I should be embarrassed to admit how many episodes I own. It's more than 100.

But I'm not! MST rules. I wept when it got cancelled.

Did you know that Mike and the 2 guys who voiced Crow and Tom Servo had a gig on Showtime--introducing lousy modern SF and horror movies?

Open up your heart and let the Patrick Swayze Christmas in.
We'll gather at the Roadhouse with our next of kin.
And Santa can be our regular Saturday night thing.
We'll decorate our barstools and gather round and sing.

Oh, let's have a Patrick Swayze Christmas this year!
Or we'll tear your throat out and kick you in the ear!

It's my way or the highway, this Christmas at my ba-ha-haar.
I'll have to smash your kneecaps if you bastards touch my car!
I got the word that Santa has been stealing from the till.
I think that that right jolly old elf better make out his will, ohh,

Oh, let's have a Patrick Swayze Christmas, one and all.
And this can be the haziest...
This can be the laziest...
This can be the Swayziest
Christmas of them aaallllllllll!

We are, rather, aficionadios of the subtlest of humor. ;)

Everybody join in...

There was a time, so bright and gay
It seems like only yesterday
When I held your brain in my arms
Your adrenalin was like wine
Sweet perfume was your endocrine
When I held your brain in my arms

But now your brain is gone and it's left an empty hole
I gaze into your sockets but you're just a hollow skull
I used to love a lotta
Your medulla oblongota
And your basal ganglia
I remember we would stroll along your fissure of Rolando
When I held your brain in my arms

and look pretty good in fake hair!
(They're kind of afraid to go out at night.
They don't get historical facts just right.
They hike up their codpieces really tight.)
They look pretty good in fake hair.

A sweet Delta lady am I, am I,
More fair than the stars in the sky.
I'm bold and bawdy and oh my lawdy,
I'm proud to declare I like pie.
A sweet Delta lady, I do what I please.
I'm strong and I'm savvy, and I've got these.
I love to sing out, don't forget the cheese.
I'm proud to declare I like pie.

I'm the biggest MST3K dork here, sorry everyone.

My sister and I watched and taped MST3K religiously when it was on Comedy Central. We still watched and taped when it went to SciFi, but not as often.

I LOVE MST3K. Still love it after all these years. I have a giant box of tapes with many many episodes.

My sister and I went to the MST3K ConventioCon ExpoFestarama in 1993. We met the entire cast, got autographs, pictures, met other fans, went to the costume ball, and attended the movie screening (and Mike and the bots' live ribbing) of This Island Earth.

One of the things I bought at the convention is a MST3K coffee mug which I still use every week.

We had tickets for the second MST3K convention, but I had to cancel because I was getting married.

So yeah, I'm still a dork.

Believe it or nuts, I have nearly every single episode on tape. Every. Single. One (save for the first year, when they were strictly on local cable). Simply the funniest, wittiest, sharpest show ever on the tube, bar none.

Oh, and lest we forget: "She's presenting like a mandrill!" Space Mutiny

Have I come home?!

We started watching when it came to SciFi Channel--we hadn't gotten Comedy Network when it was on, there. We have quite a little bit on DVD, and we're discovering some of the ones pre-SF channel. Yay!

"The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies" is and was my absolute favorite. I laughed so hard during this movie I swear I almost passed out! "Space Mutiny" isn't far behind. And we love all the shorts.

I've tried getting my best friend to watch them with me. She just doesn't see the humor. Thankfully, my husband and I are compatible in that respect. And we have a new Christmas tradition--"Santa Claus versus the Martians!"

I had a ton of episodes taped, years ago, but made the mistake of loaning them to a friend who then moved without returning them. Darn it! Of course, I no longer have a VCR, just a DVD player, but still!

I love this show so much! I think my favorite is The Delta Knights, but it might be the gloomy German version of Hamlet.

