So gloriously fucking classic it hurts, period, etc. To explain why --
I always loved really bad movies, they're great. Seeing bad movies
trashed by people who obviously had brains but weren't afraid of cheap
shots either seemed like perfection, and the fact that the perpetrators
were seemingly calm Minnesotans who had a clear and total loathing for
bullshit of all sorts -- societal, cultural, political, philosophical -
- made it all the more fun. Still my favorite ever TV show.
Search -- um, everything. Some episodes you don't need to see as many
times, though, and sometimes ones that weren't as great initially
become great with time. My Top Ten List At Present:
Manos, The Hands of Fate -- "Honey, I'm scared." "Of WHAT?"
The Starfighters -- "Bob Dornan, wild at heart."
Mitchell -- "She was going to smell like beer sooner or later."
Teenage Strangler -- "I didn't steal no bike neither!"
Overdrawn at the Memory Bank -- "My nuts?"
Red Zone Cuba -- "You and your swank restaurant and your chichi
Agent From H.A.R.M. -- "There's the windup...and there's the
Werewolf -- "C'mon, dead people know what's going to happen
The Starfighters -- "I like coffee."
Pod People -- "Trumpy! You can do MAGIC things!"
Subject to change, but that's a good starter pack right there, along
with Eegah!, Jack Frost, Parts: The Clonus Horror,
Monster a Go-Go, The Girl in Gold Boots...

The fifteen-minute promo they did for Nintendo; the "sandwich" sketch
at the end of The Undead; the long string of lesbian jokes in
Racket Girls; and, ultimately, the movie, which while v. good,
probably should never have been made; and finally, the various
asinine copyright issues that pretty much will ensure its limited
availability in non-bootleg form to future generations.

I brought the subject up because I think it's high time we discussed
it at length. A lot of Americans on ILx are pretty vocal about their
MST3K-love, but for obvious reasons, much of the UK posse have never
even seen the show. Those who have only know the Sci-Fi era shows
(and can't get Rhino tapes, either), so they're only getting part of
Don't get me wrong, I'm not a Comedy-Central purist at all. The
primary reason I got slowly peeved at the AOL NY MST3K contingent was
because they were by and large vehemently Anti-Mike, going on and on
about how the show was a bunch of boring crap now and how cute and
sexy Joel was. I just couldn't see it. Admittedly, though, by the
time MST3K left CC, the show's early, woozy charm had long faded
away -- but it was replaced by something else that, while slick, was
still awfully entertaining. (Charm isn't everything.) At the other
end of the history spectrum, the KTMAs aren't bad at all, but
all woozy charm and few laffs. Still, that won't matter if you're
already a fan.
The worst movie they ever did was, easily, Monster A Go-Go.
Scroungily overamped "What'd I Say"-rip at the beginning, but
looooong stretches of black & white nothingness punctuated by perhaps
the most infuriating cinematic anticlimax ever. Next in line is
Manos: The Hands of Fate. It's my impression that MST3K almost
single-handedly velcroed this flick onto the Canon of Bad Movies, and
that's a good thing, because it's a startling artifact with a great
story behind it.
Favorite Sci-Fi-era Episode: Jack Frost. Indeed, every episode
involving a children's movie is sterling.
Best Acting in a MST3K Episode: Beverly Garland reads the riot act to
The Celery From Outer Space in It Conquered The World. Bela
Lugosi tells a fellow scientist off in Bride of the Monster.
Crow vs. Crow: Trace-Crow is more neurotic, Bill-Crow is more snide,
yet once Bill got in the groove, I seriously think they were in equal
Joel vs. Mike:
Extraneous thought: if in some alternative universe Catalina
Caper was a good, no, GREAT movie, the Avalanches' album would be
its soundtrack. Perhaps we could kindly suggest to Tim Burton a

Colin -- yeah, I remember you were email@example.com, but the

The boards also attracted a number of true mental cases, most
unforgettably KeijiKJ. He was similar to Gondola Blob in that he
indulged in casebook net.kook behavior: delusions of professionalism,
snottily dismissive of any random thing, threw around the
word "clique" a lot. I've even heard stories that he scared the
bejesus out of BB members during the first con. I personally had a
thoroughly pointless argument with him about the population of the
cities in California.
Concerning Mike, I'll say this: there are quite a few times during
the Sci-Fi-era when he seemed to be sending out his performance via
Fed Ex. Sad, because it was clear after CC he was capable of much
better. But you know, a lot of the Sci-Fi-era episodes that initially
seemed kinda minor and kinda eh to me now strike me as being

Stalking resulted from an unfortunate IRL encounter with a nice
enough person. I thought it was a lovely afternoon, she thought it
was TRUE LOVE FOREVER. Eek. The story resolved harmlessly enough --
she found TRUE LOVE FOREVER again with another MSTie, and this time
it was returned.
MST3K was never that big a part of my life - I watched it
sporadically, and I always seemed to be in the wrong state of mind to
truly enjoy it. I'll side with the Joel phreex, though, just because
bald is sexy. (I'm getting sexier by the minute.)

But yes, Mike has the angst in there somewhere. He just tempers it
very beautifully -- thus his legendary turn as Morrissey.
― Colin Meeder, Thursday, 17 January 2002 01:00 (eighteen years ago) link
To add to the book recommendations -- Mike N.'s general essay book Mind Over Matters is another fine read (the TV essay alone is some kinda genius, the mock 19th century novel even more so), while I very much liked Kevin Murphy's A Year at the Movies. Chris Piuma mentioned he felt it was fairly Joe Queenan-like and therefore not as distinct as it could be, but I think it was handled very well and worked as both microstudy of the moviegoing experience and general reflection. Certainly any of the ILF/film-going hounds on this board should consider reading/borrowing a copy, at least. Then there's Mike's new novel Death Rat, which I really need to order next month...
And praise to all the other castmembers doing things and the continual rolling out of more DVDs, though apparently Rhino says they've exhausted what they have the rights to right now and are looking into securing more, hopefully...

