Weekend Discussion Thread: 4th of July Episodes

Alert reader “Gobi” suggests:

With July 4th upon us, what patriotism-themed eps will MSTies be watching this weekend? “Starfighters”, anyone?

Since I think that topic is a bit narrow, I am going to widen it a bit: What episodes are good “4th of July weekend” watching, not just on the patriotism angle, but […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: MST3k-Inspired Horse Names

Alert readers Steve & Keri suggest:

With the recent triple crown win, I thought: what if I owned a racehorse, and what MST-related name would I give it. I always thought “Prince of Space” would make a great racehorse name. Others I like include “Flag on the Moon.” “Satellite of Love,” “Sirveaux” and […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Favorite MSTed Dads

Alert regular Timmy suggests, since it’s Father’s Day weekend:

Who is your favorite father on mst3k (and least favorite too). Mine is Joel since he was a father figure to the bots (while Mike was the crazy uncle).

Gotta go with the permissive, clueless dad in “The Violent Years.” Oh, and he […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: ‘Comfort Food’ Episodes

Alert regular Brandon opines:

The other day I found myself thinking about what I call “comfort food” episodes of Mystery Science Theater. These are my go-to episodes when the chips are down. Bad day at work, personal crisis, whatever the situation. These episodes are my mental mac-and-cheese, the thing that can make me […]

It was a good idea and so I’m stealing it.

Let’s hear your picks for the MSTed movie Justice League (and what each member would bring to the table).

Ambitious […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Truly Bottom-of-the-Barrel Movies

Alert reader Ed suggests:

We’re having a small exchange of comments on the announcement of the new Rifftrax of “Dark Power.” There were a couple of comments as to Rifftrax introducing, even people who thought they’d seen it all, to bizarre-beyond-belief movies, such as (natch) “Dark Power” and “Santa Claus and the Ice […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Military-Related Humor

Happy Memorial Day weekend!

Alert regular Timmy offers:

My father was in the Air Force (he was a B-52 navigator for Strategic Air Command). A few years ago I showed him the clip from SCCTM from Cinematic Titanic that had the B-52 in it. He laugh at that clip. For those who haven’t […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Dated-but-Still-Funny Riffs

Alert regular Brandon opines:

How about dated or topical riffs that are still very funny? I know we often mention riffs that feel outdated, or ones where the reference has been sort of lost, but what about ones that may be dated but still make us crack up laughing. An example for me […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Tweets from MSTed Movie Characters

The oft-reliable Sue brings in another good one:

If MSTed movie characters tweeted. May I offer up:

The dog’s meat, have you seen it? #WorstMarriageEver

Ebzolootly fessinating. #Wahrwilf

My first thought:

He’ll never touch you, Terri, you’re dirt. #skank

Have at it!

RiffTrax Live: Your Thoughts?

My theater was about 3/4 full and people were laughing a lot. I know I sure was.

Great show.

Oh, and my doctor recommends against having a hip dick installed. Just sayin’.

Your thoughts?
