Trace kinda looks like Peter Davison the 5th Doctor on Doctor Who.

This reminds me of a CBS Children's Film Festival movie.

For a movie that has an emotionally inept character, it still manages to be more intriguing than any M. Night Shamalyan film. That's impressive.

Reading through these comments it seems like this movie is pretty divisive. Personally I really like it. It reminds me of how Joel describes Robot Monster, "it's cool in a kind of dark, surrealistic way." Actually, more than anything else, this movie makes me think of the original Tarkovsky version of "Solaris". It's like an extended fever dream put to film.

Jeez, these episodes were so badly made .. They totally lack energy, and direction. I mean in know these were the early years and all but .. Damn! They really had no screen presence at all. Thankfully season 2 picked up nicely with Kevin Murphy. It's just surprising to see Joel and company act so blandly here.

Anyone else actually like this movie? I ended up ignoring the riffs and just enjoyed the film for what it was. I really want to see the uncut/restored version now.

I'm not sure, but I feel like this is in the top five for most boring films ever riffed. No idea how a person could sit through it without Joel and the bots.

'Bon, bon, bon, mahato bon....' Choppy but not too unbearable until they get to Dessa. Most annoyed by too many hairy moles and shots of Niya looking wide-eyed into the camera. Joel and the bots kept me sane.

this actress is so hauntingly beautiful, but I cant find any info on her....Elena Metelkina or Yelena Metyolkina.

I got a kick out of the fact that they named the robot maid "Hazel".

Under different circumstances, I think "Go to the astra" could have been the companion piece to "Leave the Bronx."

The host segments may look familiar; most of them got recycled in Season 1.

This may be the strangest movie ever given the official MST3K treatment; it's certainly one of the most thoroughly butchered. Between its original theatrical release and the the making of this episode, "Humanoid Woman" has been


  • ...assembled from portions of two feature-length movies

  • ...translated from Russian to English

  • ...re-released as two feature-length movies with a new translation

  • ...handed over to Sandy Frank for the usual treatment

  • ...pared down by BBI to fit the KTMA timeslot.


Small wonder that the movie makes as much sense as it does; although parts of it would not, I suspect, make sense under any circumstances. Why create an army of androgynous Sinead O'Connoroids in the first place? Who decided to cast a thirty-eight-year-old actor as a teenage gymnast, and two women of roughly the same age as his mother and grandmother? What in the blue blazes is going on with everyone's hair?!