You could kinda tell this was the case. From Joel's latest mailout to the original Kickstarter backers:
As some of you might have guessed, we won't be making new seasons of the show for Netflix. However, I want you to know that we've had a wonderful time working with the Netflix team, and will always be grateful to them. After all, they gave us the opportunity to spend the past few years aboard the Satellite of Love, and made it possible for new generations to discover the joys of riffing cheesy movies with your friends.I couldn't be more grateful or proud to our incredible cast and our wonderful crew for bringing this incarnation of the show to life, and hope that we'll get the chance to continue collaborating on MST3K as we enter our next chapter.And, I'm pleased to confirm that The Return and The Gauntlet – along with a healthy selection of classic episodes – will continue to stream on Netflix, bringing some of the show's best episodes to cheesy movie lovers around the world.Now, I know you might have questions about the future of Mystery Science Theater, but as you've seen over the last four years, we are just as dedicated to keeping MST3K alive as ever. And I want to remind you that there are still lots of options for us to explore in the years to come. This isn’t our first rodeo! So, while this might be the end of the first chapter of bringing back MST3K, don't worry: it's not the last chapter.

So I saw the touring production with Joel the other night -- nights, really, both Friday and Saturday:
Seeing #MST3Klive on Friday and Saturday night in SF was a real treat, and I'm so glad I went. If this is indeed Joel's formal bowing out from the role he created, while still helping guide its future, then it couldn't have been more fun. pic.twitter.com/JfNKkF7Hyg— Ned Raggett (@NedRaggett) February 4, 2020
And I muttered this on FB:
So back on Friday and Saturday night, as I briefly posted then, I saw two of the three SF performances on the current Mystery Science Theater 3000 live tour. (The third was a matinee of the Friday show.) Joel Hodgson, the originator of the whole thing, has said this is his last go-round with it as the central figure live (and likely for good), so while ticket prices for close seats were up there, ultimately I felt I had to go for it. And it was well worth it -- the presentation was a stripped-down and engaging affair, almost like the theatrical equivalent of the earliest actual episodes, though with an eye towards careful cleverness in how to showcase the robots, add extra visual elements and so forth, all while keeping the core of making fun of some trashy movies (_No Retreat No Surrender_ on Friday, _Circus of Horrors_ on Saturday). There was also something of it feeling just so right -- MST3K is probably the TV program I ultimately love the absolute most, and where time casts certain lines and things in new and not always better lights, I can't sit with those people who seem to think it was a blight on moviegoing and criticism and so forth. It comes out of a place that doesn't really exist anymore -- late night UHF broadcasts of cheaply made and cheaply acquired films and the sheer befuddlement of seeing them, combined with the Vampiras et al of the world on various local stations as the hosts of bumper segments -- and has become its own origin point for a slew of other approaches in turn. Nearly thirty years is a long time to fly the flag for anything when there's so much more to learn and discover, but even if we're not talking the from-when-I-was-six Tolkien and Star Wars interest I still have -- and, say, Schulz and Peanuts before then, the ultimate lodestone -- it all seems to move beyond nostalgia towards transcendence in its own way. I've only ever seen Joel once before live during a filming of his pilot _The TV Wheel_ back in the mid-1990s, so there was that too, while this supporting cast did a solid job, and Joel made more than one comment -- perhaps underlined by the fact that Netflix has dropped the revival -- that this was 'the future' of MST3K, and it's a little noteworthy that Emily Marsh, to the right of Joel in this shot, was set up the _No Retreat_ performance as, quite possibly, the next person in the jumpsuit alongside the bots. If it took over 50 years to get to Jodie Whittaker as the Doctor, then 30 for the equivalent here is an improvement. Maybe the future'll be more productions like this? Maybe something through Shout Factory's own channel? Who knows? But all I can tell you is that I had a good time, and it was especially nice being among 'my people' in the crowd -- a whole mix, older and younger, and by no means not all middle-aged white dudes like yours truly. I think we all had that slight look about us that knows we're not glamourpusses or bros or whatever, we're just people. That suits the show as its best too, and I'll always be grateful. Towards the not too distant future, in whatever form it holds.

i never came back to pick up the final six episodes. can't remember which were funniest/best in terms of riffing, but just in terms of movie selections, Cry Wilderness the most jaw-dropping of the first batch, and pretty much all of them have the right "feel" to be MST movies. i think Time Travelers and The Christmas That Almost Wasn't were the toughest to get through. i never really fell in love with the cast or the pacing of riffs but i got more used to both as it went on... maybe a little of that is like a "getting used to Mike after Joel" thing, but it never quite shook a certain 2010s "bad movie podcast / bad movie youtube channel" energy that just isn't for me. still totally glad it happened though.
― Doctor Casino, Thursday, 23 April 2020 21:03 (three months ago) link
Yeah they're compelled to fill all the empty space with jokes. It comes off too blatantly as pre-written, where the pacing and delivery of the original run maintained the illusion of quick witted reactions on the fly.
― Evan, Thursday, 23 April 2020 22:05 (three months ago) link
Agreed with that. But yes Cry Wilderness and Mac and Me both agreeably insane. Avalanche was an amazing botch of a film. Generally speaking all the film choices were good, it was the end results that were varied -- the 12th season/six episode run had the advantage of none of the shoe-horned cameos or the clumsy Max/Kinga dynamic, it was more just breeze through it all.
