Rob & Jim get blindsided by Android, a quirky film about a quirky robot and some quirky criminals, one of whom turns out to be a quirky multiple murderer. Topics discussed include laser pornography, how best to sabotage your boss's lunch date, and whether or not all people in the future know Shakespeare. Also: Klaus Kinski's portrayal of a weird German pervert is surprisingly effective.

In which Rob & Jim dissect a cult classic about Nazis and aliens(wizards?? vampires???), with a little bit of outside knowledge and a heaping pile of praise for the trippy soundtrack.

... it's just a shame that sometimes the soundtrack is all you can hear, or that every time Scott Glenn is on screen the plot crumples like a cheap suit. There's also some weeeiiiird stuff going on with how the film treats its Nazi characters, versus how it treats an entity that is supposedly the Ultimate Evil, but we'll get to that later. We'll get to everything later.

 

P.S. Hey, Mike? Watch your back, that Wilson guy gives me the creeps...

Brace yourselves for heartbreak, as Rob is forced to confront the fact that a movie he enjoyed on MST3K may not actually be very good. Deadpan acting and bizarre soundtrack choices are discussed at length, and Jim has a distressingly plausible theory as to who this movie was for. Plus: How much did Rob like the Melting Man's bone gloves? The answer will surprise you.

Rob & Jim meander their way through Q: The Winged Serpent, which is mostly about terrible policemen occasionally crossing paths with a dragon. Topics discussed also include uncomfortable police brutality jokes, why you should always have your lawyer present when holding the city hostage, and whether or not Michael Moriarty can actually play the piano. Evil dreams!
