Does anyone know how they rigged up Servo to shoot ping pong balls into the air? Maybe some kind of a launcher? But they'd have to have a lot of balls loaded in at once given how quickly he fires them off once he gets going.

612 - The Starfighters - 5 months ago

Sorry. Couldn't make it past 30:00. I don't think this can even be classed as a movie - it's just a badly made Air Force recruiting film made of stock footage and badly acted filler. I admit I was mesmerized by the mid-air refueling sequences (thanks to the boys' double entendres )

Was this the first Hi Keeba riff? (At about 15 min. in). For such a standard, it's strange that it would first show up at the end of Season 2.


So let me get this straight...

407 - The Killer Shrews - over 1 year ago

The problem is the growing threat of overpopulation. The doc's solution is to slow down human metabolism so we consume fewer resources. (Really, this would only affect food consumption.) Put aside for the moment that he can do so without reducing activity level. (Which is either a direct self-contradiction or what he really means is that he's increasing efficiency.) The side effects of his plan are, he tells us, twofold. First, humans will be half their present size. (Which means the next step of his plan will be to convince the entire human race to choose to have dwarf children.) The second is that the human lifespan will be doubled. (Er, doc? I thought the point of this exercise was to address overpopulation. You don't see any problem...? No? Okay, then...) His method for bringing on this massive change in biology is breeding. (Which, in the case of humans, means eugenics. So maybe, instead of a species-wide breeding program, it would be simpler and easier to just convince the entire human race to limit themselves to two children per couple?) He's chosen shrews as his test subjects because their two-week life cycle allows him to rapidly advance his breeding program. (The nine months he's been at this translates into roughly 18 generations, then? If you're so worried about the looming threat, maybe you should try for a solution that won't take centuries to implement?) Unfortunately, in the course of his experiments to make animals smaller and less hungry (which he says have been successful) , he somehow produced a generation of mutants that grew to 20 times the size of their parents (how does that work?) while remaining just as ravenous as the creatures he started out with in the first place. Also, they're immune to poison. In fact, they can drink it up, store it in their saliva glands (which were never designed to do any such thing), and keep it in their mouths for days without ever running out. A poison, mind you, which is so deadly that a mere scratch will kill an adult human in about a minute. Oh, and also, despite the whole point being to reduce their metabolism, they're no longer nocturnal, and will hunt night and day even as they starve to death. But, while they will turn upon each other, they'll only do so as an absolute last resort, which means that they'll first hunt down the last remaining food on the island, and not even bother going after the corpses of their own, which said food has killed.

Is that about right? Did I miss anything? No wonder the spineless ex-fiancée drank so much.

Wow, sudden downer ending, and all because the girl kinda acted rather, well, silly.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen; children of all ages----this is Petey's debut (as well as Coleman's), albeit they hadn't started calling him by name yet. Francis, interestingly, lays out in this stunning first effort all his future themes: look for shooting from planes, greasy, ill-lit interiors, coffee real and implied, and pixie-cut women meeting violent ends.
