Mike is so funny and does such a better job than Joel. I hope I don't tick anyone off, it's only my opinion.

Um, maybe you should call a doctor. I don't think rubbing water on his forehead is going to do anything for the gaping chest wound.

(And I have to say that I think Mickey Hargitay is a near perfect example of someone who is trying really hard but is just a terrible actor.)

This story is sad, and also...sad.
But spooky, too.
The spooky meta angle- that you'll see if you watch the short newscasts videos below- is that Coleman Francis's 1963 Palmdale Airfield setting looks like it was simply shuttled through a wormhole to present-day Lodi, California, (City Motto: "Just try not to get stuck here, sucker!") with unfortunate accompanying body count.

[Insert appropriate season opening]

[Satellite of Love - Bridge. The guys are leaning on the counter and
laughing]

MIKE: And what about Cartman and the Rainbow thing?
TOM: ANAL PROBE is still my favorite. That or BIG GAY AL.

[They all notice Cambot is on and Crow and Servo stop laughing.]

MIKE: Err, hi. Mike Nelson here on the Satellite of Love. We just got
done watching South Park's first season.
CROW: In its foul entirety.
TOM: We were disgusted by it's crass vulgarity.
CROW: Yes siree bob.

[Mike looks confused]

MIKE: Hold on. You guys were just...
CROW: It's obvious you misunderstood us, Mike.
TOM: See, due to the awesome and well deserved power of the rating
system in our day to day lives...
CROW: Which we now realize is as it should be.
MIKE: What about ANAL PROBE and BIG GAY AL?

[Tom and Crow are pointedly ignoring Mike]

TOM: ...we avoided watching it until curiosity overcame our good sense.
CROW: Boy have we ever learned our lesson!
TOM: Absolutely, Crow. The moment we forsook state-mandated decency and
journeyed down the arduous road of self-discovery all gosh darn heck
broke loose.
CROW: Without censorship, how could we live? All the decisions we'd be
faced with, day in and day out....
TOM: "If you can't have someone else do it for you, preferably a duly
appointed government official, it ain't worth having done," that's my
new motto.

[A look of dawning comprehension passes over Mike's face]

MIKE: Oo! I got one...
CROW: I shudder at the mere remembrance of the thoughts that once
plagued my mind.
MIKE: Indeed. Without the NC17 rating for movies, TV-MA for television
and, most importantly, the now mandatory V-chip, think of all the
things parents might have to do for their own childrens.
TOM: Screen movies and television, read them books, love them...

[Mike wipes away a tear]

MIKE: My parents had to love me. The government hadn't grown wise
enough by that point to love us more than our parents ever could. It
was too much for dad. I think it contributed to his heart attack. He
died because there was no one to play big brother.

[Mike starts to wail]

CROW: Hush, Mike. It's a vicious cycle that arises from the lack of
good clean censorship. It's good to be living in these more enlightened
times.
MAGIC VOICE: Commercial break in 5

[Commercial sign]

MIKE: We'll be [sob] right back

[commercial break]

[Satellite of Love]

MIKE: Welcome back
TOM: Mike felt that we should offer an apology for that sarcastic
condemnation of what we perceive as censorship.
CROW: We were just trying to advocate freedom of expression.
TOM: All we ask is that you, our loyal viewers, go forth and crush
every world view that doesn't believe in tolerance and free speech.
MIKE: And if this wasn't clear, we apologize.

MST3K Tour Kills It In DC

So, the Lisner Auditorium show last night killed, featuring Jonah, Joel and the Bots with Pearl's clone hosting in a game show format, and they riffed that mofo fast'n'furious, hitting the late-century pop-culture references especially hard. Oh, man, yeah.

The movie was The Brain, some finely-aged 1980s Canadian cheese in the classic monster flick tradition -- with a Corman-level monster, Corman-level villains, and Corman-level teenagers who nobody believes but who are the only hope for the Earth and all that standard-issue shit, except with mullets and blowouts, because '80s. At least the teenagers are played by actors who can at least pass for actual teenagers, I'll say that for the goddamn '80s.

The "hook" of the plot follows in a grand MST3K tradition, and they foreshadow the living shit out so badly that you might as well hang a goddamn lampshade on it, and that makes it even better/worse. I'll add no more paint to the picture in order not to spoil it for anybody here with tickets for The Brain.

...and I've just now realized I haven't posted a frothing stoned show review like this since the last Dead tour. Man, is it nice.

Joel's jumpsuit and Dr. F's green lab coat are iconic enough that if I see someone else wearing them I immediately think of them. It got me pondering about other garb in tv history if you saw someone wear that you would think instantly of a tv character. Being a big fan, I immediately thought of Columbo. Maybe Archies Bunker's white shirt( with or without his fuzzy jacket) and Urkel's suspenders. Oh, and Matt Dillon's pinkish shirt and vest. Oh, 1 more Fred Sanford's outfit. Dang, I'm old.

Many people are probably aware of how much I love Werewolf. I gush about it way too much, but the other day, I was thinking about the episodes where it really seems like the guys are having fun and that fun is incredibly infectious. And amazingly enough, it wasn't Werewolf that came to mind when I was thinking about this.

It was Danger! Death Ray in season 6. I was having a bad day and, even though I never watch the episodes out of order, I decided to pull that one up and watch it, and I was struck by just how much fun the episode is. There aren't any riffs that carry over into other episodes that I can think of. The movie is no Manos or Sidehackers or Gamera. It's really a rather run-of-the-mill 007 wannabe.

That being said, I can't get over just how much fun the guys seem to be having doing it. I'll grant that it may just be good acting, but Trace really seems to be in a giggling mood. Tom is singing almost constantly (Watermelon Man!), and they all just seem to be having a good time with it. And that enjoyment is infectious.

There's a comment on the episode page where someone asks why in the world so many people like the episode because they didn't see it as being anything special. And perhaps it's not, but it's FUN. It's kind of like the scene in Brute Man where Mike just loses it, only it's the whole movie.

Are there any other episodes that you feel are just fun because the guys are having so much fun?

While watching the News Hour Wed. night I spotted everyone's favorite Gesture Professor in a story about Miami being swallowed by the ocean. They showed a clip from the film "The Unchained Goddess" which prophesied Miami's doom back in the 60's and lo and behold, there he was! I really wanted to hear him say "Miami's going down, down, down into the ocean..."

OK- Since UncleDes put his longtime Fintoozler mystery behind him, maybe you can help me:

"Bride of the Monster", during a Bela monologue, Trace, in what seems to be a character voice exclaims:
"I'm a GENIUS! Thank you!"

It sounds very familiar. At first I thought it was Michael Keaton from "Night Shift", but apparently not.
Mary Jo may or may not do a variation on it when she says "I'm a GENIUS!" in the series' last episode, Idunno.
Do you? There's an imaginary cookie in it for you.
