Recap: Mystery Science Theater 3000 S 03 E 11 It Conquered The World
Films watched: Snow Thrills (short) and It Conquered the WorldSnow Thrills is a short about winter sports.
The Mystery Science Theater 3000 presentation contains these tropes:
- Getting Crap Past the Radar: Crow makes the following remark during the "human polar bear" part of the short.Crow: Let's talk about shrinkage, shall we?
Narrator: Fast becoming one of the most popular winter sports is shiing (skiing). And "shiing" is the proper pronunciation, they tell us.Joel: Yeah, well you're full of skit.
- Also from Snow Thrills:
- Keep Circulating the Tapes: Number two of the infamous "Susan Hart Four". The un-riffed version of the film hasn't even seen a release in several years.
- Padding: The song about celebrity siblings with shared last names. Joel persuades the 'bots to go along with it because the movie was relatively short and they needed to fit the episode's running time.
- Running Gag: The host and his robots poke a lot of fun at Peter Graves' closing speech...in the span of the episode ending.
Dr. Paul Nelson: He learned almost too late that man is a ''feeling'' creature ... and because of it, the greatest in the universe. He learned too late for himself that men have to find their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can't be any gift of perfection from outside ourselves. And when men seek such perfection, they find only death... fire... loss... disillusionment... the end of everything that's gone forward. Men have always sought an end to the toil and misery, but it can't be given, it has to be achieved! There is hope, but it has to come from inside, from man himself.
