Moon Zero Two Recap

In the opening, Joel asks the viewers at home to eat so that he can eat through them vicariously. In the invention exchange, Joel demonstrates his Drive-By Teleporting, where in the future restaurants will teleport food directly into the customers' stomachs as they drive by. Forrester and Larry demonstrate toothpaste dispensers based on famous celebrity heads that "throw up" the toothpaste. Then on with the movie: Moon Zero Two, a 1969 film about an independent space salvage astronaut who becomes involved with criminals trying to salvage a small asteroid made out of sapphire.

-----

At the first break, Joel and the bots put on a recreation of Neil Armstrong's historic landing on the Moon. Joel messes it up, mostly from trying to do Buzz Aldrin and John F. Kennedy impersonations back-to-back. The skit ends when Joel locks the keys inside of the LEM.

Inspired by the bad guy playing "Moonopoly" in the movie, the gang imagine other games of the future.

-----

At the third break, Tom and Servo argue about who is the most attractive woman in the movie. When a fight breaks out, Joel insists that they fight in zero-g like in the movie, using the same slow-motion "special effect" the movie does. Despite being filmed on a tenth of the movie's budget, Joel's version is better.

Gypsy comes by and the gang play the Movie Review Game for RAM chips. Ryan writes in to say that he likes Joel and the bots. The Mads remind Tom to recite the fan club address.
