Gee Wilikers, we live in a time and age where Superman caused more death and destruction then Godzilla has. Vote for Crow.
wtf is that op
>>82511758Crow T. Robot.
>>82511758You have to be 18 to post here
I really wanna watch that MST3K reboot, but fucking Felicia Day.Why.
>>82511911Wait, what? I haven't heard of this.
>>82511927Season 11, stars Doctor Forrester and TV's Frank's kids.
>>82511927>>82511993>>82511911And none of the original cast are coming back.
>>82511927Kickstarter for new seaon.Felicia Day and Patton Oswalt are the new Mads.
>>82512035All fairness - the new Crow voice is pretty good. Sounds pretty close to Trace Beaulieu. Servo's...eh....gonna take some getting used to.
>>82512035They're too busy with Rifftrax.Which is actually pretty decent.
>>82512049Patton Oswalt sounds like a decent choice. I can see that working. Who is doing the actual riffing?
>>82512090Pretty decent? It's been damn good everytime I've gone to one of the live shows. Which reminds me, I need to get tickets for the reunion show next month.
>>82511758Channel awesome before autism
>>82512090Does anyone remember Cinematic Titanic? It really missed the mark of what made MST3K so fun imo
>>82512080Yeah, the person who took over for Crow is a Muppet preformer. >yfw Joel originally did a show with Jim Henson company but it didn't get picked up.
>>82512397What could have been.
>>82512168>tfw Doug Walker got to meet the cast>was told to tone it back.This kills me sometimes. MST3k was a great example of how to honestly write to kids and adults. Writing great material for both without having to tip toe around too often.>tfw nothing was learned from this meeting and bit of advice.Lot of people would have loved to been in your place Doug. A lot of people.
THE MIKE EPISODES WERE OBJECTIVELY BETTER.
>>82512490>Mike vs. Joel debate.
>>82512490Cause Mike didn't try to hide his laughter.
>>82512522it's such a stupid debate toobecause all the best Joel episodes were written by Mike so they may as well be Mike episodes
>>82512609The delivery and comedic timing is different between hosts.
I'm 19 years old, and before you comment "I hate my generation" it's not that. It just sucks that I missed out on the MST3k hayday back in the 90's. Being able to watch new episodes on TV and be able to go see the live shows would have been such a blast. It feels like my connection to the show is less genuine than the hardcore fanbase who watched it from the very beginning. MST is my all time favorite show, but I just feel like I missed out on so much.
>>82511893MST3K ended over 17 years ago
>>82512472I never heard about thisGoddamit Doug, you never fail to disappoint me
>>82512645I watched a Godzilla movie with it, and found more interest with the shitty commentary other people watching the stream were doing than the one that was written for it. Maybe because it was constant while written I could ignore when actually trying to watch.
Im still wondering how they eat and breathe
>>82512730Is there any fucking reason to read whatever you just posted?
>>82512735You should really just relax.
I still think Spoony nailed it with Burton's design, it's like an unused puppet he stole onset or something.
>>82511893i don't think you're aware of how old the show is and how it doesn't air anymore for people to see it
>>82512472I got to meet them too during their cinematic titanic tour. Got all their autographs too.
>>82512218yes and youre right
>>82512087ARE THE CRYSTAL GEMS
>>82512645I'm 34. In 1991, we lived in a place where the local cable package carried Comedy Central, and I watched that show religiously. And then, after three short months of seeing every episode they aired, we moved. To a completely different state. And we didn't have the cable package with Comedy Central.I didn't see MST3K again until 1999, the last season, when my parents upgraded to the package that included sci-fi and comedy Central.I started buying VHS tapes of the show. One of the first things I downloaded was a MST3K mod for Doom 2 (sound package, replaced all the monster noises with quotes from Joel, Tom, and Crow), when Kaazaa was a functional program (like, early 00's) I downloaded at least twenty episodes, and burned every one to CD so I could watch them over and over.My relationship with MST3K has always been one of missed connections. Only since the rise of YouTube have I been able to watch the whole series, excluding the "lost episodes" from the KTMA era.
Anyone watch Subterranean Cinema 4000?
>>82511758You can leave.
The new show will be a flop. Calling it now.
>>82512035Big mention is that Mike Nelson isn't a writer for the season. That is where the show will be screwed.
>>82512751Don't bother, I just read it. It's film snobbery that complains you can't watch things Manos uncut now, and that M3TK only exists thanks to the success of others.
>>82512472I need to know more about this.
