    I am of the opinion that the host segments have always been bad and will continue to always be bad

    Maybe "bad" isn't the right word

    "Corny" DEFINITELY is

    Yeah it's not a matter of "good before, bad now". It's just a very different energy from the old ones.
    This is actually what I want to hear

    I don't mind the cheesy jokes at all, but the energy and flow of the old ones never worked for me

    So, thoughts on the first episode: the pacing and energy of the host segments is weird, but the riffs have that same ol' MST3K feel.

    I found it to be the exact opposite
    The host segments were classic goofiness and the riffing felt really rushed
    Also I can barely tell the three of them apart in the theater
    But the jokes were good!

    I'm mostly just a fan of the MST3K shorts, like those PSA videos from the fifties ("Emotions are for ethnic people!")

    I'll definitely be checking this out though.

    Not familiar with his work outside of this, but I dig Jonah. Seems to have gotten into the swing of things fast and is really comfortable.

    And man, that movie was a pile of garbage.

    one of my favorite things about having new mst3k episodes is reviving an old favorite game: "has aj seen the movie being riffed before?"

    because let me tell you, i'd seen a good deal of the flicks in the original run before they were riff fodder.

    also the host segments rule. and the lack of them were why i couldn't get into stuff like rifftrax.

    4/14 can't come soon enough

    Just watched the beginning till the movie started. Fears receding. This seems like MST3k! The guy doing Crow is real good. Servo will take a little getting used to. The mads seem good too.

    Will watch it proper when it goes up on Netflix as I want to add to its viewing count so Netflix will decide to make more.

    They've uploaded the whole season early for backers and I haven't watched much but I can assure you that it still looks appropriately cheap and chintzy

    okay but is it good

    Impressions and thoughts on the first one and a half episodes
    Comparable to the Sci-Fi channel era, so far. Jokes fly way faster than they used to, to the point where the sheer volume is a little absurd. There's been at least one genuine gut-buster in the two episodes I watched, though I still wish they felt more like improv--the show kind of lost something when they stopped reacting to/laughing at each other's jokes, but that's been the case since season eight

    (There's also times where I think the movie speaks for itself and just them laughing at it would be more effective than cracking a joke, but that might be a personal thing. The live shows work like this, anyway)

    Two genuine issues: the puppets are super unresponsive, since their mouths are radio controlled now instead of manual, which is weirdly distracting? And the host segments are REAL lame to start. Like POWERFULLY so. They seem to get better, likely as a result of people getting more comfortable with their roles

    All the music rules though (and there's a lot of it!) and all the actual props and models look absolutely perfect, just the right amount of corny and handcrafted, haven't seen an ounce of CGI outside of some silhouette visual gags and trickery

    are you saying the scifi channel era was bad or good, in making that comparison

    i was deliberately avoiding a value judgment there, because I think the similarity is in structure and execution more than quality

    But the Sci-FI run is my least favorite outside of season one, if that tells you anything

    I wouldn't call it straight up bad, just definitely not my favorite

    I'm sure he'll do some character work. It's pretty common for the crew and writers to show up in sketches. Hell, that's how Mike ended up a host in the end.

    So TV's Son of TV's Frank is named Max.

    End of each episode spoiler?

    Dr F tells him to "Push the button, Max" at the end of the episodes like in old MST3K with Frank.

    This can't not also be a reference to the old Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis movie The Great Race in which Professor Fate (Lemmon) tells his henchman Max (Peter Falks) to "Push the button, Max!" numerous times during the film.

    Thanks to Netflix, you’ll have access to all 14 episodes right away. The cast does not recommend binging.

    “It’s a lot to take in at once,” Ray said. “People would end up feeling the same fatigue that our characters would. The Forrester legacy might actually come true if everyone tries to watch these all in a row.”

    Day does encourage people to watch them out of order. “To have all of them go up at the same time, people can look at all the new movies and be like, ‘Oh, which ones do I want to watch first?’” Day said. “I have a preference for the old historical ones just as a viewer.”

    Hodgson just hopes people take their time. “It took us so long to make them, I wouldn’t insist that people watch them right away,” Hodgson said. “Personally, I just want them to enjoy them at their own pace. It’s a lot.”

    My own pace is that I'm only up to halfway through episode 6. At least it's less than 9 hours until the "don't discuss the details yet" embargo is up.

    That said, I don't know why Netflix doesn't support a one-episode-per-week release model.

    They do. There's shows that do this in other countries anyway (Riverdale is a Netflix exclusive in every country but the US, where it airs on the CW, for example). They prefer the model they have it.

    Ah, I guess they just didn't want to do it for this here, at least if this is accurate.
    Is Netflix releasing all episodes at once?

    Yep. I think I read that Joel said it was one point Netflix wouldn't budge on.

    So, as it's past the 12:01 AM deadline, your experiments for this season are
    Reptilicus (1961)
    Cry Wilderness (1987)
    The Time Travelers (1964)
    Avalanche (1978)
    The Beast of Hollow Mountain (1956)
    Starcrash (1978)
    The Land that Time Forgot (1974)
    The Loves of Hercules (1960)
    Yongary (1967)
    Wizards of the Lost Kingdom (1985)
    Wizards of the Lost Kingdom 2 (1989)
    Carnival Magic (1981)
    The Christmas That Almost Wasn't (1966)
    At the Earth's Core (1976)

    I was expecting at least one film from the 90s and wasn't expecting them to go back to 1956 once. But these seem fine.
