Episode K12: Fugitive Alien
First aired: KTMA on 5 February 1989
Since the recordings from the KTMA season (Season Zero) are from over-the-air recordings on a VCR in 1989, the quality isn't the greatest. This episode is a little dark, for instance. But, my copy is as good quality as is available.
|Joel & Servo, but no Crow|
|Not Yul Brynner|
The movie is a Sandy Frank import from Japan. No flying turtles or hot Japanese she-villains -- all the villains are men -- just bad sci-fi action.
Despite missing one-third of the riffing crew, the riffing is good. I do miss Crow, but Joel and Josh (Servo) play together well.
I wonder sometimes if the worse the movie is the better the riffing seems. That could explain it. I didn't care for the movie at all. But then, again, that's the whole point of the show, isn't it?
