* If the Mads are trying to find a movie that's so bad they can use it to take over the world by showing Joel a bunch of awful movies, wouldn't all the terrible movies sort of wear him down slowly and they'd need to show all the movies to people to break them (Yeah, [=MST3K=] Mantra, but I'm not the only one over thinking things here)?
** [[WordOfGod Forrester is a man whose passion for depravity far exceeds his aptitude.]] In short: any flaw in the Mad's plans can be attributed to their insanity and lack of forethought.

** Mike is a clean-cut blond and writing room overachiever whose incisive wit and verbal precision leads to ''tremendously'' polished riffing. Joel brown-haired memetic stoner and unfathomable oddball whose comedy is so far out of left field that even when it doesn't work, it is a wonder to behold. In an ideal world they'd still be working together, but since they aren't, the BettyAndVeronica contrast makes it tempting to take sides.

* One thing that's gotten on my mind lately; why couldn't Joel and Mike just worked together? I mean it'd be understandable if Joel had other commitments, but [[WhatCouldHaveBeen think about what could have happened.]] I even wrote a theme new theme song for the ocasion. What do you think?

** Because it's the one part that's completely irrelevant. In ANY story, it's a given that the characters will survive long enough to finish the plot, no matter how unlikely or ridiculous it is, and so the writers shouldn't feel obligated to give that any detail. Basically, the viewer needs to know why Joel (or Mike) is in space watching movies he doesn't like, or else they will not be invested. What Joel/Mike eats and breathes, however, is not important. Whether they order pizza, cannibalize, or photosynthesize, they are still that guy who sits in space and watches bad movies. When you ask questions like, "Okay, but what does he ''eat''?", you've stopped thinking of it as a show, and thus, the writer no longer has anything for you, because you're just missing the point of what they're trying to do. And THAT'S what "It's just a show; you should really just relax" is supposed to mean.

*** The Mads did have a vested interest in keeping Joel and Mike alive, after all- if they died, they'd have to keep finding new people to replace them with, or they would have to give up on the experiment. The Mads didn't really care about whether Joel/Mike died, but they didn't want their work to be a waste. As Bobo says, "If we don't help them, then they'll die and we won't have anybody to play with!"

*** Maybe Mirror-Tom has seen "Last of the Wild Horses" of his own volition. He's obviously a fan of the genre...

* In episode #611, ''LastOfTheWildHorses'', the evil mirror-universe Tom Servo is stuck in the theater with prime universe Crow and Mike, until the last act, when the prime Servo comes back into the theater. Though he had spent the entire episode trapped in mirror-Deep 13, he seems to automatically know what's going on the film, who the characters are, and even picks up on the running gags. How?

**** I always just figured the 'special parts' he used were the electronics that actually made the bots, you know, move and talk and stuff. Their bodies were just cobbled together out of some of the random junk lying around the SOL.

** [[DontExplainTheJoke Although I probably shouldn't do this,]] I'll clarify the above: SOL = "Shit Outta Luck." Similarly, the ship being bone-shaped could be a reference to the crew's being, as [[{{Futurama}} another show]] would say, "boned."
