Mystery Science Theater 3000: SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL   Rewatch 
February 27, 2019 7:21 PM - Season 6, Episode 14 - Subscribe

Rewatch! What would Airplane! be if it weren't played for laughs, like, at ALL? It'd be a lot like San Francisco International, a pilot for a TV series heavily inspired by the movies that inspired Airplane!, like Zero Hour and the various Airports. So come back with us and linger in a place that most people want to pass through as quickly as possible. Previously.

I recall that the three-letter designation for Los Angeles International is LAX, earning it the ironic nickname of "EX-LAX", since, unlike the laxative by that brand name, it made NOTHING flow through smoothly (which is probably why the TV show wasn't set at L.A.Int'l.

Somewhere there is an entire vault of Quinn-Martin productions and it would make an ideal season of MST3K.

Like the Quinn Martin Nature Preserve, only 12 hours long.
