Well, I just watched "Racket Girls" (Experiment 616), and now I can't stop thinking of the Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling (GLOW), which I used to watch on Channel 50 in DC (back when there was still a bit of fun left in local UHF) back around '89 and '90. I was starting to get tired of the WWF and NWA -- too much cultural stereotyping and jingoistic invective for me -- and I caught GLOW one Saturday morning, and it was just so goddamn' weirded out somehow that it became part of my Saturday morning viewing. As the SOL crew say during the climactic chick-fight scene in "Leech Woman" -- "When women fight on-screen, who wins? The American viewing public!"

I love a good evil laugh, especially when it's painfully contrived. And MST3K is a hotbed of tentative villains, each with their own take on the "evil laugh." Which, in your own estimation, is best? Movie and villain...

What's the deal with the "let me move this condom out of the way" joke every time a character on-screen opens his wallet? I've heard this riff scattered through maybe four or five movies, and probably four or five times in "The Incredibly Strange Creatures Etc." alone.

I get a laff out of it, sure, but what's the deal with that? Is it an inside joke of some kind? Is there some kind of weird story behind it?

Just watched "Fire Maidens Of Outer Space" entirely on its mention in the host segment from "Radar Secret Service" in which Frank, in his German Scientist disguise, explains the principle of Hypno-Helio Static Stasis... and maa-aan, I gotta tell ya, "Fire Maidens", minute for minute, contains more Hypno-Helio Static Stasis AND Deep Hurting than "Radar Secret Service" and "Hercules Vs. The Moon Men" combined. We're talking totally off-scale HHSS here, along with great steaming slabs of Deep Hurting.

Needless to say, if you still haven't seen Experiment 416 -- "Fire Maidens Of Outer Space" -- yet, see it, and see it NOW. And, HURT.

And now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go and recover with a pint of Guinness and "The Beatniks".

Why didn't MST3K ever riff any 70s Chopsocky movies? You would think there would be alot of material there.

Does anyone else out there agree with me that the new Netflix MST3K is just not very good? . The movie choices are great and the riffing is....ok. And some of the host segments are pretty remarkable for all the work and practice they must've required. But to me the show just seems over the top. Like its really trying too hard to be bigger and better and faster paced than the original.
. I know most of this is Joel's doing and that still does nothing to soften the blow for me. I watched all the episodes at least twice because I really WANTED to like it.
. There are 2 fan-made mst3k episodes riffing the Gamera movies (Jiger and Viras). These ones are great! They really capture the feel and humor of the first 5 seasons. Check it out if you haven't seen them. Search for "Branzant" on youtube.
. But other than that, everything after Diabolik has been a disappointment.
But I do love RiffTrax, Cinematic Titanic, The Mads, and Film Crew.

Rysov Pipple's extremely popular series of forum posts continues to be popular as ever, so with volume 3 getting big, here's the fourth round.

Recalling Rysov's rules:
This is sort of like word association, but different. The rules are that your response has to be MST/RT/CT related and has to have (at least in your mind) a connection of some sort to the previous post, however literal or liberal that connection may be.

The last riff in #3, from BluePedal: "zzzzzzzzzz....bra snap...toke...bra snap...bra snap...toke"

What can you tell us that will provide a little bit more insight into our favorite riffed movies? I got a little bit obsessed with Moon Zero Two, and just bought the DVD, 8mm film, a foreign language promo pack, and a signed photo of Catherine Schell in her Gumby wedding outfit. Here's the Julie Driscoll Moon Zero Two theme, taken from the French compilation "Maniac Soundtracks". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xX8wXiZT7rw and also (bizarrely) on the Hammer Legacy Soundtrack Collection "Quatermass and the Pit". There are two extra tracks at the end NOT from QMatP: Electronic Music and Moon Zero Two.

I can't seem to find an actual soundtrack album, so it may never have existed, but my guess would be that there may be one in a non-English language (?).

This question has been asked before, but I thought I'd bring it back now that new MSTs are on the way. What movies, that they could get the rights to of course, would you like to see them tackle. My top 3 for now are
1) The Giant Claw - seems like a can't miss.
2) From Hell It Came - Rivals Claw for funniest creature of all time.
3 and 3a) - The Boy who Cried Werewolf (1973) and The Beast Must Die. I'd like to see another werewolf movie and these seem ripe. I wouldn't mind the Oliver Reed one, also.

What's an episode that every else seems to dislike or never talk about, that you really love? Mine would have to be Robot Holocaust (Experiment 110). I know season 1 gets a bad rep, and i'm not saying that it doesn't deserve it sometimes, but i just can't help but love this episode it feels just kind of different then most MST episodes it's got just some magic that makes it all click, it's hard to explain. The movie is one of the most hilarious and interesting films i think I've ever seen, and the journey is honestly really fun, especially with the SOL Crew. This is probably in either my top 5 or 10 episodes, but i feel a lot of people would definitely disagree with me on that.


Pairings Poll: Spoken Word Song + MST3K Episode

Calling on the Best Brains brain trust here -- it seems that some of the most mockworthy pop culture lies in dramatic "spoken word" segments of rock songs. I remember some teen angst / unrequited love spoken word in 1950s pop. Having trouble finding them. Why not pair them with and episode, like wine with food?

Pairings:

You know what needs a MST3K-style riffing? Old kids TV animation. There's a bunch of Japanese made-for-the-French/Spanish/Flemmish/Andoran-market shows I'd just eat up... The Mysterious Cities of Gold, Ulysses 31... you guys get any of this stuff? Riffing on Jase and the Wheeled Warriors - that'd be glorious.

I love most of the show's host segments. However, my favorites include a lot of little details that help expand the character dynamics and the world. For example, I was watching Eegah for my most recent "Mitchy Science Theater" episode that I was working on and noticed how many little details are there. Like, when Joel and the bots are talking about their own personal Hell and while that's going on, Joel is just doing some tailor work for Crow. Or, when they were talking about families in the 60's and making jiffy pop popcorn. All of these things just add to the experience and makes the host segments just kinda feel very natural. For these sketches, they could have easily just had the conversation, but instead, they added these little details, all the way down to Crow saying "ouch" to the pins being put on his shirt. I love attention to detail in MST3K because it helps me love the characters even more. Do you have some favorite moments with little details that make a big difference?

What's the oddest reaction you've ever seen to a riffed movie? I think we all know one person who says: "Why are they talking over the movie?"
