Two Gamera Vs Jiger previews are up on YouTube.

One is more host focused, the other with movie clips:

So, with regards to that first clip, I find it incredible that no one has apparently come up with “whamera, bamera, thank you, ma’amera” before.

My favorite thing about that second clip?

Dr. Donna St. Phibes is BACK, baybay!

I think Jiger should be pronounced like the country Niger (Nee-szehr). Ergo, Gee-szehr. It’s very French, just like Jiger!

don’t ask how I know she’s French, I just do

FWIW, in Japanese it’s 「ジャイガー」(“Jaigā”)

Dr. Donna St. Phibes returns!!! This was too good an opportunity not to use her.

Be ready people!!! This is an unedited episode. The entire movie had to be riffed. The writers in interviews discussed the problems involved in having to write for the whole thing. This should be EPIC!!!

Is it just me or are the mads not aware of the 90s Gamera run? Also, that one construction site joke Crow made reminds me of that one Canadian safety short Rifftrax did.

I would guess that The Mads may not be the most knowledgeable about film history.

I mean, I hate to use strong language, but… the Mads seem kinda dumb.

To be fair on that regard, remembering things of the past only happens when it suits the purpose. Like how in Mike’s debut they mentioned he was trained with “Beast of Yucca Flats” before the initial experiment for him, but then later showed fear of the movie as if he hadn’t before.

I mean I’ve seen Beast of Yucca Flats and I’d still be scared…

Heck, the 90’s Gamera movies were better than the 90’s Godzilla movies, it was a weird decade.

Wow. That’s gonna be great!

How many episodes have unedited movies? And how did they have such restraint that this didn’t immediately become the norm once unshackled from terrestrial television?

I for one am thankful for the editing in most of the movies. This is MST3K, not The Criterion Collection.

Someone, Joel?? mentioned during one of the after shows that most of the movies are edited for time and content when necessary to keep the show family-friendly. He also mentioned that you would find out exactly WHY those episodes were usually edited with the Gamera movie (since they had to agree to show it in its entirety). I think the gist of his point was, be careful what you wish for. :slight_smile:

Both very reasonable.
