Mystery Science Theater 3000: THE GIANT SPIDER INVASION   Rewatch 
February 24, 2022 4:13 PM - Season 8, Episode 10 - Subscribe

It's a re-rewatch of savings at Menards! A terrible person finds the egg of a space-spider, and finds out it's full of diamond-like crystals. Also, he's awful to his wife, he's one of the more loatheable characters in MST history. The spider eventually kills the guy and goes on to terrorize the town. Packers win the Super Bowl, whooo! It's a fun episode. In subplot news, it's pod people time. Previously and again.

Watching the scene where the terrible cracker dude leaves his mistress/sex worker and she runs out to remind him to put on his truss, all I could think was, "Someone actually wrote this. Someone thought this was worth filming."

Another little tidbit: while searching Roku to see where this episode was streaming for free, I found out that there is apparently a Director's Cut of The Giant Spider Invasion, just in case you want more of Alan Hale embarrassing himself on screen.
