Episodes 613-617: Share your screenshots and favorite riffs!

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.

I’ll never forget the first time I saw this segment. I ended up just… stunned (in a good way).

I decided to restart it right away and then it clicked for me. Bold, magnificent sketch!

614 San Francisco International

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: this is my favorite episode. Every now and again when I re-evaluate my favorites, this one is always on top. The “film” itself is engaging on its own, a complicated heist-hostage scenario that is genuinely harrowing, and I actually feel for David Hartman (I grew up with him on Good Morning, America, which also accounts for those jokes getting a huge laugh out of me). The subplots are also cool, especially everyone’s favorite made-for-TV Hippie subplot, but the episode REALLY shines when Davey somehow ends up in a plane and has to be talked down, and that’s when the riffing really shines. While the riffing for films of any era are good, there’s something about 70s/80s television that feels the most personable, and it’s like the writers drew from watching countless hours of bad TV. It’s funny that this managed to go to series sans Pernell Roberts, who I honestly liked in his role and can’t fathom Lloyd Bridges doing the role justice. Also, the whole Steve Urkel host segments are a favorite of mine because I was so into Family Matters as a kid.

  1. We’ll Be Back

    “By Mennen!” (Mike, 34:26)

I know, the screenshot is literally a blank screen with the crew and really showcases nothing, but this riff hits home so much for me because this is exactly how some sets of commercials would do, a blank screen with the jingle and nothing to accompany it. The fact they tapped into that makes this joke feel specifically catered to me.

  1. Our Made-For-TV Hippie

    “The Answer, My Friend, Is Blow It Out Your Ass!” (Mike, 40:26)

God, I love this riff. Just…chef’s kiss :kissing_smiling_eyes: :ok_hand: perfect!

  1. The Perfect Ending

    “Davey! NO!”
    “Not again!”
    “DAAAVEEEEY!!!” (Mike, Tom, Crow, 1:27:32)

This is the perfect ending to the whole Davey subplot and the episode.

I could probably put every single riff of the entire episode in here, but these three encapsulate why I love this episode so much.

The Davey sequence near the end is hilariously and impossibly dark and amazing.

No kidding! Learning that all the “Battlestar Galactica” riffs are a reference to Eddie Seidel Jr. also makes it darker than I originally thought! MST3K doesn’t pull punches.
