PLEASE NOTE: THIS THREAD IS -NOT- TO BE CONFUSED WITH THE OPEN THREAD FOR TONIGHT’S LIVESTREAM PREMIERE OF THIS EPISODE.
THIS SPOILER DISCUSSION THREAD IS INTENDED FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE ALREADY SEEN THIS EPISODE -BEFORE- TONIGHT’S LIVESTREAM PREMIERE AND WISH TO DISCUSS WHAT THEY’VE SEEN RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE.
IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE EPISODE, TURN BACK NOW!
Here is your discussion thread for spoiler-filled thoughts, discussions, and observations on The Christmas Dragon!
This is your destination for discussing anything and everything about MST3K episode 1313: the host segments, the theater segments, the memorable quotes, the hilarious riffs, the feature presentation, all of it!
Remember: this is a spoiler discussion thread of the season finale, so all points of discussion will not be spoiler-blurred. One more time: if you haven’t seen the episode, you’ll want to turn back now!
Even though this film isn’t about the Arbor Day Dragon, let’s go!
Wow. Now that’s what I call a cliffhanger. If Pearl ever does something STUPID to the timeline, this means elements from the Netflix seasons onward (the Boneheads, Pearl’s 2 clones, the Kingadome, smol GPC, and even Growler and Waverly) will be erased.
I know this is a SUPER nitpick, but I really, really wish that when they left the theater at the end, they gave the movie just another moment or two so we actually got to see the title , “The Christmas Dragon” onscreen.
I know, I know, it’s a stupid thing, but the heart wants what the heart wants, haha.
There are episodes this season where I laughed more during the theater bits. But the overall energy of the piece, the event-like quality makes it extra special. And the livestream with audience laughter pushed it up a notch.
The 3 hosts segment was my favorite part of the riffing, and Patton as Friar Nolte earns a -chefs kiss-
