So the kid is a med student and he doesn't think to take a pulse or try to resuscitate his landlady when he finds her? He just assumes she dead, even though she's clearly still breathing when he enters the room.

The impromptu "Murder's The Word" song in the diner had me in stitches.

Is this the first appearance of the lights for movie/commercial sign?

At 53:00, Crow tries to bite the guy's hand! Excellent! There's no riff, just that little motion.

I'm no expert, but would a person EVER be allowed to stay at a crime scene, even after the body was removed? I just can't imagine that he would have been left there.

How can you tell this is a bad movie? When there are dogs barking in the background soundtrack.

Five or six hour? Back then running prints through a national archive try five or six months.

“What’s wrong with that man?!” He wears too much eye shadow I’ll tell you that.

Ya gotta love it! The "lune-are" surface, not the "lune-ur" surface.

@10:08 - Is that a parakeet taped to the top of his head? It's like he had his hair frosted by the Lighthouse for the Blind!

I miss how much Joel would interact physically with the film. it virtually disappeared after season 3 and to me it seemed such an important use of the format.

@7:19 What is Joel doing? At first I thought he was waving away smoke, but is he wiping away dandruff?

36:40 Seems like rough treatment for a gun with a hair trigger.

Anybody else wonder about those junk yard cats eating the hand? Was that a way of introducing a sequel? And they showed the cat in Mrs Hodgekiss' larder sniffing the glove. Don't think there ever was The Crawling Paw though. But seriously, about the ending...was the moment the hand died and Paul's swoon connected? That was the moment he was freed from the hands influence, right?

Another gem from S1 that I nearly forgot about. :o Who could say no to the Mr. Fantastic invention, Alan Hale, Jr., the world's stupidest delivery guys, AND heroic junkyard cats? Certainly not me.

Also, at 00:12:05, Joel quotes a Tin Pan Alley song that, per Wikipedia, had lyrics by one Red... Hodgson. o_0 You don't think...?

Nah.

Anyone else unable to view this one on site? I have to go to the host page. Not even so much as a viewscreen over here. Nice clean copy, indeed; but I come here specifically to share my MST viewing experience.

When Paul turns Zombie, doesn't he look like Ray Liota near the end of Goodfellas? When he's coked out of his mind? "Karen, you didn't flush it! KAREN! Why would you do that?!"

This is the first time of many that Joel eats something when he hits the button for commercial sign. Anyone got an idea what he's eating? It looks like a grape to me.

I had this episode and then DVD cracked. The sad part is I didn't have the heart to throw it away so now I have a cracked The Crawling Hand DVD and every time I look at the case I get so depressed. I really liked this episode. Although it had no T.V.'s Frank and, I love T.V.'s Frank.

The speech about how women are attracted to weak men is one of the more bizarre things I've heard in a while. Who are these women, and where can I find them?
