MST3K

Wed Dec 04, 2002 11:10 am

So, for those of you who remember, who remembers Mystery Science Theatre 3000? I thought it was the absolute funniest show on TV for a while. They only air the last season on the sci-fi channel where I live, and even then it's at 8 in the morning.

I downloaded "Puma Man" from some place a while ago, and I just sat there laughing my ass off.

So, who wants to relive the good ole days of MST3k?

live forever and stay beautiful,

I love MST3K! Is it just me, or did Sci-fi just cancel MST3K? It used to be aired at 10:00 on saturday mornings, but it hasnt been aired for two weeks now.

I need my MST3K fix!!!! The rumor is that Comedy Centrals time is up regarding SNL reruns. They will no longer have the rights to them early into 2003. SO I have seen petitions around trying to convince Comedy Central to bring back MST3K into SNLs time slots.

I sure hope so. Sad

MST3k was great, the Joel episodes where better then the Mike episodes.

Rhino Records have been releasing DVD's of the episodes, some of them include both the original uncut and the MST3K versions of the film.

That would be awesome if Comedy Central would bring back MST3K. Frankly I am sick of the SNL reruns they show 5x a day anyways.

Man that was a great show. The best episodes are the ones where they had those shorts from the 1950s. Classic, classic stuff.

I LOVED MST3K. It was so hilarious. I haven't seen it in months though, since they cancelled it. I just never wake up in time for the re-runs Big grin. Oh well, I'd love to see them again.

I really missed MST3K when Sci-Fi picked it up, because my cable company only offer the Sci-Fi channel to their digital cable subscribers. I would love it if Comedy Central could bring it back, it's a great show to waste time with. I have to agree that the Joel years were better than the Mike years. The jokes and the shows were a lot more funnier than the later seasons. I always thought that instead of replacing Joel, they should have just let Tom Servo and Crow host the show, because they have all the funny quips anyway. If Comedy Central doesn't pick up the reruns, I think it would be a good fit on either FX, USA, or TVLand.

Mike was the head writer forthe show, even during the Joel years, so it probably seemed a natural fit. I think the movies were better in the early years.

Hilarious. The smile really doesnt come off my face until the show has ended. Occaisionally, I will find it on Sci-Fi or Encore, once in a while I will rent the VHS tape from Hollywood Video. The name of the show really doesnt give it justice though, MST3k sounds like a Sci-Fi show which I am sure really turns some people off. The title should just be "Making fun of bad movies"

Even the robots couldn't make the "Manos, Hand of Fate" episode watchable. It was that bad.

Two classics:

"Rocket Attack USA"
"The Pod People"

Actually, the DVD one that I currently like the best is "The Crawling Hand"

It has the original uncut version of the film on it, which starred the skipper from Gilligans Island.
