So, was Apollonia's friend behind some insider trading or something? Because when things start going wrong she calls someone on her wristwatch, then it cuts to the fat guy at a meeting where people are saying that stocks of their company have started to drop.

Once again, the annoying-as-hell Bobo brings up his obsession with songs from Asia. I would've preferred some Dr Erhardt at this point. Give Bobo a lobotomy then make him shut the hell up.

I remember someone on You Tube said that aging nun in the beginning looks like a Bajorian Security on Deep Space Nine. To me she looks like Odo's mother. XD
Trixie: "Funky...Odo is right behind you. He's the lamp."
What? Is this because I was doing business with Quark about holodeck programs is it?
Odo: "No I suspect that you work for the Tal Shiar. Now where's that hold out weapon on your person?"
I have no idea what you're talk..." A Romulan disrupter pistol falls out of my shirt pocket*
Odo: "Come with me, agent, and we can clear this up with your government."
I was set up by Trixie Tang here. She looks more Romulan than me. She is part Romulan!
Trixie: "Suckers."

There's actually kind of a lot to unpackage in this movie, if you give them a lot of credit and ignore stupid plot holes.

The doctor/technico who lost his brain (hooray for socks guy) has been lost in the HX361and I think is actually the other Fingal. He has no physical body (thus he mirrors Fingal's) and he is trying to help him escape. I see his little pervert buddy as a construct of his from Fingal's fantasy, just a program he has to make contact with the user.
HFS guy probably hates the Fat Man because he's probably dealt with these situations before and offed a couple of people lost in the HX361. That Gondol dude at the shareholders meeting warns the Fat man and mentions it is not "under normal circumstances" ie he's done it before.

The Fatman is using the HX361 to murder people in cyberspace and HFS guy caught on to it and was sent to do this risky operation (he was going to be cloned I think?) he was never supposed to survive. He never caught on that he was still alive because he is literally faceless in the HX361 to him (Fat man always calls him Rick and knows he's not Fingal at the end "we'll bluff him"). I think HFS guy thought Fingal had the best chance to break the cycle and sacrificed himself.
Thoughts?

Had I read a description of this film when PBS aired it, I probably would have sat down to watch it. A well known actor, futuristic, sci-fi theme; or maybe this is my segway into admitting I saw "Battlefield Earth" with John Travolta.....in the theater......a couple nights after it opened!

Minor, minor trivia.....the opening theme to Public Pearl Television is the theme music for the Mystery Science Theater Hour, the trimmed down version of mst3k used by idiot tv stations who didn't want to set aside 2 hours for the syndicated episodes.

I freaking LOVE this movie... Not that I'm saying it's a good movie, oh gods no, but it's just so endearing how HARD they'er trying to tell a decent... or even coherent story, how desperately they want to set the story in a new and creative world, and how utterly, UTTERLY they fail at it. And for that it holds a special place in my heart.

This is one of the most bizarre episodes ever. The Casablanca flashes, futuristic comedic attempts and horrific script and casting make this film totally repulsive, which of course opens up the riffing opportunities for the gang to new heights. Classic funny!

I usually enjoy MST3K in a small window in the corner of my screen while I work so sometimes I miss plot details. But I have seen this one with full attention and it is utter nonsense! Yet, still better than Inception :)

I wish this movie could be remade with better talent behind the camera (and in front since the one good actor in this is gone) because really if the world was fleshed out more it would be a great movie, if they explained jack shit about the feuding corporations and how and why Jamila was giving secrets away to the competing corporation. There is so much wasted potential here, but I guess if the potential had been realized we'd have lost out on a great mst3k episode.

You know, all things being equal, the Peter Lorre impersonator is actually dead on. And the corporate chairman isn't bad if you realize he's a Charles Laughton proxy.

This is a better movie to watch after viewing a second time. Much better than dreck like Time Chasers, but then so is a fourth grade production of Raisin in the Sun....

Okay they are clearly holding this telethon thing in the castle which they haven't got to yet, and the first part of the next episode has them coming out of the worm hole back to normal present time. So where and when did they hold this thing? Pocket dimension? Limbo? A back room on the Tardis?

Or was this a special episode deal like some of the thanksgiving ones? Normaly they do continuity better, and I know they were riffing on the fact PBS made the movie and all, but come on they had Ortega there crying out loud.

Okay so. I've seen this film a few times and I think I have a handle on what's going on. There are two like SUPER big companies in this world, Novicorp and Lexicorp. Fingal works for Novicorp, and when his body goes missing after his doppling, Lexicorp gets a hold of that information and releases it. Novicorp's stock nosedives really hard, so the Fat Man is forced to put resources into getting Fingal back/make sure he doesn't hack their Novicorp-y main frame stuff. That's about as far as I got before I just started screaming.
