If you're understandably unfamiliar with the 10-season wonder, the show's mad scientist villains forced Hodgson or Nelson and a couple of kitbashed robots to sit through a different bad movie each episode, constructing a kind of shadow joke narrative to the movie's actual garbage plot. The movie was broken up with skits that served as a kinda faux-overture and intermission, which ranged from tolerably cute 'n corny to outright hilarious. At the show's best, you'd get jokes on everything from the Green Bay Packers to actor Clu Gulager as a reflection of the middle-aged cast's specific cultural touchstones. When Mike, Servo, and Crow list off dozens of insulting nicknames for Reb Brown's meathead hero in "Space Mutiny"—Blast Hardcheese, Bolt VanderHuge, Big McLargeHuge—it was hilarious because it's a couple of out-of-shape comedians ragging mercilessly on a big dumb dude. Beneath the homemade puppets and community college-level production values was a deceptive amount of personality and wit that remains memorable even a decade later.
