I watched this movie before bed last night and woke up this morning to see that Ian McShane had been cast in the American Gods series. I thought to myself "Surely not the same one in this turkey.", but nope. THIS guy will be playing Odin.

Dr Sherman is the same guy Scotty showed the formula for transparent aluminum to in Star Trek IV: Planet of the 80's. http://www.scifihistory.net/uploads/3/0/6/7/30676431/8846347_orig.jpg

The cloth of gold is a real species of shellfish. It's related to the geographer's cone snail. Both species' venom really can kill humans and there's no antidote.

Just in case you were wondering. :)

The 'He who smelt it, dealt it' line in the first host segment brought me right back to grade school. Somehow, hearing it from Mike and the 'Bots is much more entertaining.

I finally figured out where the guy was from who the bots were trying to figure out. He's the guy who plays Victor Neuman in Young and the Restless.

I don't think that in this nor in the General Hospital shorts do they make a single 'The Invaders' reference.

The implication at the end that Frank can walk off being electrocuted down to just a skeleton much better than Dr. Forrester can is quite fitting, don't you think?

I just noticed that the brushes Frank and Dr. F. are using to clean themselves at the end are actually the big push brooms that you screw onto a handle. You can even see the holes. :)

"A Day at the Fair" might very well be my favorite short! There are more laugh-out-loud moments here than any other that leap to mind. I was literally bent over laughing uncontrollably during the cow contest part.

Also, they missed a good opportunity for a Sun Ra reference at 14:30 or so: "Up! Up! Up in the air!" (That's almost exactly a line from the song called "Rocket Number 9", so it's not like there's any shortage of Sun Ra references on the show, but still)

This is one of those things where the director has only the vaguest idea what a "plot" is, but decides if he strings together a bunch of random happenstance and dumb code names it should be good enough.

Although Mike pointed it out at the wrong place in the end credits, this WAS filmed entirely on location in Hawaii! Unlike Hawaii 5-O or Magnum PI, it showed the real place, not just swanky hotels, clubs and beaches. Victor Newman had about 4 lines; he looked like a svelt Tom Selleck to me.

Great MST3K episode, bad made for tv movie lol. Love the 70's. Trivia time: Just so you know,Lovejoy was a bad tv series where Ian McShane ala Lovejoy aka Codename Tree (great codename btw lol) played a cop or P.I. or sumthin'. Series lasted a few yrs. believe it or not! The big tubby Hawiiaan dude is ZULU aka the original KONO from Hawaii 5-O, and NOO Grace Park is not the original KONO.She just likes playing guy parts like in the re-make of Battlestar Galactica she played BOOMER (another guy part, black guys part actually).The hott chinese lady Frances Nugyen or whateva was on the original Star Trek as "Elaan Of Troyus" aka the princess chick whose tears made you love her if you touched them. Roy Thinnes aka Diamond-Head also was on Battlestar Galactica for 5 seconds as a crimminal/demolitions expert on that "ice Station" eipsode. Ward Costello aka the fat old man who was Codename Aunt Martha or sumthin' lol was Admiral Quinn from STTNG season ONE. He kicked Riker's ass into a coffee table while possessed by those throat parasites! And last but not least Eric Braeden aka That Mustached-Guy, aka The "Rat Patrol" Guy and like someone else mentioned The Young & Restless Soap Opera star Victor Newman, but did you know his real name was actually Hans Gruber or sumthin' like that! Maybe I'm thinking of the original "Die-Hard" movie but I know his name was originally Hans sumthin' like that! He changed it after The Rat Patrol show went off the air I guess because it/HE sounded TOO German but then again he did play a German desert commander on the show soo? That woulda been weird having a guy named Hans playing a wealthy cosmetics CEO on Y&R huh lol. Well thats all for me, until then Zig Heil, I mean toodles :-D

Ok, I was prepared to just say "Ian McShame on you" and leave it at that, but then the unabashed lameness of that last scene nearly decapitated me! I think the director just made it up at lunch! And none of them seemed the least bit worried about security for the Korean Ambassador!
