This week on Failure to Launch we examine MICROCOPS, a 1989 sci-fi comedy about Microscopic Alien Cops who’s society is entirely made up rule abiding sticklers. So they come to Earth to learn to loosen up, party down and stop a microscopic criminal who is causing oil spills and advocating, like, you know, whatever man. WOOP WOOP.
But because they are so tiny, in order to get around this massive world they hijack the first person they stumble across; Morgan, a scientist who’s entire career involves developing a molecule that will clean up oil spills. So convenient!
Can Bidra and Nardo save earth with Morgan’s help? Can Bidra learn “What is Kissing?” Can Morgan win back the love of his life from the evil millionaire funding all his projects? And can we forget the endless “WOOP WOOPS”? Oh God the WOOPS. Make them stop.
(Apologies for the audio issues with this episode. Someone absent-mindedly turned their microphone off during the recording.)
