Recap: Mystery Science Theater 3000 S 09 E 09 Gorgo
Film watched: Gorgo

The MST3K presentation contains examples of:

  • Big "Shut Up!": Tom gives one when the obnoxious reporter gives one navel contemplating monologue too many.
  • The Cameo: Leonard Maltin appears to advise Pearl on what bad movies to show Mike and the bots. He recommends this, though he confesses to liking it himself (having given it an above-average rating in his movie guide), although it supposedly put some of his assistants into intensive care..
  • Contemplate Our Navels: A reporter repeatedly gives speeches of this nature during the film's climax, much to Mike and the Bots' annoyance.
    Crow: WOULD YOU DIE?!
  • Continuity Nod
    Crow: Hi, I'm Gorgo - but I'm not Mormo of the thousand-faced moon.
  • Empathy Doll Shot:
    Mike: (as the shot cuts to tanks) Now tanks are brought in to roll over the doll!
  • Inherently Funny Words: "Dorkin."
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: A particularly infamous example. The episode aired only twice (on the same day) before MGM filed a copyright claim and it never aired again. But happily, Shout Factory has finally obtained the rights and it's been announced for the upcoming volume 28 box set!
  • Mike Nelson, Destroyer of Worlds: This time Mike accidentally brings chaos to the Nanites' circus (with Nate the Clown) by dropping a few quarters, causing death & freeing the wild animals.
    • Fridge Horror: This is the last episode where the nanites appear, and they're never mentioned again.
  • Shout-Out: When the boat is being rocked by the volcanic eruption at the start of the film:
    Crow: Mike, Servo? For what its worth, my heart will go on.
  • Visible Boom Mic: Rare for MST 3 K - at 9 minutes in, Servo says "Hey, Mike Nelson!" and Mike says "Hey, Tom Servo!". When Mike turns his head you can see his microphone sticking out in front of his mouth.
    • Though it's not that rare, you can actually see it in most Mike episodes. They even have one for Robot Mike in Prince of Space!
