Question is prompted by hearing someone say "no-one ever laughs if they are alone: it's a crowd activity". This sounds like bollocks to me: you?

Apologies if this has been covered, but it occurred to me all of a sudden that I haven't heard (or I missed) any mention of Gypsy in the MST3K reboot. She was always a handful, and didn't ever get fully developed in the original series, so it would make sense to just retire the character -- just wondering what the official word is.

Happy (early) Turkey Day! Anyone know the exact link for the MST3k Turkey Day Marathon? Once I know what it is, I'll make it the Watch-It-Together episode of the day.

Does anyone out there know the origin/significance of the admonition to "Turn down your lights (where applicable)"?

The Best Riff section of an episode... Boy, it's a mess sometimes.
After one innocuous commenter wondered why they were they only one posting "best riffs" on a Watch It Together episode, I felt I needed to tell them it's not the place for repeating riffs you found funny.

This is what I said:
Before submitting a Best Riff, I use Control+F to see if anyone has done that riff before me. And if so, I give that preexisting riff a laugh.

I can't be the only one going through an episode's "best riffs" and getting frustrated that many riffs get repeated two to five times. Whaddaya think, sirs?

I may be misinterpreting things, but a lot of the Joel-versus-Mike conversation appears to have been centered around Joel being more goofy and family friendly, while Mike was more adult, So when I was watching Teenagers from Outer Space last week, I was a bit surprised to realize that I'd missed for years the bit where Dr Forrester is giving the kiss of life to Resussa Anny and says "that's a funny taste!"... and I'd missed the look on Frank's face as the key to what actually happened. Salty stuff!

i became curious about the making of TfOS and discovered some 'real-life' was going on behind the scenes. Much of the info comes from two of the actors, a husband and wife, who were in the film and Wiki. 'Thor', with his wife 'Hilda', loaned 'Joe' $5000 to finance the film giving them roles. They had to sue for the money years later. 'Thor' and 'Hilda' claim 'Joe' and 'Derek' were having an affair during production complicating matters. According to family and friends, once filming wrapped, 'Derek' disappeared and has not been heard from since. Perhaps he was sent home for TORTURE!

This one is right at the top of my list of perfect episodes for a newbie's first MST3K experience. It's just got it all -- great host segments, great riffing, and a perfectly riffable movie. Laughable "monster," horrible acting, ridiculous premises -- and the dialogue has all these pauses, sometimes in the middle of a sentence, sometimes in the middle of a WORD. Just makes it easy for them. The movie basically leans into the punches.

All you internet mavens have probably heard of Henri Le Chat Noir's famous YouTube videos about a French speaking spoiled house cat filled with ennui.....shot in black and white with subtitles. But if you need a quick laugh check out, they're 2 min long, and filmed by a film student, whose rapid rise to fame landing him a Little Friskys contract. Not that I like cats...being a dog and all..

Here’s a phenomenon I’ve seen mentioned briefly in interviews or MST documentaries – easier if I just cite an example. Watching an episode with my 12 year old grandson, the movie’s giant bug or whatever has left a trail of destruction in its wake, and the riff is something like “Oh, Keith Moon was here.” The kid cracks up laughing. On a hunch, I ask “Do you know who Keith Moon was?” Nope. Not a clue. Never heard of him. But he was laughing just the same – real, genuine laughter. What the hell is that? I enjoy researching and writing annotations (annotatedmst.com) to explain stuff like that, always thinking it’s “for the kids,” but maybe I needn’t bother. I’m not sure it’s just kids, either. Ever experienced this? Any theories?
