Definitely agree about Trace being better both as Crow and in his host-segment role, but then I do tend to slightly prefer Crow over Tom Servo also anyway, although Tom is
great too.
As for Mary Jo, she was all right in small doses, and when she was appearing sporadically as Dr. Forrester's mother, but yeah, they never should've really let her take over instead of Trace and Frank.
Just one of the reasons why I don't like the couple later seasons as much.

So, I'm watching my new 20th Anniversary Set, and I can't help but feel a little disappointed.  Maybe it's because half of them are from the Bill Corbett, or "AntiBeaulieu," era.  Maybe it's because they've got previews for other shit before the menu.  Also, they screwed up the chapters so host segments are no longer in own chapters.

At least Werewolf is as good as Space Mutiny, but I can't help but feel there are better episodes than Future War

Indeed, most definitely the inferior epoch.

@DrT, Nurdy, etc.: Sine told me the other day that Clonus, which I've never seen, has a heap of Milwaukee references in it. Now I must watch it sometime. Why was I not informed of this?

I'd not heard that about Clonus, then again I don't know how many Milwaukee references I'd catch.  I'm off to YouTube, I suppose.

Also, the United Servo Academy Men's Chorus Hymn from "The Starfighters" is double-plus awesome.  That movie is terrible though.  Unwatchable, really.  It doesn't even have a plot.  Manos had a plot.  Monster a-Go-Go had several fragments of plots.  The Starfighters has nothing.  It's like a sponsored film for the Air Force.

Anyways... the clones figure out there's a whole world outside of where they are because one of them finds an old can of milwaukee beer.

I must say that I've actually used that term - a useful substitute instead of merely 'poop' or 'poopie'.

'Milwaukee beer', priceless...

I recently subjected Kloudes to the horror that is Manos, and she was completely unfazed by the abysmalness of the movie. She wanted to watch it again.  I'm kind of scared now...

Saw a few episodes I had never seen; 'Pod People' is a new favorite of mine, which is saying something because it's a Joel episode and I almost always prefer Mike.  The host segment where they imitate Trumpy's wacky antics is priceless. Also saw "The Incredibly Strange Creatures..." A movie that is 90% bad cabaret and roller coaster footage, but it worth it for HELPING CHILDREN THROUGH RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT.

Also still gotta say I'm enjoying Rifftrax.  Just watched the new Indiana Jones and it was hilarious.

Pod People always was one of my favorites.. "Trumpy, you can do magic things!"  The deliciously cheesy band alone would probably render it worth it.  In any case, it definitely showcases a lot of what makes this show what it was.     Also, I think they spent the entire budget of 'The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-up Zombies Then Went on a Roller Coaster and Stumbled Around on a Beach' on the title.

Ortega, heh.

I don't know, I'm pretty happy with my version. Maybe it's just because I prefer the later seasons, I don't know. At least the promotions are only mandatory on the first DVD. I would have liked to see Hobgoblins or the Legend of Boggy Creek II or Invasion of the Neptune Man or Puma Man or Squirm as well. CUT THE SLACK, DVD EDITORS. mad

I just saw Outlaw for the first time a few days ago and I'm suprised I didn't see it earlier considering how good it was.

Incidentally, does anybody else think the voice for Disembaudio is really jarring? It sounds like they process it through a sand belt before they put it on the track! And the way it interupts the proceedings without warning? Scary. eek

"My name is Pleasence and I am funky."
yeesh, what a terrible superhero he was. he couldn't even succeed at kicking a couple of minions' asses, he needed his aztec sidekick to do most of the work!

i love the horrible flying scenes in that movie, though, especially because pumas have the power of flight and all.

i'd have to say that my favorite episode is either THE AMAZING COLOSSAL MAN or fugitive alien (mostly for the characters - ken, the main character who's basically really strong and... uh.... that's it, ththe captain, who's apparently bipolar, that girl who has an unrequited crush on everyone, then there's rocky, who apparently is so skeptical of ken the alien that he tries to run him over with a forklift, dan the pilot who i only remember because he's a japanese man with disco hair and gets tortured for some reason, then there's the crewmember who looks like a japanese adam sandler, and there are also a couple of redshirtswho don't even die! what the hell! also there are at least 2 more people named ken who all appear in the same scene shouting "KEN!!!!")

anyone know of a place where i can buy recorded MST3K episodes? i used to know this guy through ebay who would sell DVDs at $3 an episode, but he's stopped selling them.

