Not only should you not be allowed a gun on a ship but since when can you fire a gun in space?

You know, they have this obligatory joke about the stuff they serve at the bar being rocket fuel. You know what the Space Shuttle used for fuel? Liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen. Mix them together and light it, and you get... Water.

Also, if firing a gun pretty much anywhere on the Moon or any ship to or from the Moon is liable to cause a lethal hull breach (and I'll definitely believe it is) why would anyone be allowed to have one? Especially someone too stupid and uninformed to know that?

Moon Bar, Moon dollars, Moonopoly. I'm kind of surprised they didn't call it the Moonorail.

So the problem with asteroid mining is that it's more expensive to set up a long-distance operation than you'd make in gross income. Except that he's found a giant chunk of sapphire, which you'd think would be profitable, even one shipload at a time. But his solution is to crash it into the Moon, which would likely shatter it. (And which is also dangerous and illegal.) Why not put it in orbit?


Film is too watchable.

Being a lover of all terrible films, you can tell this one was picked because it was in color, but it also has some semblance of a plot. Although it was surely better than "Gone With The Wind" the film is watchable, and it takes away a little from the show I think. However, it isn't Stinkburger status, like The Purge.
There certainly are elements of the film that are dated and, admittedly funny, however for MST3k Purists like myself, this movie was a good pick for mainstream audiences, but not true blue MSTies, who bath in the sun of the film that was The Screaming Skull.

Ah I do love watching this film .. it's so oddball and yet fun to watch. One of the best of season 1. I liked the main theme so much that i bought it from the iTunes store ... yup .. you can actually buy it :P

That small riff at the very beginning with the opening credits. "Hey. It's Donald Trump. He's chasing the good guys away. That doesn't make sense."

"It makes perfect sense!"

Kinda funny how revelent that just became.

I can't believe the riffers let a few choice opportunities slip by. When the lady sheriff says "looks like he's carrying quite a load"...nothing! Maybe they had to consider much of their audience was kids, but I was riffing the hell outta that one in my head.

This POS came out a year after 2001: ASO! Did they actually think audiences would accept this swill after a landmark Sci-Fi film like that?

I liked it. I'd watch it unriffed. If I was going to complain I'd say Hubbard was a bit too cartoonish, and when the miners started piling in I started to worry that Benny Hill would be among them .... maybe it just got a little too manic at times. But that's the 70s for you.

Maybe that's why the protagonist keeps being accused of being boring: the contrast between his personality and what's going on around him. Catch him in his natural habitat and he'd be a pretty okay bloke to have around.

I'm not even going to grumble about the artificial gravity, but that's because I can top it with their utter reliance on satellites for communication; there are such things as "cables", and even the crew in Project Moonbase could give them some suggestions.

But it's still a fun film.

At around 0:43:10, the old guy wearing the Buffalo Bob attire, is he also the neighborhood pub owner in The Deadly Bees? I just like to spot actors that play in more than one Mystie movie.

I was really paying attention to the cartoon going on behind the opening credits this time and it was actually very clever. Some nice little jabs at the Cold War, even. I was genuinely impressed.

But then, I like this movie, anyway. :D

Is there anywhere I can find season one episodes that have half decent audio? On all of the episodes, I can hear about every fifth riff that Josh Weinstein says as Servo. Unfortunately, I can hear everything he says as Dr. Erhardt.

I really like this episode. One of the most watchable movies they ever mocked. The groovilicious first half is way better than the shoot 'em up snore fest of the last half, though.

Anyway, the home team always bring their A game to the 70s stuff. Gee, it's almost as though they were kids around that time, and they're all nostalgey and stuff...

About that hero. I liked him in The Andromeda Strain, and he's okay here but he just isn't Gary Cooper material.

Joel's go-go dancing is the highlight. If only he had got up and danced whenever that horrible music played, it might have made it more tolerable... file it under "soundtrack for your worst nightmares." Unfreakinbearable! Curse those Mads!! They nearly got me with this one. *whew*

OK, is it just me or is Moon Zero Two not such a bad movie? I actually got sucked into the story. I can't decide whether or not to feel ashamed.
