Am I understanding this wrong, or is the dirtiest line in the whole series in Monster A Go Go, where the man fixing the woman's car says "lift your hood," and Tom says "oh you'd like that wouldn't you?" Is there another interpretation of hood other than...

I'm a little late, but I just wanted to register my approval of Jonah and the new season of MST3k. I've watched the first 6 episodes, and they're good. I like that they kept the spirit of the show, but weren't afraid to try new gimmicks. Good!


OT: Starwolf review!

I know you've all been waiting with bated breath for my review of the Starwolf series by Edmond Hamilton. For those unaware, Fugitive Alien and Fugitive Alien 2 come from a Japanese TV series which was based on a trilogy written by an American scifi author in the 60s.

The short version is that I loved the books. They're only about 150 pages a piece and there's no important societal message being given. It's just a good story with an interesting couple of characters.

I'm not going to spoil the story here in case anyone wants to read the books, but I'll put a full review in my profile posts. That way I can be long-winded, too. :)

Long version below:

First, to recap the background that is different from the movies. Humans did not evolve on Earth. They are the remnants of a much older species who populated most of the galaxy eons before and the different planets all have different humanoid inhabitants based on evolutionary pressures. Earth is the oldest civilization and they are mostly Mercs (mercenaries) who have a strict code of honor and try not to use lethal force unless absolutely necessary. Varna is a planet of thieves. It is a heavy-gravity planet and they use that to help them in their raids because every other planet's gravity feels like nothing to them. They got star-faring technology from Earth and then turned right around and used it for plunder. The Varnans have thin, golden fur and Chane (Ken) has always stood out as a human because of his dark hair and eyes. His parents were missionaries to Varna and died under the pressure of the heavy gravity, but Chane, who was born there, managed to survive and grew up in it, giving him the same abilities as any Varnan. Dilullo (Capt. Joe) had a family who died in a house fire, not a Varna raid.

Starwolf #1: The Weapon from Beyond -- In this one, we meet the two main characters: Morgan Chane (which would be Starwolf Ken) and John Dilullo (Capt. Joe). The story opens with Chane on the run from the Starwolves because he killed a fellow Starwolf (Ssander) after a raid (NOT on Earth) and Ssander had tried to steal some of Chane's loot. Ssander tried to kill Chane and injured him, but Chane killed him in return. He went on the run and blew up his own ship in order to destroy evidence that he was a Starwolf. He's found by Dilullo who almost immediately figures out what he is. The events of Fugitive Alien and the first half of Fugitive Alien 2 are mostly contained in this book, although there are obviously a lot of changes.

Starwolf #2: The Closed Worlds -- It starts out on Earth. Chane is wandering around, bored, and Dilullo tells him that he'd better not get in any trouble or his secret will be told (YOU'RE STUCK HERE! is not spoken, but the threat is there). So he travels to Wales, where his parents had grown up before traveling to Varna and meets some of his parents friends and then makes some Welsh pals there until Dilullo calls him back to go on another mission. This one is to find a rich merchant's lost brother who went to the so-called Closed Worlds to find some major secret. Chane does meet a girl in this one, her name is Vreya.

Starwolf #3: The World of the Starwolves -- Dilullo has tried to retire but Chane (who is bored again and doesn't have a real Merc mission going) lures him out of his hopeless retirement to go to a mysterious planet to retrieve some stolen jewels called the Singing Suns. The mission turns into a disaster and Chane decides to risk death by returning to Varna in order to recoup their losses and get some tasty revenge. In this one, we meet Graal, a Varnan woman who teases Chane but doesn't despise him completely. She plays a very minor role.

I'll write longer summaries of the stories and post them on my profile, but it might not be until tomorrow. Suffice it to say that I loved this series and I'm so glad that I bought it. Hooray for Fugitive Alien and MST3K for introducing me to these books!

Got my collected edition. It's been a lot of fun. I wish the project had lasted longer, and that I'd made it to more live shows. The special feature of Josh monologuing into the camera is interesting, especially watching him talk his way around saying that he and Joel don't get along (and that's why he left the show back in the day). If you've got a strong liver, try taking a drink every time he says "you know." My one disappointment is that the video (for the latter half of the collection) is all from their earlier shows. The one live show I attended was the farewell tour. I guess they evolved the scripts over time, taking out the riffs that fell flat and adding some new ones. Because even though it's the same movie, my favorite riffs aren't there. Still, I'm really happy that they released this collection. Now I just have to figure out what to do with my extra copy of The Wasp Woman...

Right in the middle of the tour, Saturday's panel is the most likely place for a renewal announcement, IMHO. I say this not only as a Season 11 backer, but also as someone who thinks the writers consistently nailed the tone and Jonah hosted very, very well: There may as well be a Season 12. What's it going to hurt you, huh?

Hot damn diggety, gang! Just finished scoring my seat for the early show, Eegah, at the Lincoln Theatre in DC, July 9.

Any other DC/area MSTies coming to this one? Who's up for a meet-up before the show? There's some nice little joints along U Street where you can grab a "towski" or three and hang out until the doors open (doors at 5pm, show at 6pm).
