    The whole vivisection turn makes even LESS sense with the fact that the chimp's talking was added waaaay later in the development. So... instead of wanting to cut up and study the amazing talking chimp, he wants to slice and dice a regular circus monkey...

    I kept trying to get into the old series but I usually ended up treating them like podcasts and tried to play something with them in the background.

    I think the new series, even that first episode, finally captured my attention. This is pretty good. I wonder if I appreciate it more because for a few years I've had a dearth of movie reviewers (besides Mr. Plinkett) who riffed movies that I actually wanted to watch. Those guys like Spoony or Nostalgia Critic that grew up on MST3K and were inspired on it. Some of them are still doing stuff but either I'm not interested in their subject matter or they just don't feel the same. I still follow guys like Spoony and Linkara but still.

    Point is, it feels like I'm coming to a full circle appreciation on MST3K after watching guys who were inspired by it by watching the actual thing.

    I don't think there's any way it doesn't get renewed. It has a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and is getting good word of mouth from viewers. But only Netflix actually knows how many people are watching, I guess.

    They could have another season of MST3K, or six more shitty Adam Sandler movies.

    Pretty sure it's an obvious choice for Netflix.

    Six shitty Adam Sandler movies, then a MST3K audio option for each of them

    You joke about it, but man, I would fucking love if MST3K got to do episodes of Netflix originals. Then if Netflix makes good stuff, it's good. But when it's bad, MST3K still makes it good. The symmetry would be beautiful.

    Honestly I think MST3K is best when it's spoofing something watchable

    For something actually good I don't really have any reference points but if the Stranger Things clip is any indication I wan them to do literally every Netflix original

    The Loves of Hercules:
    "Well, I guess my wife died violently, like, three minutes ago. Time to profess my love to this new chick!" I mean, she is Jayne Mansfield, so I kinda get it, but seriously ...

    And the award for Least Inspiring Monster Fight Scene Not Filmed at an Elementary School goes to ...

    And, seriously, how do you kill the Hydra (which, you know, didn't look any different when "dead" vs. the first shots of it) by cutting off its head?! That's supposed to just let it grow two more, not kill it. We're talking, like, Hydra 101 shit here.

    Also, did not know that the male lead for this was Mariska Hargitay's dad, so that's cool.

    And Jayne Mansfield is her mom. Probably not conceived on set, but who knows? Mickey was damn sexy in this film, picking up obviously light objects and lightly tossing them around the room.

    Just made it home from the show.

    It was everything I'd hoped it would be.

    Really great crowd - some good cosplay, everyone friendly inline - the whole theater singing along to the theme song was wonderful.

    The movie itself was *awful* in the best way possible, and the riffs ranged from serviceable to absolutely hilarious - with the weighting heavily towards the latter. I don't think any of them fell flat.

    A++, would look out for snakes again

    The EEGAH! live show was so awesome. The line "Watch out for snakes!" has a theme song now, you guys.

    I hope that it gets redone as an actual episode, like when the RiffTrax crew do studio versions of their live shows. Especially for the Super Secret Show, since my town wasn't cool enough to get it.

    I can also confirm that the live showing of Eegah is fantastic. I had never actually seen the original airing of the episode so I can't say how it compares. (Un?)fortunately it is on Netflix. I'd recommend getting tickets if you're on the fence.

    ...I am also trying to figure out if Jonah injuring himself is scripted or not. Also had some Cry Wilderness eeking in. Nobody in any costumes, but lots of people in backer shirts.

    Today's the MST3K Comic Con panel. I feel like it's pretty much make or break time if we're getting a new season - they'll either announce it during the panel, or they'll say there's no decision yet...and that would not be a good sign...

    I feel like with Netflix in particular, a new season has to be a win-win for them. The show is so much cheaper to produce than just about anything else they do and it's really popular. Even if it doesn't do the numbers of other series (I have no idea how well it did), I'd have to think the return would be worth it.

    There's also the fact that Netflix has been losing a lot of business with the major stations lately. Everyone wants to make their own streaming service, so they're dropping their deals with Netflix. That means Netflix needs as much original content as they can get to remain relevant.

    There's been no news whatsoever. I think Joel is still saying it's being worked out right now, but mostly been keeping on message about the live shows.

    In other MST3K-adjacent news, a complete collection of the 12 officially released episodes of Cinematic Titanic was released by Shout Factory yesterday. I completely missed out on CT when it was originally going, so I'm excited to check them out. The set is $28 at Amazon right now.

    There's at least one movie not on the list: The Astral Factor (AKA Invisible Strangler). I saw that one live when they came to town. I'm not sure if they didn't get the rights to it or what.

    I also want to say that Rattlers and War of the Insects were the only ones that weren't on Hulu or Amazon Prime previously, since I recall seeing the rest of those streaming.

    I remember the Frankenstein one being especially bad, both in the base film and the riffs, but I only watched it once many moons ago.

    Yeah, there were live episodes/movies they did that were never recorded, unfortunately.

    I think there's one case where a audience recorded the audio for a live-only show and then edited it over a copy of the movie and uploaded to YouTube.

    I wish more of the classics were available online. Between the legal ones on youtube/hulu/netflix, I've already seen them all.

    I know there's lots of fan uploaded ones on youtube, but the quality/watchability of the uploads vary heavily.

    Sadly the nature of the show really doesn't lend itself to a full release of seasons.

    Also, the ever constant problems of shifting movie rights that need to be worked out.

    Shout Factory just announced that the upcoming volume (which only has 3 episodes) would most likely be its last of classic episodes for the known future, since the rest of the episodes' rights are unobtainable.

    My theory is after it got crowdfunded buying up the movie licenses was doable but now that it's a "Netflix Thing" it might not be worth it.

    Buying up the rights to just about anything could potentially (inevitably) enter fuck everything territory

    Did you fill out the survey? The credits are only listing a handful of backers per episode so you might be in an episode you haven't watched yet. I believe it's all alphabetical.
