They seem to have paired up the most riffable short and best host sections of the season with the most boring cop-out movie, to balance things out.
The only way I can remember this episode, is to remind myself that this was the movie that never happened...

This ep wasn't funny enough to make up for the movie. Monster a go go is possibly the worst movie ever. Worse than manos, worse than anything Ed wood, worse than anything I've ever seen. Sad cuz technically it's a Herschel gordon Lewis movie and the title sounds cool.

For all the brilliant riffing in this episode, my favorite line may just be the suave way Tom says "Jacqueline" when the French figure skater comes out.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.
