Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The silhouettes are a very dark green in this episode rather than the standard black; Comedy Channel execs insisted on this experiment, worried viewers wouldn't be able to see them against the film (and thus end up confused by the riffing). Their concern makes ''some'' sense given that like most Season One experiments it's a black-and-white film, but the Best Brains gang thought it "look[ed] really stupid" according to ''The Amazing Colossal Episode Guide''.


* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: At one point Paul picks up a book and looks through it, prompting Crow to joke that it's ''The Book of Lists'':
-->'''Crow:''' (as Paul) Hmm... Roddy [=McDowall=], Milton Berl-... ''huh??!'' [[note]][=McDowall=] and Berle were both rumored as being anatomically well-endowed.[[/note]]

!!The Segments:

[[AC:Prologue]]
* Joel explains the premise of the show to some canned applause from Cambot.

[[AC:Segment 1]]
* Joel invents a circular saw that automatically turns off when it gets too close to your fingers, which he uses to play a little prank with a fake hand. The Mads have the Limb Lengthener, which Dr. Forrester demonstrates on Larry’s arm.

[[AC:Segment 2]]
* Crow goes bowling while Tom provides voiceover. When Joel suggests playing other games, Tom and Crow ditch him.

[[AC:Segment 3]]
* Joel, Crow, and Tom impersonate Creator/WilliamShatner while pretending to be choked by fake hands.

[[AC:Segment 4]]
* Crow voices his opinion that a crawling hand isn’t scary, asking what the worst a hand could do is. This comes back to bite him when a giant hand sneaks up behind him.

[[AC:Segment 5]]
* As usual, RAM chips are given for a good thing and a bad thing about the movie, and a letter is read. In Deep 13, Larry uses his new extra-long arms to strangle Dr. F, who also impersonates Shatner.


* LargeHam: Joel and the Bots spend a segment pretending to be WilliamShatner while being strangled.
