The last episode featuring Joel Hodgson as comedic curator of the Satellite of Love, MST3K: Mitchell introduces Mike Nelson as Frank and Dr. Forrester's auditor. Typically film-and-literature-aware, this episode features mispronounced Latin dramatic phrases and the onscreen replacement of the show's host and 'bots-creator Joel with newly presented Mike. Kubrick fans will appreciate the homage by Gypsy on the spaceship, as the scientists continue their evil hi-jinx remotely. Meanwhile, Mitchell proves to be a winner of the "wacka-chicka" award, as Joel and the robots survive their viewing of the 1970s detective feature. ~ Sarah Sloboda, All Movie Guide

Not the sort of movie you'd expect from the Satellite of Love, and it certainly has a few slow spots for the crew, but it remains a surprisingly hilarious outing. Also a bit bittersweet, as it is the farewell episode for Joel Hodgson (still my favorite of the show's two human hosts, although Mike was also great). But how they handle his departure is quite amusing. The film itself is a forgettable old bloated cop drama (the cop is bloated, not the story), in which you'll see more of Joe Don Baker than you ever would've imagined (or hoped). A ton of great wisecracks from Joel and the 'bots here ("There's some chips in the couch, help yourself") make this an important entry in the MST canon.
