Joel and his robot friends, Tom Servo and Crow, are marooned on the derelict Satellite of Love and forced to watch horrendously lousy movies. In this episode, they're subjected to this inexplicably titled film--the subterranean denizens appear for all of two confusing minutes and add absolutely nothing to the plot. Not that there's much of a plot to add to. Miles O'Keefe stars as the warrior Ator, whose bare chest and loincloth prompt Crow to ask, "How much Keefe is in this movie?" Tom and Joel answer, "Miles O'Keefe." Ator, his buckskin-clad babe, and a scrawny martial-arts sidekick--à la Kato--try to save civilization (though no one appears to be too civilized) from a superweapon called--get this--a "Geometric Nucleus." "Why do they have such fancy names for stupid things?" wonders Crow. Even though Ator can't muster up a pair of pants, he does manage to construct a hang glider in five minutes from a bunch of sticks. On top of all that, the bad guy looks like some demented cross between Doug Henning and Sonny Bono and is just about as threatening. And the cut-rate, low-budget special effects inspire a hilarious rant from the boys. All of which makes for anMST3Kclassic.--Tod Nelson

MST3K's third season was from end to end an almost unbroken string of great performances -- some of the Brains' best and most consistent work ever. Show 301, 'Cave Dwellers,' was the leadoff hitter. All MSTies need this episode on the video shelf.'Cave Dwellers' is a pseudo-caveman, vaguely Gor-like, Conan the Somewhat Unpolished, Ridley Scott on a really, really, bad day kind of flick. Hubcaps double for armored breastplates. Our Hero Ator, played by the incomparable Miles O'Keefe, throws together …
