My Rating: **1/2 Stars/5

Doctor Forrester's funding has been cut off, and as he waits for the Satellite of Love to crash, he sends Mike and the Bots Laserblast (1978). Can our heroes escape to the edge of the Universe? More importantly, can they figure out why Leonard Maltin gave the film 2½ stars? Honestly This Episode Has Some Moments Of Insanity Like Mike Turning Into A Middleaged Woman & Tom & Crow Changing A Gigantic Baby But Overall This Is A Pretty Good Episode. My Favourite Part Is During The Sex Scene When Tom Yells Out "WHAT IS THAT?" I Honestly Could Not Stop Laughing At That.

This Episode Also Proves My Theory That Leonard Maltin Is An Unreliable Critic, Particularly When Laserblast Is On The Bottom 100. Since I Have A Copy Of His Book I Will Do What The MST3K Guys Did & Find Films "The Same As Laserblast" FILMS THE SAME AS LASERBLAST ACCORDING TO LM (Updated): Serenity (2005) Underworld (2003) Pirates Of The Caribbean (2003) Scary Movie (2000) Batman (1989) Mystery Men (1999) Do you trust his opinion? Thought So MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATRE 3000: THE MOVIE: 3 Stars Only Marginally Better Than Laserblast You Can Tell I Had Fun Doing This Can't You?
