The Apocalypse is a 1997 action/sci-fi film starring Sandra Bernhard and Cameron Dye.

It was directed by the editor of Highlander II, and its budget is assumed to be the contents of the reject chute of a Coinstar machine.

Plot[edit | edit source]

A collection of people that we wouldn't trust to clean a public restroom have to stop a group of space felons from destroying the Earth with the S.S. Shakespeare for Dummies.

Notable characters[edit | edit source]

The Episode[edit | edit source]

  • This is the fifth episode in the show's run to have a guest host--Will Ackerman, making his first appearance on the show

Highlights[edit | edit source]

  • The fact that the three hosts managed to squeeze that many references in just over two hours
  • All the names that were given to Vendler

References[edit | edit source]

Tiradesverse tropes[edit | edit source]

  • Protagonists? - Wayne and Lennon
  • Courtneys - Mailai, Rugby, everyone on the protagonist side except Wayne and Lennon; and all of the characters in the opening scene except Goad
  • Guy Banter - Vendler
  • SYMBOLISM!!! - We assume the incessant Shakespeare quotes are supposed to mean something, but we'll be damned if anyone knows what it is.
  • The Future Sucks
  • Pointless heel turn - Vendler and his crew turning on the others--it is pointless in the fact that it was about as obvious as humanly possible. Like, seriously, Helen Keller and Ray Charles would've seen this heel turn coming.
  • Massive gunfight
  • Curious Quartet - Vendler, Noel, Misha and Mailai
  • Movie hacking - Nearly every single time Noel is on screen
  • Five-Second Microcosm - Vendler saying, "This is getting monotonous."
  • Where have you been??? - Noel saying that the program is just a continuous loop.
  • Box of kittens - Vendler
  • Eric Roberts Paycheck - Sandra Bernhard
  • Killing Your Own Guys - Vendler, on the stupidest level imaginable...
    • He kills Mailai just because she realized they were doomed if they didn't get off the ship
    • He also repeatedly threatens to kill Noel (and eventually does shoot him to death) despite Noel being the only hope they have of solving Goad's doomsday computer program