If you run across a novel called Death Rat!, pick it up, incidentally. It's by Michael J. Nelson--yes, Mike--and it's really, really funny. And Kevin Murphy wrote a great book called A Year at the Movies.

I love Quest of the Delta Knights. I can seriously watch that one over and over, even moreso than Space Mutiny. Another favorite is Time Chasers - it holds up very well to repeat viewings.

"Come to Martin's - What up?"

I also have Death Rat! - very funny, but I think it would lose something to those who are unfamiliar with Minnesota and the folks in it. I also like Mike's essay books - 'Mind Over Matters' and 'Movie Megacheese.'

It's been awhile since I've been to the site, but DAP had a bunch of episodes for download. And they said that it was legal to do it as long as the movie wasn't released for sale--and if/when something was released, the would removed that episode from their website.

Yeah--"Overdrawn" was good. And "Clonus." "I was a Teenage Werewolf."

My husband's fave is "Giant Spider Invasion." As a kid, he saw this at the drive-in and it freaked him out (he's still a bit afraid of spiders!). But the MST3K version is hilarious! Oooh. Maybe tonight we'll watch it, again.

Deathstalker and the Warriors from Hell, I think. One of my all-time favorites, along with The Day the Earth Froze. (Sampo!)


Robot Monster! Can anything beat a "space alien" in a gorilla suit with a diving bell on its head? And the Million Bubble Machine: Aagh! Lawrence Welk is coming! Hide the kids!

Can't possibly pick a favorite! I can do top 5, I think (no particular order):

Space Mutiny
Deathstalker and the Warriors from Hell
The Creeping Terror
Robot vs. the Aztec Mummy (possibly the worst movie ever cobbled together from TWO bad movies! I've seen the standalone The Aztec Mummy)
The Final Sacrifice
Sampson vs. the Vampire Women--the wrestling getup! and the vampires who get a running start and STILL can't fly!

(Yeah, I know...that's 6.)

But then there are the ones where I liked the actual movies before I saw the MST versions:

Robot Monster (I have a 3-D print of that. Hysterical!)
Bride of the Monster, Beast of Yucca Flats (okay, anything starring Tor Johnson)
anything Godzilla


Worst MST top 3:

Girl in Gold Boots
Racket Girls
And the one from the last or 2nd-last season starring Joe Don Baker as a cop. I fell asleep during that one.


But when I go home and stare at my collection I'll think of others...

Like Prince of Space (Bawk!) and Devil Doll and...

Has anyone ever seen "Season 0," their "first" season before the show went on Comedy Central? I have a tape of three of the shows. Crow has a different voice, and there is no TV's Frank, rather there's Doctor Earhardt, a guy with glasses and fuzzy black hair. Doctor Earhardt is very hammy. I can't remember why he was on the show or why Frank Conniff replaced him.

Also, the jokes were much less frequent. A minute of the movie might go by until one of them would offer a comment.

The theme was pretty much identical, except for some of the lyrics.

I have a set of grainy DVDs from Season 0. Not the greatest riffing, but it's kind of like watching kindergarteners -- you know the potential's there, but they need practice. :D

I'm more of a Mike person (as opposed to a Joel person) anyway, his scathing social satire is the coolest. And his songs. Joel's a genius, but never seemed as comfortable in front of the camera -- it has an affect on me. Some of the episodes are supergreat, though.

I have a HUGE box of tapes in my basement full of MST3K episodes. If I had the time, I'd sit down and watch them all.

But I can't. I have a full time job and I write. I have no time right now to watch even the Doctor Who episodes I taped last year. And DW is back again. When am I ever going to watch?

I remember all the episodes you listed (Diabolik is one of the later season episodes on Comedy Central, IIRC).

And I like Joel and Mike equally (and I met Mike at the convention! I was so tongue tied, this is what I said: "Mike . . . you are so cool!" He squinted at my namebadge and said, "Well, Allen, I think you're cool, too." He said I was cool! Isn't that awesome?). I mean, I watched years of Joel episodes and was just so used to him. Mike made periodic appearances as background characters until he became the janitor for Deep Space 9 and was sent to the SOL to replace Joel. I was sad to see Joel leave, but Mike was a lot of fun, too.

