We need a new office cubicle cartoon that says: “You don’t have to love MST3K to work here… BUT IT HELPS.”
I’ve been watching from the start!
The “Emily’s dad genuinely laughing” anecdote. Oh, wow, oh, bless.
Time to break Twitch, everybody!
“The reason I’m on the show is because I love the show.”
And you really feel that with this new era. You can’t fake that funk.
Awwww, ours is a nice muffin-y cult.
“I’ve never seen The Godfather playing at a bar!”
Go to New Jersey. Whole other ballgame there.
Wait, are we not supposed to be riffing Schindler’s List and Dancer in the Dark?
THE WIZARDS EPISODES ARE AMAZING
I’d count Wizards I as a top 10 episode, easily.
[cackles at the Munchie pain]
Jonah’s right to cry from his soul at this one.
That episode is going to be delicious.
JOEL WITH THAT HYPE ABOUT A TAPE HOST SEGMENT, that he can’t believe they did that. AHHHHHHHHHHH, CAN’T WAIT
Oh, God, The Castle of Fu Manchu. That interviewer knows that that episode is a headcrusher.
Plus, Wizards II gives us more Sid Haig!
This livestream is an excellent bonus. This has been a great Monday afternoon!
Artisanally crafted comedic material.
Jon Weigell’s favorite episodes are The Wild Wild World of Batwoman and Robot Monster? Nice!
And he’s right to love Servo screaming “ENNNNND! ENNNNNNNNNNNNND!!!”
Jonah picks an Outkast song for Crow, and holy cats, he is not wrong to do so.
BUT IT HAS TO BE PERFORMED BY CROW
Emily shouted out Voyage of the Rock Aliens (via its soundtrack’s “When the Rain Begins to Fall”) and I HIGHLY suggest seeking it out for a stream. It features a battle of the bands between a knock-off of Devo and a knock-off of the Stray Cats, PIA ZADORA, Jermaine Jackson in a cameo that has nothing to do with the rest of the movie, and about 7 different 50s B-Movie plots crammed into one movie.
It’s maybe slightly too coherent for MST3k (which is why I haven’t mentioned it in the “movies that should be riffed” thread), but my local bad movie night put it on my radar, and it’s got a truly killer trailer:
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I GOT AD BREAK’D BEFORE JONAH GAVE US HIS SANITY-BREAKING SONG
Anyone catch that?
Oh, never mind, it’s Cotton Eye Joe.
