Just so you all know, I saw a giant anteater at the San Diego Zoo yesterday and it was really neat. All the anti-anteater stuff is definitely unwarranted.

I am officially pro-anteater.

Okay, this is my third time watching this one. So I only have this one teensy weeny little question: JUST WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON IN THIS MOVIE?! I can't figure out what the hell the movie is about! Great riffing, but really. Has anyone actually tried to follow the story?

You know, all things being equal, the Peter Lorre impersonator is actually dead on. And the corporate chairman isn't bad if you realize he's a Charles Laughton proxy.

This is a better movie to watch after viewing a second time. Much better than dreck like Time Chasers, but then so is a fourth grade production of Raisin in the Sun....


Feyd? Where's my Feyd...?

Been a long time since I've seen this, and I'm only halfway through, but I'd be sad if there's no Baron Harkkonen reference regarding the corporate chairman in it....

knock Street Fighter II, but at least that movie was based on somethng RELEVANT, and Raul played M. Bison well....THIS catastrophic calamity would make Manos seem reasonably normal....wait...no, Mans still sucks the big one.

still, give it up to the late great Gomez!

The narrator, one tool for exposition in this movie, doesn't understand the pseudoscientific exposition (around minute 30) so asks the computer for MORE EXPOSITION. It's like some "as you know Bob" infodumping gone wrong.

The riffs starting at 1:21:50 each time the two Fingals flying at the screen are the hardest I've laughed at this show in a years. "Weeee." Wooohooo." "I love this this much." "I don't care for you."

When Apalonia (or whatever the hell her name is) is checking her list of dopples, it says that a woman is being doppled into a lion named "Bruno", a man is being doppled into a panda named "Flossy", and Fingal is being doppled into Daisy....Can you only be doppled into an animal of the opposite sex?

Okay they are clearly holding this telethon thing in the castle which they haven't got to yet, and the first part of the next episode has them coming out of the worm hole back to normal present time. So where and when did they hold this thing? Pocket dimension? Limbo? A back room on the Tardis?

Or was this a special episode deal like some of the thanksgiving ones? Normaly they do continuity better, and I know they were riffing on the fact PBS made the movie and all, but come on they had Ortega there crying out loud. To paraphrase Tom Servo "how'd they get off the cockadoodie Einstein-Rosen Bridge?"

Okay so. I've seen this film a few times and I think I have a handle on what's going on. There are two like SUPER big companies in this world, Novicorp and Lexicorp. Fingal works for Novicorp, and when his body goes missing after his doppling, Lexicorp gets a hold of that information and releases it. Novicorp's stock nosedives really hard, so the Fat Man is forced to put resources into getting Fingal back/make sure he doesn't hack their Novicorp-y main frame stuff. That's about as far as I got before I just started screaming.

The baboon sequence is actually re-used footage from a nature documentary film about Africa called "Animals Are Beautiful People", which I watched almost religiously as a kid. Can't believe they showed up again! hah. The guy who made that movie would go on to direct "The Gods Must Be Crazy."

The reason this movie doesn't make much sense is because it's unfinished. They ran out of money before they could shoot several scenes and just released it as is.
