Weekend Discussion Thread: Introducing the Show to Millenials

Alert regular Jaybird suggests:

What about a discussion of everyone’s experiences trying to introduce younger people to MST3K. I had a mortifying experience along those lines recently, and it made me realize just how hard it is for the average millennial to relate to a show like MST3K. Most of these people have […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Your MST3K-Themed Restaurant or Bar

An alert reader suggests:

Have we ever had a WDT of “Name your MST3K bar or restaurant”?

I would have a bar called Beer on the Sun, kind of a weird Canadian/Jimmy Buffet hybrid. Then again, “Beer on the Sun” is pretty much my answer for everything.

What would your pick be?

Weekend Discussion Thread: The 25-Episodes that Define MST3K

Paste Magazine had a piece this week called “The 25-Episode History of Mystery Science Theater 3000.”

I know a good topic to steal when I see one. (And author Chris Morgan noted wryly on Twitter that it’s an idea that’s been had before.)

So, do you agree with their list? If not, […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Your MST3K Music Label

Alert reader Troy writes:

Say you were starting a MST3K music label… what would it be called, and who would you sign and/or what albums would you produce?

I’d probably go with the obviously named It Stinks! Records, starting off with Winky’s Songs For My Totally Hot Girlfriend (You Don’t Know Her), the […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: How to Do Jobs in MSTed Movies

“Leo Artunian” opines:

I saw a new book recently that provides job manuals for jobs without manuals, such as “How to be a wrestler in Mexico City”[!]. “How to be a musician without an instrument in Mozambique,” and so on. How about asking for “job manuals” (or perhaps a list of five instructions) […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Eps Your Significant Other Enjoys

Alert reader Rick suggests:

Significant others. Don’t we love them? And, do they love our obsession with MST3K? My girlfriend of seven years was a MSTie Turkey Day fan in college, but beyond that had been away from the show until we met. She now is the proud owner of her own top […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: MSTed Movies You Saw Before MST3K

We did something very like this a number of years ago, but let’s do it again anyway. Alert regular Susan suggests…

Another suggestion: MST’ed movies you saw **before** they were riffing fodder, and what you thought of them. My contribution would be memories of a very wimpy child. I saw “The Mole People” […]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Your Peabody Episode

Alert reader Rick suggests:

What is your Peabody episode? Longtime MSTIES know that episode 519- Outlaw was the experiment that was submitted, and, won the coveted Peabody award for. As a long time viewer of the series, I have my own “Peabody” episode, along with runner ups: My episode is: #805 The Thing […]

What did you think? An open thread for your reports. I will post something later.

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 […]
