    MST3K- "Push the button, Frank!"

    Fellow MSTies, a thread on our favorite bots and human companion is long overdue.

    One of my favorite bits and holiday appropriate:

    Watching the Turkey Day marathon on YouTube right now. One of my top five favorite shows ever!

    Mike Nelson and crew are equally great with RiffTrax!

    That was in 1996, and I know the writers liked to play Doom, so I'm guessing they were playing Quake as well.

    I love them both for their own reasons. I could never understand why people were so obsessed with determining which one was better.

    Joel Hodgson had a great run with the show, and it was too bad he decided to leave. But I thought MST3K didnít skip a beat when Mike Nelson replaced him.


     
     

    This bit always manages to have me in stitches.

    i'm notorious for not being able to wait to give people presents, so it's KILLING ME that i have the new turkey day collection sitting in the closet but i have to wait until my wife's birthday (december 21st) to give it to her >.<

    we did, however, just get the collection that comes with a servo figurine because shout factory had it on major sale last week!

    Love MST. I am more into Mike than Joel but both are great. The Incredible Melting Man is probably my favorite episode.

    "Dawn...in the Serengeti."

    HOTCHKA!

    What's wrong with bootblacking? I like it very much.

    Rifftrax has been keeping me going since I have seen almost every MST movie. The Lord of the Rings trilogy is a treat to watch... it's fucking hilarious.

    "i'm doctor ted nelson!"

    last night, after subjecting ourselves to Santa & The Ice Cream Bunny (for the second time ever; definitely one of my favorites, though), sarah (my wife) and i watched the newest rifftrax VOD, Fun In Balloonland. it was 54 minutes long, completely insane, and our faces hurt so bad by the end from laughing too much. there was also a NIN joke right near the end that cracked me up good.

    I don't know how I avoided it for so long as fan of MST3K and of bad movies in general, but I finally watched the Manos episode. I never really believed it when people said how bad Manos is and how even the MST3K crew couldn't save it at points, but wow. The "It's the same guy. It's still just the same guy" and "Don't burn any bridges yet, Torgo" lines killed me. Also, "DO SOMETHING!"

    make sure you check out the live rifftrax of manos, as well. it's fantastic and there's a lot of great in-the-theater moments (though if you haven't seen some of the episodes of mst3k that reference manos, you might not get everything...like the torgo's pizza delivery haha) and a completely different set of riffs.

    tonight while decorating our tree, sarah and i re-watched the rifftrax shorts collection "santa's village of madness" which was done by k. gordon murray (the same guy who did santa claus) in preparation for seeing Santa Claus get riffed on thursday. so excited for that.

    santa claus live was pretty good! not as good as some of the other live shows, but it was fun. their on-stage banter beforehand (CURLY SHOES!) was excellent, and the ACI short (at your fingertips: sugar) was pure madness.

    national geographic is doing two new hours of rifftrax'd programming tomorrow at 8pm eastern time!
    i've only watched the first of the three segments from their run back on april fool's day, but it was fantastic, so i'm looking forward to finishing those and checking out the new stuff.
