Plan 9?

My cats could deconstruct that one.

plan 9 is too easy. And it ain't worth it without Trace Beaulieu, the real Crow t Robot. Bill Corbett is no Trace Beaulieu.

I'm a big Ed Wood fan, how I wish I could be there. He is a hero to anyone who tries to break into Hollywood.

"Colonel Tom Edwards: Why, a particle of sunlight can't even be seen or measured.

Eros: Can you see or measure an atom? Yet you can explode one. A ray of sunlight is made up of many atoms!

Jeff Trent: So what if we do develop this Solanite bomb? We'd be even a stronger nation than now.

Eros: Stronger. You see? You see? Your stupid minds! Stupid! Stupid!"

My favorite part of the movie. I can't believe none of them were nominated for an Oscar.

Joel Hodgson was my favorite, it wasn't as good when he left.

But maybe I say that because I thought he was hot.

joel was definitely the best of the two hosts. mike nelson was a great writer but I liked Joel's character and performance much better. They tried too hard to make it a "show" with a narrative when Nelson took over.

most comedy TV shows, even the best ones, eventually become too broad and unintentionally self-parodic.
