Episode 405: Being from Another Planet
First aired: Comedy Central on 4 July 1992
|The title gave away the ending|
This episode has never been released on video, so my copy is a fan copy. The quality isn't that great, but I'm not sure how much of that is the recording, how much is from a lo-res transfer to DVD, or how much is my doing a poot job of ripping it to iTunes.
There's also an edit in the final Host Segment, after the movie, that jumps suddenly from Joel talking to Servo saying something.
|Even the recording was bad|
This was a funny episode. Really bad film -- more on how bad in a moment -- with a silly plot. Some of the acting is fine, but some of it is really bad. Plus, it has a spoiler in the title!
It's hard to tell in places how poor the film quality is, because of the sub-standard quality of my recording, but there are some moments when J&tB complain about not being able to see what's on the screen.
What's the film about? A mummy is discovered in King Tut's tomb. No, not King Tut, but another mummy. It gets too much radiation from an x-ray and comes alive. It walks around collecting crystals, then uses them to return to its home world, because ... surprise! ... it's a being from another planet! The end.
