OK, I'll be handling this one a little differently than some of the other TV series I've re-watched. I don't own every episode of this, and what I do own isn't in broadcast order, so I'll be watching them as I find them, and updating this initial post as to where they sit in the show's history.

Show 908: "The Touch of Satan", first broadcast 7/11/1998

The Film: From 1971,  this is a bland little picture about a man traveling across country who encounters a witch. Neither remarkably good or remarkably bad. 

The Host Segments:  Crow and Servo are wassailing in July.  Pearl's gone on vacation and left Bobo and Observer with a babysitter named Steffie (Beez McKeever).  Mike tries walnut ranching. He doesn't get far. Crow thinks that he's a witch. Servo's grandma tries to kill Mike. Crow accidentally sells his soul to Stan, instead of Satan.  Steffie reads "Green Eggs and Ham" to Bobo and Observer.  

Rating:  An OK episode, but not especially memorable.

Show 212: "Godzilla vs. Megalon", first broadcast 1/19/1991

The Film: Godzilla and his robot buddy Jet Jaguar battle giant cockroach Megalon and his space buddy, Gigan the Cyberchicken. From 1973, this is arguably the silliest Godzilla film, enjoyable as long as you're in the right frame of mind.

The  Host Segments:  Jole and the Bots imitate a TV news magazine. Crow wants to know what pain is.  Joel, the Bots and the Mads all invent easy Halloween costumes.  Crow and Servo create monster drawings to cover up the fact that they were looking at naughty pictures. They get a little too into it.  "Rex Dart, Eskimo Spy!"  Crow and Servo do a skit mocking Orville Redenbacher. It gets pretty dark.  Joel gives Crow and Servo new arms.  They sing their version of the Jet Jaguar song.  Frank can't handle losing at Super Mario Brothers.

Favorite Lines:

  • "Sounds like your monster reads Frost." "Yeah, and he sprays it like icy death from his bloody stumps!"
  • "He's got a foreign object!" He is a foreign object!"

Rating: A pretty good episode.The film ledns itself to good riffing, and the host segments are amusing,too.

Lots of early 70s films about witchcraft and devils. Most of them seemed to have been made by people trying to see how boring they could be. Many were about a guy finding out his wife or girlfriend was a witch or resembled a long dead one. And then...he doesn't really do all that much with that information except whine and insist it can't be true.

I remeber the MST3K version of Godzilla vs. Megalon very well. for a time, it was the only version I had.

  The occult was very big in the late 60's to mid 70's.

Which should have led to better movies about the subject. I've been looking for good horror films from that time period and there aren't that many of them. The Dr. Strange TV movie comes out looking pretty good when you compare it to things like Curse of the Headless Horseman and To The Devil A Daughter.

Show 618: "High School Big Shot", first broadcast 12/10/1994

The Short:  "Out of This World" (1954) features an angel and a devil vying to control the soul of a wholesale bread salesman, and it's just about as goofy as that premise suggests. That said, it's perfect MST3K fodder, and the gang has a lot of fun with it.

The Film:  From 1959, this film is the story of a high school outcast who stages a heist to impress a money-hungry girl, and almost everyone dies.  In the episode guide,  Frank Conniff described it as one of the most depressing films they ever did.  Look for Stanley Adams as a safe-cracker.

The Host Segments:  Mike has a headache, and the Bots make as much noise as they can.  It's science time, as Frank clones a baby dinosaur which attacks Doctor F, and Crow feeds Servo a formula that makes him large and stupid.  Mike and the Bots present their specialty breads. Crow and Servo throw an omelet at Mike. He critiques their technique.  Crow and Servo destroy themselves trying to break into Gypsy's diary.  Later, they have a squirt gun fight while Doctor F puts the dinosaur down Frank's pants.

Rating:  Another so-so episode.  The short is amusing, but the film is not. The host segments are OK, but nothing special.

Show 213: "Godzilla vs. The Sea Monster", first broadcast 2/2/1991

The Film:  Godzilla battles a giant prawn and world communism.  Good stuff!

The Host Segments:  Joel reads "The Velveteen Rabbit" to Crow and Servo. Joel invents the Mind-Controlled Guitar.  The Mads invent Squeeze Toy Guitars. Joel and the Bots sing the "Godzilla Genealogy Bop". Joel obsessively build model buildings out of "found objects". The Bots destroy them.  Crow and Servo imitate the Twin Fairies, prompting a visit from Mothra (Mike Nelson).  Joel and the Bots discus famous movie lines that were never said. Then they show "Cool Thing" drawings sent in by viewers.

