Has anyone one else who watched the show noticed that crow never is? He rarely faces the screen
One thing people always forget to mention when they recommend MST3k is that you have to actually like bad movies in the first place to really appreciate it. I can't imagine them myself, but I understand that there are a lot of people out there who actually don't like the idea of seeing a bad movie, no matter the reason. Those people are going to have trouble liking MST3k. Eh, no biggie.Shjade said:MST3K had some good jokes, but I could never watch it. Why? Because you had to sit through a crap movie to hear the jokes, which were not constantly great and not in enough quantity to drown out the crap movie.
I get the appeal, but no thanks to the show.
I started a friend off with Manos: The Hands of Fate, and Santa Clause Conquers the Martians. Those ones seemed to work out well as now she often asks to watch more ever since.Ghengis John said:Hey Bob, which episode would you suggest newcomers begin on? I think I'd have to go with Hobgoblins.
Absolutely. I think they had a sci-fi interview when they first went over where they had people attack them on it all as well, but they've given wonderful responses every time out (when they aren't taken off guard by it at any rate).RedheadedKate said:It wasn't shitting on other people's art, as much as it was "let's not take art so seriously for a little while and try to get some laughs." With Rifftrax, the guys have done Best Picture winners because sometimes, some people find silliness fun.
You didn't like it, and that's cool, but just because I don't like the taste of Indian food doesn't mean I have no respect for people who do.
P.S. Fraggle Rock was awesome!
Oooo. I'm glad it worked out well, but I still think Manos doesn't really work as an introduction. I've actually been thinking about this today a little bit (read: far too much), and I think I can explain why. (I'm speaking to the established fan base here.)ChristovR said:I started a friend off with Manos: The Hands of Fate, and Santa Clause Conquers the Martians.
