Okay, so for some odd reason, when the final notes were playing at the end of the movie, I suddenly had "He tried to kill me with a forklift!" in my head. Not sure why.

So...what I draw from the final scenes of the movie is that Linda and Jessica were both under the control of the ineffectual head, after Mike was killed. Hank was never in the head's control, right? So, he was too busy being drunk to pay attention to anything? And Aunt Flav-o-flav was too money-grubbing to pay attention to things being weird? Only Gordon was actually in his right mind and noticing that things weren't right?

Why is it artists like Servo can't create art without a grant from the Chubb Group first?

i need to start torrenting episodes, why is it that a lot of Sci-Fi era episodes are blocked/removed? Is NBC Universal REALLY that money-grubbing??

Unfortunate that the movie was pulled from youtube. This is a classic for sure, and Jan in the Pan returns over and over for the rest of the show. I love how the end of the movie credits have the WRONG title of the movie!! How sloppy can an editor be to get the NAME OF THE MOVIE wrong in the credits! I also crack up with Crow says "hey that should be the thing that couldn't die the end" all in one run on sentence when he discovers the credits were wrong. P.S. The end credits say "The Head that Couldn't Die", for those who can't see this episode. But in the end, shouldn't that have been the name of the movie? I guess they didn't want to give away the plot in the title.

An underrated episode. Mostly consistently funny, although on re-watching it, I noticed that after about the 200th hot-chicks-making-out joke, those ceased to be funny. Kind of like them overdoing the wide/narrow jokes in Assignment Venezuela. I'm rarely critical of the eps, but the could have cut the number girl-on-girl jokes in half and they would have retained their impact.

Okay, now, I'm not advocating peeping, but... (what an opening, huh?) I don't buy that he peeps at her fully dressed and just as she begins to remove her clothes, he tips his hat and walks away. Riiiiight. Angelo from Terror from the Year 5000 at least knew to stick around for the good stuff!

The villain is the least unlikable person in this drab, preposterous snoozefest. Archetta Hall Jr has it right; they should all be killed by falling tree boughs.

One of the things that interests me about this movie is that Jessica proves she has these powers, that she's had them her whole life and yet, when she warns the others about the dangers of digging up the chest, of searching for the coffin, the evil that it will bring, they all scoff at her. Who's the person who can dowse for water and find things and hear voices? Now, do we believe her or the people who didn't even believe all that was possible? It's almost like Cassandra at Troy...only that story was a lot better. :)

I'm kind of surprised a movie from 1958 showed a guy's head being cut off point blank as opposed to implying it like in The Undead, whether it looked cheesy or not.

So, this is how Brain Guy came on board. My daughter is going to a Dr. Who party and is considering going as an Ood (Brain Guy plus tentacles) just to see how long you can actually function holding your brain before it gets knocked to the floor and stepped on. I do miss Frank, Dr. F. and sweet Crow.

I love it when the pale faced dude is dictating his analysis of Mike, and Mike's reactions the subtle insults. Classic.

That dickweed rode around on a horse with his sketchpad on his lap? "It makes a beautiful picture. I think I'll sketch it." Sketch a picture while riding a horse. Right.

Does the character of Mike in this movie remind anybody else of the Rockbiter from Neverending Story? "I've got strong hands."

Man, Jessica is such a brat! I mean, who is so quick to wish death on their loved ones after not getting their way? Either die from revealing THE EVIL, or die from a falling tree...way to give your family a decent choice, kid!

The comedy central era is the best in every way, whether hosted by Joel or Mike. Trace Beaulieu was as much of an asset to the show as Kevin Murphy. Bill Corbett always seemed like he tried too hard, like the annoying kid in a group of friends who tries to fit in.
