"Your pants are on fire"
8 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was an earlier episode of "Mystery Science Theater 3000". It wasn't really until TV's Frank became a character that the show really started getting good. I actually still thought this was a great episode. I probably just love the show that much. We actually got to see Gypsy in the theater for the first time! I really like those gags they do where everything is coming out of her mouth. Yeah, it's cheap, but it's good for a quick visual laugh. She even manages to get another Tom Servo out of her mouth!

The actual movie didn't have as many good riffs as later episodes, but I still found lots of hilarious lines. One of my favorites was, "Hey, I found him! He's hiding behind those credits!". There were some great exchanges here too like "I didn't know she could sing" and "I still don't know if she can sing". I also loved, "Between you and the Moon..." with "I can't tell which is which". The bits with the doctor were great especially with, "I've got some bad news for you" followed by, "I'm not a real doctor". ***1/2
