Idiocy, Thy Name Is Tom Gregory
1 laugh

So Tom Gregory flies into LA, sees it wrecked, people dead, etc. Bonnie tells him the tale of the Slime People and how the Army fought them and lost. Then he mentions that he's a newscaster ("sports, mostly"). How could he not have heard about this story?? The ARMY fought monsters. The entire city of Los Angeles was EVACUATED. Yet it's all news to this asshat "newscaster."

"Excuse me, Mr. Melman. Mr. Letterman's looking for you."

A Line referring to the late, great Larry "Bud" Melman (Calvert DeForest), from David Letterman's Late Show when he was still with NBC (they wouldn't let him use that name when he moved to CBS).

His younger daughter is 14, his older daughter is 30, and they both still live at home.

"You know, you give life to two inanimate objects and they turn around and mock your entire species. You know, if I ever get trapped in space again, I think I'm just going to bring books."
Lol, oh Joel, you know you love 'em. :P Also, Servo, I think that's a brilliant idea for a show! ;)

I think we could've used just a little more fog and it would've been perfect

I like the reference toward the end to the great WKRP Turkey episode. 1:32:09 the shot of the plane flying over with parachute men tumbling out. "They're dropping turkeys."

Tolliver and the auctioneer from North by Northwest are played by Les Tremayne, an old time radio veteran. The other guy at the lectern in NBNW is Olan Soule' who played "Brains" in Jet Jackson as well as many OTR roles.

Wow. The guy who plays Tolliver (the crazy guy who gets killed) had a really long career, mostly in voice work and narration, but he was in the 1953 War of the Worlds and North by Northwest. I wonder how they got him to be in this movie. :)

Oh, the army went straight to hand-to-hand combat. No wonder they lost. Should have used guns.

"Come on Marine." - DON'T call me Marine, gee!
Joel's response assumes a Marine would be insulted by being called a Marine - not so; Marines are very proud of that title. (Now if he had said, 'Come on Soldier.', that would be another story).

Is that not Servo adding to the squishy mud sounds starting at 1:24:57? He carries on with it in between riffs for quite a while. At 1:27 he gets so loud Crow asks Joel, "Is that your stomach?"

*GASP!* And all these years, I credited screenwriter Richard Hilliard (Horror of Party Beach) with that brilliant 'sodium' angle. Turns out he was plagiarizing the plot of Slime People all along! Is nothing sacred?

Wouldn't it have been ironic if after the fog lifted, the military bombed the area just to make sure the "slimers" were dead?

There you have it; citizens freely using sodium were able to not only combat the Slime People, but also destroy the monsters from the Horror of Party Beach. So up yours Mayor Bloomberg!

They spend the whole movie trying to find a way to get through the fog wall. If the pilot flew in through the fog dome, why doesn't he pile everyone in his plane and fly back out?

The professor says the fog is turning back into vapor. Isn't that pretty much what fog is?

Dr. F.: "Come in, Joel, my little 3.98-all-you-can-eat space buffet."

Dr. Erhardt: "Pasty boy!"

I'd totally patronize a Space Buffet featuring a "pasty boy" special. I mean, who wouldn't?

Listen to Lisa, especially at 1:11:01. Close your eyes and picture Rocket J. Squirrel. "Here he is, Mr. Know-it-all!"

I'm thinking I prefer the newer Servo to the older one. They were both good though, but New Servo had more energy.

I love the old sci-fi flicks, claiming they intentionally left it all to the imagination... only because they had no special effects. These producers were the Tom Sawyers of their day!

This movie would be better if there wasn't so much reliance on fog.
I mean seriously... they should've called this movie "Fog and the Slime People".
