YMMV / Mystery Science Theater 3000 S 08 E 21 Time Chasers

  • Crowning Moment of Funny:
    • Nick heroically jumping into Robertson's plane —complete with one-liner— and instantly whizzing it:
    Nick: You're grounded! [Gets punched in the face.]
    Crow: ...And it's all over!
    Tom: "...But I chased you on a horse! I'm supposed to wi-hi-hiiiinn!"
    • The bad guys pulling over and picking up bikes to continue chasing Nick:
    Tom: Aha, so it's bicycles then, is it? We accept your choice of vehicle! Enguarde!"
    • The guy who comes out running after Nick when his car is stolen:
    Tom: "Wait, the clutch kinda sticks, and one door doesn't close, and you have to jiggle it to get it into reverse!"
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment:
    • Mike and the Bots mock the "future" world of 2041, as the only things that seem different from the present day (1994) is that the children are fatter and they all have cell phones. I Want My Jetpack, indeed.
    • Crow jokes about searching for Cameron Diaz nude pictures on the internet. This was a few years before a sleazy person attempted to get her to pay him millions for pictures and video from an S&M photo shoot she did before she became famous. The footage was eventually leaked onto the Internet.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The film's showing on Mystery Science Theater 3000 actually did cause Castleton State College T-shirts to become popular with the fandom. The Nick Miller haircut still seems less popular, though.
  • I Want My Jetpack: 2041 underwhelms Mike and the 'Bots.
    Servo: So, fifty years from now it'll be... three years from now.
    Mike: (flatly) The, uh...future.
  • Fridge Horror: In the alternate Eddie timeline, Joel leaves his robot children with an outwardly abusive asshole instead of a nice Every Man. And presumbly hasn't tried to rescue them from Eddie yet...
