I honestly looked for this earlier today but gave up pretty quickly. There was a pic of Kevin holding it up somewhere.

Also, I though Bill did a pretty good job of sounding like Crow.

It would have been fun to do for their fan mail thing at the panel yesterday, unless Joel didn't remember it happening and just thought somebody was a huge jerk.

Maybe they're saving it for episode 2 or 3. Jonah finds it buried somewhere. Tom has no clue what it means.

Or best Kevin and Bill are Tom and Crow for the beginning of episode one and it has to change over to Baron and Hampton for some reason.

I tried to use Hobgoblins to introduce my wife and it took her two years to give the show another shot.

My fiancee absolutely cannot stand Mike, to the point that she won't watch any episodes with him hosting. She hadn't seen the show before I introduced her to it, and didn't know Joel vs. Mike was a thing.
The first episode she really liked was Pod People, so add that to the list of good introductory episodes, I guess.

Apoplexy posted:

Monster A Go-Go is literally the worst thing I've ever seen, up to and including Mr. Hands, 2girls1cup, 1guy1jar, and Batman vs. Superman.

It doesn't usually get cited as their worst movie, but for me it's Lost Continent. A whole lot of nothing padded out to feature length by more nothing. It's an offensively boring waste of film, and provided so little to work with that not even MST3K could render it watchable. Rock climbing!

And if we count shorts, I think the oldest thing they riffed was the Phantom Creeps series (1939) in Season 2.

I don't think that's gonna happen; Mike doesn't necessarily like to work blue either. He and the guys will crank it up for Sketchfest because it's an older crowd of comedy nerds, but I suspect they like to keep things clean at RT Live-branded events for the sake of the families who might be watching.

I kinda think it's funnier that way too. Nothing like a good euphemism.

When the show was still on, I was 12 and my sister was 8, and my 8 year old sister legit liked Hobgoblins enough to get mad at Mike and the bots mocking it. I showed it to her recently, and she said her kid self must have been insane.

My dad did that for This Island Earth. He saw it in the theater as a kid, it was one of his favorite movies, and so our watching of the MST was interspersed with "they're leaving out the good parts!"

Well your dad was kinda right if the synopsis I read was accurate, the edit was really noticeable and I haven't even seen the film. I hope no one ever made that defence of Sidehackers though.

Yeah, the story of making MST: the Movie was that the studio forced them to make a super short movie under the odd impression that people didn't want to see comedies that were over 80 minutes. That's why the thing was edited to hell and back.

I thought so, I'd heard about the Sidehackers edit and I just couldn't believe that the type of film like This Island Earth would require such drastic cutting for a similar reason. I liked the MST3K Movie when I eventually watched it but I was really taken aback when I saw the runtime and the really clumsy edits. I saw the episode with the Man vs Soup skit a week later and I think I know what the inspiration for that was.

I legitimately love the film (and the novel), so my irritation about the cuts is more based around the hilarity of what they took out. Like Brack blowing up the German with his space lasers.

How do you justify cutting an exploding German from a movie???

In this household, 'Are you in Europe? Do you need an adaptor' is in almost every day use, delivered in the same flat tone as in the sketch.

And if your hands were made of metal, that would mean something.

Also, if we're making a party mix tape, I think we need look no further than Pod People -- 'Idiot Control Now' and Joel and the Bots' take on Trumpy's Magical Things are essential.

I think if we listed all the great ones, we'd be left with an entire episode list. Even the not that spectacular ones have something that cracks somebody up, and the rest will vary depending on which families turned which bits into in-jokes. My friends definitely adopted Agent From H.A.R.M's Bond sting.

Yeah, the big quoted one in my family was always 12 To The Moon, which rarely ever seems to make any lists.

And as for songs it's hard to go wrong with Pumaman's "When you want the flavor of bacon in a dip" sung to the main action theme.

I don't really quote it, but I've gone on record before saying 12 To The Moon is one of my favorite episodes. I love both the riffing and the movie itself, just because it's so sincere. They really thought they were making a serious sci fi epic that was saying something about the Unknown and the peoples the world coming together. Plus I love the little things like how they had to do all their navigation math on the fly by hand.

I like to think of The Phantom Planet as a sequel to 12 To The Moon. They both have that sincerity you're talking about, which is probably because they were both written by Fred Gebhardt. Also they share a bunch of cast members.

And speaking of 12 To The Moon, one of the director's other films needs to be either in the new MST3k season or on Rifftrax eventually.

They Saved Hitler's Brain certainly does not share that sincerity.

...Seriously? You never noticed the ancient guy in both movies?

But seriously, if you look at Francis X Bushman's IMDB page, dude had a pretty amazing career from pretty much the dawn of film until he passed away. Dude was in the original Ben Hur.

Also I can't believe we're getting a loving remake of goddamned BEN HUR. Jesus Christ, Hollywood try remaking some poo poo movies. On that note, what are some MST'd movies that you all think wouldn't be half bad if it wasn't for a few minor tweaks? (This Island Earth excepted.)

Put me down for The Dead Talk Back. Really, it's the goofy acting that puts it into MST material, the actual plot is kind of clever and the ending twist out-Shyamalans Shyamalan.

I can't recall any MST3K movie I've unironically enjoyed, but I remember thinking the guy who played the villain in The Rebel Set gave a better performance than the movie deserved. Also the mummy from The Robot vs. The Aztec Mummy could have been convincingly creepy in a less awful movie.
