Best of the Worst: Plinketto #2

August 25, 2016425 Comments

The Plinketto board is back! Is the Plinkett board replacing Half in the Bag? Is Half in the Bag replacing Best of the Worst? Is the comment section replacing Red Letter Media? Are tired memes replacing even more tired memes?

Filed in: Best of the Worst

  • I come here to have something to put on in the background this morning, and behold, this is up.

  • tOmy`

    Fuck the Youtube comments, this is where the OGs are at!

    You know, until you ban them for not making the comments like the Youtube ones!

    EYOOOOOOO

    #Omittedgate

  • Calum Offswitch Hay

    A white man standing on a mentally disabled man’s medicine. What sort of political statement is Mike making here?

  • Ruben Plooster

    It’s good to have contempt for your audience.

  • Nieieieee

    i’m the Neo

  • tOmy`

    He is making RLM great again.

  • LameSame

    Yeah, they could at least give us a shout-out. We may be a bunch of disgusting, depressed, morally-devoid wretches over here, but GOSHDARNIT we are ORIGINAL.

    We’re stylistically designed to be this way. Hey-o!

  • LameSame

    “RLM: Turn us on for some background noise!™”

  • durhay

    Hubris!

  • Adzl33t

    Review Kubo, it’s amazing

  • amplifact

    Since they started the bandcamp and soundcloud pages that is pretty much how I’ve been using them at work.

  • A more dignified death than Tasha Yar… Because at the very least it was at the end of the episode and was the culmination of the events that preceded it.

  • Punanistorm

    Is “WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWW!!!!” replacing the “is x replacing y”-joke?

  • They never review animated movies for some reason.

    Maybe they feel unqualified because none of them are animators?

  • Rhonelle Kuitunen

    I was hoping you would land on Dark Futures. Oh, plinketto board, why must you tease us?

  • Marius

    It that a Nukie pillow?! xD

  • UnhealthyNutter

    I was hoping at the beginning when they were talking about Abraxas: Guardian of the Universe.. I was hoping somebody was gonna do a Jessie Ventura impression and start talking about thermite, being a Nam Navy Seal and jews. Buy alas. Shame the ball didnt land on it. I was really hoping to see Abraxas: Guardian of the Universe as well. Maybe next time.

    PS. Speaking of Jesse Ventura he’d make a great POTUS imo. I’d vote for him.

  • Review Star War you Hacks!

  • durhay

    MOOOOOOOMMMMMM

  • Yeah, the comment section isn’t all that creative, neither are your videos, but you don’t see us complaining you filthy fucking haaaaaccccckkkkssss!

  • Joe Syxpac

    Someday I’ll be too mature to laugh at Dom DeLuise accidentally getting fucked in the fat folds and producing children jokes.

    But that day is not today.

  • Sully

    *WWWWHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAA!!!!
    Ya fackin’ amateur.

  • why_wolf

    Those sons of bitches changed everything!! I don’t like change!!!

  • Joe Syxpac

    There needed to be a Tasha Yar burial scene at the end, and someone had to say “To absent friends”.

  • UnhealthyNutter

    Does Rich Evans actually have diabetus?

  • Rhonelle Kuitunen

    …he was also the Gov. of Minnesota as well.

  • RLMkeepitup

    This jokes in the video come at me like a windy road with the pedal down hard, lol

  • Adzl33t

    So Mike and Jay are experts on Adam Sandler?

    Animated movies have plots, characters, and themes, just like other movies, not that different to me

  • Joe Syxpac

    Nope, just AAAAAAAAAAAIDS!

  • Firsty Lasty

    I had so much trouble watching this…. I kept getting bored and clicking on other Tabs…. then realising I missed heaps of stuff.. and trying again.
    then getting bored……………

  • AreyouaNazi? Isthatyourelf?

    As a big Stargate fan, I have to point out that Dom Delouise was Urgo and his son was a Director on Stargate SG1 and I *think* Atlantis. His other son also guest starred on there as the romantic interest to Samantha Carter.

    #TheMoreYouKnow

  • I wouldn’t be so myopic to say Adam Sandler specifically, but on inexpensive comedies shot in minimal locations, or low budget horror/sci-fi, they do have practical experience in those areas.

    On terms of story and character animated stuff is not that different. But RLM hasn’t shown interest in the technical aspects of animation and they do not look at or review many films aimed at younger audiences.

    It’s not a big deal, they just haven’t done that in the past and probably won’t in the foreseeable future. It is their show, so it’s their call, I’ll watch them review whatever, but I gave up trying to make suggestions ages ago.

  • Joe Syxpac

    Maybe the Star Wars prequels burned em out on animated movies for kids.

  • Firsty Lasty

    HAHAHAHHAHA! Kevin Smith…. HAHAHAHA he must feel so bad… in his LA mansion making way better movies than Space Cop….

  • For this audience certainly.

