Recap: Mystery Science Theater 3000 Pilot The Green Slime
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.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Lots.
  • 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.
  • The Pilot
  • The Unintelligible: Rather than Tom Servo, Joel and Crow are joined by Beeper, who speaks in beeps that Crow has to translate. The reasons this was changed for the series should be pretty obvious.
