Crow T. Robot: Say Mike, give the incredibly depraved attitude regarding women in today's movie, I knew you'd want me to make a short film for boys and young men teaching them how to treat the fairer sex, with a proper and healthy respect.

The best episode of MST3K ever
6 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well where do I begin on what was my opinion the best episode of MST3K? Mike and the guys were just so funny and this is where Mike finally came into his own after the departure of Joel. Servo and Crow were just awesome and just cracked me up no end, and had me on the floor laughing.

The jokes and gags were of this episode were described as brutal but in my opinion it served the movie right in fact Mike and the Bot's went a little too easy on what can only be described as a movie plane crash.

This was vintage MST3K at it's peak.

The worst movie that was ever made got what it deserved in this episode, proof that justice does exist.

Talk about a movie that was tailor made to be MST3K'd, this was it.
