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, […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: MSTed Movies That Would Make Good Saturday Morning Cartoons

Alert regular Timmy suggests:

I was thinking, what MSTed movie would make a good Saturday morning cartoon? I think that the Starfighters (on the lines of the old Beetle Bailey cartoon show from the 1960s*) and Mighty Jack (on the lines of any anime show). So what is yours, then? * Look it […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: What MSTed Movie Should Go to Series?

During the Angels Revenge episode guide comments, Bad Wolf asked:

Did we already do a Weekend Discussion about episodes we’d like to see go to series? This would definitely be one for me.

Oh I want to see a weekly Batwoman series. Everybody does.

Your pick?

Could the MST3K Logo Fit on the Moon?

Nerdist answers this burning question. Because Science…

Weekend Discussion Thread: The Many Faces of Mike

Alert reader Scott observes:

Mike did all kinds of characters and celebrity impressions on the show over the years. What do you think were some of his best? Or what impressions do you wish he’d tried? Personally, I loved his Morrissey


I talked about this in the episode guide entry for “Wild […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Random Appearance of MSTed Movies

Alert reader Thomas asks:

What moments from MSTed movies have you randomly seen, totally out of their original context? I don’t mean watching a MSTed film on an old horror movie program, unriffed. I’m talking about seeing moments from movies/shorts totally divorced from the movies that feature them. As an example, the former […]
