MST3KInfo actually provides a bit of context for the Calypso song at the end: in 1956, Harry Belafonte scored a huge hit with his song "Banana Boat". It was popular because it was upbeat and fun and different and Belafonte was a very charming singer. Problem was, music distributors misread the room and caused a brief "Calypso Boom" for a few months before it petered out.

As silly as this is, I can't help but feel like the "United Worlds" sounds like a predecessor to the "United Federation of Planets" from Star Trek...

All right, so they're running an experiment to see if they can revive a dead guy... and they use the body of a convicted killer with a chip on his shoulder. Does anyone else have a problem with this? Did I miss something?

I just figured it out: the Eye Creatures remind me of the "grunt" monsters from "Amnesia: the Dark Descent".

...Actually, for a 1950s TV show, the actual crash of the moons looked pretty damn decent.

New headcanon for Timmy's fate: Dr. Forrester came back after the credits with a mad-science bazooka or something and blasted the bejeebers out of him.

I think I'll file this one under "Might make for a decent film if they gave it a better budget, fleshed out the characters, and got some actors who gave a damn".

Is it just me, or is every Hercules movie about Hercules being easily bamboozled by a beautiful (but evil) queen and then taking a nap?

Does this feel like the monsters should have been handed over to Ray Harryhausen to anyone else?

Yes, this is what "Cowboys and Aliens" was lacking: SANDSTORMS.

The "waters of forgetfulness"... there's a guy at work who brings in a water bottle of that stuff every day. At least he says it's water, but he's not fooling anyone, we can all smell it.
