Sometimes I just want to put on a random mst3k while I do some cleaning or chores. Could you please look into adding a button that picks a random episode in my library and plays it?
If it could have some complex options like “not watched in 6 months” or “only/not a short” that would be cool too.
I’d like to see a random episode selector function added to the app and the website.
It would be nice to filter by owned episodes as @xmakina suggested, but I own most of the episodes either from Rifftrax or DVD, and I’d like to have a function that just picks an episode at random from the whole catalog.
The recently departed club-mst3k.com had one, and it was my second favorite function after the endless onslaught of spambots advertising massage parlors in Pyongyang.
Quick question: do you know if it is permanent? The site has gone down before only to come back up. I really love that site!
I made dis for you (the forum)
I wish I knew. I have seen it come back after going down before, but it’s not clear that the owner is maintaining it any longer. I’m gonna keep checking back, and I will report if it comes back up.
For folks looking to fill the gap until a random episode picker is introduced to the Gizmoplex, Rustypal has this function for MST3k, although it is inconveniently divided based on where the episode originally aired:
Seasons 11 & 12
It has been well over a year since we heard anything from Stephen, the guy behind Club MST3K. In the meantime, the spammers multiplied and were reported, but nothing was done.
I think we have to learn to let it go, and just keep the fond memories.
