Episode 51 – Space Travelers

Posted

iTunesNewGIR

We’re excited to dig into the first episode of MST3K season 4, and Dr. Odd is excited about managing a baseball team! A werewolf butler baseball team! But not as excited as he is to tell us about his “roller derby” experiences. Who knew Dr. Odd was so athletic? Certainly not us!

This episode we discuss MST3K Season 4 Episode 1 Space Travelers, which may be the most star studded film they’ve had on the show yet! It’s also one of the most boring and dour films they’ve had on the show to date, despite the fact that it actually won an Academy Award (which we also have serious issue with, but not for the reasons you might think).

We also have a couple of BIG announcements! The first is that we’re launching a Patreon page to allow listeners like you to help support the show! Donating just 1$ a month helps us pay for things like hosting, new equipment, and to spend more time working on making more shows, and more content. It will get you access to a spinoff podcast we’re launching – “Dr. Odd’s Cinematic Fun Dumpster” where Jeff, Seth and Dr. Odd discuss films from Dr. Odd’s personal collection (spoiler alert: they’re all hilariously terrible). The first episode of this show will be free to all listeners in this feed, but then will be a patreon exclusive starting in April.

The second big announcement is that starting in May, we will start doing TWO episodes of this show a month! The first will be our regularly scheduled episode where we continue with the current episode chronology, but the second will be over an episode of the new Season 11 launching on Netflix in April. We wanted to do this not only because we love making episodes of this show, but also because we didn’t want to wait several years to discuss the new, hot, fresh, brand-new MST3K episodes.

Don’t forget to head on over to our facebook page to join the discussion, follow us on twitter, and leave us a review on iTunes! And if you can find it in your heart (and wallet) to donate to our Patreon, we will love you forever!

Thanks for listening!

Episode 50 – Master Ninja II

Posted

iTunesNewGIR

Hello everybody! You know, sometimes when life gives you lemons, you challenge yourself by shoving an entire lemon in your mouth and trying to eat it. That old adage has never been more true, especially for us this episode.  We also discuss the final episode of season 3, S3E24 – Master Ninja II, which is really just two episodes of a TV show standing on each others’ shoulders while wearing a trench coat and trying to convince everyone that they’re a real movie. It does have a hamster in it though (the film, not the trench coat)!

 

Once you’ve finished listening, you can head over to our facebook page and join the discussion about MST3K, life, and those little plastic tables that used to come on the center of pizzas. You can also follow us on Twitter, and if you’re feeling like moving one step closer to being our internet best friends, stop by our iTunes page and leave us a review.

Episode 49 – The Castle Of Fu Manchu

iTunesNewGIR

Hello friends! It’s nice to see you again! Things are still totally normal up here in space, and this week Dr. Odd let us watch a recording of the world series and showed us his newest hobby! An old friend returns for some goofs as well!

We also discussed MST3K S3E23 – The Castle Of Fu Manchu – the film equivalent of spending an entire day staring at grains of sand being blown around in the wind, except there isn’t any wind and at the end of the day you find out the grains of sand actually had character names. This movie is pure Deep Hurting, and is so bad that it actually negatively affects the episode enjoyment quite a bit. That’s a huge shame because the host segments are actually some of the best in the series so far (particularly the final segment), but even that can’t save things as a whole. We still had a lot of fun talking about it though!

Once you’re done listening, you can head over to our facebook page and join the discussion of all things MST3K, follow us on Twitter, or if you’re really wanting to wash the taste of The Castle of Fu Manchu out of your mouth, stop by our iTunes page and leave a reveiw!

Episode 48 – Master Ninja I

Hello everyone! I hope that you’re enjoying the summertime down on earth, running around and capturing defunct mid-2000’s celebrities on your flip phone app. Or maybe that’s just Dr. Odd.

This episode we discuss MST3K S3E22 – Master Ninja I, a MST3K episode that we didn’t really like that much, riffing a movie that we kind of did like… This paradox has left us shaken to our collective cores – we’ll be over here sitting in the corner, rocking back and forth with our knees clutched to our chests mumbling about racist stereotype accents.

If you don’t already, you should head over to our Facebook Page and join the discussion about all things MST3K, follow us on Twitter, and if you’re feeling extra nice – go to our itunes page and leave us a nice review!

Thanks for listening!
