Are you a fan of the cult television show, Mystery Science Theater 3000?

For Christmas, hulu.com has decided to provide us Mystie fanatics with a handful of episodes. http://www.hulu.com/mystery-science-theater-3000

What are you favorite episodes? Who's your favorite robot? Your favorite evil scientist?

@tsarstepan,
My favorite was when they were watching a movie about sponge divers in Greece. Except they ran the movie backwards and the plot was about a bunch of guys trying to start a sponge garden.

@panzade,
I like the little vignettes and songs. There's one with a middle-aged Asian woman watching a white man play what I think was a ukulele. I believe it was Joel who yelled out, "Play it like you mean it, Mr. Eddie's Father!"

And so I was hooked.

This is my absolute favorite song and it just so happens to be date-appropriate:

@Seed,

I also recommend their custom made commentary tracks! They made Twilight watchable. Now that's a cinematic miracle! http://i45.tinypic.com/sd08rk.jpg

@Seed,
MS3K is the brainfart that gave Martha Stewart the idea for her new show qwhere her daughter and some other broad riff on Martha Shows. It too could become a classic series (if Martha keeps "Not getting" the goof lines)

Like they did one about how Alexis said that her mom had such an obsession for cleaning that she would "lick the carpet".

@littlek,
If you don't mind the poor quality, a lot of people have entire episodes (legally so far) on youtube. All you have to do is after 9 or 10 minutes click on the next segment as they have to break up the episode into 9 minute chunks.

If you are a Martha hter, you will love this show because they are ruthless in how they take her apart. Sexual inuendo, jokes about her obsessions with stupid stuff and her penchant for overkill.(like ironing bedsheets)

Just finished watching the hideously plotless, pointless mobster/women wrestling film Racket Girls.

Bought two short films from Rifftrax today:

Individual Differences

A CLASSIC SHORT FROM THE PUBLIC DOMAIN! (Runtime: 23:47)
RIFFED BY: Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy & Bill Corbett (Released June 25, 2010)

http://www.rifftrax.com/shorts/individual-differences
Quote:
Meet Roy, elementary school student. Some children learn with more ease than others. Every child learns with more ease than Roy. He wants nothing from life except to be left alone: shy, silent, whittling off pieces of his desk in hopes that he’ll eventually find one that tastes good.

But his ill-tempered, hatchet-faced teacher (we’ll call her “Howard”) will have none of that. She goes out of her way to make an example of his dimness in front of the class, in order to teach valuable lessons to the other kids. These lessons primarily consist of new and exciting ways to make fun of Roy. She especially likes comparing him to his golden-boy older brother, George. Oh, you know George? Yeah, he is great, isn’t he! Just so smart, and strong, but still humble and decent...sorry, got lost in a “George” moment. It’s hard not to when he’s so much better than Roy. Roy really is the turd in the punchbowl of that family. You have to wonder what happened in the gene pool there...I mean, uh, being different is cool!

Join Mike, Kevin, and Bill as they ponder the horrors of Individual Differences! And don’t forget a bag of rotten fruit to throw at Roy’s piano recital!

Reading Growth: Basic Skills
A CLASSIC SHORT FROM THE PUBLIC DOMAIN!
RIFFED BY: Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy & Bill Corbett (Released May 21, 2010)

Reading: for now, it is the only way to experience the approximately four remaining books that have not been made into movies (three, after this summer's CGI heavy adaptation of Frog & Toad are Friends. Sam Worthington will play both title roles.)

So you'd better be sure that your Basic Reading Skills are not lacking! How can you be sure? We've prepared a simple test. Just identify the subject of the following sentence: "Totally grape ape, should our snorkel rubadub the two step, moon for sure." Ready? The answer was: Chester A. Arthur.

First of all, if you got that wrong, SHAME ON YOU. But there is hope (amidst the SHAME!) The hope comes in the form of Reading Growth: Basic Skills which provides several helpful strategies for mastering reading, most of which make about as much sense as our example. Also, there is a frog, but it's not played by Sam Worthington. He is, however, much more successful at masking his Australian accent.

Mike, Kevin and Bill identify the subject of this sentence as hilarity! And then feel deep SHAME because it turns out it was actually Chester A. Arthur again...