But when Frank left and Pearl became a regular, well, that's when things kind of fell apart for me and the show. I stopped watching regularly. I just couldn't get into the whole "brain guys" and apes and Pearl and all that stuff. I still have no idea what any of that was about. Sigh.

But I'll always love the show. Always.

Here (http://www.dapcentral.org/) is a link to the Digital Archive Project, where you can (according to them) download legal episodes of MST3K. If Rhino releases them on DVD for sale, they take them off their site.

DAP has been a lifesaver for me, as far as my MST3K fix goes. And I've found a great deal of other episodes I'd have never seen, otherwise!

Did I mention that I also became a member of Netflix to get the ones I can't get on DAP?

Oh, and hubby and I bought the track to "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" on Rifftrax and watched it last night, since it was already a favorite childhood movie. Not bad, but not as great as I wanted. I think we'll have to go for the "Glitter" or "Roadhouse" for something really bad/good.

My kiddo & I watched the Matrix Riffed & it was hilarious. Not as funny as Star Trek V, but still a riot. I like the ones with Nelson, Murphy and Corbett the best -- it's like a whole new MST3K episode -- but Nelson & Murphy are great on their own too. I doubt you'll be sorry if you like MST3K, or The Matrix -- my daughter & I both loved The Matrix (the first one!!).

OH! I was wondering if anyone knew where the "This potato has big ears." (picture of a rabbit) reference comes from? I have seen this on t-shirts for MST but I don't know the episode.

I realize this question is from 2007, but as it was never answered...

"This potato has big ears" is from the Joel ep. "Pod People," my favorite. Crow is speaking as the alien Trumpy, and he's looking at the little kid's pets, referring to all of them as some kind of potato. It's totally random, and totally hilarious.

Other favs include:

- The Final Sacrifice

I'd quote random funny lines at this point, if I wasn't too brain dead right now to think of any...

Final thought for this post: I do like Mike - he's more caustic and a little more hip. But Joel? I just adore his deadpan, laid-back delivery... also, I always thought he was really cute. <3

I used to have on VHS (and have long-since lost) an MST black-and-white movie where the monster was a--I shit you not--giant shag carpet.

Like, you could see the sneakers of people under it.

Really, it was supposed to be a space monster, but there was no getting around it. Giant. Shag. Carpet.

What movie was that?

The Creeping Terror.

One of my top 5 MSTs.


I just watched the RiffTrax House on Haunted Hill. Excellent, as always.

YESSSSSSS!

Hobgoblins is one of my favorites (paraphrasing)-

"Sir we have an accident down at the studio-"
"What is it?"

"We..we made "Hobgoblins".

Rifftrax for Twilight is also hella funny!

Oh man I am glad someone else remembers that one! It was so sad it almost wasn't hilarious.

The MST commentary on that one was gold. ;)

I realize this question is from 2007, but as it was never answered...

"This potato has big ears" is from the Joel ep. "Pod People," my favorite. Crow is speaking as the alien Trumpy, and he's looking at the little kid's pets, referring to all of them as some kind of potato. It's totally random, and totally hilarious.

Once I dated a hot guy who introduced me to MST3K. One of the things that contributed to his charm. ;)

I was hooked on the show right away. He had a collection of tapes, so we would watch episodes and make out during the host segments. Then I would reluctantly but firmly disengage the moment we had movie sign.

Still not sure if I had my priorities straight.

Wow, this thread takes me back. I spent a good part of my last two years of undergrad taping the episodes on VHS. I have actually never seen a Mike episode; I moved to where we didn't get Comedy Central in 1993. I still have many, many fond memories of that show.

Every time I see a movie with people running, I always sing in my head, "Doo-do-do-do-bum-bum-bum".
