Storyline

Meanwhile, the SOL is just driving about time and space until Mike utters the words "Lost in Space," which encourages Tom and Crow to act out dialogue inspired from the TV show. When Mike botches a parallel parking job with the Widowmaker, he and Pearl exchange an unlikely light hearted conversation into why she's so evil while Tom hogs the TV remote control on the Satellite. Later, in an effort to help Mike's lot in life, Crow uses their time machine to go back to Wisconsin in 1995 where Mike is working at a cheese factory and talk him out of getting into temp work later on. Mike's band becomes his all consuming desire and Crow goes back to the present to find Eddy, Mike's abusive older brother who fills Crow into Mike's new fate, which isn't pretty at all.

Probably the Best Sci-Fi Channel Episode
26 April 2013 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Whenever my wife and I sit down to enjoy an episode of MST3K, we always end up watching "Time Chasers." In short, this movie itself wasn't that bad. It had a plot, it was creative, and the filmmakers really, really tried to make a decent, low-budget science fiction movie. And for those reasons, it keeps the MST3K episode moving along at an enjoyable pace. Sometimes the movies Mike and the Bots would riff were so boring or bad, it took away from the humor of the show. This is NOT the case with "Time Chasers." Everything in this episode is funny. Pearl and Mike having a heart-to-heart, Crow traveling back to the 1980s to stop Mike from ever ending up on the SOL... it's all very funny. And Mike's evil brother is probably the best side character that Mike ever played. "Hey! This little pencil-neck just say our reality sucks?!" CLASSIC.

This is my favorite MST3K episode. Enjoy it!!
