I was watching Samson vs. The Vampire Women when Samson makes his first appearance in the film and Crow just loses it; I chuckled and I thought to myself, Ah, this stuff is great. Then I took it a step further. I don't think the people who search for and post these videos get enough credit. After all, this site basically hinges on them constantly making sure that each episode is available, right?

So, I just wanted to say thank you to the guys and gals for making this great site all that it is. I watch an episode every night while I'm in bed and I couldn't imagine not having Club MST3K.

So, I get how the first set of doors opens up to a green screen on which the rest of the sequence is shown. My problem is this: how does that last door open to another green screen on which the movie is shown? The door isn't really opening, it's on a screen, how does that work? It's driving me somewhat mad. Please help me understand this.

In honor of Tax Day here in the States, who can name the episode where Tom is doing Crow and Mike's taxes? A big ol' juicy refund check will be headed your way if you're the first to guess correctly!*

*Note, a big juicy refund check will not be headed your way if you live in Illinois.

Space Mutiny has a scene where Mike covers Tom and Crow's eyes.
Manos: The Hands of Fate has a scene where Joel covers Tom and Crow's eyes.
These are the most highly-rated episodes of the series.
Coincedence? Nope.
Also, they don't block Cambot's eyes. I mean eye. I guess he's more mature than the other two.

I found these at the local bookstore. http://imgur.com/f8paH3K
I had found them earlier but my phone died, there were literally 10-12 books named "Hunter of Gor" "King of Gor" etc. They either got bought (yeah right) or got thrown out.

About a year and a half ago, I watched The Magic Voyage Of Sinbad for the first time in about 20 years, and didn't really dig it that much. Like almost every other Russo-Finnish flick they featured, the pacing was glacial, the plot impenetrable, and it was visually overloaded.

Still, as The Sword And The Dragon was an instant favorite when I saw it "for the first time again", I pulled Sinbad off the backup pile just for the hell of it and gave it another shot last night, and I actually rather liked it.

So, now I'm watching it again tonight, and I really am starting to really dig it. The riffing is really dense and sparkling; they jump on every opportunity to throw down something, and every time, the riffs really click.

I think I'm enjoying Sinbad more after getting into the comedic value of the overly lush visual style, plodding pace and hammy acting of the Russo-Finnish epics by watching The Sword And The Dragon.

I like the idea of a “Kill With Forklift” button to go along with our laugh button, as Pika suggested. But if we can't get that, we at least could use the acronym KWF.

I looked up other acronyms, and it also stands for Kanye West Foundation (let me finish) and Kids Wrestling Federation, among others.


Gamera Vs Barugon: most "emo" Japanese monster flick on MST3K?
1 laugh

Mike Flugennock - 1 day ago

I'm at about the 01:27:50 point in Gamera Vs Barugon, and I've just realized that I've seen more gushy, overwrought, anguish-loaded emoting in the first hour or so than I've seen in every other Kaiju flick on MST3K combined. That guy in the cave early in the movie finds the jewel (the Barugon egg) and starts flipping out about all the cool stuff he's going to do... then he's stung by the scorpion and starts flipping about dying, then he dies, then his friend starts flipping out about him dying. Every time they try some cockamamie plan -- like "Operation Rearview Mirror" -- that guy who brought the native chick back from the island gets all soppy and pissy and ashamed, and... d'ahhhhhHHHHHH!

Is Gamera Vs Barugon the most torturously "emo" Japanese monster flick ever shown on MST3K, or what?

It would be desirable to be able to delete inappropriate replies made by others on one's posts. It's rare, but it has happened that I've found it necessary to delete comments and riff quotes after other users have posted inappropriate, usually political, replies unrelated to MST3K on a comment/riff.

I apologize for bringing this issue up in the Forum, but my attempts to resolve this issue privately have been unsuccessful.

I think Swamp Diamonds is a totally weak episode, but I laugh my arse off when J&tB make motor noises at the alligator.

Anybody else got any of these hidden gems? Just hilarious stand-out moments in an episode you otherwise aren't really into?

Truth Serum:
While a truth agent does exist it is not as we see it in the movies. It does not compel its victim to speak the truth; what it does is shut down the imaginative part of the brain. Therefore the victim cannot think of a lie. It does not compel him to speak and if he already has a lie prepared he can still use it.

Finally watched it, Host segements were awesome. But Bert I Gordon trying to go 60's Disney teen flick couldn't seem to make up his mind what he was doing with this. My biggest gripe was with MST for cutting out the musical number by Boston's own Freddie "Boom Boom Cannon! I was really looking forward to hearing him wail, but got the butt ugly Beau Brummels instead with a bad song to boot, but The Greatest Frank and Torgo more than made up for it. One of the Giant girls was a regular on the Monkees too.

Okay, MSTie Hivemind. I'm looking for an episode in which a character in the movie says, "It's a dead end," and one of the guys starts singing, "Dead end. Dead end. Dead end dead end dead end dead end dead eeeeend," to the Pink Panther theme. I was thinking of using that little clip as a ringtone.

Hey guys. I hope this comes off as I mean it. I am feeling a bit overly freely emotional so... hope it is well received. As I tell u time 2 time I hope u know I really appreciate each of u who makes this a kind, fun place 2 b!

Events in my life as of late has made it paramount 4 me 2 tell the general "u" this: I "know" so many of u- the brilliant, clever, quick witted, fun-loving, smart, kind & sensitive people. U share small bits of yourselves & I feel that in many ways u may, tragically go unappreciated. Whether it b that u r underemployed, unemployed, disenfranchised or what not... I feel like there is such greatness here that doesn't get her/his fair share in life & has 2 hide your "light under a bucket" but I c your light here. I just want 2 u 2 know that & I hope that life offers u what u deserve and makes up 4 this in some way--in all ways possible. Please know u r appreciated & wished well. My apologies if this is not understood but I do hope it is felt with my true intention.

My best goes out 2 u, people.
