Watching The New Episodes

So with the new episodes coming next month, what would be your schedule for watching them? Because sure on Netflix we can watch all the new episodes in one sitting if we have the time. But I think this is too special to be watching them all in a few days or one day.

I'm thinking I would watch one new episode on each Friday and have encores of that episode throughout the week too starting on April 14th when its released. Like watching it on TV again. That or watching one new episode every other day or at least one new episode a day. It would be too long to watch all the new episodes in one day anyway. Even for those of us who have that kind of time or can mix our work with watching these episodes. These days any of us can make the time no matter where we are with smartphones and tablets, but still. I think I'm going to still watch it as if being aired on TV. One new episode each Friday or Saturday and have encores until the next time.

But I know some will see it all in a few days or so anyway. Whatever. That's what makes things like Netflix so great. Watch it whenever you're good and ready with no excuses of missing it save death...I bet they have something like Netflix in Heaven or hell though. XD

My brother and I still have a running joke on the line "What's he smoking, a field mouse?" I believe it was a character sitting on horse with a cigar, but unsure. Anyone know which episode?

I just saw a trailer for the reboot with cinematics. Seeing Crow stand up higher in the theatre, seeing Tom's hoverskirt working, but still seeming to be the same feel of the series? I knew this was going to be good! The trailer can be found here, and it makes me all the more confident we did the right thing! : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ct0Z2bQndM

Traditions!

so I wake up today (saturday) and I thought to myself "self? I wonder what other Msties do for traditions or common place things they do for watching MST3K?

Some of my last vivid memories of MST3K were waking up on saturdays during the Scifi Era (im trying to remember if at this point there were in reruns of the show) and would get my bowl of cereal and just start the day off right. I still do this today as I am getting ready to find a few episodes of the Scifi Era to watch, My question to every one is, if you all have some sort of tradition or a weekly thing you do to watch MST3K?

Pizza time

A bit of background into this post: One or two times a week I post jokes and humorous anecdotes on Facebook. The problem is, I haven't added any "friends" in at least five years and don't care to, so my audience is pretty much limited to cousins and those unfortunate people from late high school/early college that haven't dropped me yet. Not a good medium to spread my humor, but Twitter has a character limit I can't abide by. (My jokes need at least 200 characters, damn it.)

Here's tonight's post. I liked it, and I thought it deserved a wider audience. Let me know if this kind of forum post isn't welcome in the future.

Gypsy was cast!

During this whole Revival thing, my main question was: what about Gypsy?! I really wanted to know whom would be playing her! And ladies and gentlemen, we have our answer! She is not going to be played by a male this time! A female will play her! So exciting!
Wikipedia Page:
Hodgson confirmed that Gypsy will appear in the revival series ("Season 11"), where she will be played by Rebecca Hanson, an alum of The Second City. Hodgson reworked how Gypsy would be constructed and interact with the Satellite crew as to correct some of the faults he found in her appearance in the original series; while she still operates the ship, the power of cloud computing allows this responsibility to be shared among all the 'bots, and she will be able to dedicate more of her computation cycles to participating in conversation including appearing in some of the theater riffing.

Yes, the new series hasn't started quite yet, but for subscribers, there are 20 classic episodes of MST3K appearing from tomorrow on NetFlix to fill the gap.

Yes, we can watch them all on here, but if they are official, then the A/V quality should be the best available.

I have a bit of a problem. :/ I want to make a compilation video of innuendo in MST3k, but due to re-releases of MST3k episodes, The Castle of Fu Manchu has been taken down. A completely understandable move, but I just cannot make an innuendo video without that glorious and dirty bicycle saddle joke. Is there anyone that could help me locate that clip? :s

Anyone know whatever became of Jerry & Sylvia? Was there a funding cut? Did they finish their internship? Did someone ask for a raise? Were they called back to the Underworld? Seems like everyone got a fond farewell - even Dr Ehrhardt got a mention and his photo on a milk carton. But Jerry and Sylvia? Bubkes! This seems grossly unfair, after all their hard work and support of Dr Forrester and the Deep 13 mission statement...


Get Out (of the comments section)

I heartily recommend the movie Get Out if you haven't seen it yet. It's a fantastic horror/thriller with comedic elements and smart, nuanced satire. That's all you need to know to see it. (The only thing I knew about the movie going in was that it's a horror movie written and directed by comedian Jordan Peele, and I think that helped the experience.)

However, I would strongly advise everyone to stay the hell away from the comments section of any article or video discussing the movie.

Honestly, if you haven't seen the movie, you have no right to get offended by the premise and act like you know what it's really about. But that doesn't stop a lot of people who just watched the trailer, it seems.

I highly recommend Mary Jo & Bridget's new short on Rifftrax.com, "The Maturing Woman." It's from the 70's about the gender-specific societal problems encountered by women over 40, their riffing is quite good, and there's some fun surprises. Classic them.

Not that I'm just looking for full blown meltdowns. Stuff like Bots vs. Commando Cody also counts.

Mine: The Hot-Dog Monster from "Party Beach" (goofy, top-heavy design with wonderfully cheesy vocalizations) tied with The Creature (from zee Black Lagoon, for classic design and terrific, brassy fanfares upon entering the scene.)

[Was originally thinking of the rubber-suited variety, but, hey -- any MSTie monster favorites will do, latex-based, thin-skinned, and overt -- or more covert, psychological, thick-skinned, sociopathic, or what-have-you.]

Best worst performance

Jordan Carpenter - 26 days ago

MST3K films are not known for their excellent acting, but I've long been fascinated by the TRULY MEMORABLY BAD performances. So what's your favorite?

Just a note, I don't mean merely incompetent. I mean what results when a not-completely-untalented person commits to a bad performance with gusto. The best example I can think of is the bald evil wizard from Deathstalker and the Warriors from Hell. He's not totally bad (I legit like some things, like the way he underplays his first meeting with the hero), but most of his choices are just bizarre and fascinating.
