Your five "desert island" episodes -- go!

Hello folks! To kick off our new forums for y’all today, I’m posing a terrible quandry:

I’ll go first:
Overdrawn at the Memory Bank
The Girl in Lovers Lane
Cry Wilderness
Danger Diabolik
I Accuse My Parents

NOW YOU!

Now I feel like I should have included Quest of the Delta Knights. Such a sleeper of an episode but it’s so great.

Listing them along with my favorite quotes/riffs from them as well:

  • Escape 2000 “Thing, put the Luger down!”

  • Giant Spider Invasion “Like a ROCK!”

  • Mac and Me “I want to see the movie the composer thought he was scoring”

  • Cave Dwellers “How much Keefe is in this movie, anyway?”

  • MST3K: The Movie/This Island Earth - “What’s this ‘and the rest!’ crap?!”

In no real order,
1.) Track of the Moon Beast
2.) Fugitive Alien
3.) Danger!! Death Ray
4.) Final Sacrifice
5.) Podpeople

My favorite Jonah episode is either Mac N Me or Ator. Since both Rifftrax and MST3K have done Ator, I wish someone would do a mashup using the best jokes.

Oooof … tough call. Today I’m going with these, though it might be a different list tomorrow:

The Day the Earth Froze
I Accuse My Parents
Teenagers from Outer Space
Space Mutiny
Whurwilf

Ooh, this is tough. I’ll go with:

Pod People
Danger!! Death Ray
Fugitive Alien
Werewolf
Pumaman

Seasons 9 and 10 were so packed with fantastic episodes it feels almost wrong to be limited to just five. I really need to create a ringtone (or perhaps my doorbell?) that goes, “Bah dah dah dah de dah de dah” from Danger!! Death Ray.
