Can I volunteer to fix the TV subtitles?

I’ve noticed that a lot of the subtitles that run on TV rebroadcasts were added by people who didn’t understand the references or didn’t get the jokes, and it makes the subtitles sad. I have to double back on the joke to translate what it actually was, instead of whatever mish-mash nonsense words the subtitler entered. The first five minutes of Sampson Vs the Vampire Women is painful to watch.


They’ve got a Google Doc Form for it: Gizmoplex [CLOSED CAPTION] Issues

Of course, that’s true regardless of subtitles.


You can create your own *.srt file (or edit an existing one) if you watch via software (like Plex) that lets you choose external subtitle sources.

Point taken. But it’s not the fun, expected MST3k painful. I just hate seeing good jokes get butchered in translation.
