: For the Outside Stuff selection, I'm going
: outside the rotation for..."RT Live:
: Carnival of Souls".
As for the movie, I thought it was very effective. Yes, it's low budget and the big plot twist is very familiar, but I thought it actually worked. It's creepy, yet is still highly riffable. As for the shorts ("The Dirt Witch Cleans Up" and an ACI short on grass masks), well...the Seventies were a strange time.
The guys handled the jokes very well, and the pre-show slides were great, as always. I thought it turned out very well.
:And for the Original Stuff, the selection
: is..."Pod People" (Show 303).
The movie "Pod People" is kind of disturbing for me. The producers' decision to add a heartwarming "E.T." subplot to what was essentially a slasher flick is jarring, to say the least. Especially the whole idea of the kid wondering if his cute alien pal is a murderous monster. Still, I liked the cute kitten.
As for the ep, I thought the riffing worked fine, though maybe one less "Chief, McCloud" joke would've been nice. The host segments were good, with two songs and the wild bit with Trumpy's magic standing out.
Not bad, I thought. How about you?
Watch out for snakes.
