Joe Don Baker, clad in stereotypical cowboy garb tracks down an Italian mobster on the island of Malta. Meanwhile, Tom's dissatisfaction with the Yes song "Owner of a Lonely Heart" leads to the question of how it stacks up against everything else in the world. In Castle Forrester, Pearl tries to promote a loose work environment to increase productivity but her whimsy only makes the SOL feel sad and achy. The lack of continuity in the first portion of the movie resorts in the Bots complaining to Pearl while Mike demonstrates their point by tripping uncontrollably. Goosio then decides to visit the SOL as a good will ambassador but the Bots hate cute with a vengeance. Crow later presents his report on the island of Malta, which starts with basic facts and leads to a hatred fueled rant about how much Crow hates Maltese men.

Did You Know?


This episode is notable for the relentless mocking of Joe Don Baker, particularly regarding his weight and hygiene. The reason why the mockery directed at him was so merciless was due to Baker's hostile reaction to MST3K's treatment of his film Mitchell (1975) during a previous episode. The skewering of this film was the writers' revenge against him. See more »

Mike and the bots have their next movie Final Justice the movie to sound unoriginal is crap quite clearly the worst movie I've seen them take off so far (bear in mind I've only seen 4 episodes and the movie none of them the Manos episode). Mike going for an escape pod was a smart move after watching crap like Soultaker but there were no escape pods.

this in my opinion had it's moments like the robots destroying a wooden duck calling itself Goosio and Crow insulting Maltese men that is worth the watch of this episode despite some of the crap movie involved (I won't survive the Manos episode would I). I love this show now it's one of the best it's commentary over a piece of crap movie rather than just listing the worst.
