MSTIEs unite
« on: June 24, 2005, 05:09:52 pm »
I'm just curious to know if there are any MSTIEs (Otherwise known as obessed fans of Mystery Science Theatre 3000) on this board. Everytime I post an MST3K reference on the and-or game nobody seems to know what I'm talking about. Please tell me some of you guys and gals have at least SEEN the show.

I used to like MST3K but I didn't have cable and after a while, when I saw it there was a strange Planet of the Apes plot going on so I lost interest.  I also liked Joel better than Mike.  -leeman

When the show came to Sci Fi, the excecs at the network insisted that the host segments follow some sort of linear plot. The producers and makers of the show hated the idea of makeing some sort of 'plot' but they were forced to do it or they wouldn't be picked up by Sci Fi. They didn't want to do all that "planet of the apes turns into rome turns into space childen" but they kinda had to.

I think I have seen every single MST3k ever! Man I used to love that show, I am still sad to this day that they canceled it.

And, believe it or not, but I actually watched the "Cave Dwellers" episode yesterday. That is a great one.

Which episodes do you like Pinstar? Personally I like the ones in which the movie is semi-decent, the really bad movies are just so bad that you can barely watch the show. I really liked the episodes Hobgoblins, Merlin's Shop of Mystical Wonders, Puma Man, Agent for H.A.R.M., Teenagers From Outer Space, The Sidehackers ... ah, there are just so many good ones! Too many to list!

I used to watch it with my dad when i was younger and it was on the air. I liked it then and i'd probably like it more now that i'm able to understand the jokes more. I comment out loud on anything i watch now. (Execpt when i'm at movie theaters the i wisper. lol.) Not sure if i do that because of MST3000...
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

MST3K is short for the entire show name, Mystery Science Theater 3000 which was a show on the Sci-Fi channel in the earlier 90s. Basically the show consisted of two robots and a human sitting around, watching a horribly bad movie, and making funny comments throughout the movie. There were also little skits between the movies and the show was wonderfully low budget. That's basically it, you should definitely check it out if you like that sort of stuff. They sell DVDs of some of the better episodes and I'm sure you can find episodes on the net if you look.

Here is the official web site for the show:

And here is a list of the movies released on DVD to date:

Well it origonally started out on Comedy Central, then moved to Sci Fi.  I wish they would have done some more recent good movies, though I realize this would have been impostilbe due to cost.  Even though I love the movies it would hilarious to see them making fun of say Star Wars or Lord of the Rings.

Actually it originally started out as a cheesy late-night televsion show in a UHF channel in Minneapolis (23 or 29 I forget). Comedy Central damaged it and SciFi killed it. Sad too, the 'original shows' were a lot better, but it could also be that they were playing to a more local crowd rather than a national audience.

Mystery Science Theater 3000... how I miss you.
One of my favorite childhood passtimes was watching this show. Once you see it you can't forget about it, because, unlike a lot of programs on television, Mystery Science Theater 3000 was unique.

It doesn't sound like you liked it much at all Legodragon.

I enjoyed the UHF show. When it lost it local 'feel' however it kind of fell apart for me. I worked in local television for several years and it was realy cool to see a small-time local show turn national, kind of a geeker-dream-come-true, but the feel of the show was lost, becoming exactly what it made fun of in the first place. I guess you are what you eat over time.

Pod people, Overdrawn at the Memory Bank, Phantom Planet, Invasion of the Neptune Men, The Screaming Skull and finally Diabolik. Diabolik was their last episode, and I think they went out on a very high note.

There were also bad movies hosted by Jo Bob Briggs on TNT.  He would make comments before and after the commercials.  It wasn't nearly as good, but it did give me my MST3k fix.
I have been told
not by one but two of my lovers
that I've got a heart of gold
but I'm unable to share it with others
They call me a poet who'll never have a poem
a tiger with no taste for bone
I'm the wonderful wonderful wizard who's waltzing alone

I got to watch some of it the other night while searching through Winamp TV. So now I understand what this is all about. I actually found the comments kind of annoying.

I watched one a while ago that had people with foreheads that were really long and went inward like ( that.

It showed human prisoners, showing rescuers some picture/anatomy type pics of the foreheads. One of the women prisoners said something like "Have you seen their foreheads?" And one of the guys blurted out, "Noooo!" In a really funny voice... I cracked up so hard. This was one of my favorite shows.

I want the DVDs so bad, but it seems too expensive just for 2 movies...But it would be worth it.
Anyone know of any interesting DVD extras?

Wow, this makes me realize how long it's been since I was an active user here.

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians - "Santa are you sober?"
Merlins Mystical Shop of Wonder - "I did a good job painting this room."
The Touch of Satan - "I want you to meet my pet fish."
Time Chasers - "No, this is not the hero. He's running to get the hero."
Boggy Creek II: The Legend Continues - "Can I borrow a cup of shirt?"
Overdrawn at the Memory Bank - "I thought he was Puetro Rican, I didn't realize he was Cuban!"
Hamlet - can't think of a good one form this movie
Girl in Gold Boots - "Oh the nights we lingered over brandy at Eat"
Space Mutiny - "The heros just fried a cripple."
