Dr. Forester: "I was splicing a DNA". really? I'm not a big science guy but I know you can't splice a singular strand of DNA. By definition you have to combine at least two. Unless they were trying to make a joke that was a goof on their part.

Watching this for the first time....have to say, Bart Fargo is one handsome son of a gun. I can totally see why every woman in this movie wanted to get into his pants.

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.

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.

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...

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.
