As Dumb as These Guys Are, How Did They Fly the Plane?
14 July 2013 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

What a mind numbing episode. A group of fliers take off to investigate an erupting volcano. The lose their altimeter which breaks like a cheap watch and are at the mercy of a dust cloud which obscures their view. The must enlist a junior high science experiment to help figure out where they are. What is really interesting is just how utterly idiotic the crew is. One of them keeps asking stupid questions like a big child. Meanwhile, an eighty something professor says to the usual attractive young woman: "Women don't get along with men who think they are smarter than them." This is a non issue. If the girl had been a pool cue, these guys wouldn't have been as smart. Many of these episode's dialogue involve questions that most anyone could answer. The weird thing is they don't have a clue. Sometimes Science Fiction Theater reminds me of those awful science films I endured in high school where a nerdy guy asks a teacher, covered in chalk dust, about some inane science concept. The only words missing are "Golly gee!"
