The boys on the Satellite of Love are treated to a low point in '70s sexploitation in a low-cut, cleavage-inspired rip-off ofCharlie's Angels. "So these were the Carter years?" inquires Mike Nelson as he views a team of bouffant-haired vixens in jumpsuits storming a drug compound. "Well, I do sense a malaise here," responds robot Tom Servo.Angels Revengeinspires the castaways to recall a nonstop list of long-forgotten B-list '70s movies and television shows, includingThe A-Team,Sanford and Son,James at 15,The Bad News Bears, andFantasy Island. It also inspires Crow to write his own blaxploitation screenplay. The dull action sequences and uninspired plot is barely shadowed by the obvious reasonAngelswas made: "All right, I'm just giving in and looking at the breasts!" quips Crow.

Mike agrees: "This is offending one-celled animals." We can thankMST3Kfor dredging up this cinematic dreck, only made endurable by Mike, Tom Servo, and Crow's hilarious running commentary.--Tod Nelson

These include 'Time of the Apes,' 'Agent from H.A.R.M.,' neither of which have been released on video so far as I know, and this one, 'Angels' Revenge.' Part of the humor is the dawning realization that the makers of this epic really were shameless enough to attempt such an obvious rip-off of a hit TV series. Even the title doesn't have the …
