BEVERLY HILLS, CALIF.–Hugh O’Brian, handsome leading man of films and TV, and notable philanthropist, died in his sleep at his home here. He was 91.
He is perhaps best remembered on screen for the lead role in the 1955-61 series “The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp.” MSTies will remember his role as […]
Alert regular Paul notes:
The recent RiffTrax Live: MST3k Reunion show marked the 20th live show broadcast in theaters. Which shows are your favorite?
Along with the MST3k Reunion show, I hold the December 2009 Holidays Shorts show among the best! It’s also composed solely of shorts, which helped maintain attention spans. Also, […]
Alert regular Kenneth suggests:
“What callbacks to the original show would you like to see in the revival?”
I would suspect they are going to light on these, but a few would be fun. A well-placed “hi-keeba,” for example.

Holiday gatherings are happening and alert regular Sue suggests:
We’ve had “which party in a MST’ed movie would you most like to be invited to” and “Which MST characters would you invite for Thanksgiving,” but how about “Which dinner or meal in a MSTed movie or short would you most like to be […]
Alert reader “Gobi” suggests:
With the release of “Expendables III”, two things occurred to me. First, why isn’t Joe Don Baker in it? Second, there’s a rich, untapped vein of talent available for a new movie to be titled “The MSTIEbles!” OK, the title needs work, but you get the idea. What’s your […]
Alert reader “Mooney” writes:
One thing I look for in MSTied films is all the neat old classic cars in the old not exactly classic films, which leads me to offer a potential subject for a thread.
What is your favorite vehicle, or means of transportation in a MSTied movie?
I think […]
Alert reader Janelle asks:
What references or assessments made in the show or ACEG do you disagree with? I mean, not everyone hates high energy prop comic Carrot Top or there wouldn’t be anyone going to his shows, right? Maybe there are MSTies that love Gallagher, Carrot Top or Jim Carrey. My […]
