YMMV / Mystery Science Theater 3000 S 04 E 16 Fire Maidens From Outer Space

  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Joel and Crow defeating Timmy, ala Aliens.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: As an airplane makes a time-consuming landing... "Please remain seated until the movie grinds to a complete halt."
    • "My pants are split? Everyone saw?"
    • "Pad pad pad pad pad em, pad pad pad the film!"
    • (Girl screams then turns away and sobs) Crow: "I'm such a bad actress!"
  • Just Here for Godzilla: Quite unusually for the series, the host segments completely steal the show from the movie riffing, with a genuinely suspenseful story arc that even intrudes into the theater.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The opening sketch which ends with Timmy growling menacingly before attacking Cambot, as a terrified Magic Voice demands to know who he is.
    • The first few times Timmy appears in the theater are pretty creepy too. He comes in from the opposite side, and doesn't really do anything except sit there, watching the movie and occasionally looking at Joel and the 'Bots, but after the Cambot thing, you know he's there to do something. Then, after Servo shoos him away the first time, he comes in again, slowly and silently rising into view in the seat right next to Servo. It was unnerving, especially because you sort of forget about him as the episode goes on and don't expect it.
    • Because of the silhouette, it's difficult to tell exactly which way Timmy is facing and at times it seems like he's staring backwards toward the audience.
  • Padding: And padding, and padding, and padding, and padding...
    Crow: Cy Roth had to pad the film just so he could get to the parts that had more padding!