>>82512730>His argument"They only make comedy. Never liking anything or crediting the film when it does something right.">my counterargument"Bitch have you seen "Manos the Hands of Fate" *without* shadowrama? AH-Gon-Eee! Agony! How about "The girl with the gold boots" or "Black Scorpion"? These films are not suitable for human consumption. And far be it from me to forget Mr. B. Natural or the Killer Shrews! Let the comedy be a comedy. It doesn't need forced introspection just because you happened to like "Overdrawn at the Memory Bank".
>>82513048>you can't watch things Manos uncut nowThat's horseshit. I have watched Manos unriffed several times. In all honesty, I actually like that movie.
>>82513113You, anon, posess a masochistic streak. Kinky.
>>82512730I should have stopped reading at the first paragraph. This guy is a fucking idiot.
>Literally just got back from seeing Rifftrax at AMC>Found this threadOP, are you my stalker?
>>82513099God bless Raul Julia. Even as fucking terrible as Overdrawn was, he still acted the fuck out of his role.
>>82513184What'd you see? Did you rub Kevin Murphy's chin?
>>82513184How was it? I'm upset that I missed it.
>>82512490Joel had better host segments and a better relationship with the bots, Mike was generally a better riffer.
>won't be able to watch Patton Oswalt as TV's Son of TV's Frank without thinking about his dead wife and how he's probably super depressed
>>82512800Trace has a big fucking signature
>>82512730This is a pretentious bs. Especially the end where he suspects that Mst3k was responsible for his zine writer friend not working on that pursuit any longer. Maybe she outgrew the idea; that's like blaming any form of media that you find objectionable as the cause of a problem because you refuse to invest any real insight into it. A bloo bloo bloo no one noticed the way that Roger Corman liked long periods of walking driving and parking in his movies. He framed the shit out of those shots. Or how Ed Wood couldn't manage to keep continuity between shots. But the lighting when it switched from night to day and back? Magnifico.
>>82513904Yeah, MST3K wasn't a critique show, It was a comedy show, If you expect anything else, it's only your own fault when you don't get it.
>>82513113Is that BluRay finally out? I lost track of it since the posting on SA about it.
>>82514116I think there's still some light criticism hidden under the jokes.
>>82514183I don't know. If it's out, I'd like to get it.
>>82512627Joel really felt that Mike was better as a host, it's why he picked him to replace him.Both Joel and Mike are great, and work well in different ways
>>82514116I should have stopped when I read 'Alas'. This smacks of maximum tipping. >>82514193I think the point being made is that it's not an analysis. Yes they make light of re-used material, e.g. Final justice using the same shot of the sheriff being shot twice in succession. Or like I referenced certain directorial crutches like Corman not being able to make it through a movie without a shot of people going somewhere. Be it on foot or by car. If the latter, then you better believe you're going to see that car park. I can't string together what's going on otherwise. Thanks Roger. More pointedly the show is essentially a casual critique of the movie in that however you take it, the movie is being implied to be bad. Has that stopped me from getting 50 movie dvd packs of straight cheese? No. Do I carefully review them when I do? Although the option exists and it's not Mst3k's fault I choose to view them in that fashion. >>82514222http://www.manosinhd.com/
>>82514364If Zilla is a Godless Godzilla, does that mean he/she/it is the ultimate in fedoracore kaiju?
>>82512098>Who is doing the actual riffing?Jonah Ray as the host, Baron Vaughn as Servo, Hampton Yount as Crow.They've all been on @midnight, which means they're ahead of the original cast (except Joel) in TV experience.
>>82514594>which means they're ahead of the original cast (except Joel) in TV experienceWhat did he mean by this?
>>82514594I don't know who any of those people are. But thanks for telling me.
>>82514661Joel was a moderately famous comedian, but nobody else in the old MST3K cast had ever been on TV before.
>>82513243Tonight's was decent enough. The problem with Time Chasers on a whole is that it's not bad, Just forgettable.
>>82514783Oh you mean that the original cast didn't have as much experience as a 3 year old show. From least to most involvement. >Bill Corbett 8-10>Mike Nelson 5 1/2-10>Joel Robinson Ktma-5 1/2>Trace Beaulieu Ktma-7>Kevin Murphy 2-10197 Eps over 10 years. Ktma was a rocky start, but it was on public access. They have significantly LESS experience than some improv guys playing hashtag wars and yahoo answers.
>>82515062I mean at the time, you silly person.
>>82515021Yeah, that was a really bland movie.
>>82513204>>82513099Raul Julia was the only saving grace that sub b-movie hadJoel and the bots turned a snooze fest of a tv movie into one of my favorite comedy bits, its one of my go to episodes
>>82512781it airs on my local pbs every Saturday
>>82513478Wait, what? Really? That sucks for him. And it must really be hard on his little girl.
