Weird. The promo at the end says the KTMA series was going to do both Green Slime and Thunderbirds. I wonder what happened.

I was actually the one to upload the remastered version to Youtube, though i didn't make it. This episode was in fact, restored by Garrett Gilchrist. The footage comes from two sources i believe. The MST scrapbook and a camera recording of it, just though I'd clear that up. Hopefully we'll get the pilot released in HQ in the future, heck, we know Joel has it since he was the one who screened it!

I would have watched this every week even in this format.

Oh, I see. Link 2 (which I just added) has an intro. Makes more sense now.

The "full episode" link is only 14 minutes long? Almost none of the movie, and it seems like we're missing at least one host segment. Does the full episode exist out there?

At the start of the video, Cambot seems really drunk.

That was pretty horrible. I'm glad they improved by leaps and bounds.

I haven't seen that until just now! How utterly charming. So glad that the 'bots evolved to their later states. It's awfully clever, the stuff that Joel was doing at that time, but pretty offbeat.

I love floppy haired Joel.

Been years since I last saw this. Wow. If they had been deliberately spoofing the concept, I would say "Brilliant!" Since we know that was not the case, I'm bordering on speechless. Crow elicited the biggest laugh, at the end. I agree with Scott A. Taylor, who wonders why they never riffed this one properly. It's not really Rifftrax material, but I would love to see the CT crew take this one on.

It is my MST3K Birthday/Turkey Day tradition to watch this. And The Crawling Eye. And Mitchell. And whatever other episode I see fit.

The bit from a convention at the beginning of this is interesting. What's cool about seeing the pilot episode of TV shows is seeing how the show has changed over time. The show started out very different looking, but the premise stayed the same throughout the seasons. Originally, they had almost no budget and were filming the show in one of the few rooms of a public access channel TV studio in Minnesota. That they were able to keep this intentionally cheesy, Middle American pop culture infused riffing style even after they hit the big time. Even The Movie is recognizable as the show even if it is inexplicably missing all of Dr. Forrester's assistants. Not many shows survived the transition from idea to actual show on mainstream TV with as few changes as MST3K did.

Oh man! Omega Man callback! A terrible but at the same time fantastic movie. (You may know it as I Am Legend; was also the basis for one of the better Treehouse of Horror segments from the Simpsons)

I agree that they should have riffed Green Slime in then series. Weird Italian-Japanese- American vibes.

Am I the only one slighty creeped by Beeper and the complete lack of riffs and Cambot?
