I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 February 2020 - 08:47 PM)

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 05:38 PM)

@  Telly : (21 February 2020 - 02:31 PM)

harlock is on tubi as well. not dubbed though :(

@  Rhinox42 : (21 February 2020 - 01:19 PM)

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 February 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Oh boy, here we go.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

Ask bing. It'll be a FAR more effective answer.

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Google, how do I get those durned kids off my lawn?

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Please ignore.  Old man here apparently doesn't know the difference between the "Search" field and the "Shoutbox" field.

 

Also doesn't know how to delete from the shoutbox

@  Paladin : (16 February 2020 - 07:20 PM)

business is booming.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 February 2020 - 06:49 PM)

SAmsung has you covered. Exploding phones.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Modern problems require modern solutions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

I'm okay with a new cast. Replacing Joel wasn't the end of the world.

 

No, but replacing the bots (well Crow) was pretty much when I stopped watching the first time.

So Mike and Trace are definitely out.

This isn't (if funded) going to be "classic" MST3K.

If you know that and still want to donate more power to you but I want more "classic" MST3K and this is not it.

I'm going to require disappointing preview footage in the future to even think about hatin' on MST3K coming back, whether it's the entire old cast or new people. Writing standards are a lot more important to me than the cast. If someone can't come back I can only assume it wasn't feasible for this project. I'll give this the benefit of the doubt.

Is there a Rift between Joel and Mike and others?

 

I mean Joel and some of the others did Cinematic Titanic while the others were doing Rifftrax, but was it a THING, or just people doing different stuff?

 

Something neat in the launch video, Joel was rally doing a bunch of stuff like his xbox idea, playing with what a Video is and can be.

Source? Not that I don't believe you, but have either Mike or Trace said anything on Twitter? I'd think that if this gets off the ground, Mike, Kevin & Bill might be on board for writing, as well as offering web hosting stuff.

I mean, since this gets into their turf, it'd be better to be on board, rather than just have competition.

My understanding was they just had different ideas. Mike I believe was originally hired to do riff commentaries on DVDs for stuff like Plan Nine From Outer Space, with RiffTrax emerging out of that and bringing in the folks he'd work closely with. Joel wanted to go back to it too but had lost the rights to Jim Mallon who basically only saw the bots as the only marketable element. Hence Cinematic Titanic where the cast watch the movie on raised platforms.

Mike Nelson and Bill Corbett both said on Twitter that they're not involved.  Rifftrax put up a message on Facebook saying they're not involved, but they're happy to support.  I haven't seen anything from Kevin Murphy specifically.  I don't think any of that necessarily means they refuse to participate if asked.

 

It occurs to me that it would be fun if Joel, driven mad by his years of isolation, is now the guy sending bad movies to a new person on the Satellite of Love.

Pretty sure there's no bad blood between Mike and Joel.  Like none.  It's just Joel wants to bring back his baby in some fashion and wants to do Kickstarter after how successful other Kickstarters are.

Joel put up a lengthy but satisfying FAQ:  http://bit.ly/mst3k-update2  (I can't verify that link because bit.ly is blocked at work.)
