Well, it's probably part of the childhood of some or even most of the writers of this season....

I'm glad they cut WAY back on the use of the laser-cut wood props.

Mac & Me was... wow... y'know I remember knowing as a kid that it would be garbage from the comercials and avoiding it, but I really had no idea the level of garbage this was. However it was bad in crazy super entertaining ways that made it very fun to see mst3k'd and just laugh at in general with my son.
Atlantic Rim was the opposite kind of bad. It was just bargain basement uncreatively awful in every single way. Bad acting, terrible script, unlikeable characters, horrible effects. The mst'ing of it made it just passably watchable but the level of flat crap film made it all less enjoyable than ep 1.

Also, know you have Rick and Morty writers but don't hire them if they can't write original jokes. Reusing "SHOW ME WHAT YOU GOT!" was just obnoxious.

I made it through the gauntlet over the long weekend. Overall, I enjoyed it a lot. I'm happy to see this new incarnation trying new things, even if they aren't all entirely successful. The musical numbers were pretty great. The host segments in general seemed funnier to me than average.
I think it was during Killer Fish that Gypsy descended to retrieve the thing. Her mouth moved but there was no joke. That seemed like an egregious error.
M. Waverly and Gwoler started showing up in the theater with Gypsy. I never did figure out what they were doing. The silhouettes are often lost against the darkness of the movie.
A problem I've always had with MST is that I have trouble sitting through certain movies, even if the riffing is on point. Killer Fish and Ator fit into that category for me.
I hope Netflix keeps the show going. Six episodes felt like a good number for a drop.

I didn't really have trouble getting through any of these films. After making through the 3 Coleman Francis films (The Beast of Yucca Flats, The Skydivers, and Red Zone Cuba), I can make it through pretty much anything MST3k throws at me.
Enjoyed it a lot, can't wait for more.

Still, there's plenty of deep hurting left out there that's probably easily accessible license-wise.

I can't be the only one on here who likes this show. For those who don't know, the show is about a guy who's shot into space and forced to watch bad movies. He builds robots who help him make fun of the movie.
It's a weird premise, but it works wonderfully.
For newcomers, I recommend the episodes Space Mutiny, Werewolf, Cave Dwellers and Pod People

What are your favorite episodes? Mine are Mitchell and Eegah.
Also, can I just say that it's an absolute CRIME MST3K never did Yor: The Hunter From the Future? I know Rifftrax recently did it, but it's not the same.
It even has Reb Brown from Space Mutiny in it.
