Quotes

Dr. Forrester: Anyway, your film today is "Robot Monster". It's a classic film that was nominated for a Golden Turkey award for being one of the "fowlest" films ever! Hehe!
Dr. Lawrence Erhardt: See, to call this film wretched would just be a insult to the word wretched! It stars no-one! Oh, man, you won't believe this!

Pretty Weak Episode

Mystery Science Theater 3000: Robot Monster (1989)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

This episode of the series starts off with two RADAR MEN FROM THE MOON chapters and then we get to the main feature ROBOT MONSTER, the 1953 movie which is considered to be one of the worst ever made.

As I've said in what few episodes I've reviewed, I'm really not a fan of the series but I skip around and watch episodes with bad movies that I enjoy. I really thought this episode was really bad and it's certainly the worst that I've seen. The two chapter episodes aren't all that funny and there really aren't many laughs to be found. I was really letdown with the ROBOT MONSTER stuff because while I did laugh a few times there weren't enough to keep me fully entertained. What's worse is that there's actually a lot of time when no one is speaking.

Certainly not one of the best the show has to offer.
