Ep. 24 - The Rocky Horror Picture Show vs Young Frankenstein

Nov 11, 2020, 04:18 AM
In this (belated) Halloween episode, we discuss the lighter side of reanimating the dead. The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) is the very definition of a "cult classic", having spawned decades of sing-alongs by generations of adoring be-costumed fans. Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein (1974) is no less beloved, and with good reason, as one of the greatest and most quotable spoofs of all time.

How is a laser gun like a salad shooter? What is a transducer, and can it really turn you into stone? Can a step to the left, followed by a step to the right, really send you into a time warp?

All these questions and more, answered on this silly and only incidentally informative episode of Science vs Fiction!
