I am very confused by that fan letter. The girl writes to the MST3K crew, and asks them for... an address she can write to?

So, the fog... how do you think they did that? Superimposed in post? A small fog machine close to the camera? Or do they actually make industrial fog machines that good, even for outdoor use?

"That thing they're hanging onto must be the plotline." No, Crow, I don't think it's that substantial.

The bad guys run up the steep mountainside, trying to escape. Gee, if only Cody had some way to make that climb faster so he could head them off...

I love how the dial on Cody's chest somehow tells the rocket pack to go up or down.

Joel: "I don't think that cotton candy thing was legit."
Servo (in Larry's voice): "I don't know. Looked pretty real..."

Way to defend yourself, Josh! But, you know, Joel, that cotton candy thing (like all the inventions) was your creation...

Can't believe that with all the "Commando Cody" episodes shown, there is not one mention of Clayton Moore who played one of the thugs. Moore was t.v.'s "Lone Ranger" during the 50's. Hard to identify by sight but the voice is unmistakable. A possible riff: "Oh, sorry Mr. Moore, I didn't recognize you without your mask". Heehee.

The fog is so thick i can't see anything the actors are doing. I don't know if that is a bad thing or not...

On a break from having a life I went on IMDB and determined that (based on the ages of the actors playing them) Tom Gregory would be 43 and his wildly improbable love interest Lisa would be 22. Honestly, would it have been that much ickier if one of the slime people had locked lips with her in the kitchen? (In the interests of full disclosure, I myself am a 42-year-old man, though I self-identify as a Cybernetic Remotely-Operated Woman.)

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).

Lol, oh Joel, you know you love 'em. :P Also, Servo, I think that's a brilliant idea for a show! ;)

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. :)

"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?

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".
