My mind would have gotten x'd from the world had this not appeared on "MST3K"., 9 July 2006
Author: Lee Eisenberg ( from Portland, Oregon, USA

After a man classified by Mike, Servo and Crow as "Elmer Fudd" makes a long, boring speech, we get treated to a preachy look at the dangers of the road as a guardian angel defends his recently deceased client before a judge who looks like Boris Karloff on depressants. If you just watch "X Marks the Spot" in its original form, you'll wish that a car could run you over. But the "MST3K" version is perfectly enjoyable. When the people who made this drudgery first made it, they probably never imagined that a certain robot would relate it to Mick Jagger.

All in all, how cruel of Dr. Forrester to make Mike, Servo and Crow watch this swill.
