Dr. Forrester (Beaulieu) and TV's Frank (Coniff) have a new theme song: "Livin' In Deep 13", but it doesn't impress Mike (Nelson) and the Bots (Beaulieu & Murphy). Dr. Forrester decides to send them the short Young Man's Fancy and Ed Wood's The Violent Years.
As usual, The Violent Years was edited for use on MST3K. It does not seem to have been for content, however, as the missing scenes were innocuous.
Most of the host segments are odd, having little to do with the main feature. Especially odd is Tom's turn as Barbara Streisand. The final segment, featuring a stunning recreation of the riveting gas station holdup scene, however, is right on the button.
The riffing is quite good, with the guys really getting worked up over the "girls attack man" scene.
