Love the host segments here, too. Reel vs Real. The classic movie theater snacks bit. The fashion shoot. So much to love, and paired with some great riffing on a truly deserving movie.

What's that? You're a total stranger with no references, no possessions, no income, and you won't even tell us a single thing about you beyond your first name? No problem! Come live in my house for free, take my son's clothes, borrow the car, and go drive off with my teenage daughter. I'm sure it'll be fine. Oh? You don't know how to drive? No license? Never been in a car before? Well, Betty can teach you the basics. I'm sure you'll figure it out. Say, wait a sec. You're not a Russian spy or anything, are you? Nah, just kidding. Forget I asked. Go on, have fun!

"What's wrong?" "I do not know. It suddenly fell limp, and now will not move..."
They have a pill for that now. Unfortunately, it didn't exist when this episode was filmed.

This was the very first episode I ever watched! Caught it on Comedy Central at midnight when I was in the 7th grade and my life was never the same! "TORTURE!!!"


Just like we all thought!

Im pretty sure I first saw this movie as a special feature for the ps2 game destroy all humans. After you beat the game you unlock the B movie theater where you can watch this movie in its entirety and some other things like clips from plan 9.

On the other hand, the Outer Spacians are living on lobster and lots of it. Kind of a shrewd move, feeding the masses enormous masses of sweet Gorgon meat and drawn butter.

I love this episode so much! Plenty of Monty Python references too!
And the movie really isn't half-bad, I actually have it unriffed and would gladly watch it! But definitely silly enough to riff!

Ok.... I had to do a little modification on this note. At the beginning, the wacko alien says that the gorgon will grow to millions of percents of it's original size in the span of a day. Looks like it is about a foot long (body without claws). Later the protagonist says it will grow to the size of the City Hall. If it is a foot long at dawn and will grow. say, 2,000,000%, at the end of the day it will be 378.7878787878788 miles long, which is more than slightly larger than the City Hall.

I have to say that this movie was surprisingly good. For what looks like a really low-budget movie, it still manages to engage me more than films like "Mitchell" or any of the Transformers movies. It was surprisingly good!

Excellent riffs all around! Love Dr. Forester "choking Annie" date, reminded me of my days back in medical school. Hooya great show!

...Is a hilarious Bergman parody that they used to screen at my college's version of the Turkey Day Marathon. Tom mentions it at about 1:03:35. Click on it here. Includes the comedic glory that was Madeline Kahn. Trust me, you won't be sorry.

Jeez... these townspeople. I bet their combined brain power couldn't produce a slice of buttered toast in less than two hours' time. Makes it hard to get invested in the Earth's fate all that much. :/

I stumbled across this looking into this film. The writer/director, Tom Graeff, and the actor who plays Derek were romantic partners. Graeff also played Joe in this film. Graeff had a tragic life after this, and "Derek" disappeared a year after this film was made, never to be found again, even by his family.
More on this at www.tomgraeff.org

You got to love all those grandpa-dog jokes. That seems to me like a pretty good summation of his character actually: a big, stupid, friendly dog.

In the olfactory bit in the beginning Joel and the bots refer to that pink stuff that would cover puke at school. Do they still use that stuff or have come up with something better? I never threw up at school. Never heard about anyone doing it either. Though, many times I found the custodian cleaning up a batch in the hallway. Maybe it was the custodian's puke.

The biggest disappointment of this experiment for me was the failure of anyone to recognize the "TORTURE!" guy as King Moody, who was Siegfried's assistant Shtarker on Get Smart, as well as the first Ronald McDonald in the 70's. I was looking forward to a slew of "Zis is KAOS, ve don't thppttt here!!" jokes, but alas, it was not to be.
