Mystery Science Theater 3000: THE GIRL IN LOVERS LANE
June 8, 2016 10:04 PM - Season 5, Episode 9 - Subscribe

"Too young to know... to reckless to care..." A couple of dumb drifters drift into town. In the process they become attached to local girls, but eventually tragedy strikes. Watch out for the bummer ending to this one. Compared the the string of excellent episodes before it, this one's a bit of a sleeper, but there are still some great bits, including "Camera three get off the track," and the beloved MST song "What a Pleasant Journey!" There are just three Joel episodes left.... YouTube (1h32m) Premiered September 18, 1993.

It was a better episode than I was expecting! I'd always just sort of coasted through it before, but this time the movie and the riffing clicked for me.

Next week is 510 THE PAINTED HILLS, a Lassie movie by a different name! BTW, if you want an Imzy invite I've got a few now, and the Imzy MST3K forum is basically empty, with like 25 members (probably because they're still in all-invite mode). Lemme know if you want an invite!