Rating:  A good episode.  A favorite old movie, some good riffs and some good host segments.

Show 301: "Cave Dwellers", first broadcast 6/1/1991

The Film: From 1984, this is a badly-made eminently forgettable Conan knock-off.  

The Host Segments: Joel and the Bots discuss new names they'd take.  Joel invents a literal Smoking Jacket.  The Mads invent Robotic Arm Wrestling.  Joel and the Botss dress as characters from the film, and then cavort clownishly. Joel explains why things in these kinds of movies are given fancy names.  Later he discusses Foley effects.  Joel and the Bots complain about the movie.

Rating: another so-so episode.

Show 1001: "Soultaker", first broadcast 4/11/1999

The Film:  From 1990, this seems to be a vanity project for Vivian Schilling, who wrote and starred in it.  A group of friends fail to die in an accident as they were scheduled to, and a Soultaker (Joe Estevez) is tasked to retrieve their souls.  This is one dog of a movie.

The Host Segments:  Crow and Servo fail to understand the concept of the wet tee-shirt contest. There is an unexpected delay going to commercial.  Outside, a ship hovers near the SOL.  The SOL's signal is interrupted by an image of Martin Van Buren and a brief, obscured glimpse of a familiar face.  The SOL is falling apart, and even Gypsy is affected.  Pearl, Bobo and Observer are unconcerned.  Mike and the Bots detect the unknown ship.Mike is not doing well as a leader. The SOL is crashing, and a Soultaker in Castle Forrester pursuing Bobo. The Soultaker is revealed to be TV's Frank! (He left Second Banana Heaven because Pat Buttram had it in for him.) The unknown ship saves the SOL with a tractor beam. Its pilot turns out to be Joel Robinson! Joel repairs the SOL. Frank needs Joel's soul, when ever it's convenient. Joel refuses to rescue Mike and the Bots, but gives Mike a pep talk before leaving.  Bob offer Frank his soul, instead. The two hit it off.

Rating: A fun episode.  The film is crap, but it's great fun the see Frank and Joel again, and to see Mike and Joel together, however briefly.  

Show 614:  "San Francisco International", first broadcast 11/19/1994

The Film: This is a TV pilot from 1970.  Pernell Roberts, Clu Gulager, Tab Hunter, VanJohnson and David Hartman all work at an airport where an improbably convoluted heist is going on.  Fun Fact: Once you've seen "Airplane!", it becomes extremely difficult to take "trouble at an airport" movies seriously.

The Host Segments:  Mike moderates a bizarre political debate between Crow and Servo.  The Mads are doing construction work in Deep 13. Mike teaches Crow and Servo the classic board gag, hurting them badly.  Mike imitates Urkel. Crow, Servo, Gypsy, Frank, Forrester, Jan in the Pan and Santa Claus all find it endlessly hilarious. Mike imitates Urkel some more.  Huggy Bear, Rooster and Pitch also find it endlessly hilarious.   Mike gives us even more of his Urkel impersonation. Nuveena finds it endlessly hilarious. Torgo is not an Urkel fan, and the joke dies a quick and painful death.  Crow thinks David Hartman is an extraordinarily ugly man.  Dr. F's ears keep getting larger for some reason.

Rating: A better episode than it deserves to be. The movie was so-so, and devoting three host segments to Mike's Urkel impersonation was an "interesting" choice.  I did enjoy seeing all the various visitor characters again, though.

Show 604: "Zombie Nightmare", first broadcast 11/24/1991 (The finale of 1994's Turkey Day Marathon")

The Film:  From 1986, this  features Tia Carrere as a voodoo priestess and Adam West as an evil police chief who has offended her. Poor Adam, I hope he got paid well.

The Host Segments: Crow and Servo act as Mike's bodyguards, hurting him badly.  Frank and Forrester have gotten into voodoo. Mike and the Bots give Cokie Roberts a voodoo neck rub.  Servo does a hit and run on Crow.  Crow and Servo are in a hot tub, and are surprised by Mike, who has apparently been spearfishing. Servo and Mike dress up as Batman and Robin for a screenplay that Crow has forgotten.  Mike has Crow ans Serov write letters to Adam West. Gypsy reads a poem.  Frank has zombified Doctor F.

Rating:  A so-so episode. Some amusing bits.
