Storyline

The power goes out on the SOL, to which Servo and Crow take full advantage of by looting the satellite. Pearl unveils her plan to take over the world one person at a time and spontaneously starts off with Servo. While dealing with bad cases of Hockey Hair (to which Mike is conveniently immune), Servo defends Canada's honor with a song of tribute, which eventually turns violent when Mike and Crow join in. Mike's immunity to Hockey Hair leads to a case of Grizzled Old Prospector Syndrome and the bots form a muffin-based sewing circle cult while still remembering the need for human sacrifices. Meanwhile, Pearl almost takes over her first follower before he's suddenly taken over by the Traveler's Group. Written by Titus Yorick.

Hysterical
11 June 2008 | by ametaphysicalsharkSee all my reviews

"The Final Sacrifice" makes me ashamed to be Canadian and more specifically ashamed to be Albertan. I've always thought MST3k had a great feel of improvisation about it and this feel is so strong here that I doubt all of the lines here were written before the show was recorded.

This movie, from the acclaimed director of numerous 'making of' featurettes, Greidanus, the descendant of many great anuses is so hilariously incompetent in every manner imaginable that it's actually boring at times. Yes, boring. You actually feel bored if the bots shut up for a short while. It's THAT bad.

The riffs here are classic. Can't deny that. They range from clever jokes about Alberta (which worked well for this Albertan) to hilariously mean-spirited remarks about the film.

Classic MST3k.

10/10
