This is one of, if not the worst movie ever viewed on the SOL. It was entirely lit by two flashlights, someone obviously used a blender to edit it, but the tall blonde graduate student, Suzy, could barely open a door, had real trouble operating an elevator, and completely failed at the complex task of removing a bangle bracelet. Sheesh! Also, closing credits....Assistant Director:
Skip Schoolnik ??? Come on !!!!

Has anyone ever compiled a list of the "twas beauty killed the beast" variations the guys made over the years? There must be 50 of them.

I have to agree with Crow that it wasn't that bad of a movie. I mean this production was kind of lame, but with some touches here and there, a bigger budget, and some better acting, this would make a great remake. Also, I totally remember that Ridge Racer commercial. I do miss the 90's.

"It's Bill Mumy, and I happen to be a fan..." Well, sure, Joel. That's why you're named Robinson.

As it happens, just a couple of years after this episode aired, Bill got cast in a prominent supporting role on Babylon 5 as Lennir.

Just finished watching this episode... Let me see if I got this right: so an alien crashes on Earth 2000 years ago and unintentionally murders King Tut, then awakens in the 80's and spends the whole movie collecting batteries for his transporter thing. Then, at the end of the film, he just leaves. Awesome, next they'll make a movie about an alien waiting for an intergalactic bus that's late.

Because Joel keeps turning his head to look at Tom, you can very clearly see he's wearing his glasses during the end credits of the movie. And if you listen carefully in the middle of that bit you can hear him flip the page on his script.

Okay, so the bigwigs in the college want to keep a lid on the missing mummy story (er, so to speak). They don't want word getting out that they lost such an incredibly valuable artifact. So that's why they're not going to the police. Which would make a certain amount of sense... except that they just opened the empty sarcophagus in front of a room full of reporters. Pretty sure the cat's already out of the bag, guys. Besides, aren't you going to have to deal with things like insurance claims on the priceless rare ancient artifact?

I remember when this episode aired, we thought it was funny how this mummy moved around. Now when I'm navigating a big office building or walking through the mall I can see how convenient this mobility would be. When wishing for superpowers its easy to shoot for the stars with your flying and superhuman strength. I wish for the ability to hover sanding upright and glide around at the speed of a brisk walk.

If your methods of research are crummy,
You could unleash an alien mummy.
He will chase down the fools
Who stole his magic jewels,
And their flesh will turn greenish and gummy.

I love that at the end Servo looses it and they actually list off almost every movie they've watched. I won't give away the punch line but there's only one movie the Servo feels is as bad as this one... and he is mostly right. I feel Robot Holocaust is worse.... but I'm no Servo, and I am sure I didn't suffer as badly.
