My efforts to fill in one-episode gaps in my list of Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes commented on continues. Moving to the ninth season, I've selected a British movie (although, having already commented on two more-or-less British movies from this season, I now have one left in between to also watch...) "Gorgo" ("The vice president's unimaginative campaign slogan!") just happens to have that extra touch of absurdity of being a British version of movies better known from Japan involving giant monsters wading through major city centres. Given when the episode was made, I somehow keep thinking of the American version of "Godzilla" made right around then as well; however, it's not commented on in the episode. In any case, it's easy enough to imagine that the "riffing" on "Gorgo" is funnier for not attacking something made recently.
