Every now and then, we come face-to-face with the major questions that have puzzled deep thinkers for ages:
“What’s the deal with airline food?”
“Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?”
“Why do you park on a driveway and drive on a parkway?”
We don’t have answers for those. Well, we don’t have good and/or correct answers, anyway.
But when posed with another big question, “What’s up with the moon?”, we can reply with a resounding “OOH, OOH, OOH, WE KNOW THE ANSWER TO THIS ONE!”
MSTies, we’re proud to present the upcoming Mods’ Choice Community Watch Party series, “What’s Up with the Moon?”
Every other Friday at 8PM EDT*, your forum moderators will be hosting a totally unofficial and completely unsanctioned Watch Party in these very forums! And because we’re pondering the central question of “what’s up with the moon,” these watchalongs will feature a common theme: MST3K episodes that have some kind of focus on lunar lunacy.
The selected episodes for these Watch Party events will be classic MST3K episodes so that they’re available to everyone. You can either watch your own copy or stream the episode for free at gizmoplex.com.
Regardless of whether or not the moon is full, our viewing lineup will be full of hilarious moon-themed episodes!
THRILL as a space exploration team sets up a post on the moon in Project Moonbase, featuring TWO chapters of Radar Men from the Moon!
MARVEL at the exploits of a hotshot moon pilot who squares off with an unscrupulous tycoon in Moon Zero Two!
CHEER as everyone’s favorite brawl-happy demigod goes toe-to-toe with lunar enemies in Hercules Against the Moon Men!
WITNESS a celestial calamity threaten the existence of two civilizations as a space rescue team braces for the Crash of the Moons!
TREMBLE as an archaeological madman unleashes monstrous horrors with the arrival of each full moon in Werewolf!
GASP as a falling moon rock transforms a mild-mannered mineralogist into an inhuman creature in Track of the Moon Beast!
When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s amoré, and there’s plenty to love about enjoying these classic episodes with your fellow MSTies in our “What’s Up with the Moon?” Mods’ Choice Community Watch Party events!
So, join us, won’t you?
