Being from Illinois, what really cracks me up is when Mike says "Guys, this is so NOT Illinois" and "That's one of my favorite mountains in Illinois." Comedy gold!

Amazingly obscure Church of the Sub Genius reference in the short. I'm impressed. Impressed enough to give Slack.

One of the small handful of eps I never bothered to finish--along with Hamlet, Final Justice, and Track of the Moon Beast (yeah--Season 10 isn't my favorite)

Gonna give it another shot tonight--let's see what happens :)

So with the death of the stripper at the cabin while the other women were out looking for Gary, was the horror movie trope that says the sluttiest character is ALWAYS doomed born?

This movie makes a LOT more sense after reading the Wikipedia page:
"The film was originally meant to be about evil aliens, but the producers demanded script alterations in order to cash in on the success of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial by featuring a child and cute, lovable alien."
Assuredly, the title sequence features the original pre-Trumpy alien monster.

I'm always impressed when they avoid the easy, obvious jokes: You've got a character named "Atari" here...This episode COULD have been wall to wall video game jokes, but they limited themselves to one or two quips about Pong. A lesser show would have grabbed for the low hanging fruit, so to speak.

Okay. Granted--Betty is a stone cold, manipulative, gold-digging trollop. But her teacher's treatment of her is unsettling inappropriate, and would cost him his job nowadays.
I mean he basically told her, to her face: "You're a sweet piece of tail, but dumber than a bag of hammers"....JESUS! The harassment lawsuit that would result from a teacher talking to a student like that these days would bankrupt the school district!

So....where does the "2000" part of this mess fit in?
I'm more than halfway through this movie, and there's been NO reference whatsoever to the year 2000...matter of fact, nothing's been established regarding when this film takes place save for a vague sense that it's sometime after 1986 (the only year mentioned thus far)

Again, I'll answer my own question: The only reason they called this crap sandwich Escape 2000 is because Escape From New York was taken :P

I recognized a name in the credits, and decided to look it up on IMDB. Sure enough, that's THE Toni Basil in this film--Toni "Oh Mickey you're so fine" Basil...as a character named "Red". I had no clue she was that old! :)

It's not a good sign when the action in your movie is upstaged by a mural.
