Mike and the Bots learn the dangers of not paying attention at railroad crossings in the short Last Clear Chance (1959). Later, they watch government agents use high-tech radar to track criminals on the black market in Radar Secret Service (1950). The guys stage Mike's 10-year high school reunion and, inspired by the short, Tom asks the golden question: "Why don't they look?!" Written by skillwithaquill

"Stupid peace!"
2 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode features a rather obscure film being riffed on as well as a short about railroad safety. Well, I'm finally back to reviewing episode of "Mystery Science Theater 3000"! Of course, I have literally seen so many there are few left, but they're still there. I really liked the part at the beginning with Mike and that escape plan. How would Gypsy even wear a bra? Does she have an actual body? Of course, I don't really see how any of these robots can wear underwear. It's great to see them mock the short. The part where they give Mike an authentic class reunion is fun as well. It does show some pretty good devotion to Mike.

I admit that a few of the jokes don't hold up that much, but this is still great as always. The one riff that really got me laughing was "I always forget, he goes to jail on Tuesdays!". The funniest joke with the short was probably, "The Dixon family were as happy and content as a group of a people could be" with the joke, "Then I showed up". I also especially liked, "Don't make the mistake these people made" with "Don't die". I love how they make fun of how confusing the film is with "Which one of us is the good guy?" and "I don't know. Who am I?". Call me easy to entertain but I liked, "The Melon Squad is in hot pursuit!". ***1/2
