Wait, I just realized something! If Derek is the son of the alien ruler, wouldn't that make him...

The Prince of Space?

These outfits the space teenagers have are the same as Mork, but inverted colors. They are the Orkan road-uniforms!

I stumbled across this looking into this film. The writer/director, Tom Graeff, and the actor who plays Derek were romantic partners. Graeff also played Joe in this film. Graeff had a tragic life after this, and "Derek" disappeared a year after this film was made, never to be found again, even by his family.

What's that? You're a total stranger with no references, no possessions, no income, and you won't even tell us a single thing about you beyond your first name? No problem! Come live in my house for free, take my son's clothes, borrow the car, and go drive off with my teenage daughter. I'm sure it'll be fine. Oh? You don't know how to drive? No license? Never been in a car before? Well, Betty can teach you the basics. I'm sure you'll figure it out. Say, wait a sec. You're not a Russian spy or anything, are you? Nah, just kidding. Forget I asked. Go on, have fun!

This one is right at the top of my list of perfect episodes for a newbie's first MST3K experience. It's just got it all -- great host segments, great riffing, and a perfectly riffable movie. Laughable "monster," horrible acting, ridiculous premises -- and the dialogue has all these pauses, sometimes in the middle of a sentence, sometimes in the middle of a WORD. Just makes it easy for them. The movie basically leans into the punches.

They don't waste much time before introducing uncanny coincidences to move things forward; emerging from the flying saucer while initially wearing a USAF helmet worn by jet aviators in the 50s. What are the odds that an Alien race which is so evolved that their diet consists of only lobster meat, would not be able to come up with something beyond a crash helmet?

I have to say that this movie was surprisingly good. For what looks like a really low-budget movie, it still manages to engage me more than films like "Mitchell" or any of the Transformers movies. It was surprisingly good!

Ok.... I had to do a little modification on this note. At the beginning, the wacko alien says that the gorgon will grow to millions of percents of it's original size in the span of a day. Looks like it is about a foot long (body without claws). Later the protagonist says it will grow to the size of the City Hall. If it is a foot long at dawn and will grow. say, 2,000,000%, at the end of the day it will be 378.7878787878788 miles long, which is more than slightly larger than the City Hall.

In the olfactory bit in the beginning Joel and the bots refer to that pink stuff that would cover puke at school. Do they still use that stuff or have come up with something better? I never threw up at school. Never heard about anyone doing it either. Though, many times I found the custodian cleaning up a batch in the hallway. Maybe it was the custodian's puke.

The biggest disappointment of this experiment for me was the failure of anyone to recognize the "TORTURE!" guy as King Moody, who was Siegfried's assistant Shtarker on Get Smart, as well as the first Ronald McDonald in the 70's. I was looking forward to a slew of "Zis is KAOS, ve don't thppttt here!!" jokes, but alas, it was not to be.
