Mike and the 'bots learn the 80s were worse than they thought as they endure the putrid sci-fi epic, Space Mutiny (1988), which features bad continuity, ludicrous attempts at futuristic sets, a dull-witted blonde hunk, a Santa Claus lookalike with an elderly-looking "daughter," mystical women doing interpretive dances, Ed Grimley's doppelganger and more. Meanwhile, the 'bots complain about Mike's out-of-date encyclopedia set. Pearl and the others are trapped in a dungeon in Ancient Rome. The 'bots have a space battle in a couple of escape pods. Crow believes he's a Bellerian, i.e. a member of the race of women depicted in the movie. Servo constructs railings everywhere on the ship. Written by J. Spurlin

Mike Nelson: Hey, everyone, welcome to the Satellite of Love. You know, since we are stuck in orbit over Ancient Rome, I thought it might be a good time to teach the 'bots a little something about history.

Space Crash
7 June 2016 | by hellraiser7See all my reviews

This is my second favorite episode of the show to me this had just the most laughs for me. The film is one of the worst space operas I've ever seen, I wouldn't go so far as to even call it a space opera, but a film making a poor attempt at being one.

The production value is just terrible, the amateur films from "Dead Gentlemen/Zombie Orphus" look ten times better than this film because operating on a shoestring budget they at least put in effort. This film look like hardly any effort at all is put, I'm surprised that it was even made at all. Some of the star ship interior in some scenes you can tell some of it is from a factory, the title sequence is cheap as if done from a home video program, the computers look pedestrian instead of futuristic, the list just goes on.

There is just a lot of hilarity, I really like how the crew points out the amount of cliché rail failing there are, you could almost make a drinking game out of that. Even like that in the break segments they put in a lot of railings on the ship for no reason, much like with the film.

There is a chase sequence which is one of the worst chases I've ever seen (and one of the slowest) as we see both the protagonist go after the villain in what looks like a golf cart or floor buffer. One of the crew says my favorite quote which is comparing this film to the race sequence in "Ben Hur".

But of course the highlight for me is the amount of names (which range up to 40 or 50) they give for the lead actor playing the protagonist whom of course is true to his name as it perfectly describes the quality of his acting. Those names just crack me up from how colorful and ridiculous they really are.

In space you will scream at this film.