  • RLMkeepitup

    He’s still alive because he checks and he checks it often

  • MUGENwonder

    You must be a special kind of pathetic to be whiteknighting Kevin Smith

  • Adzl33t

    Animation do also have cinematic techniques such as timing, color, composition, and movement
    Cgi can use standard cinematography like most live action movie

    Gennedy Tratavosky uses George Miller’s Mad Max as a reference

    Besides I’m sure some of these animated are more easier to watch than most blockbuster schlock

  • Adzl33t

    Most kids movie don’t have boring political discussions

  • Percy Gryce

    I know a lot of you are upset that Mike and Rich seem to be paying attention only to the stupid YouTube commenters and ignoring us stupid commenters on their very own webzone. I share your feelings. But I view the YouTubers as the prodigal son of the biblical parable and we’re the elder son. When the elder son grumbles about being neglected, the father replies, “Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.”

    So we’ve got that going for us. Which is nice.

  • Percy Gryce

    Richevans may have diabetus, but Mike is showing more symptoms of amnesia caused by chronic alcoholism. Trust me, I’m a doctor. Kind of.

  • Joe Syxpac

    Or they just hate us.

  • Punanistorm

    In his defense, Space Cop really is that bad of a movie.

  • Punanistorm

    Well fuck you too, buddy!

  • Joe Syxpac

    Most movies for adults don’t either.

  • Joe Syxpac

    I’d only vote for him if he body slammed the competition.

  • tOmy`

    But how can you hate something so beautiful?

  • tOmy`

    To be completely honest, I think that talking skateboard would significantly improve already pretty much perfect movie Rollergator.

    And you wouldn’t even need to shoehorn it into the script; the ninja chasing down jive-talking gator in the rollerblader’s backpack is already on a skateboard!

    You see? This is why I am getting paid the big bucks.

  • Joe Syxpac

    Crap.

    Now I gotta hunt that one down. Just the name alone would be worth it.

  • Punanistorm

    The creators of Space Flop complaining about a lack of creativity.

    That gave me a good chuckle.

  • I’ve just had a billion dollar idea to rival the billion dollar idea conceived by Paul Fieg (ghost aliens):

    Sony wants its own expanded universe modeled on Marvel’s money-printing movie machine. The trouble is that they keep employing hacks who are constantly screwing up, like they’re in a Chris Farley comedy, irrecoverably tarnishing much loved characters from cherished movies, and making these properties toxic as far as sequels and cross-overs are concerned.

    This cannot continue indefinitely. Nobody on the board of directors at Sony wants to run the risk of being hauled up in front of Intergalactic Time Court on charges of raping anyone’s childhood, and subsequently paying out costly civil damages.

    So instead of trying to re imagine what Ghostbusters would have been like if the script had been penned by Emmeline Pankhurst while on an acid trip, or rebooting Spiderman every six months why not buy the rights to characters from these shitty straight-to-the-rental-rack-videos-in-your-local-Off-Licence (liquor store to you Americans):

    The lumpy alien from Mutant Species who was probably one of the nerds at the same high school as the original Predator, soup loving Repo Jake, Crazy Fat Ethel, Shakma. All brought together in the same shared universe. The movies would be cheap to make, plus everybody wants a Crazy Fat Ethel doll and a promotional pudding bucket. The merchandise would fly off the shelves and wouldn’t be marked down in Target prior to the films’ release.

    I will accept the job of Chairperson of Sony Pictures Entertainment now. Kindly send the company jet to my current location.

  • tOmy`

    You can find it on YouTube (or Google). Or you can find it in the permanent circulation over at the place we shouldn’t mention and can’t link to.

    Rollergator truly is a masterpiece. I seen it three times already and I am still finding new depths of the story.

  • Mr_Show

    Yay!

  • Down Under Aussie (in Aus)

    Rich Evans, star of Space Cop, informing people what is and isn’t funny.

  • Joe Syxpac

    I’m watching a scene from it stolen from The Professional.

  • Tom Williamson

    No, that will only bring…them…here

  • Variant

    Dom Delouise is shredding his coffin attempting to roll over right about now

  • Mark Bisone

    Larry Swerdlove, the director of “Skateboard Kid”, also produced an episode of the cartoon show “Stories from My Childhood” that starred Amy Irving. Amy Irving was in “She’s Having a Baby” with Kevin Bacon.

    BACON SCORE: 2

  • Mark Bisone

    Oddly enough, “Mutant Species” was the only film that would get past Chinese censors, as their communists overlords banned ghosts, magic and hobo beards long ago.

  • frankelee

    Speaking of replacing things, is Mike going to get a new girlfriend now that Rich Evans is getting married?

  • Mark Bisone

    “The Brefisk Club”

  • dollar store cashier wife

    by only reading it when you want some easy comments to hate.

  • bleurgh

    Oh my God, I just realised I watched The Skateboard Kid when I was a child in the 90s.

  • WrongWithYourFace

    Implied upvote for Jay’s They Live shirt.

  • Variant

    You probably feel how I feel when I realized I was actually “educated” about sex with “How Can I Tell If I’m Really In Love”, and “Where Do I Come From” at my budgetless school. Like RLM is creeping around stealing things from your neighborhood dumpster.

  • WrongWithYourFace

    Kidney stones don’t grant you a doctorate.

  • kiodane

    Is YouTube replacing Blip?

  • 6 of 1 and half a dozen of the other. It is all the same shit.

  • Rick_Berman

    Does acknowledging a meme kill it, or make it stronger? I say kill, Like
    when older folks take on trends or use certain words, they loose their
    magic.

