Weekend Discussion Thread: Cheering Someone Up with MST3K

Our pal Timmy, aka goalieboy82, presents us with a great story:

3 years ago, i had a friend who was pregnant and need a place to live. i helped her find a place. she had to take a train to the place. i was chatting with her online as she was going to the place, and i sent her the MST3K episode “Sword and the Dragon” (she is Russian and she likes dragons).
So, with that in mind, have you cheered someone up with MST3K?
[epilogue: she is doing great now and her son will be 3 in August.]

Do you have a story?

Weekend Discussion Thread: “If I Had Seen This One First…”

One of our alert regulars notes that, in a comment thread, pete_plums_drivers_license “had a good suggestion for a future WDT: ‘If I’d seen this MST3K episode the first time I tuned in, I probably never would have come back.'”

With the usual caveat that even the worst MST3K episodes are better than most of what is on TV, I would have to pick “Radar Secret Service,” the episode that puts me to sleep every time (despite the great short).

Your pick?
