One of my favorite TV shows of all time.

Aw man, I'm not ashamed to say I wept when that show went off the air.
I have several 'blooper' videos from that show. So funny.

Yeah, me too. I've been trying to collect a bunch of their shows. I bought a couple of their DVD sets, and a guy at work recorded a ton of their shows going all the way back to season 1 on VHS. He encoded a lot of them to avi files for me, but he really screwed up the encoding, most of them aren't in sync and the screen size is too small. I tried to talk him into loaning me his VHS tapes so I could encode them myself but he has refused claiming that they are too fragile. Which is probably true, and all the more reason to let me digitize them for him, but I can't talk him into it, the prick!

Did you know that the three main guys have gotten back together recently and kind of resurrected the concept? They call themselves The Film Crew. It's basically the same thing as MST3K except with no robots. The concept now is they view old crappy movies and provide a commentary track at the behest of a wealthy benefactor who believes all old movies should have commentary tracks. He sends them films to provide a commentary track for. I just watched one over the weekend called "Hollywood After Dark", probably one of the worst movies I've ever seen. It's an old B&W movie from the early sixties that features a young Rue McClanahan playing the role of a stripper. It is absolutely hilarious! It wasn't long into the movie before I didn't even notice the robot silhouettes weren't on screen. I've definitely got to find more of these! As far as I know there are at least 3 more by The Film Crew, and maybe more. Apparently these are released straight to DVD. The one I watched was released in 2005.

The Film Crew. For MST3K fans, highly recommended!

Ok, I got off my lazy ass and provided a link...

:mrgreen: Thanks for getting off your ass.
Nope, I didn't know about them getting back together. Actually, I didn't like the non-movie commentary parts of the show. Just the things they said to the screen. When I 1st saw them they were commenting on the movie The Mole People and I was annoyed because I wanted to see the movie then I stopped and listen and it was pretty funny. Gonna go check out the link...

Yes, one of the DVD collections I bought has an entire disk of all shorts. I haven't watched it for quite a while but I remember one in particular about Home Economics from some college in Iowa - just roll on the floor funny! There's no doubt about it, those guys providing commentary are the only possible way one could sit through some of those movies. That Hollywood After Dark was so awful! Yet they make it so funny!

And I agree, it is easy to watch their shows more than once. With all of the unfunny crap running and re-running on Comedy Central these days, they really should consider either bringing it back, or at least re-running the entire old series. I don't have the information handy, but I believe if you go all the way back to the beginning with Joel Hodgson, there must be hundreds of episodes. Sure would beat the hell out of re-runs of crappy comedians with every other word beeped out.

I adore MST3K!

jeee-on stuart mill, of his own free will, was a philosopher

john stewart had a show called short attention span theater on comedy central, then two on mtv; the john stewart show, and you wrote it, you watch it. in 1999, he became the host of the daily show. but no, he wasn't the host of talk soup...maybe he dropped by as a guest, but not the host.

talk soup hosts:
greg kinnear (1991-1995)
john henson (1995-1999)
hal sparks (1999-2000)
aisha tyler (2001-2002)

the soup:
joel mchale (2004-present)

from 2002-2004, many celebrity guests hosts, but no john stewart as far as i could see.



thanks wikipedia!

yeah, i'm being a smart ass.........

I would like to hear horns again in rock music.
If classical music can remain the same for centries, why can't the Motown sound, the Phil Spector "wall of sound" or the soulful sound of Atlantic records have a resurgence?
Maybe in rare instances young people try to incorporate the early sound, but it is rare these days. I would like to hear the young artists revert to the earlier sounds with updated songs.

Classical music actually changed a lot over the centuries.

Beards.

Whats the deal with the new style of facial hair where it looks like someone drew a line with a pencil around where a beard should be. We went from pencil thin mustache to pencil thin beard? I call it a douche bag beard. If anyone out there reading this has a douche bag beard....kill yourself
