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!

Thanks for listening!

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.

Episode 47 – Santa Claus Conquers The Martians

Posted

iTunesNewGIR

Hello and happy holidays! (whatever holidays those may be).

Dr. Odd has mysteriously disappeared, leaving us completely unsupervised up here in space. Since this was the case, we threw a dart at our space calendar and decided that by our calculations (and we’re both very good at regular math and calendar related math) it was probably prettttty close to the Christmastime holidays down on earth, which is great because our audiolog is about MST3K S3E21 – Santa Claus Conquers the Martians! This episode is truly a treat – the movie itself is poorly made and has the world’s most obnoxious theme song, but it has a lot of heart and is genuinely enjoyable in spots. The riffing from Joel and the bots is SPOT ON this episode. These two factors combine to make this a classic episode – great for watching over and over again, or for introducing someone new to the joys of MST3K.

Don’t forget to head over to our facebook page and to follow us on twitter. If you’re really in the mood to spread some holiday cheer, then stop by our iTunes page and leave a nice review.

Episode 46 – The Unearthly

Hello everyone! Don’t be scared! That isn’t a living jack-o-lantern filled with fake blood grinning at you! That’s just Dr. Odd with a mouthful of cough drops. A LOT of cough drops. On second thought, maybe you should be scared.

This week we discuss MST3K S3E20 – The Unearthly, a slow-moving garbage barge of a movie that even MST3K riffing failed to salvage. Luckily, this episode is balanced out with a couple of delightful shorts – “Posture Pals” and “Appreciating Our Parents”. These shorts were able to pull this episode back from the void of extreme boredom. Man, is The Unearthly bad. I don’t think we can stress that enough.

Be sure to take some time and head over to our facebook page to join the discussion about all things MST3k! You can also follow us on Twitter, and if you’re feeling particularly generous (maybe because we warned you about The Unearthly?) stop by our iTunes page and write us a nice review.

Episode 45 – War Of The Colossal Beast

I want to start off by saying that it isn’t our fault we ALLEGEDLY might be sky criminals. Unintentional sky criminals. Sorry about the headaches.

This month we watches MST3K S3E19 – War of the Colossal Beast, an unnecessary sequel to a movie that probably didn’t need to be made in the first place. Seth kind of liked some of the makeup? Luckily this episode also featured the phenominal short – Mr. B Natural, which kind of redeems the whole thing. It’s about a demon woman who uses her dark powers to convince middle schoolers to join the band and buy CONN brand musical instruments. It’s… it’s really unique.

Make sure to stop by our little slice of facebook, like our page and join the discussion about MST3K, follow us on Twitter, or if you’re compelled by the shrieking spirit of Mr. B Natural, stop by our iTunes page and leave us a nice review.

Thanks for listening!

Episode 44 – Star Force: Fugitive Alien II

Learning is fun! At least that’s what Dr. Odd wants us to believe, and even then, learning all about cheese doesn’t really seem that helpful. This will all (hopefully) make sense once you listen to the episode.

This week we discuss MST3k S3E18 – Star Force: Fugitive Alien II – a “movie” that has both a long, and very confusing title. Also, I put the word “movie” in quotes because this is just another Sandy Frank re-edit of a Japanese television show, except this time it was re-edited to not make any sense at all!
