Storyline

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 Meanwhile, the 'bots complain about Mike's out-of-date encyclopedia set.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.

Big McLargeHuge
6 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode definitely proved to have some of the funniest commentary. Honestly, how can you go wrong with Captain Santa Claus, Second-in-Command Sting, his daughter Debbie Reynolds, and a crew that wants to slit his throat? Not to mention that he brought aboard a chunk headed body builder who thinks driving a Lark at 3mph is an adrenaline filled rush.

The best riffs definitely came from all the different names for the chunk head. In fact, there are so many names for him now that I can't even remember what his real name is. Top 5 in the alternative names - 5) Crud Bonemeal, 4)Gristle McThornbody, 3)Bob Johnson (just because it's thrown in so casually), 2) Slab Bulkhead, and 1) Big McLargeHuge.

This movie more or less riffs on itself though, and not just because of the look-alikes mentioned previously. It's great because you can obviously tell how it ends with the laundry cleaner named guy sitting in a puddle before his eyes open. The sets were second rate too, especially in the terms of it being a futuristic space ship. I mean, who wouldn't want to build a space ship with concrete floors, brick walls, shattered glass windows, and enough pipes and railings to host an anti-gravity limbo contest?

It doesn't quite top it's predecessor, "Invasion of the Neptune Men," but it definitely stands on its own as being one of the all time best MST3K episodes of the later season.
