DrPainMD: I will never like Mike Nelson.


Mike was the head writer even Joel was still there. If you want to get pissy, get pissy with Jim Mallon.

And definitely get pissy with Jim Mallon for being a douchebag and his shoddy treatment of THE TAPES, which have left many of them degrading and with tape hits that prevent clean copies of the episodes from being made for the DVDs.

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: The All-Powerful Atheismo: Mike is a loony conservative windbag.

No thx.


Is he still? I didn't want to mention it, but I read an interview with him a while back and he was total Libertarian flake, maybe even worse. I think he was going off on Clinton for some stupid reason that was common at the time. Makes me hard to like him, sadly enough.


You guys have never heard of separating an entertainer's work from his politics? You expect your comedians to all have the same views as you? In my case, I know that Kevin Murphy is an annoying liberal, and probably contributed many left-wing zingers to MST3K, but I ignore it 'cause he's farking funny. He and Mike seem to have no problem working together after all these years despite their political differences. Get the sticks out of your asses why don't you.

Seriously. Mike Nelson is a funny guy no matter what his politics are.

Keizer_Ghidorah: It's okay to love both Joel and Mike. After all, they love each other. (kinda NSFW)

I'm firmly in the Mike camp, but I'll say that Joel's sketch segments were better than Mike's on average. Though, I'm guilty of fast-fowarding through those segments to get to the movie. That's not to say there aren't great sketches, but most of them fell flat for me.

When it comes to RiffTrax versus Cinematic Titanic, though, there's no contest. RiffTrax is a thousand times more entertaining and has a much greater diversity of content. The shorts alone are golden. Seriously, you can buy them for a buck a pop, it's more than worth it. On top of that, it's just way more fun to watch them riffing newer and more well-known flicks, and the celebrities and live events are icing on the cake. Neil Patrick Harris riffing Willy Wonka is one of the greatest things ever put to media in the history of mankind.

/shorts are ALWAYS the best thing they produced, though

IXI Jim IXI: Always loved em both. I wish I could get into Titanic, but it just never seems to hit me the right way. Rifftrax, though, is consistently funny


I really think that's because Rifftrax has Mike, and CT doesn't. Or maybe it's one of those situations where the live shows are better because the riffing chemistry is solidifying between them as they go along.

But somehow, as much as I love the Mike/Kevin/Bill incarnation of MST3K (and Rifftrax) I always fast forward through the Pearl/Brain Guy/Bobo skits in those episodes. Just can't get into them.

Both Mike and Joel are great. It just depends on what mood you are in.
You can make a strong case for hating both too.
