They are supposed to be smart enough to have made a time travel device, but they don't know the basics of radiation protection.

despite what the prolog says, the first earth satellite was launched in 1957 and not in 1958. Sputnik 1 went into orbit in October 1957.

I LOVE the way Pearl says "... the hell?!" In the opening segment with the brain guys. Just the right amount of outrage mixed in with some disbelief, skepticism, and belligerence.

What a caring and sensitive nurse. Reminds me of a night shift nurse I had in the hospital as a kid. This chick didn't like giving shots and blood made her woozy. You just can't make that kinda stuff up! hahaha

This is an episode that grew on me. I used to skip it more often than watch it, but my last couple of times through the series, I have really come to enjoy it. It's so much fun and every time Mike says "Oh, Bob.", mocking the doctor, I can't help but smile.

So he figured out that the statue was from the year 5200 A.D. by just doing math? Didn't have to run any tests on the material, or...?

I finally signed up despite my hatred of signing up for things just to tell the world that if thinking Mike hugging Servo in this opening isn't unbearably cute is wrong, then I don't wanna be right.

Pretty sure that the statue wouldn't carbon date from the future because it's based on half-life... so if it was made new in its time and then sent to the scientists in the movie... it should show as new, not *dramatic announcer voice* FROM THE FUTURE. Things never have _more_ carbon than when it's new. And I know, I know "repeat to yourself it's just a show" but it's not the show, it's the movie. I'm just saying. It's the fundamental problem with the plot.

You know...in different circumstances, Kevin could have been a successful crooner. He really does have a lovely singing voice. Mike could have been his accompanist, and even Bill isn't bad as a backup.

This was the very first episode I saw here in Sweden, must have been 15+ years ago. Loved MST3K ever since. Funny how they messed up the time on the wall clock in a movie that has time travel in it. Hmm...

58:58 Great homage to the Beatles "Hard Days Night". That exact reference was made to Paul McCartney's grandfather on the train. Servo even used his best Liverpool accent. I actually went back in time. Thank you Servo.

As often as people referred to Dr. Hedges by his last name, Mike and the bots didn't jump on it by calling the other person "Benson". There was a whole vein to mine with menthols, 100's, Ultra-lights...

An uncomfortable moment during the "non-food pills" sketch: Mike references (and quotes) the Frugal Gourmet. This ep aired the month before the abuse allegations blew wide open. On the upside, the same sketch had a nifty Basil Fawlty imitation by TS. And was that Kaboom cereal in the Observer's bowls?

I like how he just takes highly radioactive material through the air-port in a brown paper parcel.
(Note: to government big brother types who picked up on the words "radioactive" and "air-port" it's just a reference to the movie linked above.)

Okay, Carbon 14 dating would't tell you how far something has come through time, only how long it has existed which would come to how long it was in the future + how long it was in the past/present. That is to say if it were made in the year 5200 and a year later it was brought back in time and was then dated 3 days later carbon 14 dating would reveal it to be not -3250
some odd years but rather 1 year 3 days.

Also it doesn't work on metals.

Tom just wanted the chance to have Mike sing the Animaniacs theme.

(Nice J. Peterman homage there, too, Tom. Totally Nineties!)

At least The Creeping Terror got its title half right. The Terror From the Year 5000 doesn't just fail to terrify, but it actually comes from the year 5200. Tisk tisk. Observer musical number in the middle makes it worthwhile.
