Description by OLDIES.com:
It's Mystery Science Theater 3000
, America's only show that makes fun of really bad B movies from the comfort of a spaceship floating above Earth. Mike Nelson, along with his mechanical companions, wisecracking Crow an well-read chick magnet Tom Servo, make suffering through Hollywood's worst films a breeze. Adding their own dialogue, barrage of witty remarks, and an occasional colorful skit, the next hour and a half will fly by like it were only 90 minutes. There's no ushers with flashlights, crying babies, or women with big hair to spoil the fun.
It's Mike Nelson's virgin voyage on The Satellite Of Love, and boy does his crew have a girl for him in The Brain That Wouldn't Die. Unfortunately she's only a head, but you know what they say, sometimes you have to do things just to get "a head" in this world (har, har). This story finds a young doctor climbing back to his wrecked car only to discover his fiancee has been decapitated. Scooping up her noggin like a linebacker and running off, Crow blurts out, "He's at the 20. He's at the 10. No one will catch him." Then later in this flick, as our leading lady floats in a tray of magical life sustaining liquid, Tom Servo remarks, "Look, She makes her own gravy." If that wan't enough, don't miss the onboard interview between our three pals and the decapitated diva. It's a hoot!
Sharp-witted robots Crow and Tom Servo are joined by human Mike Nelson (in his first voyage) in savaging 1960's decapitation thriller THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN'T DIE, in which a suave scientist keeps his fiance's head alive while searching for a proper replacement body via strippers and old friends. Even the boys found this guy's modus operandi reprehensible.
After getting trapped on an orbiting satellite, an unlucky soul must watch some of the silliest movies ever made as part of a fiendish experiment dreamed up by a group of sinister scientists. But as he views the films with two robots, he actually starts having a good time. He and his companions begin to make fun of what they see up on the screen... and their observations are frequently hilarious.
In this entry of the "Mystery Science 3000" series, the three witty viewers watch the sci-fi flick "The Brain That Wouldn't Die."
