Show 315: "Teenage Caveman", first broadcast 11/9/1991

The Shorts: Two shorts in this episode. The first is "Aquatic Wizards" (1955), a quick look at the joys of water-skiing.  Was water-skiing a new thing back then, that they had to make a film describing it to people?

The second is "Catching Trouble" (1936), in which Ross Allen and his faithful Indian companion capture wild animals, much to the animals' apparent distress. This would make a good recruiting film for PETA.

The Film: From 1958, this features then 26 year-old Robert Vaughn as the titular troglodyte who questions the Word and the Law, and Frank De Kova (later the chief of the Hekawi on "F Troop") as his reactionary opponent, Also featuring the monster suit from "Night of the Blood Beast" as the God That Gives Death With Its Touch.  I enjoyed this picture when I was eight, being suitably impressed by the big reveal that they weren't prehistoric cavemen, but descendants of the survivors of a nuclear war.

The Host Segments:  Joel , Crow and Servo are bored on a rainy day. They invent Rainy Day Ipecacs. The Mads argue over who gets to present their invention. Violence ensues. Joel, Crow and Servo parody "Catching Trouble" as they hunt Ross Allen.  Frank and Dr. F have one of my all-time favorite comic fight scenes.  Joel, Crow and Servo talk about how people have always resisted change. Crow and Servo are the only survivors of a movie-watching experiment.  Frank and Forrester have a "General Foods International Coffee Moment".

Rating:  A pretty good episode. A fun film, fun shorts, and one of my all-time favorite host segments.

Oldies station called Rocket has announced they're going to show MST3000 on the weekends.

Interesting. Never heard of Rocket.

Show 622: "Angel's Revenge", first broadcast 3/11/1995

The Film:  From 1979, this is a really badly-made "Charlie's Angels" rip-off.  Featuring Jim Backus, Pat Buttram, Alan Hale Jr., Arthur Godfrey, Peter Lawford and Jack Palance, all of whom were presumably desperate for money, if they agreed to appear in this nonsense. Backus' performance is particularly embarrassing. As Crow put it, "This is the first movie Jim Backus made after he died." It certainly feels like it.

The Host Segments:  Crow has amnesia.  Mike hits him on the head.  The Mads dress up as their favorite 70's relief pitchers, Rollie Fingers and Tug McGraw.  They then turn Mike, Crow and Servo into the cast of "Renegade".  Crow writes a blaxploitation script. It doesn't go over well.  Mike is the Fonz. Crow and Servo fire a cannon at him. Aaron Spelling's house passes the SOL.  Servo invents the Shame-O- Meter.  The Mads are dressed as Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King.

Favorite Line: "By this time my lungs were aching for booze."

Rating: An OK episode. The 1970's were a strange and terrible time.

Next: "The Amazing Transparent Man"

Show 623: "The Amazing Transparent Man", first broadcast 3/18/1995

The Short: "The Days of Our Years" (1955) is a really depressing short produced by Union Pacific Railroad, in which the Reverend of Doom inveighs against carelessness leading to industrial accidents. Dark, unhappy stuff.

The Film: From 1960. a rogue military officer makes an escaped criminal invisible and uses him to commit crimes.  Not that bad of a picture. Kind of dark.

The Host Segments:  Crow is Servo's science project.  The Mads have started Auntie McFrank's Tangleberry Inn, hosting guests Barb and Ted (Mary Jo and Kevin).  Mike, Crow and Servo are recruited to be the "local color". They pose as rural defectives and frighten the guests away. Crow fails to learn a safety lesson. Frank doesn't get to see "Squanto" on his day off.  Mike has a little too much fun playing his electric organ.  Mike and the Bots discuss what they would do.  Dr. F and Auntie McFrank have dessert.

Favorite Line: "Remember to worship at the railroad of your choice."

Rating: Another OK episode.

Show 821: "Time Chasers", first broadcast 11/22/1997

The Film:  From 1994, an amateur hour time travel story.  You and your buddies could make a better picture using your phone camera.

The Host Segments: Crow and Servo do "Lost in Space" jokes. Mike chats with Pearl. Crow goes back to 1985 Wisconsin and tries to convince young Mike to take a different course in life and not end up on the SOL.  Crow convinces young Mike to quit his job at the dairy.  Returning to the SOL, Crow finds that Mike died young as a result of his advice, and his place on the SOL has been taken by Mike's abusive older brother Eddie.   Crow goes back to 1985 and convinces his younger self not to interfere in Mike's life, this restoring the timeline.  Observer goes a gag on the whole "local news obscuring the closing credits" thing.  Crow and Servo try to get Mike to say "Gilligan's Island". They fail. Mike and Pearl chat again , and she points out that there's still a Crow back in 1985 Wisconsin. We see that Crow working at the dairy.

Rating: A pretty good episode.  The movie isn't up to much, but the host segments are good. I like the time travel idea. 

Favorite Line: "Filmed in Vermont, the other, smaller Wisconsin."

Special: "The Making of Mystery Science Theater  3000", first broadcast 8/15/1997

A thirty minute look at the show's history and premise.  Some amusing bits where Mike and the Bots meta-comment on the behind-the-scenes stuff.

Next Up: "The Final Sacrifice"

Show 910: "The Final Sacrifice", first broadcast 7/25/1998

The Film: From 1990, a low-budget picture about a kid who comes into conflict with an ancient cult.  There is a character Zap Rowsdower, who became infamous among MSTies.

The Host Segments:  The power goes off in the SOL. Crow and Servo engage in inexpert looting.  Pearl tries to rule the world one person at a time. It doesn't go well.  Crow and Mike sing a song mocking Canadians, Servo takes it too far.  Everyone except Mike comes down with "hockey hair" Mike already had it back in the 80's.  Mike comes down with Grizzled Old Prospector Syndrome.  Crow and Servo form a cult. Pearl tries to take over a guy.

Rating: A fairly good episode.

Show 912: "The  Screaming Skull", first broadcast 8/29/1998

The Short:  "Robot Rumpus" (1956) is one of the earliest of the Gumby shorts. It's kind of odd.

The Film:  From 1958, a troubled young woman is convinced that she's being haunted by the ghost of her husband's first wife.  So-so melodrama.

The Host Segments:  Servo is a butterfly. Pearl and Company are dressed as penguins, but it's all a ruse.  Crow and Servo parody the Gumby short.  The  Bots try to scam a free coffin. Crow is the screaming skull, and Mike reacts hysterically. Tom's coffin arrives. Bobo is in an ape costume.

Rating: An OK episode. the film is forgettable , but the Gumby short is good, and Mike's reaction to Crow as the screaming skull is one of my all-time favorite bits.

Show 902: "The Phantom Planet",  first broadcast 3/21/1998

The Film: From 1961, a lost astronaut ends up on the planet of the little people. Typical cliche-ridden space adventure.

The Host Segments:  Mike, Crow and servo compete at Any Rooney impersonation.  Gypsy is fed up with all of them.  Pearl has purchased a Doomsday Machine, but par tof it was shipped to the SOL. Servo and Mike discuss the good and the beautiful. Mike is stuck outside the SOL. The Bots ignore him.  Pearl and Observer are spooked by Bobo.  Mike shows up Crow and Servo at  water glass music.  Crow is a Solarite. The failure of Pearl's Doomsday Machine has her down, but the arrival of a torch-bearing mob cheers her up.

Rating: Another OK episode.
