Are they allowing you to tell everyone to bite you?
New series begins on Friday? Fire up the butt thrusters, we need to get this thing in orbit!

*Note to Self 3: Kill all enemies by means of forklift.
Awww yiss. This is a worthy successor to the original! Jonah is charming, the jokewriting is excellent ("Reptilicus" was particularly wonderful), and Tom and Crow are still Tom and Crow. I can see that the puppeteers need a bit more practice (though so far I've only seen the first three eps, and I assume their operation improves...that reminds me of the original Seasons 0 & 1, when Trace & Kevin were still learning).
The Mads are fun; huzzah for the return of the Invention Exchange; and the new door sequence is wonderful!
My only beef so far is that Gypsy just isn't Gypsy. As is, she feels superfluous. Hoping her character either evolves more or reverts to the original silly girl. RICHARD BASEHEART!
Oh am I loving this? OH YEAH I AM!!!!! I have watch so far episodes 1-4. They all are too funny. I think they are doing it justice and can't nothing go wrong. Some of the others over on the Facebook Mystery Singles Theater 3000 are getting a little upset cause they are saying it's not cheap enough. I'm like what the heck?! I love it. It looks to good to be cheap. Yes I know that the older show was done on a much small scale of money but hey that's what most of the Kickstarter was for. To get money to make newer puppets and newer set design. I can't complain cause I just can't get enough of it. I'm loving it to MUCH! Can I say that too much cause I "DO" love it.
My favorite parts so far is the fourth wall breaking jokes. Like the Netflix joke about not getting ratings or the on going joke of the Theme song where the robots keep wondering what's going on every time Jonah keeps getting sucked into the tube thing.
Just to good love the puppeterring. Everyone is doing great. Writing is good and can't either wait for more characters from the older show to come on too.
Joel's cameos are fab. And the movie choices thus far are wonderfully hideous (I've seen the first 3 eps as of this posting). Dear frog but what were the filmmakers thinking in Cry Wilderness? Was that a kids' film? A weird comedy? A faux-nature film using up the various feral animals the director's buddy had whimpering around? Wow.
Hehe, a mashup of two of my favorite things- Stranger Things and MST:
"Where's his nipple?!?"
Now that's that I'm talking about. That would be funny to see them rip on all the things on Netflix. How about them doing "Orange is the new Black?" I would love to see them do more of these.
Glad everyone is enjoying it so far. I'm only up to episode 7 myself (besides seeing them when we filmed them). It really is a lot of fun!
So are you able to discuss what part of Crow you were preforming while filming these shows?
I'm lead puppeteer, body/head/eyes. Puppeteer Carla Rudy is controlling the arms. I also voice/puppeteer M. Waverly in episode 1108. Puppeteer Russ Walko is doing his amazing Rowlf as Growler in episode 1114.
You voice too? Have you ever got to meet Joel and the rest of the other original cast of MST3K?
I have, at one time or another, met most of them, yes. I was an Associate Producer on Cinematic Titanic. Joel was behind this recent return of the show, so yes I've me him.
So awesome you got to meet the man himself!
I've got to catch up watching them. My interent was cut off (money problems) so I haven't got to watch more of the season. So I hope I can catch up before I have to start paying for the update for Netflix.
