Ahh, the unforgettable Torgo! One of my favorite characters - also popular with the MST3k crew too as he visitted them svevral times (delivers izza to the Mads, auditions with Dr. F to replace TV's Frank, etc.)
I thought his bulgy knees were some sad, unidentified deformity. Lo and behold, Wiki says Torgo was supposedto be a kind of "faun" character standing on goat-like legs. Turns out the actor was wearing the metal 'goat legs' frame BACKWARDS!!!
I always laugh at Torgo's antics - now I have more reasons than ever to giggle and guffaw!

I'd like to hook up Torgo with my sister-in-law. They share that same stunned sense of wonderment at ordinary human interaction. And, oddly enough, she was born with her arms on backwards (but you ought to see her set up kill shots in volleyball with her elbows -- extroidinary). Their first embrace would be worth the film, I tell you what

I believe both quotes are from the book/movie starship troopers. The first quote is definitely a reference to that. Not sure about the second

The doberman they got to stand with the master when the husband was shooting at him looked rather too sweet to be a hell hound, or an...undead doggy, or...whatever he was suppose to be. Of course the master's mustachio disqualifies him from mastery of any variety, instead relegating him to a life/unlife of sub-mediocre used car sales...

My first MST ep. It's never been my favorite, but it has a special place in my heart. My favorite bit has to be Kevin's left-field monologue at the end. "Did I tell you about my 20 year plan?" There are moments when this show drifts into the sublime.

Also: Dr F and Frank should have apologized to the audience for "Castle of Fu Manchu." I still haven't recovered from that one. Manos at least has the amateur excuse. Manos is yrain-wreck watchable, at least.

It honestly surprised me how they lumped The Far Side in with total dreck like The Lockhorns. The Far Side consistently managed to balance funny and interesting, and at its worst, it was at least somewhat entertaining and creative. All of the other comics that were lampooned in this invention exchange are uniformly terrible, though.

You can make the argument that 'Monster A-Go-Go' or 'The Beast of Yucca Flats' were worse films, but I say this is the all-time best MST3K episode. This movie had the perfect storm of semi-continuity, awful editing, and thoroughly despicable characters to make for perfect fodder for Joel and the Bots

You know...there are certain flaws in this film, but more than the obvious flaws, I noticed something this time through. They're looking for Valley Lodge, right? They turn off and get to this random house. They're lost. They ask for directions and are given nothing. Instead of turning around and heading back to the highway (as the wife suggested, very logically, I might add), the husband invites himself and his family to stay the night at a stranger's house who has said they're not welcome.

What?? Who in the world would do something like that?

Although it is not clear in the film Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966), the character, Torgo, is supposed to be a satyr, half man, half goat, which is why his knees appear to be misshapen.

When I scroll through the episode list, I like to look at which episode has the most viewers at the moment. I can understand why Manos is popular in a general sense, but I've noticed that it always gets a lot of viewers (at least 4 and sometimes as many as 15 from what I've seen) Sunday evenings. The rest of the time it has (Moon) 0-2 viewers, like most episodes; but every Sunday, the sun goes down and *boom*, party at Torgo's place, like clockwork.

Torgo is supposed to be a satyr, hence the metal frame under the actor's pants to attempt to show legs that bend backward like a faun. Apparently the contraption was extremely painful to John Reynolds. He killed himself in 1966, although no connection to Manos was given in his death. Sad, really.

Hal Warren (the dad in the movie) made this film on a bet. He bet Stirling Siliphant that he could make a successful horror film on a small budget.

This movie is a circus; all that's missing is a bear on a unicycle.

It is a great episode, but if this is your first time watching the show, try a different episode first. The movie really is that bad.

How has nobody else commented on this episode! Might well be the best MST3k ep of all time. Mister you keep those hands of fate at 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock.