  • tOmy`

    That comment + nickname synergy tho…

  • Glyph Wright

    Is this replacing Re:View?

  • Glyph Wright

    Dammit, Rick Berman, you’re ruining memes too?

  • Derrick Cryderman

    Hopefully Rich Evans will replace Mike and there will be two Rich Evans

  • Colin

    Wilford Brimley was 50~51 when he played a retiree in Cocoon… what a world.

  • Rick_Berman

    Beautiful Irony.

  • Adzl33t

    That Dom Deluise gag goes way too long and not tbat funny, Dom gave life to the voice of Coop of the amazing show Megas XLR, show the Deluises some respect

  • If you can pass a kidney stone, you can pass any course.

  • This comment section WOULD be in the olympics of internet comment sections, though.

  • Someone turn them upside down so we can hear it this way.

  • The movie about the monster dog?! I AGREE!

  • The vapors in that cloud, though…

  • SUPERMAD

    Are Dom Deluise jokes replacing an entertaining show I watch?

  • Adzl33t

    That’s Cujo

  • Ultragonk

    This wasn’t such a good episode. But I think that is down to the movies themselves not having a lot to kind of riff off of. They seemed to be more bland than anything else. I can see why there was a protracted discussion about Dom Deluise’s reproduction cycle.

    I do like the Plinketto board though, great prop.

  • tOmy`

    You know, hearing you bash running inside jokes, one has to wonder:

    Do you mean the brilliant ones as well? Like that time when someone got stoned and talked about homing pigeons for better part of the week? Lemme tell you, that was some hysterical shit. Comedy gold. Biblical, even. I mean sure, some of them weren’t all that inclusive, but were they justified? Yea, I’d say they were justified. Like that trivia one. Sure, you could say that we were just killing time, but thanks to these brilliant jokes (or genius, even) regulars had a chance to connect with each other. It was almost like a romance. You know, sparks flying. Or maybe not a romance, maybe I am just taking it too far, but you could definitely feel some sort of a chemistry…

    But without them, what do we have? Hoping that Jay’s VLOG Season 2: The Riveting will replace Pre-Rec?

  • Sandoz

    I don’t get the Dom Delouise joke.

  • Percy Gryce

    Thanks for bringing that up. As it happens, I had another attack and another surgery in June. I’ve spent so much time in hospital that I should at least get an honorary M.D.

  • tOmy`

    This upvote was more of the “supportive” kind, rather than “made me laugh and would read again” kind.

  • Guy Mann

    My one memory of Deathstalker II is the line “Is that a sword in your pocket, or are you happy to see me?”

  • Percy Gryce

    Likewise.

  • Variant

    You guys are making me never want to say “hey-o” ever again.

  • LameSame

    You’re welcome. You may not want to go throwing it around too much anyway.

  • Variant

    I don’t think I do, I actually just started shuffling through my memories trying to remember the few times I have. I’m sure it’s happened, but not that often. Point in case though – fewer precision strikes.

  • Mark Bisone

    I always figured youtube was more like the parable of the sower: “Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand.”

  • RLMkeepitup

    in the words of Jesse (Ventura): follow the money

  • Admiral Bone-to-Pick

    Is ‘Re:View’ replacing ‘Quick Cuts’?

  • RLMkeepitup

    I get they’re frustrated and separating long time fans from trolls with the same quotes may be hard, but not acknowledging those long timers in a meaningful way is an interesting choice.

  • Mr. Wint

    REGULARS!…HA!

  • stryker1121

    Haven’t watched yet, but yes, bad movies are often bad cuz they’re boring. I watched the Sidaris collection with some friends and outside of Hard Ticket and maybe Malibu Express, the rest of the movies aren’t even fun to goof on…they’re just incredibly slow paced and poorly made.

  • Like Icare

    The Breivik Club?
    I thought he used bombs and guns.

    Now back to 9/11.

  • stryker1121

    I wish my 75-year-old father and his ilk would start posting Harambe stuff to kill that fucking obnoxious nightmare of a meme.

  • Mr. Wint

    You d-bags started the whole, ‘does this mean…?’ joke thing and now you’re surprised that 15-year-olds on you-tube are taking the irony too far (child-molestation and murder jokes aside of course)? You probably don’t even now my favorite color you ungrateful twats!

  • Like Icare

    Disqus lives matter, yo.

    Did I say lives? I meant “lack of lives”.

  • Like Icare

    Is it white? Are you a Nazi? Is that your elf?

  • Sandoz

    I counted, and there were six stunts.

  • Mr. Wint

    Oh, pardon me Miss Librarian, do you know the exact floor and shelf number of Passing of the Great Race, Mein Kamf and Beginners Guide to Human Dissection?

  • Sandoz

    You need to throw joy of cooking in there.

  • (I know, that’s why it’s funny…)

  • I usually end that sentence with the word “Delouise.”

  • Just like my bowel movements!

  • The regular commenters here force me to up my game. I like it.

  • Sandoz

    Seeing the Nukie pillow made me want a Thing pillow and an Evil Dead pillow, amongst may others, but that would be a lot of fucking pillows.

  • Mr. Wint

    Irregulars?

