|Why 12? Why not?|
You'd think I was a liar or just plain crazy. Either would be right.
So I won't tell you that. I'll let you come to that conclusion on your own. And, if you do, then you're either a liar or just plain crazy.
Oh, it's not the worst movie they did. But it's definitely a bad one.
It's directed by David Bradley, who also directed Madmen of Mandoras. You may know that film under another title. They added some footage and repackaged it as They Saved Hitler's Brain. I'm sure that tells you all you want to know about The Talented Mr. Bradley.
|The moon is for lovers.||It's also dangerous.|
For now, let's look at this steaming pile of move.
|Giant steps are what you take, walking on the moon. I hope my legs don't break, walking on the moon.|
|Can't we all just get along? Before we die horribly in a rocket explosion on the moon?||We find out that the Moon People are fascinated with pussy. (Yes, those are cats.)|
|Mike Nelson was in the Tea Party from way back.||Frank likes the idea of Dr. Forrester roasting ... in hell!|
There are a couple of throw-away sketches, like Mike attending a tea party thrown by Gypsy. It doesn't go well. There's the roast of Dr. Forrester that starts mean then goes downhill. And, there's the tennis match with the Bots.
|You could say the short film is the star.||Or, you could say the star of the short film is the star.|
|Nuveena invites Mike to come away with her.||Mike rejects Nuveena after she uses the Bots as kitchen appliances.|
The inside joke is that Michael J. Nelson is married to Bridgett Jones, who played Nuveena.
Lots of funny. Both a short and a feature that offer visions of the future that just didn't happen. Everything clicked.
I hope this one gets released on video soon. My fan copy is of good quality, but I would love to have a commercial release. This is a good episode. Season Five ended on a very high note.
