Lee Van Cleef and Timoty Van Patten are back in this "sequel" to their last "movie" about a ninja and his apprentice battling evil wherever they go. During the breaks, Joel and the Bots dabble in improv with hard suggestions from Gypsy, though their act beats the Mads' improv by a mile. To cope with the improv fiasco, the Mads introduce the Buffet Conveyor Belt to help bring the buffet right to the table while Joel and the Bots introduce the Gerbilsphere 2, though the results doesn't quite justify the labor. Later, the Bots introduce their ideas for custom vans based off of Van Patten's from the "movie" and Crow is General Timothy Van Patten. Tom then provides ideas for animal sidekicks for all the fictional TV detectives out there. In the end, Joel introduces the Lee Van Cleef dress up doll (complete with love handles) and Frank insists that ABC bring back "The Second Hundred Years" before Dr. Forrester bashes in his head.

Master Ninja = Brilliant
19 January 2013 | by thegoodbyeradiobandSee all my reviews

This and Master Ninja I combine to form my favorite MST3K episodes ever.

Lee Van Cleef, an elderly Lee Van Cleef to boot, plays a ninja. Enough said.

Tim Van Patten plays his "cool" and "attractive" young sidekick.

The riffs are top notch and the film (actually two episodes of the failed 80's show, The Master) is goofy beyond belief. Guest stars range from Demi Moore to Claude Akins.

A must watch for any MST3K fan, particularly if you like their TV movie episodes. For context, my other favorite episodes are: Mitchell, Santa Claus, Gamera vs. Guiron, San Francisco International, High School Bigshot, Fugitive Alien II, The Lost Continent and Warrior of the Lost World. But, I seriously love the series in general. Master Ninja I and II are what got me hooked for good.
