They make comments about how the opening credits say that it was filmed in Switzerland. Today, while I was watching, I noticed that it said all the locations were in Florida. So I did a search and, sure enough, there's a place in Florida called Switzerland. Go figure.

i often feel like skipping this episode when i do my usual run-through of Mike's term...GOD this one sucks so much it turns into a black hole that has a "bitter pill" of a planet caught in perpetual geosynchronous orbit, cause it's actually housing the actual DEVIL, and it takes the Doctor to save us all to fly away while being towed by the Tardis....(*inhales*)...

32:04: "aaaaand...GO!". That's the second time that happened! Another movie has the swamp-thing coming out of the water after his victim, and the editor botched the cut. In that one, the riff was "aaaaand...ACTION". What is it with editors and swamp monsters?

No one mentioned Brain Guy's makeup was removed when Pearl threw the medicine ball at his face. They must have decided that the effect looked so perfect they didn't bother to fix his makeup. Brilliant!

The first time the doctor injects himself with that huge needle, the riff is backwards talking. I didn't get that for years, until I saw a making-of for Pulp Fiction. Turns out most "injection" scenes are shot backwards, with a spring loaded needle. Shown in reverse, it looks like the actor is stabbed with the needle. Great obscure riff!

1:15:25 Possibly my favorite MST3K quote of all, since it can be applied not only to all the movies they riffed, but people in real life. "I guess I could be stupider, but it'd be hard."

This movie is one of my unexpected favorites. I watched it not expecting much and by the time it was over, I thought it was one of the best of season 10. The movie is SO incompetently made, but the riffs are SO good and, except for the chewing tobacco thing, all the host segments are perfect (especially SHOE-POLISHING HUMAN! SOON YOU WILL PAY!). This is my sleeper episode. :)

This is the only one I haven't gotten through. I tried a couple of times, but only managed to get ten or fifteen minutes into it before I got distracted and forgot. Then I finally sat down and decided to watch the whole thing, but the sheriff calling the biologist "boy" just completely turned me off.

Here's a question for everyone: vis a vis that knob that protrudes from Crow's beak in the first scene, do you see that as a bulging cheek full of tobacco, or a horrible tobacco-based tumor? Or something else?

Man, this is one of the episodes I have to force myself to get through. All the close-ups of underwater life... Even the brief shot of a turtle somehow grosses me out, and I've had a pet turtle. Is it the people of Florida that's made the water so icky, or is it the water that's made the people of Florida so repellant? Damn swamp-hillbillies and their ZaAt!

...the takes they make between the cooler of Pearl's love stuff disappearing, or appearing are impressively seamless...more-so than any other series I have ever seen employing the same cinematic effect...I wonder how they managed that...always loved everybody involved with this show, but that's pretty hard to do, and they did it several times...
