Mike and the 'bots learn the 80s were worse than they thought as they endure the putrid sci-fi epic, Space Mutiny (1988), which features bad continuity, ludicrous attempts at futuristic sets, a dull-witted blonde hunk, a Santa Claus lookalike with an elderly-looking "daughter," mystical women doing interpretive dances, Ed Grimley's doppelganger and more. Meanwhile, the 'bots complain about Mike's out-of-date encyclopedia set. Pearl and the others are trapped in a dungeon in Ancient Rome. The 'bots have a space battle in a couple of escape pods. Crow believes he's a Bellerian, i.e. a member of the race of women depicted in the movie. Servo constructs railings everywhere on the ship. Written by J. Spurlin

Mike Nelson: Hey, everyone, welcome to the Satellite of Love. You know, since we are stuck in orbit over Ancient Rome, I thought it might be a good time to teach the 'bots a little something about history.

When the crew of the Satellite of Love zero in on some poor schmuck to pick on, it's the stuff of legend. The Joe Don Baker thrashing in "Mitchell" was gold, baby! And in the case of "Space Mutiny", it works like gangbusters. This time, it's sturdy Reb Brown. Just look at some of the names they throw at him:

Fridge LargeMeat; Splint Chesthair; Brick Hardmeat; Bolt Van der Huge; Thick McRunfast; Blast Hardcheese

And my personal favorite: Dirk Hardpec!

It's one after another with these, and they're all timed perfectly for maximum laugh value. Something so silly, but so damn good. As for the movie itself, oh man is it bad. Poor production values (stolen Galactica footage!), awful dialogue and all of the Commodore 64 graphics of a top Hollywood picture. It'd still be bad even if it had a budget. the movie's all kinds of terrible, but it makes for a top-shelf MST3K episode.

No, scratch that. It's my favorite.
