Mystery Science Theater 3000: CODE NAME: DIAMOND HEAD   Rewatch 
June 17, 2021 12:25 AM - Season 6, Episode 8 - Subscribe

Re-rewatch! This episode is more popular than I suspected, partly on the strength, perhaps, of its short, A Day at the Fair. The movie itself is a spy-themed made-for-TV thing, made by Quinn Martin, originally intended as an NBC series pilot. The plot has to do with a couple of people trying to protect a deadly gas that can kill people on contact, which is indeed pretty deadly. It sounds impossible to work with. The host segments spotlight MST3K's least-considered regular character: Magic Voice. Previously and again.

I’ve cracked their code. I think it’s Diamond Head.

The fact that Mr. "Nice Skull" was a finalist to be captain of the Enterprise is consistently entertaining to me.
