Episode cast overview:
Joel Hodgson ...
J. Elvis Weinstein ...
Tom Servo / Dr. Laurence Erhardt (as Josh Weinstein)
Jim Mallon ...


Joel and the 'bots first endure "Battle in the Stratosphere": chapter nine of Radar Men from the Moon (1952). Next is Robot Holocaust (1986), a futuristic epic that seems to have done a lot of its filming in Central Park. A sexy villainess who talks like Elmer Fudd, a robot that acts like Don Knotts and a villain who seems to have escaped from a boiling pot at Red Lobster are the painful features of this dismal sci-fi epic. Meanwhile, Joel invents a device for smokers who enjoy monster truck rallies. Dr. Forrester creates a ski mask that has facial expressions. Crow and Servo demand that Joel do his disappearing coin trick, his duck face and a hand stand. Cambot's sitcom simulator goes awry. Joel and Crow object to Servo's fur costumes. Joel asks the viewers to send in their names for the Avocado Man in the film. Written by J. Spurlin

There are two evil overlord scientists that are sending me horrendous films, but I can handle it because I'm a Hu-Man!
