Mystery Science Theater 3000: ALIEN FROM L.A.   Rewatch 
July 31, 2019 9:50 PM - Season 5, Episode 16 - Subscribe

Rewatch! A young lady in California learns the oft-taught movie advice that, if she takes off her glasses and musses her hair a bit, men will be more attracted to her, and it only takes a trip to a dystopian underground civilization to learn it. This movie has a certain level of similarity to the Super Mario Bros. movie. This is a fan favorite episode, only the fourth episode P.M. (Post Mitchell), and back when it first aired it was the episode that really proved, after Joel left, that the show was going to be okay. Previously

For reference, the previous time we covered this episode was only a few days over three years ago.

It's Thursday again, and that means it's time for MST Club! Our weekly viewing of MST3K and other things, which begins every Thursday at 7 PM Eastern time (4 PM Pacific). The MST episode portion of our show starts two hours in, at 9 PM Eastern (6 PM Pacific), and it happens at https://cytu.be/r/Metafilter_MST3KClub. I hope you can make it!

One of the very few MST3K films I saw in a theater before I saw it on MST3K.

(Spoiler alert: it was terrible.)

The discovery that turned up during our showing of Alien From L.A. was that the movie has a sequel.

We're trying to score a copy to show during pre-roll or post-show some week!

I haven't seen it, but given Kathy Ireland's low billing in the second movie I suspect it's more of an Alien From L.A. Cinematic Universe thing than a straight sequel.
