To the cast and crew of MST3K, fellow MSTies and White Dot: I wanted to express my gratitude for everything!
From getting the Gizmoplex formally launched to the tremendous Season 13 along with the new shorts, classic tribute events, Vault Picks bumpers and segments and just plain fun: You have all made 2022 the best year I’ve ever had as a MSTie!
And I am so excited to see what 2023 has in store!
None of us was really sure during the KS what would happen once filming started.
First and foremost, how would filming episodes even work with covid?
How would the sets work with greenscreen?
How would three hosts work, story-wise?
Luckily some things, like having to film everyone separately and then composite things together wasn’t necessary. (though the fact that they had Mega-Synthia and Pearl in a scene together and we never realised they weren’t filmed at the same time speaks volumes to the fact that it probably would have worked).
Other things, like the technical panic for the first Santo premiere, spawned a new MST icon in White Dot. Once again showing that MiSTies are some of the best people around.
Season 13 really was a solid run of episodes, possibly one of the best seasons, ever, of the show. The riffing was topical. The pacing of the riffs was excellent. The host segments were fun. Everyone involved did an amazing job!
Bring on Season 14. Can’t wait to see what the team has in store next!
What an adventure it has been! Thank you to EVERYONE involved, from Joel and the cast and writers and technicians, down to Ivan and Leslie and the mods, down to all the backers and fans! THANK ALL OF YOU!
Thank you to all of the people that work on this.
Thank you to all of the weirdos that make this forum lively.
Thank you to the mod team for keeping this forum from exploding.
Thank you to whoever decided to put a thread I made as a joke into one of the weekly Kickstarter updates.
Thank you all, and let’s hope we can see more and better in the future.
Absolutely, this would have been a joy at any time but in the past fairly grim year (actually few years, the Kickstarter period was full of great supporting events too) I’ve really appreciated having new MST3K content, personalities, and fans to interact with. Thank you to everyone on camera/mic, behind the camera, and on the forum.
I 100% agree that season 13 was a great success. I have participated in all of the KS campaigns, and my name has been in the credits before, but with this season I felt so much more a part of things. It came at a rather tumultuous time for me as well, and laughing along with all of you here in the forums made things so much better.
It will be. And it’s lovely to hear. I can only speak for myself and say that when I’m writing, I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about the result. I just write what I find funny and let it be what it becomes out in the world. However, I wouldn’t be a writer if I wasn’t deeply affected by the media I like. So it is humbling to be involved with media that affects others.
