Storyline

A whiny Aztec superhero battles Donald Pleasance because he wants his mask back. Meanwhile, Tom battles Short Man's disease by inserting lifts in his hover skirt and acting like a tough guy. Pearl announces her annual Castle Forrester Ball in which every in the world is invited, but no one comes except Ortega, and only because Observer invites him over to watch Sliders in his room. Inspired by the movie, Mike contacts the Nanites to see if he can get the dry look, but gets Shelli because no one else is available. She takes his request a little too seriously. The Bots then declare Mike to be the great Coatimundi Man but all Mike wants is to get the last of the cold sesame noodles. The Bots move on then to use their genuine magic Aztec mask to take control of folk singer Roger Whitaker because they didn't think anyone else was worth controlling. By the end of the movie, Crow's finally had enough of the whole deal and submits his resignation to Mike and then decides to visit the SOL ... Written by Titus Yorick

Pumaman
13 May 2017 | by tiggibarfieldSee all my reviews

Saw this on movie theatre 3000. It was low budget but was so funny with dodgy camera shots and tom and crooooows humour making it a laugh a minute.

Not sure if it was meant to be taken seriously but I needed a good laugh and would watch it again. Without the added humour it would be less funny from not having the aside comments.
