An Ed Wood movie brings with it so many things. Much like Coleman Francis he has a stable of bad actor friends he keeps reusing. Also Ed seems to be trying to make a point about society. It's like his anti porn message he wove through A SINISTER URGE!

I can't decide if it would be worse to be sprayed with Satan's Jockstrap or Essence of Detroit.

I feel that this is a truly underrated episode. The movies about juvenile delinquency seem to be really funny, but at the same time, almost passable as interesting by there own. You know what, scratch that. If a movie is on this show, its awful. But this really is a great episode. I also like "The Violent Years"

I love this episode - the riffs are hilarious, and the movie is actually pretty interesting to watch - but I can't stand watching Frank get maced over and over. I just don't think a person constantly screaming in pain is that funny. It's different if it's a cartoon gun and a cartoon duck, but live-action agony just makes me really uncomfortable. Shameful confession: I have the same problem with Jack Perkins in the Fugitive Alien host segments. Maybe I'm just a weenie.

We're not really supposed to like any of these protagonists, are we? Because they're doing a pretty good job of being utterly detestable.

I'm not sure what it is exactly, but there's something about Terry's voice that always reminds me of Almira Gulch's voice from "The Wizard of Oz" (that would be the mean woman at the beginning played by Margaret Hamilton who sticks Toto in a picnic basket). (Terry is considerably hotter than Mrs. Gulch, of course, but her voice still always reminds me of that.)

Can someone please let me know if I'm hallucinating? During the Mystos bit, towards the end, Gypsy opens her mouth while looking straight on into the camera and I swear there's a face inside her mouth. Is that some weird filming artifact or is it supposed to be in there? Is it Richard Basehart? Whatever it is, I'm creeped out.

I can't stop visualizing the ways I would disarm and take down the two kids with guns. It's actually starting to get pretty distracting. : \ Damn all those martial arts clubs in college....

I like this movie. I love this episode, but I actually like this movie. It's exploitation-y, has a decent story and fleshed-out characters, and has decent acting.
Don't judge me. I also like The Beatniks, for the same reasons.

I think that this is one of the most under-rated MST3K episodes. This might be one of my favorites, along with The Final Sacrifice.

One of my favorite parts about this episode is that the line "He'd never touch you Terri you're dirt!" is used in several other episodes and cracks me up!

I've seen this episode several times, and I still have absolutely no idea why they brought the innocent girl along for their robbery. She adds absolutely nothing aside from being a date for the other guy and they have no reason to believe she wouldn't immediately tell the cops.

Were we supposed to feel sympathy for the 'innocent' girl? she may not have intentionally committed any crimes but she was a terrible bystander. Three people died and another three were seriously injured cause she wouldn't do anything more than be a damsel in distress. The blonde girl exonerating her at the end was only uplifting insofar as *she* was somewhat redeemed for being honest.

Every time I watch this movie, I still can't figure out why it is that the innocent girl (whatever her name is) doesn't tell the full story of what happened to the police, to her parents, or whoever else asks her. It's not like she was fond of the people she was with. She didn't like the date. She didn't like Mike. She didn't seem to like Terry, either. I just don't get it! We would have been spared the entire movie if she had just opened her mouth.

So, the greasy punk who had it coming gets to live but the hot little bad girl with daddy issues who may just need the guidance of a firm older man who could take her in as his ward, nothing wrong with that, the neighbors may talk a bit and there would be grief with the family….the hell with them we’ll just move, a nice beach condo in a tourist area where everyone minds their own business and don’t ask a lot of questions of the locals…um…er…oh…what I mean was… so the punk Mike lives, but sweet misunderstood Terry dies, shame on you Fred F. Sears!

The ending bit (the one with Dr. F and Frank, not the French-language movie) is one of those gags that goes on for too long... and then keeps going until it's funny again. I agree with LHO there-- it's a classic!
