    Housewife jokes and secretary jokes…Y’know, I wonder if they’re stretching themselves a little too much, wandering into unfamiliar comic territory like this.

    Eric J.:

    Well, if you have suggestions on what theme(s) of film shorts Mary Jo and Bridget should be riffing, email RiffTrax.

    Otherwise, there’s plenty of news on the “MST3K” reboot for you to enjoy.

    That is, if you enjoy anything besides being a troll. :struggle:

    Bridget and Mary Jo are not your bitches.

    I don’t understand why discussing politics is verboten while ad hominem bickering seems to be A-OK.

    Well, if Eric J. would take his meds, there would be no bickering. :shy:

    Yeah, I can see where Mary Jo and Bridget should stop doing woman-centric jokes. Just as soon as Mike, Kevin, Bill, Joel, etc. stop doing jokes about enjoying a little female booty whenever it pops up in movies (which is a LOT).

    However, I would like to say that as a former secretary, I mean administrative assistant, I found the trailer for Duties of a Secretary to be traumatic. I’ll be off in the corner with my beverage of choice for the rest of the day.

    Discussing politics here sounds like a great idea! I’ve been looking for reasons to despise my fellow MSTies more!

    Man, that’s just the kind of comment I’d EXPECT from a Whig!

    Just so long as no one has negative feelings towards my involvement in the Dixiecrat party. :-)

    In the Soup short, Bridget makes just about the rudest comment I have heard in a riff, but it’s still hilarious. Don’t take that as a criticism of them in the slightest.

    I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the dynamic of those two riffing. It’s nice to have a couple of gals poke fun at banality instead of three guys. They certainly sound like they’re relaxed and having a lot of fun doing this, and I think those are key ingredients for audience enjoyment. In some ways they’re more naturalistic than the previous groupings of riffers we’ve encountered before. I hope they’re a regular part of Rifftrax for a good long while.
    All hail Bridget and Mary Jo, won’t you?

    Amen. I hope Cat-Women of the Moon is the first of many feature-length films that they riff. Well, it’s not really full-length, as Bridget explains. It’s short. But it’s not A short. It’s a movie. But a short one. The Gravity riff is excellent too. I haven’t bought any of their shorts but would if a bunch were collected on a DVD. Pretty please?

    I enjoyed The Magic Shelf (the original short has such a bizarre set-up, and it seems like it was thrown together in a day or two), and I’m looking forward to Duties of a Secretary.

    I really didn’t like MJ and Bridget’s Christmas DVD, but I’ve liked everything else I’ve seen them do since.
