"Any unusual experiment can produce unusual results." Hmm, as bad as the movie was, this part of the episode's stinger sounds like exactly what happened with Hodgson's awesome (albeit unusual) show.

It also sounds like Dr. F's life motto to a tee. haha

Hahah! Joel is so flabbergasted by some of the lines in this movie. XD And rightly so, this dialogue is borderline insane-in-the-membrane.

Man, if ever a character needed closed captions, it's the scientist dude. Of course, from his inability to enunciate lines, we get a wealth of jokes, so that's fine.

So...did anyone ever try to make the Killer Shrew drink? Was it as awful as I think it would be? :)

What I love about this movie is how hard it had to work to suck. The idea of shrews the size of dogs is actually *terrifying.* What are obviously regular dogs in incredibly bad shrew costumes, not so much.

Aw, Crow's reaction to his present breaks my heart a little bit. He's trying so hard to be mature, for once. Also, Joel says that Crow's birthday is coming up. When is his birthday? How did Joel decide when the 'bots' birthdays are? Is it the day he made them? Did he just arbitrarily assign dates? I need to know these things! Aaaa! *deep breath* Just a show... *deep breath* Just relax... *deep breath*

Hahaha at 40:20 the almost Taming of the Shrew reference. I have to admit, when I first saw the title of this episode I thought, "My ex?"

Wait, now they're going sailing? Whiskey tango foxtrot is going on? This movie is almost as bad as Peter Jackson's Hobbit fiasco.

This isn't really a serious question, but I'm very curious all the same: why is it that people look so much older in old black and white films? In the rodeo short, the 6 year olds look like they're 10, the junior high kids look like high school kids, and the ones that are in high school look like they're in their mid 20's. I just don't get it...

I really liked this episode more this time around, from Servo's goggles slapped on top of his head when he goes into watch the short right down to Frank's spit-take. Every time I watch this I hear 'new' riffs; gave it a laugh.

You know...when the shrews are all gathered around the fence, why didn't they just kill as many as they could? They have guns!

In the opening skit, I think it's kinda funny how TV Frank keeps reminding of all the indignities Dr. F. had to suffer through school and then remembers more!

If smoking causes cancer so often, shouldn't everyone who lived through the forties, fifties, and sixties have all dropped like flies by now?

“In 24 hours there will be one shrew left on the island.” Not according to a 53 year late sequel.

James Best seems less heroic when you think of him as ineffectual sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane. Even less so when you think of him as Billy Joe Macallistar's homosexual rapist.

If they had added the waxed lips and an olive to the Killer Shrew they would have come real close to an Earth version of a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster.

Did you know a sequel was made in 2012 starring James Best as well as John Schneider and Rick Hurst, all from The Dukes of Hazzard? I thought the original killer shrews were bad but YOU GOT TO SEE THESE (start at 1:36): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-YLkHGK6wg

That was like "Key Largo", except for shrews instead of Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Lionel Barrymore, Edward G Robinson, good acting, and good writing.
LOL
Seriously, The doctor said "We are self-sufficient here." if the island was self sufficient, why did the captain have a whole boat full of new supplies for them?

I hate to admit it, you don't expect a movie called Killer Shrews to have a modicum of suspense, but it kinda did.......... :( Not much, but some.
Also, I like the Captain, he was in a few Twilight Zone episodes.

I love Crow's reaction to the gift of pants. In Joel's defense, it always seems like Crow wants to be treated more like a grown-up, and he is the only bot with legs...
