Weekend Discussion Thread: Best/Worst Bosses

Alert reader Ken suggests:

Best boss/worst boss in an MST’d movie/short.

The best boss has to be the troubled “Mr. Warren” in “Hired!” He has no idea how to manage people but he’s willing to learn from his flying elf-swattin’ dad!

What’s your pick?

Weekend Discussion Thread: Rediscovering a Forgotten Episode

Alert reader Andrew has an intriguing question:

Over the last few years, I’ve found that going back through episodes that I don’t remember that well is practically as exciting as seeing them for the first time. My goal is to only re-see official re-issued copies, because it’s wonderful to see them crisper than […]

Joel to Present Another Online Turkey Day

Although Joel has been hinting (and a couple of times point-blank saying) that it would happen for quite a while now, our pals at have the official announcement that there WILL be another online Turkey Day marathon this year.

“Where the Hell Are You?” on YouTube

I loved that “Where the Hell Are You?” song at the RiffTrax Live. Turns out it was commissioned, as part of the Kickstarter, by one of the regular commenters here, “Snowdog.”

He got permission to post it on YouTube, which he has done.

Enjoy, and THANKS Snowdog!

Weekend Discussion Thread: Stingers for Episodes 101 & 102

Alert regular Sitting Duck points out:

Let’s talk about the absence of stingers in the early episodes. Now I know we’ve technically already done this topic, but I think it’s worth revisiting for two reasons. The last time was way back in 2008. Since then, Shout has gotten the rest of the first […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Film/Short Crossovers

Alert regular Ken writes:

Which movie characters would you like to see make cameo appearances in the shorts, and what would they do? Me, I can imagine Torgo paying Nick a visit in “What To Do on a Date” and showing him how to put all those wicked hand moves on the ladies, […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Best Eps for a Halloween Marathon

Alert regular Sue has another good one:

It seems impossible, but I can’t find that you’ve had a “Best/Worst Episodes for a Halloween Marathon” WDT. I won’t chime in with my choices just yet, as I’d like to think about it a little longer. “Worst” would be eps that are supposed to be […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Favorite Biblical/Religious References

Alert reader Ryan suggests:

So I was recently watching “Jack Frost” and it hit me that there are a lot of biblical references in that episode. Such as “Wow, Peter must be out denying everybody today” [when we hear a rooster crow] or “the three horses of the apocalypse, the fourth had after […]

The month we’ll be rushing the Halloween season with episode 604- ZOMBIE NIGHTMARE. More info here. If you live in the area, […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Best Eps for When You’re Sick

I’ve had a low-grade summer cold for about two weeks, and that has mutated into awful post-nasal drip that has given me a hacking cough for about a week. So I’m sick.

And it occurred to me that I’m constantly seeing tweets to the effect of: “I’m sick, so I’m curling up in […]
