Terrorists try to take over San Francisco International while a rather dimwitted boy steals a plane to get his divorced parents' attention. Meanwhile, Mike moderates a political debate between Tom and Crow, which actually portrays a rather accurate depiction of modern day politics. Down in Deep 13, the Mads think of ways to remodel their lair as manly construction workers, which inspires Mike to demonstrate the classic slapstick 2x4 routine to the Bots with devastating results. Mike then decides to relieve some of the tension around the SOL the only way he can - by impersonating Steve Urkle. It works better than he expected and soon has Crow, Tom and Gypsy laughing so hard they can't breathe even if they were capable of it. Dr. Forrester and Frank find it just as hilarious. Mike's Urkle impersonation lasts for three movie breaks with non-stop laughter from everyone, and that includes cameos from Jan in the Pan, Huggy Bear and Rooster, Santa Claus, Nuveena, and Pitch the devil.

Better/badder than I thought it would be
22 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wasn't expecting this episode to be as good/bad as it was but was happily surprised that I decided to give it a viewing. I usually stick to the older black and white MST3K movies but this 1970's flick is quite a time capsule especially in light of the current security checks and what not of "modern" air travel. The movie is so bad/good in itself but some of the best laughs come when Mike is doing his Urkle impersonation and some classic MST3K "characters" show up to laugh along - Jan in a pan and Torgo were my favorites.

Seeing Dr. Forester and TV's Frank shirtless at the beginning was a bit disturbing, but funny none the less.

Give this episode of MST3K a try; I don't think you will be disappointed.
