Summary: The vast, deserted
movie lot of a once-prominent Hollywood film studio is home
to a vicious group of furry, grinning, toothy little aliens
who read their victims' minds and kill them by making their
dreams come true. But I've got this week's show to talk
about, so I'll get back to that situation later.
Prologue: Everyone on the SOL is turning each other on, even though (like Robert Palmer) they don't mean to.
Segment One: Pearl needs the SOL to store a couch for her, and they immediately don pajamas and begin jumping on it. In retaliation, she sends them Hobgoblins.
Segment Two: Crow produces an instruction film for young men on how to treat women. His only real claim is that they don't exist.
Segment Three: Crow sets up a crisis hotline for people watching the movie. Bobo calls with his own kind of crisis -- he's in love with a woman of another species. Does he mean Pearl?
Segment Four: Mike has a brilliant plan: They all escape while decoying Pearl with cardboard cut-outs of themselves while a crude tape plays. It early works, too.
Segment Five: Servo goes back in time and kicks Rick Sloane in the shins; Crow reads an interview with Sloane wherein he says being kicked by a robot gave him the inspiration to do the movie. In the castle, Bobo and Brain Guy are jumping on the couch, which makes Pearl quietly yet seethingly angry.
Stinger: Several shots of the hobgoblins driving a golf cart.
man. You have no idea the torture it was to watch this movie
several times in the space of a week. It shoots right to the
top of the list of the worst movies we've ever done.
Speaking personally, the only one I hated as much was
probably Overdrawn At The
Memory Bank, and even that
experience bred a less intense sort of hate, leaving an
aftertaste not quite so malignant and foul.
