Arrgghh. My first is: Slurring/mush-mouthing clearly caused by alcohol and/or drugs... when the character in question isn't supposed to be a drunk and/or druggie. Margaux Hemmingway is a major recent offender (Killer Fish) and they should've fed her to the title characters 20 minutes in. The toothy ones would swiftly have fallen into tiny killer fish comas. Win-win.

My other one is: foreign accents which are meant to give cardboard characters actual depth, but do not. See Ray Kellogg with his penchant for giving his little-girl-voiced, bargain basement ingenues Swedish or French accents or whatever. They always sound irritatingly fake. (I've never bothered to check and see if they actually were.)

Just a quick note to the Brit Msties. I consider myself to be fairly adept at the English language(I do crosswords in pen- humble brag). However, often on this site I will see comments with words I have no clue what they mean. So of course, I look up what the word means. Invariably, it will be a British word or phrase and it brings a smile to my face. I'm not sure the point i'm trying to get across other than I appreciate learning and I love the Brits' humor, use of language and the way y'all still use the letter u in so many words(I retract everything if I've been duped and I will start doing crosswords in pencil).

Last year, I put together a compilation of forumite's favorite host segments. This year, I want to know your favorite MST3k song. Doesn't matter if it's a song by the MST crew or a song from one of the movies. Pick one favorite song, and it will appear in a compilation video. ^_^

If two or more people pick the same song, we'll have to either:

a) Stage a fight to the death.
b) Somebody will have to pick a different song.
c) Attribute one song to more than one forumite.
d) Pillow fight! :D

Also, I don't have any of season 11 or 12, so if your favorite song is in one of those seasons, I'll have to ask for a video of it. ^_^;

So, what's your favorite MST song? :D

Who did best acting job on all MST3K movies? I think lead dude in Tormented and Jack Elam in Girl in Lover's Lane might be candidates.

Hello, everyone! This isn't necessarily MST-related. I just thought I'd like to share, because essentially, I've actually grown up around a lot of you. Steve-Headed was one of the people that I talked to most, but you've seen me around! I'm an adult technically (dear God), so I just thought I'd share my recent bout. I have ranked 2nd in District 10 of Pennsylvania in District Orchestra in the String Bass section! I actually tied for first, which really impressed me. I was absolutely not expecting that, at all. Hopefully next comes regionals, then states, then the WORLD! Anyhow, I won't forget to spread the word of MST3K there! At district choir, once, I met a fellow MSTie. That was fun! He's in the military, now, so I'm sure he's sharing it there, as well! I just thought I'd share. I know it's unrelated, but I just thought I'd share! As a high school senior, it's my biggest achievement. Alright. Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming.

I hope next season does 'The People that Time Forgot' the sequel to 'The land that time forgot'. The Doug McClure movies (This and 'At the Earths Core') were my favorite ones of the reboot and became instant classics for me, there actually fun movies, easy to riff and the monster costumes are so cheesy but awesome at the same time. Doug McClure is just awesome and I almost want to watch the sequel just to find out what happens to them stuck there after the sub blows up but I would love to watch an MST3K version. All three movies are based on books by Edgar Rice Burroughs so they've done 2/3 of the Doug McClure scifi movies that were made. Anyone else want this too?

Did it... I survived The Gauntlet. Any other takers finish it too? Thoughts? I feel like they ironed out a lot of the rough stuff from the previous season. Riffs felt better paced. Plus a really cool cameo! Hopefully, more in the pipeline?

My disdain for the latter and, certainly, the new seasons is no secret. It's like the 'extended pun' of the invention exchange ad infinitum, ad nauseum. So, here's the set-up. Joel's great-grandchild, Joel IV, is about to premier Season 87. Given the current MST3k trend, possible technological advancements, the weather on Mars or whatever...what would the new season look like? Include characters, films, formats or anything else considered apropos. My analyst said I should face my worst nightmares.

I just finished watching The Magic Sword where Frank is drastically affected by the biohazard...stuff and is a skeleton at the end. It just occurred to me that Dr. F. has got to be a genius when you consider all the things he does to Frank and the very next episode, Frank is back to normal again, no harm done. I'm amazed!

So in Lords of the Deep, that one guy looks like Ryan Stiles SO MUCH. It's uncanny. So much that I made some research to see if Stephen Davies was related to Ryan haha....

MST3K was a big part of my childhood. My dad showed it to me when i was like 6 or 7 years old back in the mid 90s, and some of my best childhood memories were of me and my dad watching this show together and laughing. I didnt really like season 11 when it first came out, jonah is ok but i was sad they changed voice actors for the bots. I just rewatched season 11 after watching the gauntlet and I like it a lot now though. (It might help that I smoked some bud this time to help get the giggles going) At the earths core was hilarious, the old guy is just perfect to rip on and every time they copied his ridiculous voice I just lost it. And the santa episode is one of my new favorites, "I'm just a wittle baby santa!"

I'm now working my way through a Canadian podcast called It's Just A Show. Definitely recommended. One of the hosts has also started an offshoot podcast called A Part Of Our Scare-Itage which gets into even more detail about Canucksploitation a la' Zombie Nightmare. (They've already done my ultimate dream movie for future MST3K seasons: The Uncanny. =^..^= )

I may never recover from the Sexy Reptilicus novelization/fanfic episode, though. The things I do in the name of cross-border goodwill, I tell ya'...
