mahavishnunj: as a long time fan of the show, does anyone else think any and all of the host segments were terrible and skip them everytime? i always have to tell people who have never seen it before,'ffw through the parts where its them in the spaceship. it always sucks.' sorry if this has been addressed already.


I enjoy them for the most part. Not all of them are great, but enough of them are entertaining enough that I don't fast-forward through them. I'm not as big a fan of the Pearl & Co. segments as the ones with Deep 13, though. Sci-Fi forcing the host segments to become more serialized didn't help anybody.

trotsky:
Cave Dwellers (first one I saw, the bit at the end where Crow points out continuity errors is great)


What is this, a Heart video?

dietbubba: timelady: Best shorts:
Mr B - the horror!
Date with your family
and
Why study industrial arts (i'm not a killer!)

Bonus points for Keeping clean and neat (we took your libido and starched & pressed it)

I love Why Study Industrial Arts. Easily my favorite short.


I think Date with your Family is #1. When I am feeling depressed I watch it and just about choke myself laughing...

I'm surprised at how little love for The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living And Became Mixed-Up Zombies there is in this thread.

Mitchell will always be a personal favorite, and was a great way to switch between Joel & Mike.

You weren't the only one to reverse the name in this thread.

It really is a backward name.

Whoa cool! Do they have any prominent roles? It would be awesome if any of the riffs were directed toward them ;)

I dont know if any of them had actual speaking parts, I would have to watch again and see.

Those that were in it were mostly extras from the Novato area that worked the Renaissance Faire circuit out there.

I do know that one of them was responsible for some of the tire tracks you see in the background in some of the hillside shots at the faire.. :)

jimmythegeek: No Touch of Satan?

"Well, I'll let Leatherface know you're here."


The very first MST3K I saw was "Touch of Satan". I didn't really know what to expect of the show, and was worried I might not "get it" and then the scene happened where the old lady went nuts and bust through the screen door screaming and Crow said "Umm, it's open!" and I lost it and have been a fan ever since.

Late to the party, and I don't care, but Girl In Gold Boots will always be near the top of my list. I seriously end up saying "whatever, white people" about three times a week.

And there's a restaurant actually called EAT on my way to work. Goddamnit.

/it's like EAT, times FOUR!

FirstNationalBastard: NeoCortex42: FirstNationalBastard: NeoCortex42: browntimmy: So in this era of 1000 channels and everyone gets a TV show why isn't this or something like this on TV now?

I think the reason for no MST3K is that the rights issues are too much work for most networks to want to deal with it, since they have to worry about the rights to MST3K as well as each individual movie.



Pretty much.

When MST3K first began airing, they were able to get the rights to the movies they riffed on the cheap, because the films were either in public domain, or worthless to the rights holders. But, because of MST3K, the movies once again had value, which is why the shows are no longer aired on TV, and why DVD rights have become a biatch to obtain for the companies releasing the DVDs. So, when announcements are made like the titles for the upcoming Volume 25 set, which includes movies from both Universal and MGM, it's a big deal, because until now all of the titles from those companies were thought to be unobtainable because MST3K made the movies worth something again and the major companies either don't want their movies mocked by the cow town puppet show, or want more money than can be afforded by Shout to license the movies out.

The rights issue is also why Cinematic Titanic uses movies strictly from the public domain, and why Rifftrax is audio files or PD Shorts and films only.

I remember the rejoicing when the Gamera set was announced, and how long MST3K: The Movie was out of print. The copyrights issue is unfortunate. Too bad we'll never see a complete mega boxset for MST.

Thank goodness for the Digital Archive Project. I have all of MST, including most of the KTMA year, yet still try to make a point to buy the DVD sets as they're released.

A Complete MST3K Mega box set... hell, even a complete season, would probably be so expensive only the most dedicated hardcore fans would buy it.

When they got the rights to MST3K, Shout Factory reportedly did look into other ways to rele ...


You know who would jump at the chance to buy it other than the most diehard fanboys?

The few independent video stores that still exist. The one near where I grew up made most of its money from their extensive 'cult' TV and movie section (like all the MST3ks released, which my dad and brother and I rented most of) and porn. About 50/50, I was told when I interviewed there...

I remember seeing that "GET OUT OF THE BRONX" line as a graffiti in some movie, totally out of place, and never knew where it came from... I think it might have been that one with the nun and the time traveler in LA?

"The Day the Earth Froze" for "Here Come the Circus" and the Sampo discussions.

It's escape 2000, one of my favorite episodes. "Must save white snake tapes...".

The other one is Future War and is just so so bad. Almost to the point were the gang can't make it bearable to watch.

Future War was great. It had dinosaurs, and cardboard boxes, and Jean-Claude Gosh Darn, and a nun with attitude.
