The Official Mystery Science Theater 3000 Topic

Post by HayesAJones »

What do you think about this cult series? Who's your favorite 'bot? Mike or Joel? Which set of Mads do you prefer? What are your favorite episodes.

I love this show like no other. I had always loved watching and making fun of bad movies. So when I found a show that did the same, I just fell in love. Joel gets huge props for starting the series, but I prefer Mike as a host. He just clicks with me. Crow is my favorite co-host (mainly Bill's), because of his unpredictability. But I do love it when Servo sings. And concerning the Mads? I definitively have to say Dr. Forester and TV's Frank. I like Pearl and her gang, but the Dr. F and Frank duo is just classic. My absolute favorite episode is definitively Werewolf. It's the first episode I ever saw. Some others good ones that come to mind are Final Justice, Final Sacrifice, Zombie Nightmare, It Lives by Night, and Night of the Moon Beast. There might be some that I'm missing, though.

So what are your thoughts and opinions?

MST3K is currently my second favorite television show (next to The Twilight Zone). I really can't get enough of it. I could put in literally any episode, and within five minutes, I'm laughing my ass off. No other show has made me laugh so consistently and often.

I prefer Mike over Joel. Mostly because of the way that Joel acted. It wasn't terrible, but he always looked and sounded so depressed. Like he was one bad moment away from cutting his wrists. Yeah, he was under a lot of pressure for creating the show, but that doesn't change anything for me.

Anyway, I also like Crow over Tom. They're both awesome and hilarious, but Crow was always prone to sudden huge outbursts, especially when Bill took over. And those were always funny to watch. Its also that reason why I prefer Bill's Crow over Trace's Crow (but again, they're both awesome).

My favorite episode, by far, is The Final Sacrifice. One of the funniest things I've ever seen in my life. Other favorites would be Prince Of Space, Werewolf, Blood Waters Of Dr. Z, Starfighters and Pod People. There are probably a lot more that I'm forgetting about.

I love the show. I've been playing catch-up on the Rhino DVDs, which I own a few (including the Godzilla episode set) :D , The movie, and all the Shout DVD's. It was one of the shows Dad and I watched, which makes it even more special. Manhunt in Space was last episode we watched together and we watched the Movie a week before he died.

Does anyone know that the Giant Gila Monster single DVD is still available? I don't want to buy Vol 10.2 because I have the one with Godzilla vs. Megalon.
I was mentioned in the SciFi Japan article about the appearence of extras on the Godzilla vs. Megalon DVD.

I only watched Godzilla vs. Megalon, Gamera vs. Guiron, part of Gamera vs. Zigra and the ending to one I can't remember. I like the show anyway. I think Crow is my favorite because he had some of the best lines in the ones I watched.
Do you really think I'm that stupid?!

MST3K is my all-time favorite show.Ever since i first saw it i couldnt get enough of it.I met the cast of Cinematic Titanic in Seattle in June and got autographs.My favorite 'bot has to be Crow(the Beaulieu Crow) because his jokes and antics are so memorable.Dont get me wrong i love Servo too.When it comes to Mike or Joel,its Joel without a doubt.He is a more likeable character and relateable and i love his father-like relationship with the 'bots.And for the Mads its Dr. Forrester and TV's Frank.They just make a great duo,nuff said.My all-time favorite episode has to be my first one,The Killer Shrews.

Watched the episode with Manos: The Hands of Fate. Epic win.

Don't try to be something else. Don't try to be less. Great things are going to happen in your life. Great things. And with that will come great responsibility.

Only the episodes that were released on DVD. Which, believe it or not, isn't even a fraction of all the MST3K's out there.

I believe the Gila Monster single was just a limited time only for those who already purchased the original Volume 10 while it was briefly on shelves. It was sold exclusively through Rhino's site.

I missed out on it too. However I won a copy on EBay for 13 bucks. A lot better than the $50 price on rebuying a bunch of episodes with it.
Thanks for the heads up. I'll keep my eye out on EBay.

I rememeber the days when I woke up at 5 to 6 in the Morning on Saturdays just so I and my sister can watch MST3K. One of the best shows every created, and since it's from Minnesota, makes us all the much better. (To be honest I'm from Idaho, or atleast born there, but moved a lot).

My favorite episode was the Brain that never dies, though I heard a rumor where they did an episode on one of the Dragon ball movies.

Was that true?
For great justice, and fruit pies!

Man, I can tell you're going to be a whole lot of fun.

I've got one of these too. Only mine is signed by Kevin Murphy. ;)
So where do you live?
