  • Episode Description
  • Super-villains and washed-up TV personalities like Corey Feldman, Vanilla Ice and Erik Estrada band together on a quest to Mordor in an attempt to destroy the One Ring in "The Surrealer Life." "Exhausted Budget Theater uses Popsicle sticks to re-enact the beloved classic Debbie Does Dallas. And "The Cons of War" shows the truth behind the mysterious veil of comics/sci-fi conventions filled with geeks, dorks and Leonard Nimoy.

    • The dates listed on the sci-fi convention banners say the date is March. This episode may have been intended originally for a March 2005 premiere and got moved up. Plus, given the earlier Easter Bunny segment, it's quite possible this show was originally intended for an Easter airing, March 27th, 2005, instead.
