What the heck? What happened to Mystery Science Theater 2000? I'm in another timeline! Rod Sterling, help me!!! I haven't watched this in years but after scanning several episodes, I can't find any with the VW Van flying through space. Is it in the other timeline too?

Mullets! Mullets Everywhere! XD
And rarely I'd see movies with no women in it like traditional Japanese theater. They should have done Crow's woman conspiracy sketch in this one. XD
Trixie! Stand somewhere in the movie so at least they have one stand-in woman.
"Why? This is the real deal chick flick. Nothing but a bunch of hairy stinking dudes being dudes and one flat girl."
I think that one is a boy.
"Whatever."

Believe it or not, William Conrad was first known for his gravelly baritone reading-voice--not his stupendous waist-line: he was Matt Dillon on the original radio program 'Gunsmoke'. When the franchise moved to TV, Conrad was done; Matt Dillon was to be tall and lean on TV (as he was in the 'mind's eye' descriptions on radio) *and* have an instantly-familiar resonant baritone acting-voice. I heard they asked Buddy Ebsen and Peter Graves (both 6'5"); Ebsen didn't have a 'Matt Dillon' voice, and Graves was busy making giant-bug movies(!). Graves suggested they ask his brother *James Arness* (T. Servo: "Hulking, expressionless pseudo-cowboy James Arness...tonight, on 'Biography'..."). William Conrad took a hiatus after the radio show, and finished getting into shape to return to drama in such Quinn Martin productions as 'Cannon' and 'Jake and the Fat Man'. Old friend Buddy Ebsen eventually got to be a QM private eye, himself, as a Retirement Gig.
UH-OH! The refrigerator just went off!!!

Largo's device makes no sense at all.

It uses magnetic waves. Okay, sure. Those exist. And they can have a whole spectrum of properties depending on frequency. An EMP can even disrupt microchips (which was actually the plot of at least one Bond villain). But this thing...

* It somehow causes any metallic device, no matter how simple, to cease functioning. This includes a pistol, which is basically just a tube with explosives in it, set off by a spring mechanism. (Luckily, the good guys somehow have a battalion of trained archers stationed in Munich, ready at a moment's notice to grab bow & quiver and jump on horseback, and they have no problem being commandeered by a woman who, up until that very day, was an enemy agent.)

* Despite using magnets to somehow disable every metallic device in the area, none of those devices are in any other way affected. They're not magnetized, they don't spark... they just stop working.

* And yet the electric generator which is powering the device still works. As do the harpoon guns.

* Somehow, this thing is supposed to help him take over the world? What's the range on it? Do they even say? Seems like he's basically just disabled the weapons and equipment of his own base of operations and the surrounding territory. There's no way it would work worldwide. And even if it did, I don't see how that helps him. Other people have bows and arrows, too, their armies vastly outnumber your forces, and you can't exactly rule the world if you've shut down communications and transportation.

I just don't get it. This is basically just the same plot as It Conquered The Earth, only less plausible.

Mike singing "I'll Be Home for Christmas" to himself in the last host segment breaks my heart a little.

I just discovered a heretofore un-noticed 3-timer in Experiments: Adolpho Celi (from Diabolik and 007/007). Anybody else noticed his 3rd MST3k appearance?

So correct me if I'm wrong. I'm no chemist but isn't the ocean FULL of sodium? A.K.A. "Salt Water"?... These monsters explode when they come in contact with pure sodium. But they came from the ocean. Not a fresh water lake. How did they go so long without sodium bothering them in the least?!....
I mean... Really....
