Keep those thread topics coming, but here’s one from me:
In the episode guide discussions, I often see people talking about how this episode or that episode is or is not in your regular viewing rotation, and wasn’t in that rotation before but eventually got to be in the regular rotation, or whatever.
So: You’re [...]
Alert reader Ryan asks:
What MST3K characters would you want in your foxhole? The enemy has surrounded you its you and your five, and you gotta hold out till reinforcements arrive (or till the bitter end). Who would you have with you (and why)?
I can’t come up with five, but I know one for [...]
Okay this one’s a little out there, but I think you’re up to the challenge from Andrew, who opines:
I was watching “Is This Love?” the other night and had a thought. If you got Peg from this short, Judy from “Young Man’s Fancy”, and Sue from “Are You Ready for Marriage” together, I [...]
In the episode guide we have come to the end of season seven, and that means the departure of one Trace Beaulieu. I have said in the past that Trace was the heart of MST3K (Mike was the brain, Kevin the soul). I said in that post: “It really is hard to imagine [...]
Alert reader Patricia muses:
I know you’ve had a discussion about which movies would be good remakes, and I know that when there was a discussion about the MST movie being remade, Canucklehead actually mentioned Pixar remaking it as an animated movie.
But what if the Pixar/Dreamworks form of 3-D animation was used to [...]
Alert reader Timmy suggests:
How about a topic on things that remind you of MST3K. i live near a busy airport in the dc area and i see planes take off ever so often. i always say once a day, “john sununu goes for a haircut” when i see a plane takeoff. [...]

You’ve probably had that experience. Tell us about it.
Here’s mine: It’s the [...]
You may recall our friend. longtime MSTie and painter Jean Jackson passed away a while back. Her family has decided that her original paintings — and some other items — should go to the MSTies who would enjoy them most.
That’s why they’ve set up a charity auction of all her work and other [...]
During the episode guide discussion, the commenters got into a discussion about which of the characters was the biggest jerk. And commenter “Robot Rump!” asked:
have we ever established who is the biggest MST’d jerk?
We had a “smuggest” character thread, but that’s not the same thing, really. So let’s have it. Name as many [...]
Last week’s episode guide movie was from Roger Corman, and longtime regular “Sitting Duck” asks:
While the Corman films featured on MST3K are a far cry from being masterpieces, not everything he was involved with was irredeemably bad schlock. Some of the schlock he produced was reasonably good, or at least could qualify as [...]
