I don't know if this has been talked about here before, a rudimentary search of the forum says no, but after coming across some sample clips from Star Trek V for a promotional CD my company is putting out I've pretty much concluded that this is made of win and god.

It's not MST3K, but hell, it's the closest we'd ever get to it. Hooray for Mike!

...yeah. This is why I haven't actually _listened_ to one of them yet. Erm.

The samples are pretty good. Accessible on the right side. I'd pay $3 for a few select ones, like the Star Trek ones.

Me and my friends (these kinds of things are better with company, after all), have watched several of them. They come close to being as funny as Mystery Science Theater, in my opinion, but I've only seen the best of those. They seem to drag in the third quarter of the movie, for some reason, and you miss the sheer absurdity of the movies MST3K lampooned, the exception being Trolls 2. If you're willing to spend the money, I think it's a worthy purchase.

This is indeed an awesome idea.

I don't know, I watched the Fifth Element one and it sort of left me a bit flat. There's so much to lampoon in that movie (despite the fact that I love it to bits) that I'm a bit disappointed that their preview was what they thought would give the best impression.

I saw this when he first started doing them, but I am not paying for them so I haven't heard any.

Maybe it's just me, but three bucks doesn't seem like much to get worked up about.

In a world where Excitebike, Kid Icarus or ZeldaII goes for $5, $3 would be 3/5 of that amount.

That is all

$3 is a lot for a podcast, considering 99% of podcasts are free.

I've watched four or five of these, and they're all pretty good. Someone else bought them, though. They're best when he has someone with him- sometimes one of the old group (Tom, Crow, that woman) is there with him and it adds a lot. I'd recommend Point Break, Predator and Casino Royale.
