This is one of the episodes that got anime fans angry at MST3K. The resulting drama made an already great episode even more enjoyable for me.
EXPLANATION: In both this episode and Invasion of the Neptune Men, they made a couple of jokes about anime and several about Japan in general. Some of the more obsessed anime fans did not appreciate this. Accusations of racism were thrown at MST3K, which caused other anime fans to get angry. This resulted in a hilarious Internet Mini-Schism that gave me many days of laughs.
Watching this episode helps me to remember that and, as a result, makes it more entertaining.
"Couldn't they have considered conquering one of the Earth's GOOD nations?"
MST3K has it's share of annoying and/or creepy fans. The obnoxious uber-geeks who thought Joel Hodgson's statement "The right people will get it" meant that only super-geniuses like themselves could truly appreciate MST3K, the people who never forgave [Hodgson/Beaulieu/Coniff] for leaving and dedicated themselves to hating them and the other fans for "blindly accepting" this "slap in the face" to the "true fans" or dedicated themselves to blaming and hating their replacements for being usurpers, and there were people who wrote erotic MST3K fanfiction.
And yes, I remember the sort of online arguments and flamewars that CN does. It was really stupid and sometimes part of the tiresome Joel vs. Mike flamewars ala "Joel would have never allowed this racist filth on his watch! All Mike and Kevin Murphy do is make fun of the countries certain movies were made in, those racists!"

I love the way those guys say karaoke. Karokee gets a giggle out of me every time. Psht. Minnesotans (or whatever--it doesn't matter exactly where).
I like it, I like it very much.

"Oh Krankor blew up a potential tackler on the 40 and now there's nothing but daylight!"
It's hard to enjoy this episode that much when Space Mutiny is just a few episodes away.
Make it B-KAWK!