  • WrongWithYourFace

    Oh, damn. I thought you were through with all that.

    I like the touch of giving yourself an upvote. Probably the closest thing you can get to that honorary M.D.

  • Percy Gryce

    Oh, shit. I did upvote myself. What an asshole!

  • Alexandria Sanders

    Yep, they’ve officially gone insane. You guys need a vacation.

  • bhlaab

    Wilford Brimley is like the Magic Johnson of diabetes. There’s effectively no trace of it left in his system

  • Like Icare

    You too could be brimming with health if you listen to his advice and take care of your diabeetus.

  • Cream-A-Thon

    “Plinketto” – called it.

  • You guys need to set up a list somewhere where we can go to look for all-time best worst movies, instead of having to re-watch old episodes of Best of the Worst over and over again. After all, you don’t want your episodes to be overloaded with views, right?

  • dollar store cashier wife

    they coudn’t care less. ‘subscribe to patreon and STFU’ is the only attitude they have towards fans.

  • LincolnHawksBaseballCap

    Jimminy Cricket Prick Bastards!

  • Charon

    From the editing, it looked like a lot of footage for this episode went to the cutting room floor, where Dom DeLuise was hungrily waiting to eat it.

    *infinite regression rimshot*

  • Jegsimmons

    So just out of curiosity due to happenstance….Are you guys fans of Jon Tron and Lordkat?

  • tOmy`

    No.

    #ThugLife

  • tOmy`

    Keep laughing, but when was the last time someone called you “Mr.” in webzone comments, sir?

    Ha?!

    Plinkett reviews remember.

  • tOmy`

    Have you seen the “rollergator rap” on YouTube? Because it has the ninja chase.

    That is the key aspect of the movie. Sorta.

    I don’t wanna spoil anything, but… you know.

  • WrongWithYourFace

    This time… I’ll allow it.

  • Lance Flexington

    the next gimmick video selector should be like the board from Press Your Luck and have Whammies on it

  • Jegsimmons

    not you

  • DanceOfBirther

    Abraxas is a diamond in the rough, except maybe the Jim Belushi scenes. Now, would you like me to tell you a story?

  • Cream-A-Thon

    I don’t know about you but isn’t any space cramped when Dom DeLuise is around? He’s a large man.

  • Lt Hurwitz

    And a new meme will begin in 3…2….3….4 423 and.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    Where’d that sexy fucker go?

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    I was just watching porn and now I’m watching this.

    The good news is that I already have my pants down.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    59:44 seconds? Shit, this is going to take multiple sessions unless I set a new personal edging record.

  • RLMkeepitup

    oh no you don’t

  • RLMkeepitup

    they say 2 minutes is average, that’s 30 sessions, surely making it impressive by any womans standards

  • RiverDevil

    (note: made an earlier post awaiting moderation since it included the link to this)
    It’s no longer updated, it’s no longer linked in the menu, they pretend it doesn’t exist, but they can’t excape it: google Red Letter Media Reviews A-Z

    I also love how they took the time to make an icon for Quick Cuts, b/c it was gonna have so many videos

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    I hear math skills like that are also impressive.
    Where the babes at?

  • RLMkeepitup

    oh gawd, RLM has been systematically outsourcing them, good thing Rich is so purdy in the mouth.

  • lloydbeatz

    holy shit, we watched Repo Jack on Movie Dicks!!

  • Domo

    Why did you have to tell Mike you already reviewed Zaat?

    Just re-film a HiTB episode and see how long before Mike remembers covering this material. You’d probably get a full episode again before Rich Evans gets to break the news.

    Time to even the score between Rich and Mike.

  • metalraygear

    Is the end credits being replaced by skater 90’s culture? WHOOOOOOOOOA!

  • RLMkeepitup

    watching those vhs tapes can’t be good for one’s mental health. Jay was praying even the Ben Hur remake would turn things around proving Plinketto truly redefines torture

  • Mr. Wint

    Mr. Painintheass, I only like things before they’re cool.

  • odigity

    Why is no one talking about the fact that the puck / ball does not have an equal chance of hitting every movie because ending in the center is far more likely than the sides?

    Did someone try to make Dan Haggerty into a blue collar action guy during the 1980s? Where the USA failed, Canada succeeded and brought forth Zap Rowsdower in The Final Sacrifice.

    What the fuck is wrong with you Rich? Don’t you know Man is the most dangerous predator out there? have you not watched all the movies with taglines claiming this???
    What the fuck, man?

  • Jean-François Martel

    i wanna say “balls”? Because they use a ball?

  • RiverDevil

    It turns out it’s man

  • MichaelKz

    Speaking of Dom DeLuise, let it be known to all that Cannonball Run 2 is infinitely better than the first one. The watched the original again and I was surprised at how slow the pacing is. The theme music is inappropriate too. Chuck Mangione’s soft trumpet playing is not what a movie about an illegal car race needs.

  • MichaelKz

    I agree. Tits are just not enough.

  • MichaelKz

    There is a Rifftrax of Rollergator.

  • Han Solo :(

    How much would a goFund me cost for Episode 7 Plinket? I feel like $20k would easily be enough to cover it.

