Weekend Discussion Thread: Best Eps for When You’re Sick

I’ve had a low-grade summer cold for about two weeks, and that has mutated into awful post-nasal drip that has given me a hacking cough for about a week. So I’m sick.

And it occurred to me that I’m constantly seeing tweets to the effect of: “I’m sick, so I’m curling up in [...]

Two Items

Two things that might have escaped your notice:

1. Hold on to your hat for this one. Trace and Joel, along with Firesign Theatre’s Phil Proctor and former-co-host-of-“Mr. Show”-turned-major-TV-star Bob Odenkirk, provided voice talents for an overdub of something called “A Belly Full of Anger,” which has to be seen to be believed. [...]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Cringeworthy Moments in MSTed Movies

Alert reader James writes in to say:

This week’s thread about non-sensical lines got me thinking about things that made the movies MST did truly cringeworthy (as opposed to being arduous because they were boring). Even things that get riffed can penetrate and affect the viewer, causing there to be some basis for [...]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Laughing at MST3K at the Wrong Moment

This one’s been sitting in the cue for a couple of years:

Have you ever had MST playing in the background while you were ‘fooling’ around with your wife, husband, or significant other and started laughing at an inopportune time when you heard a funny line? Klisch

Well, no, Klisch, but let’s expand [...]

Weekend Discussion Thread: ‘Say What?’

A certain regular who asked not to be named opines:

[Recently], several of us [commenters in a certain thread] were commenting about how silly the spam messages were, which you’ve since deleted. They sounded like something weirdly translated into English, and I said this might be a good WDT, perhaps call it, “Say [...]

Weekend Discussion Thread: What Would You Say to MSTed Movie People?

Alert regular Steve sent a suggestion that I am going to bounce off of for this weekend’s question: If you could jump into a time machine and visit anyone involved in any MSTed movie while they were making it, what would you say to him or her? Don’t worry if your comment might [...]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Favorite ‘Wizard of Oz’ Reference

I cannot believe we haven’t done this one, but apparently we haven’t.

This month was the 75th anniversary of the debut of “The Wizard of Oz,” (the movie I argue is the last, perhaps the only, commonly shared experience in America) and on another forum somebody has been asking “How many ‘Wizard of [...]

Weekend Discussion Thread: Trailer Talk

Alert reader “Gobi” writes:

If you’re like me, and I know I am, then you enjoy movie trailers that begin with “In a world where…”. So, why not use that style for a MSTIED movie?

“In a world where concierges have goat legs and speech impediments, one man must do battle with The [...]

Report from The Hollywood Show

Our roving reporter Paul “Projected Paul” DerHagopian attended The Hollywood Show autograph convention held recently at the LAX Westin hotel. Here’s his report. All photos were taken by him and his cohorts.


I met John Saxon from 512- Mitchell. I mentioned to him that I heard a rumor that he was annoyed that [...]

Weekend Discussion Thread: It’s a Summer Picnic and Everyone’s Comin’

Alert regular Sue is back with:

But oh my yes (said in my best little old Wisconsin lady church voice), it’s time for the church or community annual summer picnic and potluck, For example…

That salad bar courtesy of “The Truck Farmer” looks so good. But should that nice Mr. Rowsdower have brought [...]
