When they yell "serpentine!" (and they often do) I assume that's a reference to The In-Laws, which strikes me as extremely obscure, even in the early '90s.

D'aahh, jeezus... how many of these damn' movies use the same old White Sands captured V-2 test launch footage? That's frickin' sad, man.

Oh, and stop me if I'm wrong, but isn't that the same meteor shower that they used in "12 To The Moon"? Maa-aaan, this is getting worse by the minute.

...d'ohh, man, and check out THIS crap! That's from "King Dinosaur"! Seriously, man -- the landing footage is TOTALLY "King Dinosaur"! Cheap bastards. B'wahh ha ha ha hah!

Anyone else sorta feel Hestia is the bad guy of the film?
She's out of the compound despite later saying it's impossible to leave. Why was she out? Her father doesn't mention sending her. Was she out to try and intercept the astronauts or make a deal with the monster (thinking she could manipulate him like he apparently does Prassus)?
She's apparently got Prassus so wrapped around her finger he marries her off first even though it should be the dark-haired chick.
She basically molests the one guy (he was so drugged he passed out and she still was all over him, he even tried to push her off at first; no consent).
As soon as she finds a bigger man on campus, she drugs Prassus, talks up how evil he is and then makes off with them.
Finally, after getting all her competition out of the way she leaves for Earth where she will likely play up her role as royalty to marry some King or something.

(With thanks/apologies to Alex C, who started it in Sidehackers.)

"Have I got a movie for you!"
"Yeah? Tell me about it."
"A bunch of astronauts land on a planet filled with women in short skirts."
"Okay, I like it. So what happens? "
"What do you mean?"
"They land on the planet, and...?"
"There are women there. And they're wearing short skirts."
"And...?"
"And they're real lonely because the only man there is their father."
"Wait, is this Pirates of Penzance?"
"Penzance? What's that?"
"Never mind. So what happens?"
"Happens? The women are lonely. So... Uh... They capture two of the men. "
"Wait, is this pornography?"
"No, no. Of course not."
"It's sounding a lot like one of those letters in Penthouse Magazine."
"I, uhm, have, er, no idea what that is. Is it a magazine about nice apartments?"
"Right, sure. Why are there only women on this planet?"
"The plot doesn't work otherwise."
"Silly me. So, fine. They capture two of the men. What about the others?"
"They have to wait outside."
"Outside what? "
"Uhm, Atlantis."
"Atlantis?! I thought you said this was in outer space."
"It is! This is the remains of a colony. The people of Atlantis knew the place was sinking, so they moved to one of the moons of Jupiter."
"They what? Fine, whatever. They're on one of the moons of... Wait, I thought it was a planet."
"What's the difference?"
"Never mind. So why do the other men have to wait outside?"
"You said you didn't want it to be a porno. We've got to show something else."
"..."
"Anyway, it builds tension, see? Because they don't know what's going on inside!"
"Ah, yes. Of course! So they attempt a daring rescue?"
"Huh? No, they just sit around, fretting."
"Uh-huh. Anything else?"
"Uhm, and... uh... There's this monster! A big, scary one! Bulletproof and everything!"
"A monster? Now you're talking! What does it do? "
"It, uh, lurks in the bushes and kind of follows people around."
"And then?"
"Well, it lurks some more. Builds tension, see?"
"Uh-huh. So how does it end?"
"Oh, uh... Let me see... The monster breaks in!"
"Action! At last! Does it terrorize them? Is there a fight?"
"No, no! What, you want to give the audience heart attacks?"
"Heart attacks? What..? "
"My uncle Lou is going to be in the audience. He wouldn't miss it! And he's got a very weak ticker. A fight scene would kill him! You want to kill my uncle Lou, is that it?"
"No. Uh, of course not. Perish the thought. What was I thinking? Okay, then, what happens with the monster?"
"Oh, they trip it and throw it in a fire. You can't see it, of course. Uncle Lou would never survive."
"What happens to the old man?"
"What old man?"
"The father."
"He dies."
"Does the monster get him?"
"What? No! What's wrong with you? He dies peacefully, in his sleep, after drinking too much wine, surrounded by beautiful women. Just like uncle Lou would want."
"So what you're telling me is that two guys get captured by a bunch of women, and nothing happens."
"Pretty much. Isn't that what I said in the first place?"
"Why would I want to make that into a movie?"
"Did I mention the women are wearing short skirts?"
"How short are we talking?"
"Very! You can see their knees!"
"Sold!"

The Dark Spectre that was Timmy! Movie gets interesting at 54:00 when Timmy enters stage right only to disappear at commercial sign. But then, slowly rising up from a seat...Timmy is back... silent as the grave he watches and waits, hiding each time Servo tells Joel that he is there. So funny but also creepy, I couldn't believe it when at 1:06:50 his mouth ominously opens as he leans towards Servo and, sure enough, he bites him! Best 15 minutes of this episode.

Soooooooooooo....The Atlanteans had enough advanced technology to move their entire population to a moon of Jupiter. And yet.....THEY DIDN'T KNOW THAT ONLY THEIR ISLAND WAS SINKING?? D: What, were their scientists too busy smoking to tell everyone that they only had to relocate to another place on Earth, which could easily be done since they had incredible amounts of technology?

I really love the host segments in this one, the whole "dark spectre" version of Crow thing.

Something I never knew before was that along with spare versions and spare parts for Crow and Servo, the Toolmaster had also made a set of matte black-on-black versions for use in the theater, so that they would chroma-key silhouette properly against the blue screen. I never knew this until I saw a foto in the Episode Guide of Murphy, Trace and Nelson seated in the theater set preparing to get down to some riffing.

I love how they repurposed the black-on-black theater version of Crow to play the part of Crow's "dark spectre" duplicate, "Timmy". Nice stand-in puppet work by the Toolmaster, there, too.
