We're a little late folks, sorry. Anyway...
: The Outside Stuff selection is..."TV
: Wheel (HBO Version)" & the
: "Statical Planets" trailer...
As I've previously noted, "TV Wheel" has a pretty clever premise. Some of the sketches are funny, while others are a bit too odd for my tastes. It's worth watching, though. And the only real difference between the HBO version and the TFNWSRN version is the latter has an intro from Joel explaining the concept.
As for "Statical Planets", you'll have to see it for yourself. I really can't do it justice.
: the Original Stuff selection
: is..."Robot Monster" (Show 107).
As for the movies, the two "Commando Cody" chapters are the usual stuff: exposition, fistfight, exposition, gunfight, chase, cliffhanger. Predictable, but fun. And "Robot Monster" is truly worthy of its non-accolades. (Gorilla suit? With a diving helmet? Really?) It does have a good score from Elmer Bernstein.
The host segments are pretty funny, and the riffing is good, if a bit sparse. As Josh points out in his DVD intro, they were still developing their new, scripted style.
Over to you...
Watch out for snakes.