>>82513099>Overdrawn at the Memory BankOnly episode I didn't likeAnd it's not because of the episode itself, it's because that shitty movie is so boring I kept falling asleep and missing all the jokes
>>82511911Who's Felicia day?
>>82513005>Big mention is that Mike Nelson isn't a writer for the season. That is where the show will be screwed.Dan Harmon and Justin Roland are writing for it..so make of it will you may. Now if Ryan Ridley was joining in I could have more faith in it
>>82511617Pearl was the best Forrester.
>>82511911 Yeah, but she's just one of the Mads. So you'll barely see her
>>82516677You know how every hipster who has watched Avengers on IMAX and owns an ipad is now suddenly such a colossal nerd XDDD?She invented that
>>82516677That chick who played Vi on Buffy the Vampire SlayerShe's also one of the biggest reasons why "GAMER GURL XDDDD don't hit on me silly boys ;)" is a thing
>>82516721Ya know I liked Perl when she got around to having BoBo and Brian Guy to bounce off of.What was strange that they made Bobo a somewhat smart scientist to a complete moron. I thought Brian Guy was a very underrated Mad too! But then again I did not mind Corbett's Crow as well and thought he held his weight with vets Murphy and Nelson
>>82511911I must question this too. In the old stuff all the actors were the writers. I don't think Felicia Day is a writer. Also, she treats every role as gets like is something to retire on, as in she prices herself way to high.
So is this thread happening because people just came back from Time Chasers?It was great
>>82512218>Does anyone remember Cinematic Titanic?I have been to oneof the shows. I laughed so hard the person next to me thought I was having a fit.
>>82512472He probably took this words to heart, supposed he idolizes mst3k.
>>82512735Actually it pruggitory
>>82516909>>82512218>>82512831Does anyone remember the other 'mst3k-like' show that Mike and the two did?It was by Shout FactoryIt was actually really good, better than Rifftrax and Cinematic titanic, forget what it was called though, they only did 4 movies. Had openings, skirts, all the best stuff.can't remember that name though.
I was really disappointed by the MST3K panel at Dragon Con. I thought there would be live riffing , instead they answered questions for maybe 20 minutes and then left and two episodes played It was Joel, Trace, and Frank
>>82512472>Mega64 got Mike Nelson to be a cameo in one of their episodes>He did nothing but wear a Santa suit and you couldn't even tell it was himI'm still confused, but they all said it was really cool to meet him and he was super nice.
>>82512730>'Bay area writer'Stopped there.
>>82512218Did no one see>>82512800???
>>82517015Honestly sounds like all of Mega64's cameos, it's also like when they get people's autographs, they make them sign pictures of them.
>>82512645>19>too young to grow up with MST3K>mfw just old enough to grow up with Homestar RunnerIt's not all bad.
>>82516868>tfw haven't been to a Rifftrax Live since Over the Top.
>>82516659Really? The jokes keep firing fast, that held my attention. Any moment the fat guy was on screen was gold.
>>82516983Shit, I think I know what you're talking about, but I can't remember the name either. Didn't it have a title that directly invoked old 50's B movies? Something like "It Came From Beyond"?
>>82517353You gotta go. The shorts they open the shows with are always the best part. The Measurement Man that opened The Miami Connection was one of the funniest things I've ever seen.
>>82517522Yeah all the movies seemed to be from the 50's now that I think about it.One was about cavemen annnnd that's all I got.
>>82512090>Rifftrax.>decent.Are they actually voicing over shitty movies, or does Crow think he's a better director than John Carpenter?
>>82519315Half shitty movies but they also do popular ones like Star Wars and Lord of the rings.The best riffs are always on old shitty ones though, or things like The Room and Sharknado.
>>82519357Some of the blockbuster ones are fantastic though. I think the Twilight riffs might be my favorite.
>>82519315>>82519357Saw Santa Claus and the Ice Cream Bunny at the theater and I think I got a hernia from laughing so much. To me it was classic MST3K.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhXEVAuwXsIJune and the reunion cant come soon enough although I fear Frank and Trace might get salty towards the others.
>>82519524I remember watching the twilight one years ago, >line.But I can't get through some of them. For example guest riffers, or breaks in the lineup. I'm finicky that way.>>82519315>He hasn't seen Earth vs. Soup
I have every episode of MST3K on my hard drive, including most of the original series that was only available on Wisconsin public broadcast station, thanks to the MST3K archive project. 32 GB of video, took me over a month to torrent it, since I didn't have DSL a few years ago and there were only 2 people seeding it. Would I be fucked legally if I tried to get it hosted? It's such a shame that most of the episodes will never see an official release, and I want to share it with others.
