I guess I'm alone on this, but I just don't find the Pearl character all that funny, and the opening segment just drags. Nothing can top the invention exchanges with Joel, Forrester and TV's Frank.

They got the right guy to play the Aztecian messenger but I don't see the blond girl deciphering ancient inscriptions.

Man, that dude gives sidekicks a bad name. He was probably never a sidekick in real life because he could never get past the assault portion of his interactions with the cool guys. The sad part of this movie is when you know his execution is not going to take place.

I would have preferred more backstory on Angelo, especially the source of his mysterious power over his employers. That is the movie they should have made. All the servants I have know who were caught ogling the Missus of the house were horsewhipped and dumped in the swamp. Yet Angelo is permitted to lurk about, as if she were titillated by the idea of a 50's-style sex maniac serving the family Sunday dinner.

Many years ago, having seen this episode many years before, I was busy reading my way through the SF section of my local library when I came across a gem of a novel called Star Wolf by Edmond Hamilton. As I was reading it, I got a strange sense of deja vu. Turns out, the series this movie was made from was called Star Wolf, and was based on these novels. I call this Syncronerdcity.

What happened to the special effects guy on this movie? Was he in such a state of despair he could only propel The Skull bocci-ball like in the Horrifying Scene?

"Your methods have not always been -- and I use this term loosely -- orthodox."

I keep rolling this line over in my mind, and it just baffles me. He's loosely using a term to express what he does not think his methods were? So his methods were only "loosely" not orthodox?

A man is crossing the lawn in shorts, carrying rope and a shovel. Naturally, the first question anyone would ask is, "Are you going swimming?"

Eureka! I've made the linkage. Throw your minds back to the gym teacher who tortured George "Cants-stanzya" Constanza in the library episode. The guy with teeth "like baked beans" and was now sleeping in piles of garbage. If that isn't Joe Don I'll chug six Pabst Blue Ribbons that been sitting in the trunk of that old Chevy out back by the hot tub.

I'd like to hook up Torgo with my sister-in-law. They share that same stunned sense of wonderment at ordinary human interaction. And, oddly enough, she was born with her arms on backwards (but you ought to see her set up kill shots in volleyball with her elbows -- extroidinary). Their first embrace would be worth the film, I tell you what

On the other hand, the Outer Spacians are living on lobster and lots of it. Kind of a shrewd move, feeding the masses enormous masses of sweet Gorgon meat and drawn butter.

This flick is endlessly weird but i happened to come across the diary of the key grip on the film, Andrew V. Soong, while doing research at the Priscilla Ptomkin Library in Bluffville, Mo.. Apparently Mr. Soong had moved to LA and was part of a crew painting the apartment of the film's female lead, Trisha Faloon. He apparently developed a lifelong fascination with her career and in the end, murdered Ms. Faloon on the eve of her wedding in 1989. In his diary he relates the story of being hired by the director as key grip upon the recommendation of Ms. Faloon even though he had no experience in movie making. In fact, the character of Wild Bill was fashioned and played by another member of the painting crew, Willie Harbuncle, who had a great uncle who had played concertina in the Harry Speck Jug Band during the mid-1930s. Willie was beaten to death in 1993 after his audition at the Pineview Terrace and Bowl-a-Rama was interrupted by hecklers from the Daisy Chain Bakery Bowling Team. Anywho, the continuity problems one finds in "Riding With Death," are explained in the diary by the persistent interference of the wife of the executive producer, Tilly Schmully. Mrs. Schmully had recently gained her release from the Sonoma Restorative Center for the Greatly Puzzled and was now determined to finally begin her career as a General Annoyance. Her contrary attitude resulted in the addition of the stock racing scenes and the expansion of the script from a story of transporting a dangerous explosive to the more involved plotting revolving around the enmity of the head of Intersect towards Robert Denby. Rumors of a romantic link between Mrs. Faloon and Wild Bill are confirmed by the diary entries. These two then were able to have themselves appointed as supervisors of the final edit.
