Seasons "K"-3: LOVE 'EM!!

RE: the 1st couple of seasons of MST3K (& yes, I include the so-callled "K" season ("K" y, so MST3K got its start on KTMA, in Minneapolis. Anyway, my point is that although TV's Frank was a good sidekick for Dr Forrester & had his own endearing personality, I actually thought Josh (now going by "J. Elvis") Weinstein was kind of funny. I don't know why so many people are down on him. And, re the dynamic between "Larry Earhardt" & "Dr. C Forrester" was a different one than the one w/Dr F & TV's Frank; though I don't think I could say that one was better than the other. I liked them both a lot. Anyway, while Frank was more of a true sidekick, a sort of whipping post for Clay & had his own, subtle wit & kooky humor, I also enjoyed Josh's smarmy-satire style & the way he & Clay were on more equal terms than Dr. F & Frank, though, through it all (except maybe in that 1st KTMA season, when the show is still "under construction" so to speak & the 2 "mads" were not the personae they came to be, especially Dr F (in fact, when they were working at the "Satellite Loading Bay" (according to the theme song) Clay had a totally different outfit & didn't wear the trademark specs. But in Season 1 & 2 (and 3 too, but it was not as great as the 1st 2 + "season 'k'". One of the things I enjoyed about those days was the more "minimalistic" (and I don't mean in an art kind of way but as a matter of style) of "Dr F" & "Larry Earhardt" (Trace & Josh). Also, unlike many, it seems, I liked the 2nd Servo voice- after the higher pitched one stopped after about 3 or 4 episodes or maybe more, can't recall 100%. But when Josh was doing Servo's voice, the deeper one, it also had more of a deadpan action to it.

This makes an excellent theater-style Double Feature with my ~favorite~ 'truck-driving movie', the French epic of Venezuela "The Evil That Men Do" (some may have seen the Freidkin re-make 'Sorcerer', with Roy Scheider and a pair of deuce-and-a-halfs). They carry two truckloads (since they'll be lucky if ~one~ makes it) of unstable, 'sweating' nitroglycerin across the cordillera to put out a raging oil-derrick fire....the other side of the triumphant 'Creole Oil' story. Get ready for subtitles in the original, though (unless you're fluent at French).

Rondo "The Brute Man" Hatten played basically this same role in an old Sherlock Holmes movie (the ones that had Basil Rathbone as Holmes), except that instead of a bitter, "deformed" ex-collegiate football star he plays this "back-breaking" muscle for some jewel thief or whatnot that Holmes is tracking down. I guess there must've been a thing for "back-breakers" as the "bad guy" in movies for a couple minutes about 60-70 years ago.

Who is that voice in the DC-IL plane scene?

Right at 52:00 up to about 52:15 or so, when Peter Graves & the military brass guy are on the plane from DC to IL the pilot suddenly gets on the intercom-thing & tells him that they can't land at Paxton cuz of giant locusts in the way so he says to land in Chicago...anyway, I can't quite place it at the moment but that voice (we never do see who this pilot is; the plane scene is probably less than a minute). But I know that voice from somewhere: it sounds like maybe an announcer from something familiar from the 50s or 60s. Anyone else recognize that voice?

What is wrong with the "mom"?? She's making all upset about living "so close to the end of the coast" (or whatever)...THEY JUST CAME FROM FRIGGIN' SAN FRANCISCO!!! WTF??? Was she unaware that SF is ALSO "at the end of the continent" (or "Land's end" or whatever)? Did she never get west of Market St? Never knew there's plenty of beaches & sand & rocks, etc in SF too? Gawd!


Are the "live-action" puppet movies (Mysterons, etc) on MST at all related to the Thunderbirds show from the mid-60s?

Are these two marionette movies on the early MST3K shows (Revenge of the Mysterons & Invaders of the Deep (?? is that the title?) at all related to those 1965-era THUNDERBIRDS shows? It really looks like it (e.g., if you want to know what I mean, there's a 35 min. documentary on this on You Tube: I guess some people are going to do an "updated" version of the Thunderbirds stuff. But, really, if you saw the doc on YT & then saw these movies on MST, you'd understand why I'm curious!! Anyone out there know about any possible connections? Right-o.


Geologist gets hit in head with moon rock

The biggest bizarre coincedence in the history of geology. A geologist gets hit in the head with a rock known to come from the moon. A once in a million year opportunity for science. So of course, he puts it on his dresser. And doesn't know what to do with it? Then later, while contemplating his navel, wonders out loud if there might be someplace he can take it that might be able to identify it. Perhaps the other geologists at the university where he is studying geology? Could that work?!

I just noticed the actor who plays Captain Birdman of Homicide in this episode is the same guy who plays Day Drinking Grandpa in 'Teenagers From Outer Space'.

Apparently Servo noticed too because he uses the same riff - singing the theme song from 'New Zoo Review' - in both episodes (01:08:00 in this one and at 00:33:45 in 'Teenagers...')

Love the segment at the end where Joel says "I abhor you" instead of "I implore you." Of his verbal miscues this is a favorite.

The comedy central era is the best in every way, whether hosted by Joel or Mike. Trace Beaulieu was as much of an asset to the show as Kevin Murphy. Bill Corbett always seemed like he tried too hard, like the annoying kid in a group of friends who tries to fit in.
