That wife really needs to get laid or something, she's the most depressed character in any movie I've ever seen!
And Eadie's fake 'cute' smile... Jesus that's scarier than any monster shown on MST3K!

The wife immediately earns my hatred and lack of respect in record time. Reminds me of my ex, she could find a way to complain about having to breathe other peoples air and share pool water when it was her idea to go swimming. People like her are the reason man invented booze.

The short forgot to mention how modern communications will make it possible to pretend to be using your "portable phone" in public to avoid human interaction and even become so involved in your "portable phone" at home that you will forget you even have a family and they will forget all about you! ahhh...the wonders of technology...will they ever cease to amaze.

So, if the blob has telekinetic powers and is omniscient, why does it need the children? Whatever they did to the rocket, couldn't it have just done it itself and saved the parents a lot of worry? "Put a jacket on if your going to take over the world!" I entertained the idea that the children are conduits for the blob's power but then, there's that scene where the blob interrupts the phone lines and no child is present! That's it, now I need to go repeat something to myself.

I'm sure everyone has heard, but I'll leave this here anyway; I hope it doesn't read too much like a press release. RIP Russell Johnson, who, while playing a drunken lout of a stepfather in "The Space Children," was everyone's favorite Professor on "Gilligan's Island," and a dedicated charcter actor in dozens of other roles (just under two-hundred, in fact), especially in sci-fi and Western genres. By all accounts a good man and decent human being, who lived long enough to see the joy he brought to millions, he will be greatly missed.

I'll admit it. I kind of like this movie. Yes, the soundtrack is pointless, and there's some weak acting, but the plot of it is kind of cool. Children controlled by a supposedly benevolent, omnipotent power...but a power which is willing to cause injury in order to achieve its goals. Kind of reminds me of the unnamed powers in 2001, 2010, and 2061 (the books).

You know, it's the little things that get my love from this episode. Servo's noises he makes during the short including the spit and splat when they're on the Space Needle. Also the way he just happily bounces along to the music. Then Crow's sudden biting remarks. Definitely Corbett at the top of his game.

How long do you think you could last if you were stranded on an island with the wife in this movie. Shade under the palms, plenty of coconuts, and sand. So much sand.

9:30 What they don’t tell you is that the only reason pigeons were trained to do that was so they could pilot early pigeon based guided missiles. That’s sounds like a joke, but it isn’t.
