'Pod People' seems to begin as three or four different films, as Joel and The Bots (J&TB) note with some confusion. The threads begin to knit together, though, as various folks suffer sudden and mysterious deaths in the foggy woods. Could 'Trumpy' -- our cute little ol' space alien hellbeast with telekinetic powers -- be involved?
This bizarre movie prompts J&TB to some great riffing. But the host segments are where this episode really shines. The parody of an unintelligible song by the film's talentless rock band ... the 'Music from Some Guys in Space' broadcast and Crow's New Age Yanni lick ... the exploding guitar in the Invention Exchange ... and the timeless classic 'Clowns in the Sky' at the end -- all these and more make 'Pod People' one of my very favorite MST episodes.
