Storyline

An Evel Knievel looking space hero battles aliens from the planet Krankor in order to keep them from getting gas on Earth. Outside the theater, Crow and Tom play "Dog and Bear" until Mike intervenes when things get out of hand. Pearl pulls the Widowmaker over to let Prof. Bobo "go" but he's self-conscious about who sees him "going" so he climbs into a wormhole for privacy. Pearl decides to go after him despite Observer's objections to make sure that Prof. Bobo doesn't mess up the current time-line and she drags the SOL along with her, literally. The wormhole has unexpected effects on the Satellite though, such as knocking time off sync for everyone. It continues to have unforeseen effects by turning Mike into a puny little robot, a robot Crow and Tom find hilariously cute. It later sends them into a sylvan glen, which gives Tom hay fever. Finally out of the wormhole, the crew think everything is back to normal until Krankor visits the SOL and quickly wears out his welcome. Pearl and ... Written by Titus Yorick

Sad Sentai of Space
30 November 2018 | by hellraiser7See all my reviews

This is my seventh favorite episode of the show, this film is pretty much an old age super sentai like movie that sadly isn't very super. One of the problems is the Prince of Space is made way too powerful as he literally has no weaknesses whatsoever. The effects are terrible like that giant monster whom looked barely done as the guy is wearing no body costume except what look like leotards and a monster mask that looks like it was only half finished. But worst of all the fight and even shootout chirography is just terrible.

Other than that Mike and the rest are all in fine form, this episode just has some of the best jokes really like some of the comments on the shooting effects and the terrible dubbing and dialog.

Also, on the evil aliens where in some places they made chicken noises since the evil aliens all had beaks for noses and head gear which made them look like walking chickens not kidding. But my favorite part is when the prince escorts the scientist to safety and as doors are closing in all around them there is so much stilted and repetitive dialog, it's great when Mike and the robots say some of it, that just cracked me up.

And of course, the segments between we're funny and wacky, from the beginning when both Crow and Tom playing the game of Bear and Dog and Tom got carried away as Crow is hanging upside down, how the heck they play that game is anyone's guess.

But I really like the sequences when Mike and the Robots were fiddling with the concept of alternate realities and Mike is turned into one of the robots. Mike looks like one of the puppets for Gerry Anderson's "Thunderbirds", it's just funny how both Tom and Crow give Mike grief when he's in that form as they can't take him seriously, comic gold all around in space.
