The first episode (and first new short) were muchbetter than the Netflix seasons.  They slowed the riffing down to normal levels and it feels less like three completely separate comedians launching jokes at the screen with machine guns.

The best thing about the original run of the show (and Rifftrax now) is the feeling of three friends hanging out and joking together.  I think new-MST is finally starting to rediscover that.

That said, I'm still not convinced that a dedicated streaming service for a single program is going to work out in the long run, and the Gizmoplex Theater feels like an over-engineered solution to a problem that doesn't exist.

New host segments are still the weakest part of the show, though.  Not that there aren't some gems now and then (like the wrestling promo skit), but they mostly just feel like unnecessary filler.

I took my daughter to see a live show in their most recent tour, which featured Emily. She was really fun.

I'm looking forward to her hosting an episode. I really enjoyed the one short she did for Turkey Day.

$135 a year?  I guess it's not that much more than a higher Patreon level.  But yeah, it's a curious way to go.

I contributed to the kickstarter. I still haven't watched the new episodes. Partly bc the process is kind of a pain in the ass, partly bc there is so much other really good stuff easily streaming. Peacemaker, Severence, Smiling Friends, Guardians of Justice, Space Force, Resident Alien, Ghosts, Doom Patrol, Dream Corp LLC, Lower Decks, What We Do in Shadows, Harley Quinn, Miracle Workers, Wanda Vision, Loki, Book of Boba Fett, Mandalorian

But at the very least I wanted to contribute to a show that pioneered the idea of a Creative Commons license. My first time seeing MST3K was on a VHS tape sent to my friend that was Mystery Science and Ren & Stimpy which I watched while tripping balls in college mid 90s.

I think all seasons are good. Hope to see the new stuff soon.

I Kickstarted, but at a lower level.  So I had to watch the new stuff through other means.  Paywalling it behing $135/year is kind of asking a lot.  Even $10/show is a lot.  I'd think they'd just say $10/month to see everything there, but that doesn't seem to be the route they're going.

I did the lower level because I wanted to support and I figured 3 months was cool but not sure I'd keep going so I wonder if they'll end up doing new kickstarters each year for more seasons. I did like the new movie/short. Wondering if they'll mix up host orders or if I'll get all Jonah eps for the 3 month run.

It's a dumb idea unless it's 99 cents a month.

as others of said, the price point is waaayyyy to much except for the most hardcore of fans. I'm more of a rifftrax fan these days anyway. I don't really need the skits. Just give me a bad movie and good jokes
 
2022-03-23 3:24:24 PM  
I've got stream fatigue.

The entire draw of Netflix when I had it 12 years ago was the convenience of having all the movies and shows in one place. Now that all the territory has been pissed on and every studio has their own streaming service, I'm buying season box sets on eBay. We need Blockbuster back.

starlost: New mst3k every other friday for the rest of the year. That got my attention.


It alternates between one week with a new episode and one week with a new short+old episode. So it's not quite as much content as you'd think.

The content during the live events seems to be a couple new host skits plus several sponsor-related skits. Then a discussion after the episode. .

Nope.  The new season will be one episode shorter than The Return, but about twice as long as The Gauntlet.

Plainly, I suck at counting things. I shall have to revise myself to normal impressed (just because I like the show) rather than highly impressed. :)

*spit take* $135?!?!

I appreciate you giving opinion on ongoing episodes since the first season on Neflix was a bit underwhelming for me (still haven't finished it), but $10 an episode is a lot, especially if you have to pay $10 per episode for every episode of the season, regardless of their relative quality. Even the original runs of the show had some pretty bland slogs.

I have no idea about $135 thing. I didn't sign up for that. I look at it more as well worth my kickstarter donation for nearly 3 decades of entertainment that I'm guessing they mostly did way under compensated considering the early stuff was like distributed on VHS for free or public access.

Considering how much I've spent on stupid stuff I barely remember. I'm not gonna begrudge tossing a relatively modest amount of cash at some people that have provided me with actual joy on many occasions over half my life.

I saw the last MST3K tour (time bubble or whatever it was) and I've seen frank and Trace do the "Mads are Back" tour.  The MST host segments were tedious at next.  The Mads don't do skits, and the show flows much better.

It's kind of funny to compare the aggressiveness of the riffs between the different groups.  MST tries to be almost completely family friendly and is usually pretty kind to the movies they watch.  Rifftrax can be a little more cutting and sometimes go a bit far in insulting the looks of actors, for instance.  The Mads go fully "Fark Chris Christie" in the middle of a joke.  I enjoy them all, but the different groups have definitely evolved their own house styles in the years since the original run.

That's what I told myself when buying the Rhino DVD box sets even though I already had acquired every episode by other means.

Yeah, that's a good added value, for sure.  Although that is for a limited time.  Also, since I already have the old episodes, the real value for me is in the new ones.  I may do a couple of the individual new episodes as they come out, but I'd feel a lot better if it was $10 to own and download and not just rent for a week.

I get where you're coming from, but I liked that netflix seasons. some of those episodes are among my all time favorites.

as for the recent first episode and the short, I loved when they were in the theater but the hosts segments, and especially the opening, were god awful. hopefully they change some things before the actual premier. but it doesn't matter since I'll be watching anyway.

I do like the Netflix seasons.  There's some great stuff there.  I just think the writing wasn't quite as strong because it really felt like a ton of writers all wanted to get their jokes in instead of a relatively small group that knew how to write for each other really well.  Just too many guest writers involved, I think.

While I enjoy the stuff they've done since the Netflix reboot, it does have a very different feel to it.  The old MST was produced by a relatively small group, each of them doing at least three different jobs on set, that almost all came from the same background.  The reboot's good, but I really think it's obvious that Mike did some great work as head writer and his absence in the room makes a difference.

I enjoyed both series on Netflix, mostly it is just a pick a movie/riff from each of the eras kind of thing. Any new MST3K or RiffTrax options just means more lifetime entertainment to enjoy.

I know it's been covered by now, but as much as I loved OG MST3K...they got a huge Kickstarter AND have a ludicrous paywall to watch the episodes? Nope.

/Ahoy!

Gleeman: I know it's been covered by now, but as much as I loved OG MST3K...they got a huge Kickstarter AND have a ludicrous paywall to watch the episodes? Nope.

But it's so straightforward:
$10/event to watch live or replay for a week
OR
$8/event to watch the replay for a week
OR
$135/year to watch all the events/replay for the year
OR
$50/season to watch all events/replay for a quarter of the year.
OR
$$/month to watch the events that month plus 6 curated episodes each month.
OR
$$/episode to purchase and download/stream individual episodes

I mean, JFC, just charge $10/month to watch whatever is in the library as of that month, plus live events.

I might pay the $8 or $10 for Robot Wars because holy crap is that a terrible movie absolutely prime for being ripped on.

I'm really looking forward to that one, although I've been hoping for Robot Jox to get either the MST or Rifftrax treatment for years.  I wonder if that one just wants too much money to license.

Space Station Wagon: oldfarthenry: MST3K is my "comfort viewing" show.
I shall be pouring four fingers of scotch & watching these every other Friday night (if I ain't out clubbin' 'n sh*t).

I think we've found Rowsdower's account.


So, Rowsdower; is that a stupid name? Or...
