0810: The Giant Spider Invasion

MST3k, Experiment #0810

Creeping!...Crawling!...Crushing! The Giant Spider Invasion.

A black hole hits North Wisconsin and opens a door to other dimensions. Giant 15 meter spiders emerge from it, who have an appetite for human flesh! Dr. Jenny Langer and Dr. Vance from the NASA try to save the world.


PACKERS!!!

This is the first really great episode of the SciFi era. Every host segment ties in with the others and are all funny... The movie is a pile of dung with a few mid-rate actors, providing for hillarious riffs. I don't know, this one just sticks out above all the rest of season eight(8) that came before it.

I love love LOVE the "throw pillows" exchange between Pearl and Brain Guy, and pod Gypsy is just great. The best part though is Crow when he's all amped up and hyper, which of course extends into the theater for a bit.

I really don't know for sure, but I am pretty certain I was randomly cheering "Packers!!" long before I saw this episode... I am sure they did it on a prior episode, but for as long as I can remember I would cheer "Packers!" any time I would see any sports team (aside from the Packers of course) on TV. I guess it's just fun to say. Either way, it makes me laugh a lot each and every time they say it on this episode.

Ahh, good times... I love this episode. Definitely worth buying.
