As MST3k is sort of a show within a show within a movie concept, I think it is better to look at the individual parts of the episode to determine if the episode works as a whole.

The Movie: Ah yes a Roger Corman sci-fi film. In this one, the first astronaut to enter and return from space is found dead upon reentry but yet his body is still functioning. A very small team of scientists, a doctor, and a photographer finds themselves isolated and under attack from external and internal forces. Yes this is a B-movie but it does have a good plot and decent enough acting and I found it very watchable (although the penny-pinching measures do show as half of the movie takes place in one room).

Riffs: Two things amazed me about this episode's riffing. The first is yes Mike and the bots clearly shred the obvious cheesy parts of the film - but they also picked up on some subtle gaps in logic that I don't think a normal person would have seen. The second one is this - have you ever watched a SNL skit where they take a funny concept but then keep repeating it for five minutes until it is becomes boring and annoying. Like a rabid dog, the SOL crew attacks 5 points of this film, sinks their teeth into them, and never lets go. But their jokes became funnier as they continued to mock these 5 points. In fact by the end, I found myself joining in (yes I know I was talking to the TV - but hey I was having fun!)

Host Segments: Dr. Forrester's mom Pearl moves in full time much to the Dr's chagrin. The Dr. and Pearl segments are ok but I enjoyed the SOL crew ones much better. Not a bad outing.

Other: We already have a good movie with some of the wittiest and funniest riffing ever shown on MST3k.

And as a hard core MSTie I don't say that lightly, but I put this one right up there with Werewolf and Manos in terms of sheer hilarity. A stinker from the Corman factory that actually had a glimmer of a good idea at its core, it's so totally under cut by cheap sets, sketchy acting, poor choices, wooden dialog, and overall ridiculousness that I sort of fell in love with it. Basically, it's about a male astronaut impregnated by an alien that appears to be a burnt parrot costume (recycled from the Corman film "Teenage Caveman, also a MST3K film). The MST3K guys pair it with a thoroughly ridiculous short, also one of their best ones, titled "Once Upon A Honeymoon". Apparently it's selling phones to everyone, but it's actually difficult to tell what the short is selling besides cheesy musical numbers and a sort of arch campness that Paul Lynde would eventually carry to its apotheosis. So, in summary - so very funny. I've seen this episode dozens of times, and it still makes me laugh. Whenever I have a really bad day, it cheers me right back up. So, in the immortal words of one of the various Steves at NASA, "A wounded animal that large isn't good." (But this episode is.)

An absolutely ludicrous movie with the MST3Kcrew riffing in top form; it has rapidly become one of my top ten. This is a good candidate to introduce someone to MST3K, as the movie is okay (if implausible and over-acted from start to finish) and the humor is universal.

FWIW, "I Accuse my Parent" is the best candidate for a neophyte.
