Film watched: The Green Slime.
This episode provides examples of:
Ashcan Copy: This "episode" largely served as a trial run of the baseline concepts of the show. There is no riffing during the brief theater segments, as only a few moments are spent there before returning to the host segments.
Enforced Method Acting: Joel's obvious sleepiness, here the result of him and the rest of the crew working on no sleep after having built the robot props the night before, ended up as a regular aspect of his performance.
