0704: The Incredible Melting Man

MST3k, Experiment #0704

The first new horror creature. The Incredible Melting Man.

"You've never seen anything til you've seen the Sun through the rings of Saturn," exclaims Alex Rebar. Apparently, somehow this causes him to start melting and eating people, such as a nurse in the tightest fitting nurse's outfit ever, a nerdy fisherman, a horny old couple who simply can't keep their hands off each other in a car. To save the day comes Doctor Ted Nelson!


DOCTOR... Ted Nelson. Hajka!!!

Well, this episode stands out for obvious reasons. They had just made the movie, and every host segment is about the movie-making process. I won't go on about it, because there's actual episode guides all over the place that go into every detail imaginable. What I will say is that the one segment that sticks out the most is the "test audience" bit. Also, in another segment, Pearl and Dr. Forrester make their way up to the S.O.L. for a rare appearance.

I really enjoy this episode, and it's mostly because of the riffing. The movie is pretty lame, and the riffs make it all the more enjoyable. Good episode. I like it.


Favourite line: "A little young to be pregnant, isn't she?"
