I wouldn’t want the show reriff any movies from the “classic” run. Even season 1 movies would be a bit iffy for me, since they were already scripted riffs. Plus, I think a number of season 1 episodes are funny enough as is. Now, what I would like to see is more KTMA reriffs. Phase IV and City on Fire would especially be great.
Your turn, Mads. That’s season 14.
BUT it could be for a reel or two for an episode, but Kinga and Max get in, then Synthia (who likes it) and Mega, who sits in with Emily wondering if she’s enjoying the experiment too much
If it ain’t broke… hoping 13 introduces a downswing in some of the worst of the Netflix direction, and things even out, get an edge back and expect the audience to bring something to the party. Then it’s up to the Gplex success to see if we get a 14. So the hope- 14 is a locked in on what works season that continues what 13 brings.
Just 94 minutes each week of a test pattern with that dull “Emergency Broadcasting System” drone for 13 episodes!
Seriously, just keep doing what they’re doing. I do find myself drawn more to seasons like the Gauntlet (or even the Ancient Rome setting in the original series) where there was some attempt to link the episodes together, although I know that’s not a favorite of some fans.
(My follow up question is – when will we start planning for S14? ASAP, I’d hope. They can pre-sell subscriptions to the next 12 months of Gizmoplex and hopefully collect our dollars that way, w/o the painful itching and swelling that comes with a Kickstarter… )
Crow and Tom Servo recieve an urgent distress signal, and follow it to what appears to be an abandoned space craft. Upon boarding the craft, they find a woman who has obviously did what she could to survive, but is in need of medical attention. Crow and Servo convince the mads to take her in, nurse her back to health, with the promise of making this survivor the new test subject.
Only, this new test subject was a Trojan horse the whole time!
The whole ploy was made up while Emily faked escaping the ship, and the mads were desperate to find a new test subject quick. Crow and Servo infiltrate the mads dressed as the “survivor” and Emily and the bots turn the tables on the mads and inflict sweet sweet justice on them by forcing them to watch terrible movies.
The mads join in on the riffing. While Emily and the bots are still riffing, they get to choose the movies to make the mads even more, well… MAD!
In this special season, the viewers voted for every single movie and the community decided what movies would be riffed.
