Sooo...after the Count made some remarks to me yesterday concerning foreign chocolate bars and RAM chips, I suddenly felt hungry for a Toblerone. So I popped in Mystery Science Theatre 3K's "Escape 2000" and laughed my scrawny yellow butt off for a couple of hours. I hadn't watched it in years and had forgotten just how great an ep it was: "Jim Henson's Chairman Mao Babies!" "New York City ran out of cops today..." The many, many Nosferatu Chick jokes... and the one which made me laugh the hardest, at the press conference held by the evil corporation forcing people to Leave the Bronx, when Scary Reporter Chick yells "The GC Corportaion sucks!" as she's dragged out, and the other reporters immediately turn to the corp head: "Is this true? Do you suck?" So, I propose, since I've noticed quite a few other MSTies around here: List your favorite epsiodes! Note I didn't say "the best", 'cause I'm sure those will vary as widely as people's favorite Far Side cartoons. Which eps did YOU most love? Mine are, in no particular order: 1. "Earth vs the Spider". This was the first one I ever saw, and I still love it. The "Speech" short is also priceless. 2. "Fugitive Alien" & "Fugitive Alien 2". They TRRRIIIIEEED to kill me with a forkliiiiift! 3. "Warrior of the Lost World". MEGAWEAPON! MEGAWEAPON! 4. "Outlaw". Most. Worst. Buffalo shots. Ever. 5. "Pod People". Trumpy. Movies A, B, and C, and they all...stink! 6. "Eegah" and "Human Duplicators" for the classic Richard Kiel double-header. Unh...unn...Roooooxxy! 7. "Mitchell". Lumpy luscious Joe Don Baker goodness. 8. "Manos: the Hands of Fate". I was AT both MST conventions, and yes, this intrepid reporter did verily shake in my shoes to see the awesome Parade of Torgos... 9. "SST: Deathflight". One of the REALLY early eps I am lucky enough to have a copy of. Just 'cause it has Billy Crystal and Peter Graves. 10. I can never recall the correct title: the one with Gregory Peck and Gene Hackman, where Hackman is one of three astronauts stranded in a space capsule. Decent enough film, but what I love most is Crow's truly killer Peck impression. I think I was literally on the floor for several minutes after Crow-as-Peck said "I want this man savagely beaten!" 11. "Tormented". Best of the Bert I. Gordons. 12. "The Amazing Colossal Man" and its sequel, "War on the Colossal Beast". Uh... have you seen Glenn? 13. "Mr B Natural." Yeah I know it's a short, technically. It's also quite arguably the funniest thing the guys ever did. 14. "Godzilla vs the Sea Monster". BEST of the 'Zillas. Yeah, I said it. You wanna make somethin' of it, buffet entree? 15. "Time of the Apes". (If I recall the title rightly.) WHY doesn't Johnny care? Naturally there are others. I had the Master Ninja Theme Song as my answering machine message for a while... But I'd have to rank these as the ones which had me gasping for breath most often. Anyone else?
