"Don't shoot my doppelganger!"
3 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow, this is one of the greatest episode of "Mystery Science Theater 3000" ever made for me. In the grand scheme, I prefer Mike over Joel. This is still absolutely wonderful as it has some of the best jokes that the show has ever put out! I even really like the invention exchange with TV's Frank used as an actual battery. It's good they make fun of all the accusations of backmasking in songs. Just see how it would really work out intentionally. This also came with a short film about grooming, which had tons of great stuff too. My favorite riff would be when it showed the bits of skin falling off with them saying, "Wa-hoo! Whee!". So classic.

I also love the segments out of the theater, especially the one with Crow being melted into gold. That's just such a funny looking image! I thought they'd talk more about Lassie, seeing as how she's one of the most famous characters to ever appear in a movie featured. How had I not heard of this film before? Well, I was never into "Lassie" that much. I think the joke that had me laughing the most was when he said, "Did you know he's never once cried?" with the riff, "Just hit him with a class ring". It's even kind of hard why I find some of this stuff so funny. It just makes me laugh.

There are simply too many hilarious lines to even remember, but I try to say my favorites. "Okay, okay, you get the body, but I get the gold!". "Die outside now!". "Kid, you got a French horn in your chest". "Gun's turned into a Bomb pop!". "Oh, they had Shep shaved and that's all that's left!". I finally found out what snausages were. ****