  • RiverDevil

    Rich let slip during the PreRec stream on 8/24 a new Plinkett is in the works. It’s out … tomorrow

  • Han Solo :(

    you LIE! But is it Episode 7?

  • Han Solo :(

    looool

  • RiverDevil

    I’m afraid only those paying sweet patreon dollars know for sure, I don’t think they specifically said during the stream

  • RiverDevil

    it’s just a matter of STYLE

  • Oh, god. You did it to me again. Much like Elves , I had entirely suppressed the memory of Repo Jake . As before, I hadn’t remembered at first, but was triggered by the porn movie scene.

    Apparently my fragile pyche couldn’t deal with the horror of Dan Haggerty’s post- Grizzly Adams career.

    It’s been … what, thirty years or so?

    Damn youse, RLM! Damn youse all to hell!!

  • LameSame

    I’ve been posting on here for a few years now, so there’s no empty, random scheme attached to what I’m about to say. Rather: it just so happens that I’m a filmmaker and actor. By virtue of that, I would appreciate it if y’all took a look at this short, short, SHORT video of mine. It is done in a way that is even “Jay-appropriate”… (?)

    Anyhow: this is something I’m proud of as a director/actor and is also something up all y’all’s alley. I would not post this here all willy-nilly if I didn’t think it was the right thing to do. But I feel that it is. And for that, thank you! I love you all eternally. Y’all da best. Again: please don’t write this post off as spam, RLM. I’ve been supporting you monetarily for years. Also, you very well may enjoy the short video I’m posting.

    I’ve pasted the link below.. One needs to copy-and-paste the URL provided, and then delete the open spaces included therein. You won’t be disappointed if you go through with following such protocol, though! It’s quick, easy, and it helps a fellow broke artist. Y’all know me! I’m not one to leech! Just enjoy my shit! And, to be even bolder, let’s do more stuff like this for each other in the future.

    Here. Do what you want, delete the superfluous URL spaces, and enjoy:

    We talked about it last time. I even posted a spread sheet document (based on the Price is Right version) that counts all the probabilities depending on where you drop the ball.

    Needless to say, RLM are great at dropping balls.

  • It’s a mystery. AIDS!

  • Is The Skateboard Kid related in any way to The Dirtbike Kid, the movie where Ralphie from A Christmas Story has a magical dirtbike that’s alive and has a consciousness? It doesn’t talk, though.

    I used to see that on the Disney Channel all the time in the late ’80s/early ’90s.

  • Recreational Outrage

    That’s why new ball

  • Alex Doucet

    Dom Delabetes lol Love this show.

  • RiverDevil

    Come on people, I leave this juicy hanging curveball (style being a lyric from the Cannonball Run theme by Ray Stevens) for a Stylistically Designed To Be That Way meme and nothing in 9 hrs. Such restraint is not what the RLM overlords want

  • RLMkeepitup

    probably where they got their idea (a better movie)

  • RLMkeepitup

    reminds me of when ash was possessed, cool

  • Alex Doucet

    Useless fact : Dom Deluise died due to complications from diabetes.

    Never. I think some of the more hardcore fans here and on reddit scared her off when they were all dox happy.

    No. I certainly feel the lesser for having watched it.

  • Sandoz

    It wasn’t here. We love Jessi and miss her dearly.

    Actually, I think the mosquito is the deadliest animal in the world. Followed by sharks with frickin lasers attached to their heads.

    I liked the first one better, although CR2 had Frank Sinatra final movie appearance.

    Mike said that re:View was not going to replace any of the RLM shows, so everyone started freaking out that re:View was going to replace everything.
    Shows how well people listen.

  • NicCagesHair

    It wasn’t overexposure to bad Mel Brooks jokes?

    The good was great but the bad could certainly kill.

  • RiverDevil

    To be fair (credit to whoever noted this months ago), they said the same about HITB not replacing Plinkett, and, well…

  • Han Solo :(

    no post it now here

  • RiverboatGrambler

    Apparently links are kind of a no-no. RLM links are probably fine, but I still won’t post it out of spite. It’s not particularly hard to find.

  • Sandoz

    I think people don’t understand that the Plinkett reviews don’t happen frequently because Mike has to write the screenplay and the ANALsys. The Plinkett ideas and jokes don’t come overnight.

  • Han Solo :(

    ok little do-gooder. You mean that BS from march?

  • LameSame

    Oy, thanks man. I really, really appreciate it– I’m kind of cringing a bit. It was a super-drunk post. Rather relieved it was removed. But thank you!

  • Mike Magnum

    I was actually was hoping it would land on “Abraxas, Guardian of the Universe”. Rifftrax had already did it. But i would have loved to see there reaction to it. I mean the movie had Magic Hand that gets a teenage girl pregnant. Who gives immediately the next second gives birth to a mute boy. A villain who has a deep Austrian accent. And Jesse Ventura acting like a stupid Alien. It would have been right up there ally.

  • Mike Magnum

I mean the movie had Magic Hand that gets a teenage girl pregnant. Who gives immediately the next second gives birth to a mute boy. The boy is supposedly has the anti life equation in his head. Which isn’t explained at all. Anyways it has a villain who has a deep Austrian accent. And Jesse Ventura acting like a stupid Alien. Who gets it on with the mom. It would have been right up there ally. I think Ventura gave a better performance as Captain Freedom.

