Editorial Reviews

Dr. Ed Wainwright (Mission Impossible's Peter Graves), reporter Audrey Aimes and a deaf-mute gardener fight together to eradicate swarms of gigantic, radioactive locusts that are demolishing entire towns and cities in Illinois! Mike and the 'bots use this hilarious classic from the fifth season's Turkey Day to help illustrate the point that anyone can write a repetitive screenplay revolving around Peter Graves-including the SoL's own Crow!

In the late 1990s, I was drawn into the hilarious world of Mystery Science Theater 3000; a TV series orginally on Comedy Central and, eventually, moved to The Sci-Fi Channel (back in the day when its name was spelled right) that poked fun at the worst movies ever made by Hollywood. The idea of a group of people making fun of a movie while its playing out in front of you may sound strange to outsiders, but, after watching the show's feature film (riffing on the Universal classic This Island Earth), I was hooked.

The premise centers around Mike Nelson, a temp worker who is shot into space by the demented Dr. Forrester and his assistant, TV's Frank. Stuck on board a space ship called the Satellite of Love, the doctor's goal is to force Mike to watch countless bad movies in order to break his will and use him to enhance his world domination schemes. However, Mike has three things to counter Forrester's plan; a sharp sense of humor and two wise-cracking robots named Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot. Watching a bad movie can be a joy to behold or a utter pain, depending on your tolerance for these sorts of movies. Thankfully, the fast-paced humor of Mike and the 'bots make an already goofy movie like The Beginning of The End even more enjoyable.

The film was made by Bert I. Gordon, a b-movie director who's running theme is giant creatures; ranging from a bald man in a sarong to giant teenagers boogieing to 1960s music, and, with 1957's The Beginning of The End, we can now add giant grasshoppers to the list. The film stars Peggie Castle and Peter Graves as a female news reporter and a scientist who must find a way to stop an army of giant grasshoppers from destroying most of Illinois.

My personal choice as the best MST2K episode of all time. Hilarious from start to finish, you won't be disappointed.

If you know MST3K, you know that sometimes it's uproariously funny, sometimes it's painfully fun, and sometimes it's just painful. This one was on the funnier side (though not on par with legendary episodes like Pod People). The plot was follow-able, if painful but Mike and the gang made the journey to Chicago and the end of the world worth it. Recommended.

Sorry, had to throw out one of the classic lines from this great Peter Graves movie ;-) Join Mike with the bots on the SOL in one of my fave episodes. If you have never watched an MST episode, which I would find hard to believe, this would be one I would recommend to start. But then again, I have been accused of having strange humor :-)

The 1950's was full of ideas of what radiation would do to all sorts of critters. If you have never seen this movie you need to now. The special effects consisting of a picture of a building is hilarious. The quips are great. One of the better MST3K shows.

The worse the orignial movie; the better MSTK was. And this was a great one to work with. Burt I Gordon and really bad special effect grasshoppers make for all kinds of fun. Add Peter Graves and a host of others and you have a popcorn movi

This is one of our favorite Mystery Science Theaters because the special effects are classically bad. It is always fun to watch a popular star in such a bad choice for them.
