Weekend Discussion Thread: Truly Loathsome MST3K Movie Characters

I’m once again stealing a topic from Facebook, where a fellow named Luke Yount asked:

Is Watney Smith from Outlaw of Gor the most openly loathsome character from an episode of MST3K?

I would have to pick the two peeping tom military guys from “Attack of the the Eye Creatures.” I feel like […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: What Has MST3K Taught You?

Alert reader Stacy writes:

I was thinking that a possible discussion thread might be this…

“If MST3K has taught me anything, it’s… (fill in the blank).

For me, MST3K has taught me to be careful when saying the word “peanuts”. :-)

For me, it’s that meteors roam around space in swarms.

What about you?

Weekend Discussion Thread: What Pop Culture Disappointed You?

I am going to steal a discussion thread from a great Facebook page called MST3K Revival League and a fellow named Josh Brock. It’s a little outside the box, but it has generated hundreds of responses over there and I am curious what you guys are going to say.

Alright, this might […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Your Favorite Misheard/Misread Line

Alert regular MSTie suggests:

Best/Worst/Most Confusing misheard/misread/misunderstand line of dialog (sometimes known as a Mondegreen). Without a doubt, the “Idiot Control Now” song in Pod People is one giant Mondegreen.

Many of these come from bad sound or out of focus visuals. One of my favorites, from early in “Warrior of the Lost […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: MSTed Movie Characters You Wish Had Visited

Alert regular “Sitting Duck” sez:

Throughout MST3K’s run, characters from the shorts and movies have made appearances in the host segments. Which character who has not made such an appearance would you like to have seen on the SoL/in Deep 13/on the Hexfield? I’m going with Ro-Man of Robot Monster. He could have […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Bright Spots in Bad Movies

Alert regular MSTie suggests:

We’ve covered good acting performances in bad MST movies, but how about “Non-Acting Bright Spots in Otherwise Horrible Movies”? It could be particularly beautiful scenery, a surprisingly well-done camera shot, music, good special effects, etc. I thought of this the other night when watching “The Sky Divers.” When the […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: How Will You Watch the Debut?

Alert regular Steve writes:

So with the new season just weeks away — so close we can almost touch it — what plans do you have for the premier of MST3K Season 11? Party like it’s 1999 with a few hundred of your closest MISTIE friends? A quiet viewing with family? Just you, […]