  • Cream-A-Thon

    I watched it with a few friends the other day online somewhere that would get redacted here. I admired its competent production values, awkward dialog, and spurts of pure silliness (the scene in the strip club, the rookie cop with the machine gun in his pants, and any scene with Abraxas and Mom, to start).
    Edit: Also, the Terminator parallels are wonderful.

  • DanceOfBirther

    Deathstalker II was on the board. They should save it for another sequels episode. I nominate Extro II and Prehysteria 2.

  • There’s a sewuel to EXTRO?

  • DanceOfBirther

    They have a couple of copies visible on the shelf in some episodes, making the frame dense.

    Does Rich really have diabetes ? That would really make me sad if he does. I am an expert on how to treat and cure diabetes, but the medical/pharmaceutical industrial complex wants me dead because of the things I want to do as a career. Ginger and Turmeric. No sugar. Lower the carbs. LOWER the carbs.

  • DoobzMcgee

    The best thing is to do is protein and fats in the morning and save your carb intake for later in the day / evening. A good 20 minute walk per day really does it. I cant emphasize your turmeric intake enough you can pour a tbs of powder in your coffee daily and it will alleviate your pains

  • DoobzMcgee

    I also highly recommend Organic Cacao Powder.. you can drink this in lieu of coffee and still get the same amount of caffeine, except it repairs the shit out of your liver and makes you feel less depressed

  • DoobzMcgee

    another therapy would be aloe vera juice for diruetic issues. it also heals your skin and does a bunch of other stuff that heals you that scientists who are paid by pharmaceutical companies dont want you to know

  • DoobzMcgee

    drink it….. 1/4 cup daily.. if you drink more than that you will get sick and die

  • DoobzMcgee

    Take a unit of ashwagandha before bedtime and you will feel good in the morning

  • DoobzMcgee

    daily

  • DoobzMcgee

    i’ve been coupling it with brahmi – gotu kola .. . so basically im taking a pill of ashwagandha and gotu kola daily.. BEFORE BED.. you wake up feeling really good (sometimes)

  • DoobzMcgee

    it helps repair your nervous system and kick start your metabolistic fuction.. boosts your immune system, shit like that

    Be glad you never had one. I had a cute little one with a santa hat on. Eventually one of the times its batteries had died I decided to just leave it silent on my dresser as a decorative prop… until one night I awoke to the most horrible sound. The thing came back on – for some reason – I guess it found another surge of battery juice. But it was only just enough to make it open its eyes halfway, hang its jaw open and just endlessly go “EEEEEEEEEEEEHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH” like it was stuck in the middle of a vowel. I ripped the things batteries out and banished it to the closet under the stairs. But sometimes at night if you listen real closely… you can hear it stirring. Actually that might just be the rats in my wall. But that’s my story. Don’t get a furby. They’re demons.

  • SamHouston

    HEY! What does a makeup guy in a comments section have to do with annoying commenters?

  • Jerome Gorden

    Quick question. In the TNG episode “Pen Pals”, Data makes contact with a young girl whose planet is being destroyed by volcanic forces. A debate ensues on the enterprise about whether they should let all the people on the planet die (genocide) or whether they should spend five minutes to correct the problem from orbit – they don’t even need to go down to the planet. Saving the planet would violate the Prime Directive.

    After debating the issue, Picard tells Data to stop all communication with the alien girl and let her entire civilization die. However, when Data makes contact with the girl for the last time, he hears the girl pleading with data to save her and her family. He is moved with pity and decides to save the entire planet. Lucky shit!

    So, my question is, isn’t the whole debate in the episode absolutely crazy? Even Jim Jones and Ted Bundy would not hesitate to save the planet. But these people are ready to let an entire planet die rather than violate their “non-interference principle”. Isn’t this muslim terrorist/crazy cult reasoning? Remember how bad we felt when Vulcan was obliterated?

  • Thanatos

    That’s the episode that reveals how fucking stupid the prime directive really is.

  • The thought has crossed my mind to. I do think it makes the Federation seem a little cold. But I also think we make these decisions every day. Take one example the refugee crisis. Some people that I have talked to just make me loose hope in humanity all together. I think we have these attitudes when in comes to many things, the food industry, Chinese Apple sweatshops and we have lived through the Iraq/Afganistan wars for the past 15 years where we actually did intervene. It’s looking grimmer every passing week with the Syrian and Ukraine crisis. Both have an aspect of promoting democracy.

    It’s really difficult for me to like what the Federation does but I can understand the policy. It is of course mixed with a little bit of utopianism where the humans have evolved and matured but that’s the Roddenberry vision that makes it Star Trek.

    I always imagine that the Federation would suffer if they would bring in undeveloped planets but…. I dunno. I have no answers. On Naboo I just stuff my face with food and don’t care.

  • Mike Magnum

    I don’t think that was the only episode that happen in. I remember when Worfs Step Brother wanted to save these people on dying planet. But Picard wouldn’t let him. So he secretly beamed the people onto the Holodeck. I think Roddenbarry came up with the Prime Directive of some commentary about how America should keep out the worlds problems. I mean the Vietnam War was going on at the time. Its funny that in every episode like that. They always reluctantly do the right thing.

