Sci-Fi's got some horrible monster movies on right now. Imagine that.

Croc is their current showpiece. Since it took about fifteen dollars to make, they couldn't get real crocodiles, so instead, they're taking clips from NATURE DOCUMENTARIES and mixing that with tense music and speeding it up. I would never have thought to do that.

You know, Sci-Fi would always play one of these movies after their episodes of MST3K, and it seemed like the implied message was, "here's how these guys did, now try it on your own!" With MST3K gone now, though, it just seems pointless.

You know, I'll probably have to turn in my geek card after this, but I've only seen one episode of MST3K, and while I thought it was kinda funny, I never really had the feeling that I'd want to go out of my way to watch it. Instead, I'd prefer just watching the movies.

I feel that sometimes.

Man, low-budget sci-fi movies are the best things to have on when your buddies are over.

You mean you and your buddies do not like to pull out the tissue box and sob over a soul-wrenching masterpiece like Cries & Whispers (http://www.amazon.com/Cries-Whispers-Collection-Harriet-Andersson/dp/B00005EBSF) from time to time?

The monster movies are for after we watch Cries & Whispers.

I'm bolding the problem. MST3K varies wildly from episode to episode - sometimes they're fall-off-your-chair, gut-wrenchingly funny, and sometimes they're "meh." A lot has to do with the source material - ask around for people's favourites.

Probably the best way to start is with MST3K: The Movie.

I never understood why people would buy boxed sets of that when you could just have your own friends over to watch a movie and do it. I honestly hate that whole idea of making money off of that, even more so now with rifftrax (http://www.rifftrax.com/)

The thing is, these guys are very, very good writers and performers.

We should all watch something like this and make fun of it, in real time...

With vent or xbox live (just start a party in halo 3 and everyone can join in) we could totally do this. Just need to figure out a time everyone could work out, and that everyone who wanted to be involved would have the movie.

Could someone record it? That would be good times.

Guys, Anaconda 3 (starring the one and only David Hassellhoff) will be premiering on Sci-Fi in fifteen minutes. It's going to be great.

This. This! THIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSS

It's a very rare thing when your average Joe can come up with funnier stuff than the MST3K team. Your friends are not as funny as Mike Nelson.

Santo (http://www.dvddrive-in.com/reviews/n-s/santoandbluedemonvsmonsters6970.htm) nights are quickly becoming a tradition at casa del Aquadeo. (At least, they would be, if they were easier to find in Canada...)

MST3K is a show where you have to see a really funny episode (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McgzrE6_LnA) before you get hooked.

I love that you can get whole episodes on YouTube. And that my PS3 is capable of streaming them. Bliss.
