The movie ending is absolutely priceless....I can hear it now "Hey could we see the watch drift to the bottom? No? Let's shoot it again with someone dropping the watch in so we can see it. Don't worry, I will clean it all up in post-production!"

Man, these poor bad guys. You send a lackey to kill the good guy and he fails, you send another lackey to kill that lackey and HE fails. And all these bedroom and cigarette scenes, and the soundtrack... it's like a shlocky porno but instead of sex there's incredibly dull chase scenes and toy boats.

So, unless I missed it, Mike and the Bots go the entire episode without once referring to the main character as "Fart Bargo." I can only aspire to one day possess that kind of restraint.

If I remember right, the bit where Servo uses his 'peaceful' death ray to zap Crow and he stumbles on with his head smouldering.. is in fact in one of those outtakes segments.. and when his head bursts into flames wasn't supposed to happen. Traces' scream cracks me up everytime. :)

Watching "Nido de Espias":
- There is a precredits sequence cut where the two NATO ministers are kidnapped at road work crew and replaced with Frank & "Barber Shop Quartet" guy. The bad guys use combo jack hammers/machine guns to hijack the limo.
- The credits are in Spanish, though the dialogue is the same dubbed English as in MST3K.
- Ever wonder why the bad guys don't steal the peace loving" death ray when they kidnap Dr. Carmichael? What happened to "Barber Shop Quartet" guy? Frank and "Barber Shop Quartet guy" actually sabotage the death ray. Brian in video booth staggers to the console and remotely closing the door--trapping "SQ" guy who gets shot by Frank. Frank shoots the security guard on the phone as they bust through the lift gate as they escape.
- Where did Professor Carmichael white lab coat go when they reach Billy's sub?
- After the briefing, Bart Fargo visits the lab and watches the security film--and recognizes Frank.
- Bart and Mrs. Carver exchange a little more small talk on the plane and Bart tries to steal her seat belt.
- We see a little of Lucille's roof before he drops in.
- We learn that Carver is the Big Bad when Lucille and Bart have a drink at the Morocco. Al (Poor Al!) is given 3 hours to kill Fargo--making his defection more understandable. Lucille and Fargo share a LOOONG kiss.
- While trying on Crow's Italian sunglasses for men, a short bit is cut where Lucille cries out when she is stuffed into a car to the other villa before Al uses his blow dart to kill one of the Three Tenors and help Fargo escape.
- They cut a lot on the last commercial: We don't see how Fargo kills Frank. Carver arrives with a lot of mooks who are killed by Fargo and Al, before Al (Poor Al!) gets shot by Mrs. Carver.
- Where did they get the death ray at the end? Did Carver just take it from the lab he was running?
- The Stinger (Hand dropping the watch into the pool) is edited properly in this version!
- FIN

Like Stephen was saying 2 years ago, I'm surprised, and slightly confused by this ep's popularity--I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it--but it's on the list (a rather short list, mind you) of episodes that made almost NO impression on me--along with Code Name: Diamond Head, The Phantom Planet, The Hellcats, and a few others.

Am I missing something? I'm gonna watch this tonight and see if I can figure out why I don't remember this film better.

What is the deal with the soundtrack? Somebody dub in an 'Elevator Greatest Hits' album by mistake? As infectious as it is; it doesn't suit the film in any way. You know how James Brown wrote the soundtrack for 'Black Caesar' without having seen the film yet knocked it out of the park? Well I think it's a similar situation here; only the complete opposite (as in didn't knock it out of the park).

For the big ending the villian sees Fargo through the little window so he uses the death ray to make a door for Fargo to come in and kill him. I was so numbed by this I had to watch James Bond facing off with Oddjob at the end of Goldfinger to revive.

This guy has all the sleaze of Secret Agent Super Dragon but not as much personal appeal. And he lacks the proper post-kill puns. But I'll give him that his theme music does rival that of Super Dragon.
