Classic 50's "all exposition" flick. "Before we do this, let's take 10 minutes to describe what we are doing." Love the complete corn-ball age of movies.

Glen Manning was supposed to be wed to his fiancee after the bomb test. He ran out to the bomb on purpose. The downed plane was just an excuse. "No one chains ME down!"

Heart is made up of a single cell.... (WTSF????), Security Lifted means removing security restrictions last time I recalled. The Dr was better as a drunk in "She Creature"

I liked this episode because they didn't use their stock riffs like 'Skipper... Little Buddy...Skipper!, By this time my lungs were aching for air, Bite me!, McCloud!, Ahhh Rickyyyyy!!! and 'I thought you were Dale!'.

Funny. I have been to a clinic that was a bit insensitive and judgmental in passive ways. They were bad at hiding their true opinions about people. I go in and see they have a negative opinion about me even though they try to hide that. But I didn't figure that out weeks later too. Stop going there too because they also didn't help me at all or gave me bogus help. They are still human. Make mistakes, and let too much the worst of themselves effect their work. But the latter is a big no-no in the medicine profession.

A civilian plane over an atomic bomb testing site? No, I don't think so. "It's Buddy Hackett and Mickey Rooney too." Love this illogical 50's SF movies. And the guys are hilarious!

This movie isn't realistic at all. One of their soldiers becomes a giant. The army spirits him away to do a battery of tests to understand his condition. And not once does anyone suggest the possibility of deploying him (or a battalion of giants like him) to the active war zone.

You've got to love that scientist's reaction to being asked how a man could have survived the nuclear blast:

"Obviously, there was just some sort of freak, unknown condition by which he was protected, and then he magically healed for some reason even though that's impossible by all logic and reason! GEEZ! What's the big MYSTERY?"

I want to know what it's like to be in the lab with a scientist like this. I'm imagining him receiving a grant to research a cure to rabies, and then he calls a press conference to say, "GOD! Obviously rabies could be cured with either a really, super-sciencey medical substance or some kind of crazy procedure that would make rabies go away! Now GET OF MY FRIGGIN' BACK!"

I wonder if the Marvel crew watched this movie. Glen's origin is oddly similar to Bruce Banner's. At the test of a new type of atomic bomb, an innocent civilian stumbles onto the testing ground. Guy runs out to save him, absorbs a massive amount of strange radiation, and becomes a huge monster.

Lieutenant Colonel Glenn Manning
Played the hero after a rough landing.
His fiancee was vexed
And his doctors perplexed
Because he could not stop expanding.

At 56:32, does Servo ask, "Is he jerking off?" in response to Glen's hand pointing? Joel and Crow seem to respond as if Servo said something surprising! This episode is chock full of suggestive and flat-out naughty riffs! IMO, one of the most risqué Joel era episodes.

Anybody here listen to Rob Zombie? I was watching this and was suddenly struck with the realization that he used an audio clip from this movie in a song (Demon Speeding). Crazy! Anyway, love this ep. Heheheh, the host segments were hilarious! And the riffs were great! That doctor guy was a jerk though! Trying to convince what's her face to leave Glenn all by himself. And why couldn't they just hold off on the bullets for a bit, huh?? The guy might have survived!

I really wasn't looking forward to this one as I had already seen the War of the Colossal Beast episode first (didn't know it was a sequel) but this one was actually funnier than the sequel episode. (Both are great, but this one had me rolling)

The doctor with the giant hypodermic needle is the funniest thing I saw in the movie -- except the part where Glen harpoons the doc with it.

I don't know if it's just on my tablet or what but the video's audio is playing at a super slowed down speed, and I need to say, the theme music sounds REALLY COOL slowed down haha, makes me think of like Devo, but somehow...haunting.

You know, of all the stink piles I've seen these guys riff, with their B-Movie pseudo-science and mis-placed terror about atomic energy and all, the scientific explanation in this one is probably the most painful. I might need a lie down after that "single-celled heart" schpiel... WOW

As a biology major, the scientific explanation "the heart is made up of a single cell and that's why it isn't growing as fast" made me burst out laughing. Seriously, writers? I mean sure, amazing colossal man, but if you give a scientific fact, CHECK IT!! Sheesh.
