610 - The Violent Years (w/ Young Man's Fancy) - There was a good crop of weird, funny host segments in this episode. In the prologue, Servo dons a ventriloquist dummy's head, scaring the hell out of Crow. You can't go wrong with a good bot freak-out. This is followed by everyone singing their own theme songs. I like Crow's theme for Mike the best: "Mike. Ma-ma-ma-Mike. Ma-ma-ma-Mike. Ma-ma-ma-Mike, Mike, Mike..." That is followed by the Mads' new radio station with it's classic advertising line "Turn Your Crank to Frank." Coming after that, Servo spends a solid half-hour dressed in a red wig and screaming/crying into a microphone. Mike follows up by dressing as Keanu Reeves. Strangest of all was the final segment, in which Crow and Mike reenact the gas station robbery scene. This involves them not moving and Mike standing with a really bizarre posture. It's been a long time since I've enjoyed every host segment, but there it is.
