Episodes 310-314: Share your screenshots and favorite riffs!

He triiiiiied to kill me with a forkliiiift…!

As a refresher:

You can submit one to three screenshots in comments on each post. Please keep your images at minimum 800px x 600px and 72 dpi. File type does not matter. YES, screenshots of host segments are welcome too!

If you’d ALSO like to throw in a favorite riff, choose one that’s relatively short. Remember to include the timestamp of where it happens in the episode. Ideally the riff should make sense when used in context with the screenshot(s) you’ve chosen. Riffs are optional, though, and if you’d rather just share screenshots, that is fine too.

All of this info will be collected and may be used in the Gizmoplex library! Your contributions are greatly appreciated, even if you can’t participate on every post. There’s zero pressure to do EVERY episode. Whatever you can do will help.

Ha! That’s a great (and better than mine) Cornjob picture optiMSTie.

I can’t find a decent looking print for It Conquered the World, so I’m going to skip that one. I’ll try to think on Mighty Jack, see if I can remember any scene I’d like to include. But I think I’m running out of screencap steam, might take a break, we’ll see.

It’s been fun.

Heh, thank you kindly! I was putting that post together as you put yours up, so I tip my hat to you!

Yeah, what’s playing hell with us on that one is that It Conquered the World is one of those MST3K episodes that never got a DVD/streaming release due to rights issues, so anything that’s going to get screengrabbed from that is going to come from a taped-off-TV copy floating around YouTube (and will look like that accordingly).

Definitely that, fun. :smiley: And you do a lot to make this all fun!

Whichever way you decide to go, you take care, and hope to see you back at this sooner rather than later!

Apologies for the “late entries”, I got sidetracked with Columbo and Star Wars. I guess my job interfered, too… I propose the job goes.

As a side note, what a great ending to Star Wars’ 'Bad Batch" season 1, and Ending #3 (4, 5, 6?) for the ‘Clone Wars’. Every new ending really puts the first four seasons of care-free Saturday morning funfare into a nihilistic perspective, no? Ok. That’s not why we’re here. Whatever. Moving on, it’s Friday and I’m drunk and here’s the pics!



You’re a disgrace to all Kens
