Holy smokes. The misogyny in this film is at an all-time high. "Apologize for what - being momentarily a woman?" "Doctor, you're not going to let emotion into this now, are you?" Female character asks: "I suppose you think a woman should cook and clean and rear children." Male character answers: "Isn't that enough? There's such a thing as going too far in the other direction, too, you know." Granted, I'm only forty minutes in. But did they include a woman in this film just to prove that women shouldn't go to space? Sheesh.

Man. Joel, as a prop comic, really hates Gallagher (whose specials, which include prop comedy, frequently aired on Comedy Central at the time). He goes out of his way to say that Gallagher is really not funny in several episodes. I'm almost surprised that Comedy Central allowed it.

I hate people who say Kevin Murphy's Servo voice is better. Even though I was born around the time MST3k stopped rerunning. I actually prefer Joshes voice over Kevins. It gives him a more young club guy which makes it alot funnier.

Josh was only 17 when he started on the show. Word is he didn't mesh well with the rest of the cast, who were considerably older. I'm much more fond of Frank and Kevin, but they all worked really well together in Cinematic Titanic. Still, some fans at the time were hugely disappointed by the change. One actually mailed in a six foot banner saying "I HATE TOM SERVO'S NEW VOICE!" Kevin was impressed enough that he hung it in his office.

It's also the second version of cambot, who goes through a number of modifications. Also, Josh kinda grew on you, but he wanted to move on and Frank does a great job at being evil scientist #3. One can tell they got some money due to the two new sets, SOL and Deep 13.
