MST3K, Rifftrax, etc... CONTROVERSIAL TAKES ONLY

Posted 2 Months ago by Tek Shmansen

I'll start:

Dear Post-MST3K-Kevin,

Please shut up. Right. Now.

No. No singing.

Stop stealing focus. It's hacky. And really annoying most of the time. Just pretend you're Tom Servo again or something.

Ok so maybe this thread is a little overspecific. Or maybe this site's on fire. Jury's still out.

I haven't watched much Rifftrax, but I have watched the Netflix MST3K and I quite liked it. Dunno if I have any controversial takes about any of it though.

Yeah, I've really enjoyed it. And it's clearly a passion project for Jonah Rey, Patton Oswalt, and Felicia Day.

I did see Starship Troopers Rifftrax in theaters once. It was fine. Definitely like the new MST3K better, but had a good time. Except the theater programmed their projectors incorrectly so I walked in 15 minutes early and it was the feature itself instead of ad shows.

Ha! I went to that one too! Only one I've seen in theaters. What a funny coincidence.

And agreed. It was fine. My Rifftrax faves are A Talking Cat?!, Birdemic, and prolly like Abraxas. Tubi has a ton of them and old MST3Ks.

Oh that's funny! I'd never been to one before. Had a good time, but probably wouldn't necessarily go again. I think there was a channel on PlutoTV that was just *only* MST3K if I recall. I enjoyed revisiting those old ones. Not sure if it's still a thing, but it made Pluto TV worth downloading.

I never really liked the frame story, and when I used to binge watch MST3K on Youtube I would just skip over the scenes of them in the ship. Still, I think there's something more funny about MST3K than Rifftrax, can't really pinpoint it to any one thing.

But that being said, Rifftrax for The Room and Birdemic are top-fucking-notch.

JetsPresso- Yeah! Pluto also has a Dr Who channel 💙💜. I actually prefer Tubi bc they seem to have what I've dubbed "considerate commercials", meaning the volume actually goes down a skosh during commercials and there's usually a timer/etc. Pluto and others blast that volume and I get all bitchy about it lol.

Oh hi Agis (lulz). Yes. It's rare that I want to watch the interim sketches. I get in different moods, so different eras and configurations of the frame work for me at different times. I think the throughline is that I like both crisp delivery of well-written jokes AND good, sharp improv.
