They were four total strangers, with nothing in common, except themselves.
A space drama, a sword and sandals epic, a 50s spy film and a TV pilot about an airport. Before the experiment was over, they broke the rules and made us cringe in ways we never dreamed possible. In this 32nd collection of episodes from the cult comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000, Joel, Mike, Tom Servo and Crow spend detention aboard the Satellite of Love with a breakfast club of cheesy movies. To our everlasting good fortune, though, they endure the punishment by delivering a steady stream of wisecracks, and its definitely some kind of wonderful.
Dear Dr. Forrester, you see these movies as you want to see them, in simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what our space captives found out is that each one of them has bad acting, a sloppy script, questionable direction and some music. We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice eight hours of our time for whatever it was we did wrong. Thank you, we had a blast.
Radar Secret Service
San Francisco International

Hercules: The dubbing is, of course, pretty bad. Storyline? Well, I guess there is one - if by storyline they mean having Mr. Reeves run around flexing his muscles. The riffing and skits, of course are first class.
Radar Secret Service: You just have to watch it to believe it. I watched it a couple of times and am gobsmacked how people could have thought this was a good idea. This is one that really didn't need the riffing to be hilarious - unintentionally of course. But the SOL crew make it even funnier.
San Francisco International: I was laughing just looking at the fashion. And the set for the inside of the jets - we could only wish they were that big with that much leg room. At least we know where they got the idea for the Airplane comedies.
Watch these if you dare! Be prepared to be bowled from laughing.
I cannot wait for the next set to come out! Keep up the great work, SHOUT!
As Mike Nelson points out about "Radar Secret Service" (1950), the film spends far too much time dealing with radar, and not nearly enough time with the secret agents. In fact, the whole movie is like an expanded short subject that could have been called "Radar Is Your Friend." The only noteworthy performances come from Adele Jergens in the blonde bombshell role, and Sid Melton as the comic relief. An interesting bonus feature is a travelogue with Frank Conniff and Trace Beaulieu in England, being interviewed by Bunny Galore, British horror movie host, and Queen of the cult movies. (Although, going by her name and listening to her voice, I suspect that Bunny is a Drag Queen. Not that there’s anything wrong with that!) Last and least is the made-for-TV movie pilot "San Francisco International" (1970). Pernell Roberts stars as the head of airport security. Tab Hunter chews the scenery as a criminal briefly disguised as a priest. The plot involves a gang of criminals holding people at gunpoint, as part of a plan to steal a shipment of millions of dollars from Alaska (cold, hard cash). There's also a subplot about an annoying kid whose parents (Van Johnson and Nancy Malone) are going to get divorced. The kid steals a small airplane and somehow manages to fly it. Pernell Roberts has to fly next to the kid, to talk him down safely. And yes, we can all agree that David Hartman is a goofy-looking guy. The host segments mostly involve Mike Nelson impersonating Steve Urkel, with everybody laughing hysterically at everything he says. That strange episode closes out this mixed bag of MST3K movies.
