Film watched: ''Film/RevengeOfTheCreature''
This episode marked several changes. It was the first episode aired on the SciFiChannel, and the first to have Bill Corbett play Crow.
!!The MysteryScienceTheater3000 presentation contains examples of:
-->'''Bobo:''' Your movie this week is ''Film/RevengeOfTheCreature''. It is a see-QUELL to ''Film/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon''.
* AccidentalMisnaming: Crow keeps forgetting Mike's name.
* AllThereInTheManual: Bobo and company's headquarters went unnamed on-screen, but was called "Deep Ape" by the crew.
* AvengingTheVillain: Pearl vows to keep the experiments going in memory of Clayton... who she killed.
* ContinuityNod: When the "music supervision" credit comes up and some familiar-sounding organ music is heard:
-->'''Tom:''' Pfft...yeah, great supervision: 'Gimme a needle-drop on some ''ThisIslandEarth'' music.'
* DevelopingDoomedCharacters: Lampshaded by Mike:
-->'''Mike:''' ''[almost an hour into the movie]'' Ladies and gentlemen - the Revenge has ''finally'' begun!
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: For the Sci-Fi Channel era, the concept of Pearl in pursuit of the Satellite in her wagon isn't there yet (although it's mentioned in the themesong), and Bill Corbett's stiff performance as Crow is a little awkward to see.
** According to the Guide, Bill was trying to do an impression of Trace Beaulieu's Crow. After a few episodes, they told him to just use his natural voice.
* HelloNurse: Invoked as the Creature's reaction to Lori Nelson in her underwear:
-->'''Crow:''' "Okay, I think I'm over her now. AI CHIHUAHUA!"
* HeyItsThatGuy: [[invoked]] Invoked by the crew.
-->'''Crow:''' [[ClintEastwood Oh, he's bad. This is his first and last film.]]
* IAmNotWeasel: Professor Bobo, a mountain gorilla, takes great offense to Servo calling him "Mr. Orangutan".
-->'''Peanut:''' ...and I'm Peanut!
-->'''Bobo:''' ''Doctor'' Peanut! (''*[[DopeSlap smack]]*'')
* InterspeciesRomance: Apes rule the world because of many marriages between humans and apes. Much to Mike's irritation, each case involved a descendant of his.
* ItWillNeverCatchOn: "[[Creator/ClintEastwood Oh, he's bad.]] This is his first and last film."
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Crow completely forgets who Mike is, while remembering everyone else. (Though the concept of the experiments is also lost on him.)
* NoodleIncident: Crow won the original two Nanites at a fair.
* OffingTheOffspring: Pearl smothered Clayton.
* OhTheHumanity: During the movie:
-->'''Servo:''' Oh, the tepidity.
* TheOtherDarrin: The debut of Bill Corbett as Crow, replacing Trace Beaulieu. Deliberately called attention to -- Mike and Servo both feel there's something "different" about Crow, but can't quite put their finger on it, and Crow himself has no memory of their past experiences with Dr. Forrester.
** FridgeBrilliance: Crow's different voice and oddly stiff movements can easily be explained by his sitting in the satellite reading a magazine for 500 years with no mechanical maintenance whatsoever.
* ReactiveContinuousScream: When the SOL crew and Bobo first encounter each other via the monitors.
* ResetButton: The season 7 finale "Laserblast" ended with Mike, Tom, Crow, and Gypsy turning into pure energy and exiting the SOL. However, since the show got picked up again, they had to come back to the ship and revert to their original forms.
* SanitySlippage / FridgeHorror: Crow got bored of being pure energy almost immediately and stayed on the S.O.L. alone most of the time for 500 years.
* ShoutOut: Through the window in Deep Ape, we can see [[PlanetOfTheApes the ruins of the Statue of Liberty]].
* TakeOverTheWorld: Crow says the Nanites' ultimate goal is universal domination. Mike doesn't seem to care.
* TimeSkip: It's been over 500 years since the last episode.
