Daddy-O is another winner for season 3. The characters are all dickweeds so I'm glad the riffing is so tight (I don't think I could have handled Contino's attitude or his pants without them)
I also think this has some of the best collection of host segments in the series. The Hike up you pants song is priceless and the recreation of the 'want some' bit is another high point.
I can see my way to rewarding it with an A

I watched this episode so much that I had to take a break from it... well now a few months later I was able to enjoy this classic again. Man I love this episode, I love how the brains tear apart the conry slang and mock the character Bruce. I also think the riffing is sharp and great just like everything else from season 3 (except Fu-mancu) Great episode and the button bit is genius.

A review of the film score from a John Williams web page. Ths was the first film score for artist best known for his work on Jaws and Star Wars.

I give it a 'B'. But it does have my favorite mad scientist segments, especially the ending (which is my all time favorite MST3K ending).....
That David Letterman look alike freaked me out too much....

Decent enough installment, but sort of takes season 3 for a bit of a dip. Really the first so-so episode; not bad considering a really good streak of 6 ahead of it.

Another not seen for years episode for me. Loved Joel's invention, not for the invention but to hear joel say all those words about baby crap. I also think the alien baby face hugger is freakin cool. I wonder how many of those young men shown in the short of the military academy found themselves in the Korean war. Can you imagine anyone in the US ARMY today flying in a ballon? This is a great short, weird snippets of life in the earliy 1950's, it seems almost prehistoric compared to today.
This one of the handful of episodes that have all the commercials intact. It was recorded in 1996. Al Franken shows up in a promo for some special he is doing. I see Sinbad too, boy did he drop off the map.
During the the first "rock" number there is a huge und editing gap. That is just plain sloppy editing. Just think which would rather hear in 1958? Dick Contino here or a young 18 year old John Lennon in his skiffle band? My choice is always going to be John.
Drag racing for pizza? They sure were wild back then. TAIL O' THE PUP! Talk about a cultural icon. The story kinda just limps along but the cars and girls are pretty and nice to look at. ;)
Bruce reminds me of Quentin Tarantino.
Stupid dvd won't play very well beyond the meeting with the spanish captain, it keep freezing and jumping backwards. :furious:
I somehow got the disc to play and it was nice to see the great closing credits with TV's Frank and DR. Forrester's battle with the button did mot have the dreaded voice over.
A good episode but not a great episode for me. The genre is not one of my favorites. Middle aged teenagers, cops and drug dealers aint my bag. Dig it, Daddy-o! I can only give this a B+.

A lot of the problems in this movie could have been solved if the main character just had a little bit of backbone! This guy apparently curls into the fetal position anytime he is challenged and gives into the demands of a far-sighted douche and a stupid woman who can't drive. Then he sings... and looks like a total moron! Alright, so not a bad episode, but not exactly a laugh-riot. I'll give it the benefit of the doubt because it had some good host segments, other than that grown-man baby at the beginning, that was slightly disturbing and not funny in the least. I loved Joel's spoof on the song with his trousers pulled all the way up. Though I had slight issues with this episode, it was still funny enough to keep me plenty entertained.
