Summary: This film gives us
insight into the banality of banality and would have us
believe that murderous cults are a bad thing. Zap Rowsdower
is a guy who was in a cult, then he either dropped out or
got kicked out -- hang on, I gotta go check with Paul
Chaplin about the plot of this film.
Prologue: Servo and Crow loot the SOL after a power outage of a mere second. Their looting is rather fruitless, nay, even counter-productive.
Segment One: Pearl, in a renewed effort to rule the world, tries taking over one person at a time, firstly Todd Gunderson. Servo is next on the list.
Segment Two: Servo constructs an ode to Canada, and manages to turn it into a ripping slam-fest. "Where the hell do they get off sharing a border with us?!?"
Segment Three: Everyone in the castle, as well as Crow and Servo, comes down with hockey hair.
Segment Four: Mike, although immune to the ravages of hockey hair, has come down with Grizzled Old Prospectors disease.
Segment Five: The robots start their own cult, sort of a muffin-y, Ally McBeal kind of cult. Pearl is this close, this close, to taking over Carl.

my vacation and sick time. How about Plink Holmgren? Or Pow
