I'm actually voting for something besides Manos, seeing as how I own 2 dvds of it... the MSt3K and the uncut original.

I there too many beers, I think. Or not enough.

Mmmm Schlitz.
Mitchell is a great finale, considering the transition from Joel to Mike.
 
2013-11-28 08:43:35 PM  
Hot merging action!

Was it this or the other Baker movie that Joe Don called out MST3K?

I usually take it with a ding dong in it but I can have it neat.

This one.

According to Mystery Science Theater 3000 Amazing Colossal Episode Guide on page 97, the cast had heard a rumor that actor Joe Don Baker was very angry at the MST3K treatment of Mitchell, and threatened physical violence on any of the cast or crew should he ever meet them in person. This did not stop them from later featuring (and happily mocking) another of Joe Don's films, Final Justice, and hurling even more vicious insults at Baker.[6] Kevin Murphy, who played MST3K's robot commentator Tom Servo as well as serving as one of the show's writers, later said Baker likely meant it in a joking manner. Nevertheless, Michael J. Nelson stated that he avoided running into Baker when he discovered that they were both staying at the same hotel.

Word has it Joe Don wasn't thrilled with Mitchell, so Mike and the Bots roasted Joe Don in Final Justice.

/roasted Joe Don makes his own Gravy.
//and, Final Justice had bot the Owner of a Lonely Heart bit, and the first (and lat) appearance of Friend to Maltese Children everywhere-i-o, Goosio!

It was pretty neat that Shout Factory did this, and it was nice to see Joel again. I really enjoyed this today.

^this - plus ten.  Hopefully we'll get to see Turkey Day 2014.

Maybe we can end with Manos.

At the end there were 13k people watching.  That's pretty epic.

I got into MST3K in the late 90's and missed most of it.  Since then I have been a fan and exploring it at my own pace.

It does my heart good to see people coming back to it.

All this for a 25 year old show that hasn't been on the air in nearly 10 years.

It does my heart good to see the younger fans too. Lots of them are doing their own riffs on newer stuff. Most weren't around for the original airings or were too young, and many were not even born when the show was on Comedy Central.

Good, funny things never die.

I was able to catch 'I Accuse My Parents' and the first part of 'Werewolf'. I own all the DVDs and I could pull them off the shelf and watch them any time but there was something so cool about this. It gave me a warm, fuzzy feeling to see MST3K on my television again, even if it was streaming from the internet. I hope they do it again next year.
 
2013-11-29 07:42:30 AM  
I watched the whole thing while cooking/eating. Posted quite a bit on twitter too. It was nice to see such a good response mst3k was trending most of the day and during "Final Justice" Rowsdower was trending.

I wasn't able to stick around for Mitchell.
Did Joel say anything at the end of the broadcast?

in a recent AMA on Reddit, Joel said that he thinks the Joe Don Baker thing is a myth. Not sure if Mike knows anything otherwise though.

Is there a list of the movies they riffed? (I got to watch one)
