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.)

Ever thought you'd seen 'em all, then, one night, you discover an experiment that you somehow missed? This is one of those - Teenage4 Crime Wave, you were a delightful surprise!

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.

I love how they establish within the first few minutes that Jane is an absolute moron.

I didn't like the little guy with the gun. Someone should feed him, and shoot him up into space.

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!

We here at prison think Mike has potential… and a pertty mouth.

What was that obelisk think they passed while they were driving? I went to California once when I was a kid and I got the worst déjà vu when I saw it.

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.

They think they're going to take the country by storm like Bonnie and Clyde after being caught after screwing a single mugging and screwing up a jailbreak?

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.

what the -? Dr. Forrester zaps Frank with crazy foam and suddenly I'm in a subtitled neorealist Truffaut film? (perhaps the Mads hacked their own broadcast and this is our experiment ...)

Is there a reason I can't find a full version of the episode that isn't missing the opening skits and the ending credits?

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 Tribute to Doughy Guys might be Mike Nelson's all-time best! I was taking a drink when Crow said, "Doughy guys, we take our belts off to you!" It was an episode of "Spit-take Theater"

I just love the dark-haired girl's parents. What a couple of selfish douchebags. I'm surprised she didn't take up a life of crime earlier.

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!
