He made an artificial man, he's a mad scientist, he's flamboyant, he controls people like a Jedi, he's got huge eyes...The Bat is basically Fat Mexican Tim Curry from Rocky Horror Picture Show.

This film is simply horrible, and almost the worst they have ever done! If I didn't love the short (notice how much it influenced George Lucas), I would recommend not even watching this one. 90+% of the film is flashback with cumbersome narrative. Characters appear and are introduced later, and the whole thing could have been told in a half-hour.

The epic showdown at the end between mummy and machine, rivals even Batman V Superman in terms of sheer scope and level of choreography.

You know, I have a hard time watching any of the Season 1 episodes. The pacing just feels off in most of them. Don't get me wrong, they are all great, but I typically tend to skip over the season 1 stuff because of this.

I wonder if Commando is Cody's first name instead of a ersatz rank. Maybe hi s mom's maiden name? After all, Clark Kent's mother was a Clark before she married Pa Kent. Maybe Cody is distantly related to IT goddess Kim Kommando. (Possibly her side of the family was able to keep the original spelling going through Ellis Island.)

Henderson rules out a test flight because the Rocketship is top secret. Doesn't ordering them to fly to moon kind of reveal the secret?

This is one of the absolute worst episodes ever. I hated the movie so much that the riffs weren't worth sticking around for.

This movie is pure exposition dialogue. The plot is boring (not to mention stupid), the acting is wooden, the voice actors that dubbed this into English are even more wooden, and the characters are bland and one-dimensional.
I'm surprised this didn't win any awards.

I gotta say , as goofy as the short was, they did go out of their way to explain a lot of things that many sci-fi shows, even today, take for granted. How the moonians can speak English, why their technology is more advanced, why they're invading Earth in the first place. I have to give them credit for that.

You know, the music is the most exciting thing about the movie, desperately trying to incite action from the film. Given that it fails, it just sounds odd in comparison.

Link 2 is the closed captioned version produced by SubBot (and edited by me). There is one quote at the end from Tom Servo that has a ???? in it. We are having problem figuring out what he is saying because of all the daemon dogs barking. If you can hear him, and know what is missing from the quote, please let us know. We also are looking for any comments, typos. etc, so feel free to add a note to this comment.

Our Hero is possibly the worst husband in the history of bad film "protagonists." He forces his wife to relive a tragic, painful, past-life demise. Then he exposes her to the vengeful spirit of her time-tossed ex, leaves her alone for long periods of time so a psycho rival can abduct her for "dates" at the graveyard, and he lets her Dad die horribly to boot.

Okay, maybe "Mike" from Manos is worse, since he also let a Lord of the Underworld take his little daughter for an eternally-damned wife. But other than that... :/

I havent watched a season 1 episode since it was first aired...tonight feels special! I wish Joel would do some kind of collaboration with his old partners in the form of an MST3k reunion where Joel takes the helm of some of the post-season 5 episodes...would love to see him riff The Screaming Skull (with dr forrester and tvs frank in lieu of pearl/bobo/brain guy).

Yup .. there's little doubt that this film is one awesomely crafted piece of sh*t! Amazing to think that anyone actually looked at the final cut and thought "Yeah .. this entertains me, and I think they'll love it!". ... Just kept wishing that everyone would die quickly, but no, they just had to keep going didn't they.
