Which KTMA ep would you most like see riffed in later seasons and which trio would you like doing the riffing? Choose ones not reriffed already in later eps and feel free to choose multiple eps and trios(I like the word trio).

Which ep. did the SOL crew refer to Leonard Maltin's Guide To TV Movies? I believe it was in a season with Mike. I used to have that guide every year since the 1st edition of 1970.

One bottle of bourbon, someone close to me, and 3 episodes of MST3k. It's been too long since I've even watched the show with anyone. It's also been too long since I've participated in the forum. So hello! And konnichiwa.

Any thoughts or explanations for why the SOL crew was forced to watch the movies? It was never made clear from season K-12. Did the mads control the oxygen supply or what?

Dunno how this flew by, but music legend and Tin Pan Alley icon Leon Redbone left the planet May 30th. He was 69. Thank you for your many fine and wonderfully unique treatments of so much timeless music, and for your own humorous and homespun musings on the scene, Leon. You will be sorely missed around this neck of the woods. RIP.

Welp, I've started my gauntlet tonight. I watched the pilot and Invaders of the Deep. I am finally going to watch in order from very beginning 'til now. I was wondering for those that have done this, how long did it take for you to do this? I mean really watch the eps and not just have it on in the background or have on to fall asleep

I know this has probably been discussed many times, but not since I found this site. At least I don't remember {memory has been extra bad lately}. Anyway, what movie with 300ish or more laughs makes you think "I just don't get it". My picks are Danger! Death Ray and Laserblast. I liked both eps but apparently not as much as a lot of people.

For those few who might be wondering, Dad is well on the road to full recovery. He's still lacking a bit of stamina (understandable), but he's eating normally. He went to all of church yesterday. My mom just sent me an email that he's actually gone out to his wood shop to work. It's been probably two months since he's been out there.

So I guess I'm going to need to ask him if he's ready for me to make his favorite cookies. :)

I don't know if "Blake's Seven" ever really made it across the Atlantic, but Darrow's portrayal of Kerr Avon was a massive part of the TV-watching lives of a lot of British viewers (of a certain age).
He transcended the cheap production values and occasionally silly plot lines, to deliver us the best and worst anti-hero of them all. A class act.

So...What to watch...what to watch.
The nearly-seminal-quintessential-rock-festival-pop-culture-phenomena-document-in-movie-form is revisited in the Director's Cut tonight on TCM, 8PM EDT.

TRIVIA: Early quality work by Martin Scorsese (editor, asst. director, associate producer)
The working title of the movie was "Porta-San". No, REALLY!

The movie itself is spectacular. It's also prime riff fodder if you feel the need to to do your own version of DVD Commentary. What the hell- Build some robots! You got almost 2 1/2 hours.
If you've never seen it, you owe it to yourself to watch it.

Marcus Aurelius once said of opinion and perspective "Opinions are like-"
No. Scratch that.
Marcus Aurelius claimed “Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is perspective, not the truth.”
Prosecutors hated seeing Marcus in the jury pool.

Anyway, my name is Steve-Headed Pig-Benton. You may know me from such fanatical posts as "Season Two is the GREATEST SEASON EVER!"
Now a lot of opinion threads are hanging around, and when we talk opinions, we are really talking about "perspectives".
For instance:
1. As a child of the '60s-'70s, I like comic anarchy. Fireside Theater, Beyond the Fringe, Monty Python, Richard Pryor, George Carlin, Cheech&Chong (hey- I was a kid), National Lampoon, SNL, etc. Seasons 2-5 have a very anarchic feel, most likely because the cast and crew were just creating the show on the fly. It was constantly evolving.
2. I love creative aspects. That's why I dig the sketches during this period, even the ones that go nowhere. They were well written, it seemed like everyone had a voice in them, and they weren't afraid to fall on their collective face. Hell, we got to see Orville Redenbacher threaten to put his grandson in a home!

I could go on, but I already have, dozens of times, it seems. (I'm also back down to 1semi-functional hand. The 500 monkeys on 500 typewriters that live next door are mocking me.)
What are some of your perspectives that form your opinions on what appeals to you when watching MST3k?

Riffs that make you crack up

I'm currently watching Megaforce and there's a riff in it that makes me laugh every single time I watch, but just the line itself isn't that funny. It's the whole movie in combination with it. Something about how Kevin says it and the scene itself just makes me giggle.

"You've become a Gigaforce."

That got me thinking about MST3K riffs that just are funny without being obviously funny if you say them without the movie. One of my favorites is from Laserblast.

"Ecuadorian bat boy found alive in cave."

The riff isn't funny without the visual to back it up, but it's another of those riffs that just makes me laugh, even just thinking about it because I think of it in combination with the scene.
