemy fire. Mike destroys the planet with a baking soda bomb.   Servo sings a  song about the 70's (AD 70 - 79). Servo is a trucker. Crow is Turkey Volume Guessing Man.  Mike and the Bots parody the characters from the movie.  Pearl awards herself medals.

Rating: An OK episode.

Show 804: "The Deadly Mantis", first broadcast 2/22/1997

The Film:  From 1957, a giant mantis appears, and begins annoying people.  A serviceable 50's big bug movie.

The Host Segments: Servo declares Business Casual Day on the SOL.  The Apes are visited by their neighbors the Bomb Mutants (Paul, Bill, Beez), and try to help them activate their bomb.  Mike unthinkingly helps them do so, and the Earth is destroyed.  Mike and the Bots hold a wake for Pearl, but find that she and Bobo are alive and in hot pursuit. As they flee Pearl, Mike and the Bots can only find country music on the radio,  Servo hits a space creature, which tries to eat Crow.  Crow later makes the  creature into a meat loaf.  They get a letter from Peanut, who was thrown back in time by the blast to 2112, where he marries one of Mike's descendants.  Pearl and Bobo are still pursuing them.

Favorite Line:  "Foghat, Law-giver?"

Rating:  A fun episode. One of my favorites of this era.
