(Reverend's head grows larger and larger as he approaches the camera) ... Tom Servo : "I'm bigger than Jesus!"

All this and an obscure John Lennon reference too? Can this episode possibly get any more awesome? (and I haven't even petted the llama yet)

So I'm taking a tour of the eps I've never managed to finish. I've seen the ghoulish delight of a short many times, and all the skits. (Frank's anguished "Squanto! brings back fond memories.)

But the movie. I doubt I'll watch it again, but I'm glad I finished it.

I find it funny that in the last 30 seconds the movie decides it wants us to take it seriously. What would I do? Turn off this profoundly dumb, boring movie, which I did half an hour ago. (Well, previously, I did. This trip, I obviously made it to the end. Still...

You know, another movie on my unfinished list is The Unearthly, which also involves an escaped convict held by an evil conniver. I guess that plot line just doesn't work for me.

If you build your career on blackmail
And breaking old crooks out of jail,
Beware of the cost
And the old double-cross,
Or your plans might explosively fail.

Wow, what was the point of that short? Why remind us that none of it matters? The work we do, the things we say, write, build, it doesn't matter. We spend our lives fighting each other; working for someone else's agenda; being treated as a commodity, only useful as far as you can make someone else money; kept under control through debt, fear, and if all else fails, through force; and none of it matters. We are just a growth on a rock in space, probably one of many. We are given such a wonderful, brief time of life. A short flash of light in eternal darkness, and what do we do with it? What have we ALWAYS done with it? We SQUANDER IT!!! We fritter it away in vain pursuits of material wealth, we hurt others in many ways to get what WE want. We succumb to fear and let others rule us. We have the mental capacity to recognize these faults in ourselves and fix them, but do we? Sure many people do, but largely, no we don't. We are worse than any virus or insect that mindlessly lays waste to it's environment. No. We do what we do knowingly, and that is a whole new breed of evil. The worst part for me personally? I'm just as f***ing guilty as everyone else is, and it hurts me more deeply than I know how to express.

"You people bring matches for Mikey?" One of my favorite lines from any of the host segments. The way Mike just stares straight-faced at the camera before the delivery, and Tom's reaction to the line, that's icing on the cake. This episode deserves more laughs than 54 just for that skit alone.

That "partners" bit from the mads opening is gonna haunt me. Dr F delivers it with such a meaningful weight but I can't decipher what the actual meaning was! I know that's kinda the point but nevertheless...

Edgar G. Ulmar directed this? No wonder this is one of the MST3K movies I actually sort of like. He did a lot of fairly good (albeit weird) film noir movies in the late 40s, such as "Detour."

Not only does this have the "Touch the Llama" sketch (my favorite beside the "Screaming Skull Prank"), but it has more guinea pig jokes than you can find in any 10 ordinary comedy offerings! Top notch in my book!

What a depressing short this go around. Basically the message I took from that is to not let your local priest get at all familiar with you. If you do, bad things will occur.

By golly that intro skit was the best part of this episode. "Y'all don't give matches to Mikey! Bad Mikey! No matches!" And then Crow as the Llama freaking out as Mike pets him feverishly. Great stuff!

Mike's hard, unblinking and beoveralled stare. I don't swoon often, but when I do it's in response to something creepy and beautiful like the pig-blood drinking ice cold psycopath that is shirtless Mike Nelson.

Crow's gibberish riff at 1:21:52 makes me laugh every time. The short in this episode is great, but the rest of the episode is otherwise kind of forgettable--save for this awesome Crow moment, which is one of my favorite in the entire series.

Mike maintains that incredibly unsettling "thosand-yard stare" throughout the opening skit. It must have been quite a challenge given that everyone else on set was assuredly laughing like maniacs.

Makes you wonder how many takes this bit required.
