This is the episode I "started" with. I watched MST3K as a kid, forgot about it, and got reminded of it with some tapes from a thrift store. This was the first one my sister and I watched.

It's not only my favorite episode- it's also damn-near perfect. Every riff's a solid hit, host segments are fantastic- The Train Song, and "I... Am... The E-Lam!", to the bots rewriting the ending.

Love Prince of Space, but 505 is peak MST3K. Old-school style riff to be sure, but the warmth of the early years is in full bloom on this one with A+ sketches and even an in-theater stunt. Also, weird movie.
