Recap / Mystery Science Theater 3000 S 04 E 11 The Magic Sword

Film watched: The Magic Sword

In a highly unusual admission, Joel Robinson and Tom Servo said the movie was "pretty good for a Bert I. Gordon film" during a theater segment. (Crow T. Robot seemed to disagree, but found something he liked about it too.) The writers of the show continued the praise in their Amazing Colossal Episode Guide.

The Segments:

  • Joel has decided to get into caricature artwork, and the 'Bots are his subjects. He's apparently wanted to draw Cambot naked, even though all of them are.

Segment 1/Invention Exchange
  • Joel created the Big Gulp Berets to appeal to hippies who want to attend poetry readings while enjoying a cool bottled spring water. Frank stars in a one-act play demonstrating Dr. Forrester's decorator biohazard clean-up pillows, but he's concerned about the mutated strain of dysentary he spilled on himself.

Segment 2
  • Top trainer Joel only feeds Basil Rathbones to his dogs. Packed with bits of Nigel Bruce and comes in pesto flavor!

Segment 3
  • Tom is not impressed with Joel's grand pageant based on the Middle Ages and serfs up a heaping reality check on how hard it was back then.

Segment 4
  • Crow, smitten with Estelle Winwood, sings a love ballad for her. Tom, again, feels the need to interject with counterpoints.

Segment 5
  • The film's seven curses make the crew discuss George Carlin's own naughty words. Back in Deep 13, Frank is reduced to a skeleton, creeping Dr. F out.
