"Here's a little---whatever. A little thing. A disclosure. An insight. Revisionism---I've always been fascinated by it. By the idea of a writer going back and altering things. Make no mistake: an edit is a profoundly aggressive act. As Froid once said, we grieve for the murdered word. If you want to get the measure of an author, don't look at what they've left on the page.... look at what they've taken away." -- Rung (MTMTE #28)

Our plans for 2020 were as amazing as Optimus Prime. But then 2020 came like Hot Rod.

Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

Hey you, get ready, get on your feet. Get into gear and hit the street.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 07:37 AM)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

@  Bass X0 : (04 July 2020 - 02:56 PM)

"If I had sarcasm-powered legs, I'd do a happy dance...!"

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 July 2020 - 02:39 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

Half way in. So far, same general opinion as last season. The writers who think website references and internet memes should be in the scripts need to go.

Finished the first episode and got through about half the second before my wife got too tired to continue. Mac & me was great. I'd say it might make it's way into my favorite episodes list. Atlantic Rim, so far, isn't nearly as strong.

Due to holiday busy only gotten through the first two.

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.

-ZacWilliam, looking forward to the rest but hating that there are only 6

They really need to be more consistent. Each episode feels like it's handled by a different team, so when you get bad riffs on a bad movie it's a chore to watch.

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.

To be honest, the show has never been consistent in any of its incarnations. Think it's just the nature of the show. They have to build off of whatever movie they are riffing and sometimes that works better than others.

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.

Boom. Sat through the whole gauntlet in a single sitting, because I'm just that hardcore.

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.

I know that they're trying to appeal to a wider audience and all, but I think that I would welcome some more "deep hurting" movies, compared to how most of the new stuff is low-budget '80's-and-on shlock.

Indeed. I'd love to see them tackle something like m"The Monolith Monsters", for example. Although I think either RiffTrax or cinematic Titanic took that one on at some point.

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.

There's a deep well of terrible animated movies that I would have loved to see the MST3k crew tackle, but they don't seem interested in taking on non-live action stuff.
