Mad Men Science Theater 1965

This might be only hilariously funny to me but in the latest episode of Mad Men Layne and Don are trying to find something exciting to do on New Years Day and so they hit the cinema. Their choice of movie is non other than the Japanese stink-fest Gamera. Here's the clip:



Layne loves it! The line "This movie's very good!" will live on for me and for any fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Joel and the Bots riffed through not only Gamera but four sequels during Season 3 of the series. They were:

1. Gamera vs. Barugon
2. Gamera vs. Gaos
3. Gamera vs. Guiron
4. Gamera vs. Zigra

I've watched all of these [the MST3K episodes, that is] and I've got to say that they make Gamera look like Inception by comparison. The Gamera episodes have never made their way onto a MST3K DVD set which is commonly blamed on the harsh treatment the riffs give these series of films.
