As MST3k is sort a show within a show within a movie format, I like to review each part of the episode as a good or bad part can save or ruin the entire episode.

The Movie: With his billion bubble machine and death ray, Ro-Man the Robot Monster has killed all humans except for a family of six. The only reason the family has survived is the father created a serum that saves them from the death ray. And I do mean "the only reason" because the family acts either like children or complete idiots throughout the movie. Imagine the dumbest person in the typical horror film and you get the idea (you know - the one that checks the killer's body after they shot him just once - just to make sure the killer is really dead)). Which leads to a big problem: Ro-Man is too cheesy to root for and the family is too stupid to root for. So what is left is a slow moving movie with terrible special effects where you have no vested interest.

Host Segments: None of them are very good until the last segment. The last segment is hilarious as Joel and the bots discuss the more obvious plot holes in the movie (to mention them all would have taken too much time). The reaction of Dr. Forrester is priceless.

Riffs: A little bit more riffs that the usual Season I episode - and some of them were funny. Not a bad outing but not great either.

Overall: An uninteresting bad movie coupled with some uninteresting segments and some good riffs. You would think a guy walking around in a gorilla suit would have resulted in a classic episode - but alas that is not the case. This episode is watchable but not one of the better MST3k episodes.

Other: There are two shorts of the continuing adventures of Captain Cody. I actually liked the previous episodes when they were in space.

Good, solid, wholesome, bear-like, alien fun. I didn't like the other movies before it however, but this is around the time when MST3K was starting off and didn't have the formula quite down yet

One of my favorite MST3Ks. Why it's not called Gorilla Alien, I have no idea.
