I love how sheet music spills out of the piano bench Pearl upends in her fit of rage. It's the little details like that, that put a wry smile on my face!

I swear, this movie gets more annoying with each re-watch: so annoying that I wish Space Chief and Krankor had crashed it halfway through. Also, let's hear it for John "Bug Eyes" Law and his ONE facial expression.

I'm wondering did the movie makers steal a set from Star Trek or Rocky Jones.
For some reason I had an urge to listen to the band BOSTON.Plus why "The Pretender" part where he looks thru that opening then closes it again

so.....i'm now wondering how Crow, Servo, Gypsy and Cambot return to the SOL...how Pearl, Bobo and Brainguy get back to the VW Bus.....and, well.....nvm, I'll just repeat to myself "it's just a show"....and really try to relax

btw, 11th season stays canon, and is freakin' great

I just heard the strains of "Who Will I Kill?" (the farewell to Frank at the end of season 6). In the transition from the SOL going down to Mike, Tom and Crow in their shared apartment, just a few notes, but it was unmistakably that song.

Before Servo said it, I thought the same thing. All of Diabolics' plans involve hopefully not getting shot by a hail of bullets, and dumb luck.

I have to say out of all the mst3k's this movie was probably the best! It had the most potential at least! While everything was horrible, Diabolik was cool!!

One of my favorite callbacks in this episode is Servo talking about babes fanning him and rubbing him with exotic oils which, of course, comes from the KTMA days.

Like Joe Don Baker, Celi was in a James Bond movie; unlike Baker, he was the Bond nemesis/top villain. It was the non-MGM/Broccoli re-make of 'Thunderball', and the last Sean Connory Bond gig (aptly titled "Never Say Never Again". He was the commandant of the Italian prison camp in the film adaptation of 'Von Ryan's Express' (which I re-watched recently), as well. He may have been in the seminal 'The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly', as I recall, too...I think I remember him as the sadistic Union Army prison camp warden who made the rag-tag band play to mask the sound of his guy beating the crap out of Eli Wallach. He was certainly hanging around the desert movie sets of Toscana at the time...I'd have to look at the G,B,atU. titles (or just watch it again; I have the 3+hr European cut from which the 2 1/2 hr. US release was culled, but haven't seen it for a long time. I spend too much time over here) Celi seemed to be having a good old time here, and gleefully chewed the scenery. No less, he made the stinger and got the last word(s) on the [gulp!] 11 year run: "Is that stud?......Coming?"

Love ya, Brains and bots! Like those well-programmed losers on the bus-line, I'm going to go watch 'The Crawling Eye' now.

"Nice that gold has a lower melting point than steel. It's the only way we could get it."

Good point, Diabolik. Because if the steel casing melted, and the gold inside didn't, how the thundering hell would you ever get to the gold?

The idea of Diabolik being like Robin Hood reminds me of a line from Blackadder series 3 in which Baldrick is describing a famous highwayman:
Baldrick: They say he's halfway to becoming the next Robin Hood.
Blackadder: Why halfway?
Baldrick: Well, he steals from the rich, but he hasn't quite gotten 'round to giving to the poor yet...

Also, RIP MST3k (*tear*)

That gold ingot is way too big to be just twenty tonnes. Eighty would be more like it.

Even eighty tonnes would be about $90 million US. That sort of figure wouldn't have seriously dented even Italy's cash reserves.

I'm sorry. Things like that just get to me sometimes. I put way too much thought into these things. I really should just relax.
