He will delve into how the Gorgo suit was created, the problem of putting a monster in Paris, and even how it was handled by the crew of the Satellite of Love in none other than Mystery Science Theater 3000. Speaking of that series, Shout! Factory TV also has two classic episodes of MST3K streaming this month. One of those episodes features Gorgo. The other focuses on another so bad that it’s great movie in the form of the 1983 Canadian made-for-television movie Overdrawn at the Memory Bank.
