I always come back to the Trace-and-Mike episodes when I need to be cheered up. Something about these two is just magical.
Not to say there aren't excellent, amazing episodes before or after their respective intervals...there are most definitely.
Just something about that combo.

Credit where it's due, the stop motion for the aliens is actually pretty good. Shame the aliens are barely a plot device beyond Dues Ex Explosions.

So, I have two questions about this movie.

1. Is Billy being controlled by the gun/Mr. T necklace or is he doing this psychotic stuff because he now has the ability?

2. What in the world was the doorbell in his chest that Roddy McDowall removed? How did it get there and since he removed it, what was its purpose?

Can you imagine if it turned out the SoL had a crew of 148, all devoted to just forcing Mike & the Bots watch movies?

I swear, I would watch an entire movie that was just the aliens. No subtitles for their burbling or anything, just inscrutable, incomprehensible turtle-faced aliens.

I think this movie would actually work a lot better as a TV show. Picture this: in every episode, some new idiot finds the laser arm thing, and then at the end of the episode the aliens show up and kill them.

When Billy is walking around the house, looking for Kathy, there was a perfect callback opportunity. ...at least, I thought so.

Billy picks up an apple.

"Want some?"

Get it? Get it? Huh? Do ya get it?

at 46:15, the boom mike is visible when the two dumb cops are called into the sheriff's office. The irony is there is no sound in that scene to pick up anyway. But at least the boom mike was there just in CASE there was some dialog...

One of the funniest scenes in the movie is not a riff, but when the fight between Billy and the two losers after the pool party. The scene starts at 41:00. Just concentrate on Eddie Deezen's character. Hilarious.

So why do the aliens take the long journey to earth to stop humans from using the laserblaster and repeatedly forget to pick the laserblaster up and take it with them? The movie's plot revolves around this unanswered question. Anyone care to speculate?

I find it funny when he blew up the Star Wars sign because it was around the time that MST3K did this episode that Lucas was doing just that to the original movies. Can you say foreshadowing? Funny and yet creepy all at the same time.

From IMDB:

In the 1980s a sequel to this film, tentatively titled "Laserblast 2" was announced by Charles Band Productions. Through the years, the film was variously described as in development and/or partially or fully completed. In the early nineties, an ad appeared in Variety magazine offering full sale of the rights to the film, but it is unclear if they were purchased. The film, if indeed completed, has never been seen.

Oh man! If ever there was a reason for a Kickstarter campaign.

The theme music for this movie (which is the same music used in "Robot Holocaust") will always sound epic and sad to me, because I remember taping this episode when it first premiered when I was 10 and feeling empty because this could very well have been the last episode. Thankfully it wasn't, but I'll always get that far-away look in my eye when I hear it.

For some reason this may be my favorite episode ever. Beyond Thunderdome joke origin, lots of B-movie superstars being pathetic, bad stop-motion animation, and the locale is one of my favorites - the crappy dry part of Southern California.

Okay, I've developed a hypothesis: Aside from being a loser in general, Billy also gets static from the townsfolk 'cause his mom's a high-range hooker. THAT'S why she keeps going to Aculpulco, and why the fat deputy asks about her in a snide manner, and says she has plenty of money.
Anyway, I think that much of the backstory ended up on the cutting-room floor, due to incompetence and/or low budget. I'm reconstructing it.

So tell me folks: am I making sense or imagining things?

This was very nearly the last episode of MST3K ever. On the one hand, this would have meant ending the series on a high note; on the other, we'd have missed out on Bobo, Brain Guy, and all the great stuff from the next three seasons.
Highlights include Mike becoming a Starfleet captain, ineffectual claymation aliens, and a special guest appearance by Trace Beaulieu's real-life father.
