Dear fellow MSTies,
It is time for me to follow TV’s Frank and Torgo the White into second banana heaven. I won’t be renewing my Gizmoplex pass for 2023. I enthusiastically backed seasons 11 and 12 on Kickstarter. Did the same for season 13 but it hasn’t been as good for me. MST3K must grow and evolve so I’m probably just ageing out, but I didn’t find this season as fun. To me, the quips seemed more predictable and the host segments less enjoyable. Over the past few months I found myself wondering, “Hey, what’s the deal with this stuff not bein’ bold?!” Oh, there have been some bright spots (throws a special wink to Synthia and gooses Max) but not quite enough for me.
So, adieu MSTies but don’t forget me. We’ll always have Catalina. And I have a feeling that, like many minor celebrities fleeing Twitter these days, I’ll be back eventually. I still have some DVDs, digital download Kickstarter rewards, and a Twitch account to fall back on when I’m jonesing for some hot quipping action. MSTies are the best fan base around.
Press the button, Frank.
Cue the MST3K Love Theme.
