"Only in hindsight can I fathom the confusion that my grandparents must have felt upon watching this with me in the theatre. Just imagine: you’re 75 years old, you’ve never seen any sci-fi in your life, you were a child in friggin 1920’s HUNGARY. But then there’s all these Jewish accents and Hebrew words which you latch onto in familiarity… but spoken by aliens and robots? It must have felt like some sort of neurological hiccup. DaphZuniga, tho, fresh and firey”
"Seriously. I didn’t MEET a jew until I was 15, but I saw tons of borscht belt style comedy in my youth. I didn’t actually get any of Brooks’ semitic reference points, but it’s like when you watch Looney Tunes and they reference teen idol Frank Sinatra and you don’t really understand that the cartoon you’re watching was made in 1940 - - you just kind of enjoy it without context."
