Favorite riff:
Lucille: "Yes darling, but come as soon as you can..."
Bart Fargo: "Sure"
Mike: THAT'S WHAT I USUALLY DO

This episode is solely responsible for me delving into the music of Herbie Hancock. That "Watermelon Man" gag gets funnier with each viewing - that, and the "bop-ba-da-dah" song.

So, unless I missed it, Mike and the Bots go the entire episode without once referring to the main character as "Fart Bargo." I can only aspire to one day possess that kind of restraint.

The message says this video is not available in your country. Are we under UN sanctions or something?

The opening skit is one of my all time favorites. I miss TVF and Dr.F. Anything with Torgo is guaranteed giggles. The only thing that could top it is "This is where the fish lives"

I just can't help feeling like this experiment was a kind of reward for making it through RED ZONE CUBA - and then we're punished for it by facing down THE BEAST OF YUCCA FLATS...

Anyone else reminded of Peter Jackson's "Bad Taste" during the scene with all the shooting outside the big white house?

I just don't get why you guys aren't digging this ep, but to each his own! I giggle my way through the entire episode. It's just happy fun time for me.

I'm surprised this was rated so highly. Other than the cheesy bathtub "special effect" and goofy music, this one wasn't all that great.

Like Stephen was saying 2 years ago, I'm surprised, and slightly confused by this ep's popularity--I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it--but it's on the list (a rather short list, mind you) of episodes that made almost NO impression on me--along with Code Name: Diamond Head, The Phantom Planet, The Hellcats, and a few others.

Am I missing something? I'm gonna watch this tonight and see if I can figure out why I don't remember this film better.

I like how everyone in these tough-guy movies knows how to brawl, but nobody knows how to fight. I need to watch Enter the Dragon after this, flush the crappy fight scenes out of my brain.

If I remember right, the bit where Servo uses his 'peaceful' death ray to zap Crow and he stumbles on with his head smouldering.. is in fact in one of those outtakes segments.. and when his head bursts into flames wasn't supposed to happen. Traces' scream cracks me up everytime. :)

Truly this must be one of the worst films ever made; thank God for Mike and the 'Bots for making it bearable. Can't decide if forcing people to watch this film would be a tamer or more severe form of torture than what intelligence agencies currently use; but leaning towards the latter...

John JK Harty - 12 months ago

What is the deal with the soundtrack? Somebody dub in an 'Elevator Greatest Hits' album by mistake? As infectious as it is; it doesn't suit the film in any way. You know how James Brown wrote the soundtrack for 'Black Caesar' without having seen the film yet knocked it out of the park? Well I think it's a similar situation here; only the complete opposite (as in didn't knock it out of the park).

For the big ending the villian sees Fargo through the little window so he uses the death ray to make a door for Fargo to come in and kill him. I was so numbed by this I had to watch James Bond facing off with Oddjob at the end of Goldfinger to revive.

Man, these poor bad guys. You send a lackey to kill the good guy and he fails, you send another lackey to kill that lackey and HE fails. And all these bedroom and cigarette scenes, and the soundtrack... it's like a shlocky porno but instead of sex there's incredibly dull chase scenes and toy boats.

This guy has all the sleaze of Secret Agent Super Dragon but not as much personal appeal. And he lacks the proper post-kill puns. But I'll give him that his theme music does rival that of Super Dragon.

Usually I don't see this episode listed in people's top episodes list, so I'm surprised to see it in 2nd place, just after Final Sacrifice.