  • Rick Jaeger

    That intro. That description.

    … Are Rich and Mike replacing the comment section on their own videos?

  • tOmy`

    Just prepare for a slight dip in quality in S2.

    That USA Network made me laugh. A lot of people (including reviewers) absolutely missed first episodes because it was “a hacker show with Christian Slater on USA Network”.

  • RLMkeepitup

    since the comment section is replacing RLM and Florida has a tropical depression, probably yours truly!

  • Variant

    I was always under the impression though that the prime directive was created under a more general concept of simple non-interference. They weren’t specifically thinking “what if we encounter some primitive species and a volcano is about to extinct them”, they were probably thinking more like “do we get involved in civil wars or moral decisions on alien planets”, and things like extinction events just happen to fall under that category. The thought-process there I think is almost similar to a time travel one – like do we have the right to stop an extinction event when our planet had to go through several to get to where it is now? What if another sentient species pops up sometime later after the first one vanishes, or the remaining inhabitants pass on the strongest genes, eventually resulting in a synergetic utopia. It is in a sense an arbitrary rule, but one that maybe prevents many political complications.

    A great example of trying to do the right thing backfiring is in a deep space 9 episode, when the crew of the defiant try helping out a planet that is stuck in a time warp, and inadvertently get caught in it . They find out some of the inhabitants are there living descendants, because they somehow became stranded right when the time warp hit. By the end of the episode they are left with two choices if they leave the planet there descendants cease to exist, but if they stay, everything stays as is. Didn’t explain it to well sorry but was a pretty brutal take on the prime directive.

  • bleurgh

    He never put a foot wrong in his career, but Wonka specifically is one of the greatest acting performances of all time. It’s a role that demanded so much range and you needed to both love, fear, admire and distrust the character at the same time. He also has to play everything from youthful wonder to furious anger. without it seeming out of character. An almost impossible task for most actors and yet Wilder nails it in every scene.

  • bleurgh

  • cyborg

    A selection of meats is layed out atop dvds covering them completely. Rich chooses which he finds juiciest. The DVD revealed is what they watch. He then dies from the diabetus.

  • cyborg

    Is RLM replacing the Universe?

  • NicCagesHair

    I’m sure there is a 9000 page fatalistic thesis on the prime directive somewhere. Hell, Mike is probably the author.

  • NicCagesHair

    Without Doc Brown and his chalkboard, I’ll never understand it.

  • NicCagesHair

    So it’s worth watching? The previews for S2 have definitely gotten me interested.

  • Jerome Gorden

    I watched the episode online a few days ago. Riker actually does mention something about there being a cosmic plan. Nevertheless, I’d be afraid of all the bad karma that would come from letting all these people die.

  • Jerome Gorden

    Exactly. The Prime Directive makes sense, but I felt they were getting a little too dogmatic about it in TNG. Kirk definitely didn’t give a shit about violating the Prime Directive if it meant saving a civilization.

  • Jerome Gorden

    Funny, I didn’t see this as a “Prime Directive Epsiode”. The problem was that Kira would die if they didn’t return to the station, and they couldn’t just force her to die for the sake of the colony. Did they mention the Prime Directive in this episode? I honestly can’t remember.

  • Joe Syxpac

    I’d be worried about the lack of sleep for the rest of your life.

    Troi does counter Riker’s cosmic argument with the possibility that their presence might also be part of the plan. In the end Picard shuts down the whole conversation when suggesting what they should do if it was a war instead of global catastrophe. He goes on to say the reason for the existence of the Prime Directive is to “protect us”.

    The strange irony in the episode was at the end Picard tells Data that he’s “come closer to understanding humanity”, but it wasn’t the android that ever considered letting everyone die.

    No wonder Data had so much trouble understanding humanity. When it came to dealing with less advanced cultures the crew rarely acted like humans.

    Don’t try to school me on languages you fiend, i got an “E minus” in French when i was there. It plainly goes Alpha, Beta, Ceta, Deta, Eeta, Feta, THEN Gamma, then a bunch of numbers i didn’t understand. School was difficult. Especially because of the bigger boys.

  • I have nothing interesting to say.

  • Variant

    I was actually going to bring this up when I was talking about the prime directive earlier. I think it’s less focused on the idea of a “grand plan” (although that could be a valid conclusion, this had occurred to me) in a religious sense.. and more like looking at things on a macroscale in a “we don’t really know” sort of way. I don’t think they’re acting on the idea of there being a grand plan, but I think they’re strategically avoiding chain reactions that could interfere with any sort of grand plan, or maybe even just trying not to fuck with complicated chain reactions in general. Maybe you save a planet from extinction, and later that planet nukes another civilized society. The Federation would then in some part be responsible for that atrocity.

  • Variant

    I have nothing to say of interest.

  • Thanatos

    But the hypocrisy is that once a civilization is spacefaring (and some debate as to what that means), they magically get their status changed from “non-interference let them die” to “we’ll do anything to help” even if they’re not a member of the federation! That’s a pretty arbitrary and pathetic point of distinction. I’d say anyone who’s capable of asking for help should get it, you uncaring monsters.

