    Gosh, I was bored the other day so I decided to watch an episode of MST3k, gosh, this is my new favorite show. I seriously wish it was still on today. I know there are more fans of the show on here, so basically lets just talk about the show. The characters, the writing, the dreadfully horrible (but hillariously cheesey) movies. One of the best puppet shows besides ala The Muppet Show, Sesame, and Fraggle Rock.

    MST3k is best! When I first discovered it in the mid-90s I used to watch episodes with a couple of other puppeteers and we'd laugh so hard we would cry.

    "Mitchell"
    "Laserblast"
    "The Mole People"(I'm biased since this was my first)

    Its not on anymore, your best bet is to download an episode, or youtube. But "Prince of Space" is by far the best episode.

    They're available on DVD though. What a spectacular show. I think the episodes with Joel are the best, but Mike is really funny too. "Manos" is definitely one of if not the best, but they are all so great.

    I watched it everytime it came on. For some reason my mom would always say, "Why do you watch it? You don't even understand it." And I would say, "Whats not to understand. It's a guy and two puppets making fun of old movies." This was back when I was about I guess 12 or 13 maybe at the most. My favorite character was Crow. He made me laugh or Tom was too. I would watch it again if I could find a channel it was shown on. I do remember that it was Comdey Central that showed it back in the days. All the good stuff back in the 90's. I sure do miss it.

    I'm a "Misty" Fan Club member (so is Steven Speilberg!). The show will probably never air again since who ever would pick it up would have to pay the royalties on the films the guys riff on, and no one is going to shell out that kind of money for re-runs of a cable "puppet show". I got to speak with Joel Hodgeson at length when he actually called me at home (totally cool!) and he had some VERY interesting thoughts on the Henson Co. omong other things. He did an appearance for the L.A. Puppetry Guild a short while back with Crow and Servo, but I didn't know about it until too late, so I didn't get to see them {8>-(

    I saw him at that event. It was pretty cool. We spent a lot of the meeting watching old Jerry Mahoney sketches.

    What? No love here yet for the reboot?

    If you didn't pitch in to the Kickstarter, and you didn't see the Rifftrax/MST3K reunion show, where've you been, rock climbing?!

    The new MST website launches in April. Kickstarter backers get first access, but it'll be open to all fans! The new season sounds good. I'm especially intrigued by Patton Oswalt as TV's Frank's son!

    NEW EPISODES SIGN!

    I know I can't wait for the new shows but I won't be able to see them unless I pay for a Netflix account first. I've had one but I just hate to have to keeping spending 8 dollars every month. I wished they had a thing where you could pay for a good I don't know 3 or 5 months then not have to worry till those months are up. I was one of the Kickstarters so pretty cool stuff. Now I didn't go all out but I did put the money to good use. Loved the trailer looks really neat and still reminds me of the older shows too.

    Well, you can get an account and then pause it whatever month you're not using it so they don't charge you. Then, whenever you want to, you can turn the account back on.
    Patton Oswalt is in this?!? Hmmm, color me intrigued.

    I'm so excited for the new season! And not just because I'm lead puppeteer for Crow! I'm a longtime fan and this new season fits right in with all the rest. Is it April 14th yet?
