Funny: "Manos" The Hands of Fate

  • The Manos episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 is widely considered the show's best episode by numerous fans; it's also the most well-known episode of the show by a wide margin.
  • Betty Pierce's November 16, 1966 movie review from the El Paso Herald-Post — likely the only pre-MST3K review of Manos — is loaded to the core with hilarious snark. Some of the highlights include pointing out continuity errors and making poor Torgo out to be the film's hero. The review ends, "Someone is spoofing us."
    Reviewer: "The story concerns a luckless young man with his underwear so bunched up he can hardly get around and no time to straighten it out....."
  • This is schadenfreude, but the way Torgo walks to get the bags.