I'd not heard that about Clonus, then again I don't know how many Milwaukee references I'd catch.  I'm off to YouTube, I suppose.

yeah, wasn't the only stuff that happened in the starfighters refueling, a plane crashed in a storm and they had to take off in a goofy helicopter to look for the pilot (and this new conflict was started and resolved within 5 minutes, and the crash was never shown), and robert dornan's creepy dad calling him all the time? definitely the worst movie ever.

I don't know.  It was so forgettable, I've forgotten what didn't happen.  War of the Colossal Beast is a good one too.  Better than Amazing Colossal Man in my opinion.

I just saw Outlaw for the first time a few days ago too.  Awesome.

Fugitive Alien is a classic, one of the best redubbed Japanese Films of the Seventies. Even better than the Godzilla ones which never really grab me for some reason.

What I love about Outlaw is sometimes you can actually see Palance constantly regretting being in the flop.

Heh, anyone remember the one which co-starred James Earl Jones in? Intercity something something?

You mean City Limits, I think that was it?  The one with Kim Cattrall and some guy who gets killed by a desk.

I really want to watch some ones that I haven't seen for such a long time...  like, say, San Francisco International, Warrior of the Lost World, I don't know.. the Coleman Francis
ones... and that secret-agent one with the Lovejoy guy.  Also that other secret agent one, the James Bond ripoff with Sean Connery's brother.

Oh and I figured out that I had seen most of Clonus.

(I only remembered the lobotimized clone at the end).                                (Ooh, Drama).

Oh, and I forgot to say the way we knew that Trash was a badass was because he was riding his motorcycle inside. Up and down stairs.
And the two secret-agent ones are called Code Name: Diamond Head and Operation Double 007.
Wow, subtle.
Now I just for some reason started watching The Giant Gila Monster, another one I haven't seen in a long time.

Outlaw of Gor is a very amusing one, even taking it at face value. It's based on an obscenely misogynistic book series with a dedicated group of obsessives who actually try to live the lifestyle described! Good fun! I am also barely even kidding when I say that I would watch Operation Double 007 without commentary. That movie rocks all kind of Rosa Klebbs!

Incidentally, when they occasionally do the "Does this bug you? Huh? Does this bug you? I'm not touching you!" riff, what are they specifically referring to? A Christmas Story? Our Gang? IT. IS. KILLING. ME. WITH.

It turns out Bill Corbett's pretty funny.  Why does he play Crow so terribly?  Brain Guy was terrible too.  Shout Factory is also on my shit list for screwing up the 20th AE DVDs

This thread takes me back. Bill Corbett's Crow was cool, once he got the hang of puppeteering. (Those first few episodes were rough! It looked like poor Crow had had a stroke or something.)

Brain Guy was weak, though, I'll agree. When the show moved to the Scifi channel and they had that "chase through the galaxy" storyline, I thought things were pretty cool. But then they settled into the castle and I realized "dang, this ape/brain guy/Pearl setup sucks". The mad scientists were way better.

I was reflecting on the Bill Corbett as Crow thing while mowing the lawn during the time when I should have been sleeping.  Here's how my problem boils down.  First, and I don't blame Bill for this, is that the character changed when the show was picked up by SciFi.  I don't doubt his obnoxiously frequent confusion about who or what he was and his instructional segments were derived from a note from SciFi execs that said, "Increase Crow's wackiness by at least 25%.  Consider adding terribly annoying quirk, maybe two."  Second, Trace Beaulieu's emotional range was much more varied than Bill Corbett's.  Bill's Crow had two gears, annoyed and angrily annoyed, with occasional sparks of something else.   The same could be said about Weinstein as Servo.  That banner story does kick ass though.

Completely agree.  I know I've said this before, but the show just really lost something to me once it moved to the Sci-Fi channel.
Pearl became obnoxious, I never got into the ape/Brain Guy storyline and the loss of Dr. Forrester was a huge blow.

It kind of became unnecessarily labored and convoluted, in my view.

Bill's Crow had two gears, annoyed and angrily annoyed, with occasional sparks of something else.

Reminds me somehowly of "dull surprise".


Oh, except for there weren't really any sparks of 'something else'.

Well, and I'm posting this when I probably should be sleeping, so there you go.
