Mystery Science Theater 3000: PARTS: THE CLONUS HORROR   Rewatch 
March 3, 2022 6:02 PM - Season 8, Episode 11 - Subscribe

Re-rewatch! The evil organization of this movie raises dumb clones of important people, like senators, to serve as sources of spare body parts. It was the kind of movie premise that seemed plausible in 1979, I guess. What happens when the senator gets voted out? Costs a lot of money to keep a clone in feed when it might not even be needed. In subplot news, Pearl and minions babysit a trio of god children. Previously, and again.

...And in 2005 and again in 2010.

I would wager that a significant percentage of American voters would still find it pretty damn plausible.

This flick contains the line "Who were those turkeys?" which is about as 1970s as can be... and also has a "judo range," where presumably, judo is practiced.
