Gosh, I love those bots!

And I love MST3K.

This is one of the finer Hodgson-era episodes.

The plot - what there is of it, is as cardboard as the sets and the acting (rim shot!).

It's a typical 50's-era space-opera, where there's a hero, and his 'first mate,' 'Winky' (more about him in a sec) along with the requisite 'space girl (wearing what looks to be a Lurex TIGHT sweater (for the older 'boys' in the audience who took their kids to this), skirt, gloves (?!?) and cape (!?!?!?).

Oh, yes, there's a(lways) a 'junior' rocket boy, and this one looks like a cheap Bobby (Hazel) Buntrock knock-off (sorry, Mr. Buntrock. R.I.P.).

All you need to know is the movie's terrible, but, Joel & the bots are in FINE form, and that's all that really matters.

One of my favourite Crowisms is from this film (I used it as this reviews title), and it sums up his ANNOYANCE with the script - or what there is of it.

Ah, yes - Winky, or as he says (when he pops up on the Hexfield View Screen - shhh: it's really Mike Nelson - who's nerdishly great) - his 'real' name is Winchester P. Thorendulik.

Winky says he got in the film cause he was friends with the director... and... oh, he's flying his 'invisible space ship' and took time out of his 'hot & savage' dating life with his 10 'girlfriends.'

THAT conversation alone left me doubled in laughter - especially when Joel & the bots tell Winky his signal's coming from 'Ladysmith, WI,' at which point, Winky goes into upset geek mode, whining, he's a 'real swinger' in his 'invisible spaceship.

This is one of the best from Joel's stint on MST3K. The whole crew is simply at the top of their game on this episode, and I really like the demoralizing they levy on the boy. It's also a good, if campy, movie. BTW, this series introduced many technological devices that you see in future sci-fi. Further, these serials came under attack for being too violent! Hahahaha!

An old time movie theater "B" series that is even worse than Flash Gordon. What could be better for the MST 3K guys to skewer. They did a great job (especially when the caught up with Winky - but I won't give away the secret)

I just want to thank Amazon Instant Video for saving these great shows, they were dropped from the other service, and I was so happy to see them here... These are all truly gems, a way to enjoy hokey old movies that will make you love them, and smile. :)

I don't want to date myself but I saw this when it originally came out in 1954 at 5 years old. I loved it then and I loved it now with my 5 grandchildren! The subtle comments where just corny enough to keep my grandkids laughing.

This episode is sweet. From the best period of Joel's tenure. Crash of the Moons was also outstanding. Both cheezy sci-fi's from the early fiftie's. They were appropriately all over the character Winky in this one. He was just askin' to be ripped on, amongst everything else. Gotta check it out. Another essential. (Mike made a brief but outstanding appearance impersonating Winky. He really got his lower jaw thing down. That was a scream.)

but this movie definitely is (and so is our comment!) The movie really is not that bad, considering when it was made, but it certainly lends itself to being quality MSTK riffing fodder. Winky is by far the best character!

I just love cheesy old sci-fi. This is one of my favorites from Mystery Science Theater.
If you love bad special effects and ridiculous dialogue, you're sure to laugh at this crazy flick. If you like this one, look for Crash of the Moons for more fun with the same cast of characters.
