I'm more of a Mike guy.

From what I can remember

Mitchell

Manos: The Hand of Fate (of course)

Sampo was a great MST3K episode, and by great episode I mean it was an atrocious movie that was cursed by the cinema gods.

/kids come running for the rich taste of Sampo!

Same. I think the difference is when you were introduced to the show. I saw it first on Comedy Central, when Mike was the lead.

As for the new ones, I think "The Loves of Hercules" was hilarious.

I go back and forth, they certainly both had their charms, same with the Mads.

Rifftrax was starting to grow on me a bit, but Prime keeps pulling shiat and swapping it with new stuff while i'm half way through a movie.

That was a Mike episode though.

The Creeping Eye was just on Pluto, that wasn't bad.

I think we can at least all agree that the new iteration kind of sucks.  Which sucks because I heart Felicia Day.

Joel was the lead on Comedy Central, too. Until he left.

And Joel was THE BEST. Mike sucked. I can't stand Mike. Probably because the whole tone of the show changed when Joel left. They were...trying too hard.

Everything with Mike can be skipped. Everything with Joel is essential.

Joe Don Baker threatened them with physical violence for that. They went on to riff on another one of his movies.

I wouldn't mess with 1970's era Joe Don Baker, but I think I could take him in a fight in 2020

Well Mike was the head writer even during the Joel years.

I liked him in the James Bond movies. He was a busted up CIA agent as opposed to a busted up cop.

Yeah it would have to be Mitchell. Followed by Pod People. (Sack o' monkeys in my pocket, my sister's ready to go...)

Mitchell's "Word on the street is you're a jerk!" is still one of my favorite lines ever.

Runner up is one where I can't remember the name of the film but I remember Joel shouting, "hey! Can someone get the cat off the Fender-Rhodes??!!"

/but I'm Team Mike

Gotta give Joel the edge.  Those shows just seem more, i don't know, "hand-made" or something.  Like a band you like on their original record label before they moved to a major label.  Like the Replacements on Twin/Tone and not Sire.
