Historic episode is also quite good

Show 513, featuring 'The Brain that Wouldn't Die,' is notable primarily as the episode in which Mike ('Mike Nelson') Nelson is introduced as the new resident of the Satellite of Love and host of our program. But while Mike the host is new, Mike the writer is an MST veteran. And not only are there no first-time jitters here, the episode itself is a pretty darn good one.

The movie itself is yet another horror-inducing-severed-body-part monstrosity, in the same genre as 'The Crawling Hand' and several others. The title body-part became a semi-recurring character on the show, beloved by MSTies as 'Jan in the Pan.'

The host segments in this episode are quite good, as Mike finds his footing in his new home and builds a relationship with Crow and Tom Servo. And a gutter-bumber-chute could come in real handy here in Seattle.
