Re: Push the "Donate" button, Frank.


Slight correction, Deino: 14 episodes including a holiday special.

The telethon was a total production disaster. For me, it was unwatchable. Then something happened. They acknowledged its awfulness and became hysterical. To fill time, Patton Oswalt started reading off random tweets and responding to them and that was comedy gold. For example, one person's tweet asked when the Boba Fett cartoon and Bea Arthur's musical number was coming up.

When they passed the 5.9M mark, Joel didn't even know about it. One of the guests mentioned it in passing and Joel was shocked to learn that the goal was met. He had the line of the night: "That's the advantage of having a crappy telethon -- you don't know what's going on!"

Joel was truly genuine throughout the entire campaign and the live telethon. I'm glad to have supported the MST3K revival... and look forward to all of my rewards... :)

Back into my crawlspace I go....

Re: Push the "Donate" button, Frank.


Thought I'd reappear to mention that last week, I got to visit the set of the revived MST3K. I can't say much due to a non-disclosure agreement that I signed, but I will say that above all else, Jonah Ray is going to make a great new host! I got to talk with him, and he was funny and seemed enthusiastic about being a part of the new season. We got to see all sorts of neat props and other secrets and then got into costume to be filmed as part of an episode. Many photos were taken, but by the producer who would release them when they could, seeing as how many photos would likely contain spoilers that they would want to hold back until the season is launched on Netflix in a few months.

So, if you're still around LZ, when can you share? Just finished with the last episode myself and made sure to watch through the credits. ;)

So, in summary of this new season; I loved it.

It'll be easier to pick at the couple small issues I had instead of list off all the stuff I liked so here hey are. Firstly, it took a bit to get used to a new host at the same time as two new robot voices. I eventually did, but even through 14 episodes their pitch and delivery still seems a little too similar to each other. Also, the jokes in the previous episodes seemed a lot more esoteric and wide-ranging. Seem to be a lot of geek-centric pop-culture references now, but still hilarious.

Oh, and I love that more people have now been traumatized by the unforgettable end of Yongary. :lol

My only issue....I think "The Land that Time Forgot" is actually a pretty good movie. :goji

Re: Push the "Donate" button, Frank.


I'm a little over halfway now... And I'm in love with this new direction. It's not as good as Joel's run, but I think it's better than Mike's Comedy Central run. And far better than the Sci-Fi run. (And I liked the Mike run.)

Like what many have said, it takes a little getting used to with the voices, but I eventually did. The jokes, ore often than not, landed with me.

Oh. My. God. I !@#$ LOVED Starcrash!! I remember that piece o'!@#$ from my childhood. (My local network played it a ton of times!) And it was awesome to see again. I understand Shout Factory has a lot to do with the movie selections this time around, and I'm coolio with that.

Thing that makes me the happiest is that now that it's on Netflix... The likelihood of multiple seasons are VERY high. :)

Push the button, Max.

Re: Push the "Donate" button, Frank.


I never saw a ton of MST3K. I'd catch it here and there on Comedy Central, but I never deliberately followed it. My loss right? I loved this new season though.

Felicia Day is adorable as always. It bothers me somewhat that the only thing they could think to do with her character is have her try to get married while another guy pines after her. With her being one of the few prominent women in geek culture, I wish they'd done something else, but the way it's done is off kilter enough to keep it from being too bad.

I agree with the point about the voices being too similar. It was kind of hard to keep track of who was talking without looking to see which robot was animating.

Some of the movies I thought didn't actually seem that bad. Goji mentioned The Land Time Forgot, for instance. I make fun of movies I like though, so this still works for me as long as the jokes are landing. My girlfriend had me watch the entire Harry Potter series, and I enjoyed it, but I still riffed the !@#$ out of them. :lol

Can not get that damn theme song out of my head. This particular version of it is really well produced and catchy as !@#$.
