Storyline

The power goes out on the SOL, to which Servo and Crow take full advantage of by looting the satellite. Pearl unveils her plan to take over the world one person at a time and spontaneously starts off with Servo. While dealing with bad cases of Hockey Hair (to which Mike is conveniently immune), Servo defends Canada's honor with a song of tribute, which eventually turns violent when Mike and Crow join in. Mike's immunity to Hockey Hair leads to a case of Grizzled Old Prospector Syndrome and the bots form a muffin-based sewing circle cult while still remembering the need for human sacrifices. Meanwhile, Pearl almost takes over her first follower before he's suddenly taken over by the Traveler's Group. Written by Titus Yorick.

Sacrifice of Your Time
29 November 2018 | by hellraiser7See all my reviews

This episode is one of my honorable mentions, this is some pitiful attempt at making a fantasy film which is rather absent from this film much like its budget, let alone the story makes little sense. In a way the film is true to its title because that's exactly what it does with your time.

But this episode is really funny, really like how the MST crew are making some jokes about Canada but mainly the name of one of the main protagonists which I'll admit has to be the oddest name I've ever heard that last name that sounds like someone just crunched a bunch of random words together. There are a lot of memorable riffs here, though two favorite moments are a scene where the protagonist Zap is being chased on a steep hill by the hooded cultists and the MST crew, they all huff and puff, I'll admit hearing that makes me tired. But another is Crow trying to pitch the film as a TV series to Mike which cracks me up, I could think of better films to make into a TV series.

However, the highlight of the episode was hearing the MST crew sing "The Canada Song" it is just fraking hilarious this is one of my favorite songs from the crew and it's up there in my book with the "Blame Canada" song from "South Park". It was also hilarious seeing Tom in a Mounty outfit and get really carried away with the song.

Rating: 4 stars
