Episode 33 – Daddy-O

Posted by on Mar 13, 2014 in Gizmonic Institutes Radio | 0 comments

iTunesNewGIR

This week, between the dice rolls of epic adventure, the gang sits down to talk about boring beatnick wannabe film Daddy-O and THE BEST SHORT WE’VE SEEN SO FAR EVER, Alphabet Antics. Also, the host segments in this episode are good. Like, REALLY good.

Once you’re done listening (or during, if you’re good at multi-tasking), you should head over to our Facebook page and join the MST3K/episode/random stuff discussion, or follow us on Twitter. And if you want a +D50 to your Awesome stat, stop by our page on iTunes and leave us a review!

Thanks for listening!

Episode 32 – Time of the Apes!

Have you ever been sitting around watching Planet of the Apes and said to yourself “I wish this movie was a lot weirder!” Well then, sir or madame, I have the MOVIE for you. Time of the Apes is a time travel-y, UFO-y, Japanese version of Planet of the Apes that has just the right amount of bad and weird to make a great MST3K episode. Joel and the bots are on point this episode delivering strong riffs over a movie that manages to be weird and loveable enough to make you not hate it.

Once you’re done listening, stop by our Facebook page and join our many discussions about all things MST3K, or follow us on Twitter. Also don’t be afraid to travel forward in time to visit a race of talking apes, but if that turns out to be too much of a time commitment, stop by our iTunes page instead and leave us a review.

Episode 31 – Stranded In Space!

iTunesNewGIR

I’m not going to lie, the title of this episode hits a little close to home for us. And not like that time Seth kept claiming he was a Jungle Goddess, mostly because we actually ARE stranded in space. Imagine our disdain when we found out that not only was the main character in this movie NOT stranded in actual space, but the ‘alien’ world on which he WAS stranded was essentially a suburb of Los Angeles. Whoever made this movie should be ashamed. For more than one reason.

Once you’ve finished listening, you should head over to our facebook page, and follow us on twitter. If you feel like being a super-extra great, stop by our iTunes page as well and leave us a nice review.

Episode 30 – Gamera VS Barugon

Heeeeyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy there, friends! It’s been awhile. Sorry about that, we had some extemporaneous circumstances we had to deal with. But the important thing is, WE’RE BACK!

And boy-howdy, what a doozie of a movie to come back to. Gamera VS Barugon is a Japanese Kaiju movie featuring Gamera, except without much Kaiju action, most of the things that make Gamera movies great (where is his dumb child sidekick?) and very few scenes that actually include GAMERA. Regardless, it’s still a very strong MST3K episode, and should be cherished. CHERISH IT!

Once you’ve finished listening (or during, if you’re a multi-tasker) you can follow us on Twitter or head over to our Facebook group and join the active discussion about all things MST3K (among other things). If you’re SUPER glad that we’re back, go to our iTunes page and leave us a nice review – it helps other people like you who enjoy MST3K to find and enjoy the show!

This week we watched Pod People. There’s nothing else to really say. We aren’t shy that this is one of (if not our top) favorite episode we’ve watched (and possibly all time). All that’s left to do now is to sit back, relax, and listen to how much we love Pod People, Music from the Hearts of Space, and remembering how we went to school with Faruk Alatan.

Once you’re done listening, pop by our facebook page and join the post-episode discussion, say hi on twitter, or leave us a winged potato-I mean REVIEW on our iTunes page.

Thanks for listening!

Episode 28 – Gamera!

Yay! We finally got to watch the first Gamera Episode! What exactly is it about Gamera that makes us love him so much? Is it his confusing origin story? Is it the fact that one of his powers is to shoot sparklers out of his shell and spin around? Who knows! We just love him and we love this episode a lot.

When you’re done listening, head over and join the discussion of all things MST3K on our Facebook page, and follow us on Twitter for episode updates. If you love Gamera as much as we do, go to our iTunes page and leave us a review.

Episode 28 – Cave Dwellers!

iTunesNewGIR

Yay! We’re back! And boy oh boy, is the first episode of the third season of MST3K a doozie. Cave Dwellers totally steals our idea of a 20 second recap and expands it into a 10 minute slew of fantastic names and places. And that’s just the beginning! Several growling snakes, a hang-glider and some coconut bombs later, and you have yourself a MOVIE. Too bad there aren’t really any cave dwellers present.

Once you’re done listening to the show, head over and discuss on our facebook page, or say hi on twitter! And if you’re feeling really REALLY happy that we’re back, go to our iTunes page and leave a review.

Episode 26 – Godzilla vs the Sea Monster!

Do yourselves a favor – grab a slice of pizza and familiarize yourselves with Terry O’Quinn before tonight’s audio log. What am I talking about? Of course you’re already familiar with Terry O’Quinn. Never mind.

This week we discuss the FINAL episode of Season 2 – Godzilla vs the Sea Monster! It’s a pretty good ep… just not AS good of an episode as the previous Godzilla vs Megalon. In our opinion anyway. We’ve been wrong before.

Once you’ve taken in the aural glory that is this week’s audio log, you can head over to our facebook page to chat about it (or anything else), follow us on twitter, AND if you’re feeling like being a real hero to captured pacific islanders everywhere, leave us a review on our iTunes page.

Episode 25 – Godzilla Vs Megalon!

He jock it made of steel! KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK! Japanese monster movie time! With a robot! And… other stuff!

We get a kick out of this week’s movie offering, partially because it’s a Japanese monster movie and we love cheesy Japanese monster movies, and also because it’s a pretty great ep of MST3K. Now if you were to quantify HOW great of an ep it is compared to other awesome cheesy Japanese MST3K episodes (Prince of Space and ANYTHING with the word ‘Gamera’ in the title jump to mind), it’s pretty average. We’re celebrating this episode in particular because it’s our FIRST cheesy Japanese monster movie episode. Also it’s great.

Once you’ve spent some time with us, and our friends Godzilla and Jet JaguarĀ  (I wish!) you should head over and chat us up on our facebook page, and follow us on twitter. If you really want the blessings of the world’s greatest robot Jet Jaguar, leave us a review on iTunes.
