Oh what great memories I have of MST! Joel is a living genius.


#3

This might be the second kickstarter I support…


#4

Oh fuck yes. I’m in


#5

I have too many good memories of watching MST3K (and yes, passing around actual videotapes) to not be in. Whether this Kickstarter succeeds or fails (and whether a new MST3K catches on or not), Joel is a genius and deserves the chance.

I went to a live Rifftrax show of The House on Haunted Hill and it was fun but I still missed Joel and the 'bots. Yeah, I’m in.

Seeing Rifftrax live made me realize one of the benefits of watching MST3K at home. There were some jokes I missed because the audience around me was laughing so hard. Yeah, it was great we were all enjoying it but I couldn’t record and rewind the live action.

What’s the stretch goal to have Mike be the host? ducks


#8

Hrm. I’d say being able to try and kill you with a forklift?


#9

Klaus, that you?


#10

The staying power of this program after all these years is rather staggering.


#11

Nah. Just call me Rocky?


#12

assuming he can raise an eye-popping $2,000,000

Good lord, and it’s already almost 1/4 of the way there. Looks like there’s just a little bit of a demand there.


#13

Puma? Puma? Puma!


#14

Favorite MST3K quote:

Joel (or was it Mike?): And what do you want for Christmas, Crow?

Crow: I want to decide who lives and who dies.

Joel: Ooohhh… I dunno, Crow.

The amazing thing is that the average backer is in for over $100! I know zero about demographics – but it sounds like MST3K appeals to a damn good demographic, at least from the disposable-income angle.


#17

This. Joel left MST3K and Mike took it farther and more successful than Joel’s deadpan snooze fest ever could. Long live rifftrax.


#18

That would be Joel. And no surprise its your favorite.


#19

How many more Mitchell movies are there?


#20

Dang it, why don’t I have any monies to giiiiiive?!?
