So Clu Gulager got his start in Westerns. He actually played Billy the Kid in The Tall Man. He's been acting since the late 50s. ...and he was in a movie as recently as 2012, although the level of quality appears to be much lower. It's called Piranha 3DD. The cover has a large image of a woman's cleavage with some piranhas in the background.

At about 30 minutes in, I thought "wait a second, that's two Grace Slick references so far. What's the deal? What's so funny about Jefferson... oh."

I showed this film to a post - 9/11 airport security employee and his head exploded.
I wish Beiber worked at an airport.

Ahhh yes, another embarrassingly bad 1970's TV movie. In the 70's we received about 5 channels so we watched crap like this out of lack of choice. I caught it all from '70 to '80. In the 80's at least we had VCR's and cable.

Oh the 70's. A kid steals a plane and flys around uncontrolled in heavy air traffic and everyone's like, "aw well kids will be kids!"

They took up less than 1/4th of my life, and yet I'm still filled with shame each and every time I slog through this dreck, as if its very existence were somehow all my fault. Just the Senate bit alone-- GAH! I swear, the big reveal in The Unearthly didn't showcase this many shambling, malformed he-freaks! o_0

Maybe I'm just missing something, but why was Pernell on the plane with the Senate committee in the first place? Shouldn't he have been on the ground at his job in the airport where their plane is arriving? Or did he fly out to Washington and catch a ride back just to berate them?

Well when one considers the last 6 films we saw, this one actually had a plot ..and a conflict, and a point ... albeit crap .. and brown!! .. but at least it had a story. Good episode.

I'm convinced the my-parents-are-divorcing-so-I'm-sad kid was in on the plan with Tab Hunter and Big Ears. He stole the plane at exactly the right time to divert attention away from the heist going on. They would've gotten away with it too if it wasn't for Clu Gulager's total apathy for the kid's situation.

I've seen this epissode probably 50 times now... and I STILL don't understand the Made-for-TV-Hippie vs. Bald Guy subplot! I know it's to give Clu something to do... but WHY? What was Bald Guy's motivation for making up the story about the hippie? How did he get the black eye - did the hippie even actually punch him? WAS DIET GUM EVEN STUFFED IN FACES??

I'm freaking out here!

I really wish the kid had died in the plane. How do you accidentally steal a plane, get on the runway, then take off because you're sad your parents are getting divorced?

All in all another made for television movie which wasn't too hard to swallow. The riffs were just icing on the cake. The whole Erkel skit should have been just one though as it got old fast, but I did enjoy Torgo showing up and ruining it. Also, love how Mike continuously uses the "Slug bug" routine throughout the series. Poor Crow. lol

That intro skit alone won my vote. Had me laughing all the way through. And ending with the board skit with Crow in Mike's arms with Servo talking all messed up and Mike tossing Crow at movie sign, Hilarious!

When Mike was holding Crow at the beginning, right before the movie started, I was watching his hands to see if he was operating the mouth. The best I can figure he had his right thumb up Crow's butt.
