Put on a robe and fling some magic: It's your OPEN THREAD for the premiere of DOCTOR MORDRID, tonight at 8pm ET / 5pm PT, only in the Gizmoplex!

TONIGHT, starting at 8pm ET / 5pm PT, enter the uncanny world of DOCTOR MORDRID, featuring Jeffrey Combs as an interdimensional sorcerer fighting against an evil threatening humanity! Any resemblance to any other magical Doctors, especially ones connected to major comic book franschises, is purely coincidental.

Then, stick around after the show for a LIVE discussion with MORDRID screenwriter C. Courtney Joyner, plus Emily Marsh, Tim Ryder, and Kelsey Ann Brady, led as always by our handsome and stalwart Matt McGinnis!

GOT QUESTIONS for our live guests?

Also, PLEASE INCLUDE THE NAME YOU’D LIKE TO BE CREDITED UNDER (as well as how to pronounce it) if we read your question during the stream.

I’ve already watched this from the non-livestream release, but will look at the extra content tomorrow.

Second-best Emily episode so far, I would say.

So very excited for another new episode!

Huzzah! I know even less about this one than I knew about Munchie, and I like it that way!

No, really. I don’t even know the first thing about what it’s ripping off.

I know it’s got that alien guy from The X-Files in it, though.

Brian BY GOD Thompson! Always such a fun presence whenever he shows up in stuff, like when he played one of the ill-fated punk goons in The Terminator (along with the late great Bill Paxton there).

I’ve decided on my favorite thing about the revival: The movie selection has gone deep into the 90s, right alongside the show’s origins. This bridges Pumaman and the MCU era perfectly, IMO.

Stop making me cry about how much I love this show, please and thank you.

I AM SUCH A HAPPY TEARS DORK OVER THIS DANG SHOW

Which is to say, I understand completely.

I’m a big fan of Doctor Strange, and of course Jeffrey Combs, so I’ve liked this movie for a while. There’s plenty to riff on, sure, but hold on to your sorting hats, fellow wizards, because the climatic battle is actually pretty dang cool.

Also, since I’ve just verified I am indeed related to Jeffrey Combs (I mean, it’s obvious from looking at me, but I found the genealogy trail today), I’ll be happy to accept any praise you have for him on his behalf.

Total agreement. This is the era of movies I grew-up with, so I relate to them so well.

Whew, another week where work burns me to a crisp (and I have two days of it left!)

But hey, what’s this? MST3K?? Time to power through the exhaustion and rejoin the crew for a night of wit, whimsy and off-brand heroicism!

Work is temporary. MST3K is forever!! Let’s DOCTOR this MORDRID!!!

If you’re like me*, you watch a lot of BBC television and need to keep reminding yourself that it’s not Andrew Scott having a rough day.

This whole lineup has been absolutely gangbusters. I love the scope and variety of the first four episodes, we’re getting something really nifty-looking with Doctor Mordrid (hell yes, Full Moon Entertainment!), and we STILL have the rest of the season to go with some intriguingly eclectic picks!

Hopefully, this movie will be a healing factor for all of us after watching “the movie I don’t EVER want to watch again” 2 weeks back.

Yeah, I don’t think this one bruised the writers quite so much!

(Unless it horrified them into silence, of course.)

Have already watched this more times than Munchie :joy:

Who doesn’t love a Jeffrey Combs vehicle? I’m watching this right now, and although I’d seen clips from the movie before, I’d never watched the full thing.
Well, it is exactly what you’d expect a Dr Strange movie starring Jeffrey Combs to be like!

Oh, indeed.

And I’m ALL about any/all Combs-Barbara Crampton team-ups, like with Re-Animator, Castle Freak, and From Beyond.

Antagonist-wise, I can’t be the only one thinking of Souptaper’s Father Dude:

Particularly since Robert Z’Dar is also in that movie.
