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.

dude, at 7:59, Mike says "Roxy!" like that whiny smush-faced kid from Eegah...which was before Mike's character was introduced!

Is it just me or was this the only episode without "keep circulating the tapes" in the credits?

Leonard Maltin gave this a higher rating than Fight Club. Enjoy.

Hey! The guy who picks up Billy at around the 1:20 mark...could he be a relative of Torgo? If so, Mike is related to Torgo also, since he's the other guy's cousin...hahahahaha.....

Wow, that gas station explosion was pretty bare. Almost like there was nothing inside of it.

Here's the main theme (It's...actually pretty good, although I don't think it was written FOR Laserblast), if anyone's interested: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjWeO7TZgoU

Mike puts his arm around him to console him. Like, "I know buddy, I know."

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?

By far, my favorite episode, mainly due to the "2001" references, which IS my favorite movie of all time. Gonna miss Dr. F. though, even though that name comes from my second favorite movie, "War of the Worlds!"

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.

Eddie Deezen as Froggy is somehow less piercing and shrill than usual. Still a far cry from his performance as Mandark on "Dexter's Lab."

Crow mentions the Dixie Dregs in this episode when he's making fun of Mike's youth. That has to be one of the most obscure references on the show. Great band, though.

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 movie leaves me with a lot of questions. Why is Billy shooting up the town? Who are the guys in the airplane? Do they just go out every day and shoot people in the desert? What was the guy in suit's purpose for being there? And why would Chuck be friends with Froggy?

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.
