Film watched: ''Film/TheBladeMaster'' aka ''Cave Dwellers''

Like ''Film/PodPeople'', this film featured an opening credit sequence that took scenes from a different movie. O'Keefe was allegedly amused by the show's take on the film and called Best Brains (MST3K's production company) to personally request a copy of the episode. It is one of the most popular episodes of the series. The MST3K version of the movie is available in both VHS and DVD formats. This movie is often cited as the movie you want to introduce somebody to the concept of [=MST3k=] and riffing on movies in general.

Compare with ''Film/DeathstalkerAndTheWarriorsFromHell'' and ''Film/QuestOfTheDeltaKnights''.

!The ''MysteryScienceTheater3000'' presentation has examples of:
* CatchPhrase: [[MemeticMutation "How much Keefe is in this movie?" "Miles O'Keefe"]]
** [=AKA=] "Miles O'Beef"
** Quoth Mary Jo Pehl: "Every inch of Miles is a mile I want to travel." Or something to that effect.
** Side-note: Every time they have a chance, [=MST=]ies in {{MST}}ing fanfics of ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]]'' will recycle this joke. "How much Brien is in this story?" "Miles O'Brien!"
* FreudianSlipperySlope
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: "It's Speedy Delivery Guy, and has he got a package!"
* HoYay: [[invoked]] Mike Nelson in the ''Amazing Colossal Guide'' gets disturbingly lyrical about O'Keefe's bod.
* HypocriticalHumor: "Mockery is the ignorant man's weapon."
* RunningGag:
** Joel getting Thong's name wrong.
** "Dad?"
** "No-o!"
* TemptingFate: Servo complains at the end of the episode that this was 'the worst movie' the Mads had ever sent them.

** This is also a reference to a frequent situation in the writer's room. Often someone would state that the film they were currently writing for was the "worst movie ever" only to be proven wrong in the future.
* YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe: The reaction by Joel and the 'bots to Ator's ''modern'' hang glider.
-->'''Servo:''' Oh, come ''on.''
-->'''Crow:''' What the…?!
-->''(Servo laughs)''
-->'''Joel:''' [[SarcasmMode Terrific.]] ''(childlike voice)'' I'm the luckiest boy in the world! I have slipped the surly bounds of Earth and touched the hand of God!
-->'''Servo:''' This is a little ridiculous. Okay, so... he kills a deer, he tans the hides, he stretches the skins, he makes an anodized aluminum frame, he learns how to extrude and weld… all in about five minutes, huh? ... [[BrickJoke learned aerodynamics...]]
