This is the only episode I've ever seen in which Joel consumes something in the theater. He's got a canned beverage in this one! o__o

I just realized it again, while watching this episode... When they're in the theater, you can never *really* tell whether the Bots are looking at the screen..... or you. Especially Crow.

Third time watching this movie, I notice that the kid was picking up some rocket parts. Was he actually building a rocket, and if so, why wasn't this movie about him?

Who would have thought video game companies would take the "Johnny Long Torso" business model and apply it to their product? Horse armor? Why of course! Extra skins for guns? Why not? Content on the disc you physically bought but can't unlock until you pay more for a launch DLC? Sounds reasonable!


Crow, as Jimmy Durante

Crow does the "hum da dee dee, hua hua" during one of the host segments in "The Beast of Yucca Flats". He's waiting for it to be 11:30 so he can eat lunch.

The circus on ice. Its reminiscent of the Star Wars life day special. There is an ad ''Its like Grease on roller skates'' as a selling point . Not a warning. By the way if anyone has the Bobby Vinton Grease on roller skates special ill buy it now.

I replayed the tape that I recorded this episode on so many times that it got tangled up in my college VCR and broke it. I cried. Not because I broke the VCR, but because I lost this episode... ;-)

That pinging noise throughout the movie is physically painful. It's rare to find a bad movie that actually hates its audience instead of merely being cruelly indifferent.

OK, I need to get this off my chest. Towards the end of this turkey our heros are pitching a wingding over the fact that "Douglas's" radiation zone is becoming progressively larger and they need to find a way to track him down and disable him without exposing the searchers to the radiation risk. Well, heres an idea, why not use the RADIATION REPELLENT that you couldn't stop yaking about for the better part of this drool-fest!! Just don't overdose anyone and you won't end up with an NBA sized squad of infantrymen. Sorry, I'll stop now.

Love Tom's song during the Circus on Ice bit:
These two girls they make quite a pair
They both come from your worst nightmare
They will haunt your soul forever
And now when you see pink
You're gonna think
We're doomed

I need help with this one. The scene where the truck driver helped the woman, who gave him a kiss as "thanks" - what the hell did that have to do with this movie? Was that edited in as "filler" from some completely different, totally unrelated movie? I kept waiting for the monster to come.

I love the Johnny Longtorso bit. "The sleek and sexy butt portion!". Love it! I saw this episode when I was a kid, and during this sketch I remember thinking 'Of course there's only one of each arm and leg in stock. I imagined going to Toys R Us and being disappointed when I failed for the umpteenth time to find a left leg or the 'Action Batch". Talk about evil!

Herschell "The Godfather of Gore" Gordon Lewis directed the second half of this movie. I think a good eye gouging or heart ripping might have actually improved this piece of fecal matter.

So from what I've read, Rebane finished this film in 1961, but couldn't afford to release it, so Herschel Gordon Lewis bought it. Lewis decided to add some new scenes, but it was 4 years later, and he couldn't get all the origiinal actors. So basically we end up with 2 bad movies spliced together to form one horrible movie.
