I just noticed that during the coffee break segment, their coffee mugs all match them. Joel's and Tom's are red, Gypsy's is purple, and Crow's is gold/yellow. Also, there's some di-gel sitting on the counter. I'm not sure why it's there.

I like how Kevin Murphy makes no effort to change his voice when he does his occasional bit with Dr. CF and TVF. It's actually a little disturbing to hear that voice come out of a human. :-/

"I found it during a recent trip I made in my rocket submarine, in...er, in this general location."
This might be one of the stupidest, and therefore best, lines in the history of MST3K.

Movie: "I ain't never seen nothin' like it!"

Maybe I have a dirty mind, well, I do some days, but at 00:10:50, "it certainly sounds like, "...and now, back to men with little (insert female pelvic region here)." I am sure he meant to say "trunks." Maybe it's just my bad speakers *fingers crossed*

So this is what happens when a Harold Warren-type takes a bet that he can write better than "that hack Tennessee Williams" even with a hangover, on 48 hours' notice. Hunh!

Near the end, during a sorting out of the confusion exchange amongst the bots, Tom says: it doesn't matter.

No, it doesn't. Perhaps that is the theme of MST. What happens up there on the screen is of no importance, and you shouldn't bother your nominally-operative better brains beyond acknowledging their absurdity and cracking wise when the spirit moves you.

Though this ep is much-beloved, I still don't enjoy it that much. "Danger to Myself and Others" is funny, but it lacks the topical ellipticity and goofball energy of "Hike Up Your Pants."

I believe the Crash Corrigan serial is the oldest thing they ever watched on MST. 30s scifi had a distinct look and feel.

Y'know, it just dawned on me that there are at least three Atlantises in MST3K: The underwater Atlantis in Undersea Kingdom, New Atlantis on Jupiter's moon in Fire Maidens From Outer Space, and the Atlantis below Egypt in Alien From L.A

Did I miss any?

To those who have recently arrived:

The copy of the episode we had up for a while had commercials from the broadcast on it. That's why we're talking about OJ Simpson and stuff.

Carry on.

I love how many obscure Frank Zappa references are peppered throughout the series.... "Is that a real poncho, or is that a SEARS poncho?"....I remember reading that Frank was a huge fan very early on and went out of his way to contact the show so he could hang out at the set. I guess he became good friends with everyone in the cast and crew.

Literally the first thing I thought when I saw Shop Owner's Wife, even before the guys made the reference, was "Holy shit! It's Kubrick's 'Lolita'!" All she needed was the heart-shaped sunglasses.

I read on another site that, if that particular line doesn't make you laugh, you don't really get MST3K. I don't know about that, but I LOVE this opening, followed by Tom's excellent haiku.

I saw the 2009 remake of this on Amazon Instant Video. I think my spleen just exploded from the sheer horror of watching a movie so bad that it made a 1950s black & white film look good. I was only able to stomach a few minutes of it. My eyes!!! They burn!!!
