Synopsis
Cult US comedy/sci-fi series created by Joel Hodgson. When mad scientist Dr. Clayton Forrester (Trace Beaulieu) and his assistant Frank (Frank Conniff) get bored with their work at the Deep Thirteen Research Centre, they kidnap Joel the janitor (Joel Hodgson) and shoot him into orbit on the Satellite of Love. While in space Joel builds robot Tom Servo (Kevin Murphy) and Crow T. Robot (Bill Corbett) to help him withstand an onslaught of bad B movies that the mad scientists force him to watch. In this episode the film lampooned is Maximillian Schell’s HAMLET (1960).
