A scientist's experiment to project things with light goes horribly wrong and he seeks revenge against the ones who sabotaged him in the first place. Meanwhile, the SOL crew is dragged back through a wormhole and find themselves back in their old time period complete with Ethan Hawke movies. Pearl and her minions are drawn to an abandoned castle where Pearl finds evidence that she's returned home to Castle Forrester (that and the ability to play the piano at will). Inspired by the device in the movie, Crow and Tom "project" significant objects belonging to Mike but it becomes evident to him that their procedure isn't quite what they said it is. Then, based on the popularity of the scientists in the movie, Mike convinces Prof. Lembach to stick around while Pearl looks through an old family diary where she discovers her family has always been involved with conducting weird experiments.

A favorite 'Mike episode'...
18 January 2015 | by (Sequim, WA) – See all my reviews

Only MST3K's hilarious cremation of "Manos, the Hands of Fate" has ever induced more spasms of nearly-uncontrollable laughter in me, as this bottom-of-the-barrel trifle is an all-too-English-for-its-own-good rip-off of the transportation of matter over distance concept(think..."The Fly"). It's pathetic in its original form, but ripe for plucking by Mike and the Bots, who lay this turkey to waste with side-splitting results. If you have ever thought the English were boring, stuffy and bland (And who hasn't, at one time or another?), then you're in for a real treat, here. There are way more than the average number of excellent riffs to savor. Rejoice in the wonder that is MST3K!
