Every time the Solarite appears, I want to greet em with, "Hay Eegah! How you doin' buddy!"

Space is one long road trip, they'll need more than casual philosophical small talk to pass the time.

Mike on glasses is probably the prettiest thing I've ever heard. And I've heard Fall Out Boy live.

Those Phantom Planet people are selfish jerks for not sharing their gravity technology. The dogfaced people simply don't want to crash into their sun.

It's great when the dark-haired girl "goes to bed early" during an onslaught of enemies trying to destroy their world. Yes, your existence hanging in the balance is so boooooring.

For a second there, I thought I got another repeated actor... and I did, but was wrong about the show. Dolores Faith (Zetha, the verbally impaired brunette) at one angle mad me think "HEY... was she the facially scarred model chosen to become the donor body in The Brain that Wouldn't Die? But, alas, she wasn't. She did, however, have a part in The Human Duplicators (Which is also one of the multiple Richard Kiel movies). So there is a fairly serious connection between Phantom Planet and Human Duplicators.

I kinda like the radiation altered look for Crow. Three eyes are cool and stuff.

I saw a note somewhere that Kiel is in this movie, so I payed attention to the credits and, sure enough, he is. Then I payed attention to the movie, looking for him.... and looking for him... and... took me a while to figure out that he was the dog creature in the prison cell. So it is official that he is in THREE episodes of MST3K.

Fun fact: Richard Kiel provided the voice for "Vladimir" in Disney's Tangled.

I would never tell her this because I think she'd be upset, but I just realized that Pearl reminds me of my sister-in-law. When she says, "I need my thing!"

I was watching an episode of 'The Rifleman' recently (episode 164 : 'Requiem at Misson Springs') and was pleasantly surprised to see Dean Fredericks (Frank Chapman in this movie) as the lead bad guy. He ended up getting shot by Lucas McCain (big surprise) but his ... distinctive countenance was unmistakable !

I love Mike playing Debussy's "First Arabesque" on water glasses. I learned that on the piano. It's hard!

The good and beautiful guy is much calmer here than he was in 12 to the Moon. ...but he dies in both movies.

Stock footage, sound fx, ship models, and the mincing little co-pilot are all recycled from 12 to the Moon. Take a drink when the rocket turns left!

How about those 'angry mob torch flames' in the foreground of the Castle Forrester shot? Love the MST3k shoestring creativity. I hadn't noticed that Nanite singing 'La la la' in the opening tune or the satillite dish on top of the castle before. Always something new.

I think I enjoyed Mike and Tom's search for the perfect balance of The Good and The Beautiful more than I should have. It just makes me laugh every time!

We must keep the technology that can save the Solarites home planet from a fiery doom away from them, lest the Earth one day might be invaded by an army of three inch dog-faced men!

I betcha the astronaut with the Beverly Crusher hips threw his annoyingly wistful shipmate out into space in a fit of rage. Then, wracked by guilt and remorse, he crashed onto a random, barren asteroid and hallucinated his experience on Rheton. Unable to admit to himself that he's a murderer, his rescuers pick up a stranded madman, babbling about his fantasy world of tiny people under assault by sundogs.

Is it just me, or does "Combat Staff Duel" seem like a game kids would play in the living room on a rainy day? It looks almost as much fun as "The Floor Is Lava," and you only need a folding chair and a couple of towels to play.

The lilliputian nature of these Phantom Planet people is such a stupid and awkward plot point, and yet for all the attention they devote to the idea it honestly has a negligible impact on the movie.