  • Thanatos

    In any logical universe Data would have rightly concluded to kill all humans.

  • Variant

    You raise some fine points, and I can’t say I disagree with any of them. I think another way to look at it though in comparison is the way in which we as humans treat the infants of other species. Like for instance, you’re not supposed to touch an abandoned baby animal because then it stands less of a chance of being accepted by its own kind (I don’t know how consistent this is in nature, it’s just something I’ve heard), and if you help it out it might end up being entirely dependent on you so you can’t re-release it into the wild. It may have to do more with some higher concept of self-sustainment and what kind of responsibility it is to be the very reason that a species has continued onward. There could be both xenophobic and religious consequences, amongst many other things.

  • Kevin

    yeah you might be correct, my memory is a little hazzy about the episode. I just thought the prime directive was part of the issue, just wasn’t the main issue.

  • cyborg

    At least feta is Greek in a way.

  • Thanatos

    “Like for instance, you’re not supposed to touch an abandoned baby animal because then it stands less of a chance of being accepted by its own kind”

    Abandoned/injured baby animals are like the number one kind of random animal people help!

  • Robotpals

    Ah, but did you DIE? QED

  • Variant

    True, my point more being that – once you help a baby animal then it is your or someone’s entire responsibility. It is humanity’s responsibility after that point, and were humanity to decide to give up on that creature before it aged to a hardened adulthood and learned some street smarts, it would essentially be useless in the real world. Some still are. Dogs and cats run away and die all the time cause they thought they knew something they didn’t. Anyway my metaphor is starting to break down really – but here’s one. Perhaps if humanity’s incessant saving and obsessiveness over cats wasn’t so extreme, 90% of all humankind wouldn’t have a parasite in their brain permanently that alters behavioral patterns in ways we aren’t even sure about. It’s more harmful, by the way to people with weak immune systems (something that might be a bit more common than you think). Now, this is just to illustrate that – saving baby cats off the side of the road? It was only good for cats, see. And parasites.

  • Olebole

    Deathstalker 2 would’ve been a great pic. Maybe next time…

  • Propranolol50mgonceadayforever

    I did a little bit. Inside 🙁 The day wasn’t a TOTAL washout though, as i know one of the runners on that particular lot and he got me an extras part on the 80’s sitcom, Perfect Strangers. Can’t recall which episode exactly, but if you catch it, i’m the guy in the background, bleeding profusely from his groin and his face. Was a really lovely day though, the staff were all really helpful and professional AND i got my bare stomach signed by the guy who played Balki !

  • Mike Magnum

    Well Dom DeLuise was quite fit in his younger years. He was married in 1965 to Carol Arthur and has 3 sons. Who are all in there 40’s. But how Rich mind leaped to a theory of fat fold implantation is beyond me. Not to mention he would have to accidentally get some guys dick in his fat fold at least 3 times. And how would fat actually give birth. I think Rich never went to biology class.

  • Variant

    How come no one ever brought up Flyin Ryan during the Skateboard Kid? Those flying scenes were basically identical in quality and execution.

  • goodmatt10 1

    If you had hit “Deathstalker 2” you would have found that diamond in the rough.

  • LameSame

    So, this is totally gonna get deleted, but, like… RLM went SLIGHTLY downhill when Je-uh-Jasper disappeared, right? I feel like it did.

  • Malevolence

    Did they ever make a Godfather knockoff and had him play as Don DeLuise… I feel like they should have

  • TurnandRun

    It’s healthy to show contempt for your audience.

  • Variant

    Is it more or less rapey than Deathstalker 1?

  • Variant

    Shortly afterward this person had an aneurysm.

  • goodmatt10 1

    Haha, less, but it makes up for the lack of rape with humor.

  • Olebole

    Indeed. They also have another main actor. I would’ve loved to see RLM comment on THAT fight scene. 😀

  • John Whatmeworry

    They did, in Robin Hood: Men In Tights.

  • John Whatmeworry

    That Jesse Ventura ‘slacked jawed faggots’ bit intercut with the Grand Funk Railroad song was priceless. Laughed my ass off.

  • Jegsimmons

    not even close

  • goodmatt10 1

    Hmmm, looks like they removed our other convo, guess it was getting to off topic. Oh well.

  • Olebole

    Less rapey, more silly.

  • Variant

    Sounds like an improvement

  • Variant

    Well I was systematically removing all of my comments as we went through them, but when I went to do that to the last one I made it wasn’t there, so yeah something like that I think.

  • wiggle

    It’s also pretty good for people in the ‘not being a callous arsehole’ sense.

  • Well, what I read was that it’s commonly transferred through cat feces, so either what I read is wrong or most cat owners could potentially get it by cleaning up after their pet. If that’s the pseudo-science you’re referring to then fine – but my point is that “being a decent person” means different things to different people. Some people value all life equally, and some people are more focused on emphasizing care for our own species – or even more specifically just their own kin. All viewpoints are valid, however you can only bend others to your will so far. If we met actual aliens in real life there would be some debate as to how much we can empathize with or understand them. By saving an alien species you might also feel somewhat responsible for its future acts as a whole. What if they become the next space nazis? You never know.
