You know, I almost confused Gor for Den, from Heavy Metal fame. There are just enough similarities to really throw me off. Guess the “Nerd travels to a Sword & Sorcery Fantasy World where he becomes a Fuck-Lord” is just one of those genres that blurs together after a while.

Listen, I’m not saying it’s a bad thing. I’m just saying that there’s a LOT of overlap. At least John Carter wasn’t a total nerd.

Thank you, kind person. I will be spending two weeks in “surgery recovery vacation” (america #1!) blitzed on oxycodone shortly, and this tip neatly accounts for about two hours of that.

When I looked at the VHS cover at the top of the article I wondered why they couldn’t find a better picture of Oliver Reed to use than one where he was clearly falling-down drunk. Then I realized, “Oh, yeah, Oliver Reed”.

Still, the sequel did end up being one of the better of the old Mystery Science Theater episodes.

For anyone truly curious about where the story goes, it’s: nowhere. The sequel is almost exactly the same as what’s described here, only instead of the villain being a man with weird predilections and an inexplicable attraction to Tarl, it’s a woman who’s all of those things. Oh, and Tarl has an even nerdier sidekick who’s also a sexual predator and almost immediately betrays him into slavery. Plus, it contains much, much more Jack Palance glowering than the original.

So yeah, the sequel is even worse, but it makes a great MST3K episode. (I mean, honestly, it’s worth watching the episode just for the musical tribute to all the butt shots.)

You’re shocked at the asshole joke in a college faculty? Colleges do have PE teachers and athletics coaches after all.
