As many of you remember, MST3K was a cult comedy show, that started on Comedy Central and found itself on the Sci fi channel in it's later seasons

It features a man and his robot sidekicks who are trapped on a satellite in space and forced to watch a selection of terrible movies, especially (but not limited to) those of the science fiction genre. The premise of the show is that the man and his robots make a running commentary on the film, making fun of its flaws and wisecracking their way through the film in the style of a movie theater peanut gallery. Series creator Hodgson originally played the stranded man, Joel Robinson. When he left in 1993, series head writer Michael J. Nelson replaced him as new B-movie victim Mike Nelson, and continued in the role for the rest of the show's run.

Are there any fans here?
What do you remember about it?
if so, what did you like/love about it?
and do you prefer the Joel Hodgson or Mike Nelson years?
Who was your favorite of the robots, and "The Mads"?

I loved loved loved that show. I basically grew up on it XD.
The movies where always funny, but I really liked the short clips, one of my favs being the Mr B Natural one ("Bad touch").
Except I think it is the reason why I can't watch a movie with my mouth shut anymore, I feel like it's only normal to make comments about movies while they are playing. :)

Aaand I think I liked Joel more. Mike was okay, but he seemed to have that "I wish I was cool" act going for him. Joel was just, Joel. Joel kinda reminded me of Joe Jack Talcum of the Dead Milkmen. You know that sort of almost homely feel. :D

I miss that show

IMO, Best show EVER!

My personal FAV was the Mike Era but I especially love the shorts from any era.
I still watch them on several of the other movie sites.

Fav ep.... hard to say as I have several I never get tired of:
Horror at Party Beach
Mitchell
Catalina Caper
Merlin's Shop of Mystical Wonder
....
Too many to choose from.

Thank god I'm not the only one. A shitty movie with shitty jokes is just a shitty waste of time.

However, on the rare occasions that they're "on" they can be hysterical. I've only seen them genuinley on twice... once when they were covering the 1996 oscar nominations and the other when they did the movie "Touch of Satan." Both times I think my side hurt I was laughing so hard.

Personally, give me a bottle of whiskey and some bad sci-fi movies and i'm 1000x as funny as those guys and i'm doing it all without fucking muppets.

EDIT - my bad, I forgot about Diabolik... they rocked in that one. But the subject matter was pure gold in intself, they'd have had to try to fuck that one up.
