Now that the dust has settled, how does it feel to know that Mike Nelson is what made MST3K work?
>>117919530It really makes me sad to see Crow and Servo next to some unfunny eceleb
>>117919530Pretty good since I've been binge watching riff Trax on Amazon prime.
This angers the Joelfag
>>117920682Rifftrax is fucking awesome. Mike, Kevin and Bill have honed their riffing skills over the years, and they're even better now than they were in the MST3K days. Rifftrax Presents is generally pretty lame though.
The show worked before Mike came on just fine.Although the absolute best seasons were the ones where Mike was in the writing room and Joel was in front of the cameraeverything went to shit when bill corbett replaced trace
>>117919530some reddit cuck took over the show and is cringeworthy badi mean i wasnt expecting much but holy shit. every time he talks its like hes so desperate to be liked and get a chuckle out of his fellow cucks you can pratically hear him cream his pants and while the segments inbetween the movies have never been the star attraction of the show, never have i just fast forwarded through them like i do with these new seasonsfelicia day is just as annoying as the main villain, if not more so because she legit thinks she a superstar and oh so quirky
>>117920682I saw the Manos, Hands of Fate rifftrax in theaters and I think to this day it is unironically the funniest thing I've ever seen.
>>117920977You shut your whore mouth. Bill is great.
>>117921046As soon as I heard patton oswald was involved I knew it would be just terrible tbqh
Is their live show worth going to? It's coming to my town soon.
>>117919530I liked Joel but the movies they played back then usually weren't even good enough to shit on.
>>117921103which is weird. because as bad as he is. patton is probably the least cringey of the new cast,. you know its bad when oswald get to comparatively shine.
>>117921089Bill is shit and so is your crap taste. Trace will always be the only true crow.also reminder that he is a huge fag irl
>>117921141zoomer detected.I accused my parents and hanger 18 are pure kino, not even going to get into Fugitive alien or the gamera movies.
>>117921236fuck off, /pol/>>117920977I believe that each season only got better as time went on, barring the reboot. They mastered movie riffing by the time they ended season 10. About the only negative about the latter episodes is that most of the host segments are garbage.
>>117919530Saw him at a con. Pretty based>>117921046>not liking felicia dayWhy not admit you’re gay outright?
>>117919530i always say this and CANADIANS have the fucking gall to tell me they can't agree because of his "politics." ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?
>>117919530Couldn't agree more. I turned it off after 10 minutes. Why? Every joke was about tinder and shit like that. I just had an instant feeling they were missing the mark from go. Also let's not neglect Joel OP please
It was always obvious Mike was the best host. That’s why I’m a riff trap fan and don’t duck with that gay ass Jonah Ray / Patton Oswalt mst shit reboot

If I haven't listed it it's either shit or I haven't watched it or it's hit or miss like the night of too many shorts specials.
>>117919627Also they have A BLACK!!! voicing Tom Servo now AWWW HELL NAW!
>>117921236Bill and Kevin are typical liberal boomers but they're still funny.
>>117921131Yes. Although I would recommend watching a live version of their riffs to see if you'd like it.
>>117921089Bill was always the better crow imo, bummer he didn’t join til the sci-go channel years.
>>117921523well you are objectively wrong as season 4 was far better then season 5 (partially due to the whole host switchup but mostly due to several lackluster films especially in mikes first couple episodes) and season 9 was better then season 10 easily You are right about the host segments in later seasons sucking, mostly because Bill corbett was a shit replacement for Trace and bobo/brain guy were crap compared to the mads Mike had better movies, but nothing will ever beat the comfy mid season 2-season 4 of joel. He was just a better host tbqh, but not necessarily a better riffer >fuck off, /pol/>implying that shits not cringe to anyone with a brainyikes
>>117919530How was this something you thought I needed to deduce 20 years later? He was head writer during the best run and star through more than half the best-of episodes. And it wasn't just he made more episodes. Joel was a sleepy-eyed, stoned prop comic. I mean, yeah, it was his idea, but his run was mumbling jokes and half-jokes, all while looking up and smiling at the camera. Pure happen-stance that the best episode happened while he was the face of the show, Mike wrote punchier, better jokes and him and two puppeteers (Trace, sorry brother, but you're sleepy too) delivered them with such timing and delivery that you literally do not notice that, on average, there was a joke every 11 seconds. Imagine that. I bet you didn't even know that. During Mike's tenure as the test subject, there was a joke every 11 seconds. On a show that ran two hours.The man was a literal machine and he pretty much singlehandedly kept the fucking thing afloat for more than half its run.Joel was a stoned mid-westerner and that shows now that he's bought the whole thing back and re-planted his flag in it.
>>117921780this reads so true and pure, how can anyone not accept its truth?
>>117921780>best episodeAnd just what would that be?
>>117921236I mean, it's pretty fucked up to play politics with thousands if not millions of peoples lives. It doesn't matter if you support the measure or not. She enabled Trump to establish concentration camps on the border.
>>117919530i can't even look at him without thinking of his pebis
>>117922012yeah fuck borders and shit. let free love reign. that'll fix everything. trust me.
>>117921959because I've watched every episode of mst3k a couple dozen times including ktma and the original lineup>Joel, Trace, and weinsteinwas actually the GOATMurphy has always been a try-hard and corbett is beyond pathetic
>>117922012>concentration campslmao just don't illegally enter someone elses country and you don't have to go. If only the jews had known!
This guy looks like an absolute insufferable twat and I havent bothered with the new stuff.Anyway, what's your favorite short?
>>117922210Spring Fever, Truck Farmer, or Hired
>>117922104This isn't a political thread.
>>117921572felicia no one whos not a dipshit or underage actually likes youyour not quirky or cute. and havent been for a long time.grow up
>>117922276All great choices. Always felt that Last Clear Chance was an underappreciated one.
>>117921046As bad as the Netflix season was Avalanche was pure gold.
>>117922282it's never political, is it? until it's conveniently political, that is.
>>117922395Also a strong choice. Another one I just thought of is X Marks the Spot
>>117921046The Gauntlet was a step in the right direction. Honestly it's nothing incredible, but I'd watch a Season 3 purely because 95% of Netflix originals are garbage, and 5% are background play worthy.
>>117922411i dont remember that episode but ill check it out>>117921627thanks for the list, appreciate ya
>>117921672This. Pretty sure Mike is a christcuck but he is also funny.
>>117922521>christcuckoh hey I think you dropped this
>>117922555Nice trips; sorry I don't believe dead guys come back to life
>>117922002im guessing hes talking about manos But the true patrician knows that the best episode is a tie between Catalina Caper and Final Sacrifice, with danger! death ray as an honorable mention
>>117922742Final Sacrifice is so fucking good. All the Rowsdower and Larry Csonka jokes are fantastic, them throw in Emperor Hauler Salasee, and we're in comedy heaven.>let's go pose for Maplethorpe
>>117922742For me it's not the movies; it's the shorts. Of which the best is probably Mr. B Natural.
>>117919627Know what? The guy they use for the live tours as Servo is way better than the normal guy. His voice and timing are so on point. And he sounds like Servo.
>>117922845its easily the best Mike episode.top 5s for each probably>final sacrifice>danger death ray>space mutiny>soultaker>pumamanJoel>catilina caper>manos>moon zero two>fugitive alien>any of the gamera movies or herculesHonestly joels is alot harder as season 3 went on for fucking ever and had nonstop 9/10s
>>117919530>how does it feel to know that Mike Nelson is what made MST3K work?Everyone has known for years that Mike, Kevin and Trace were the lifeblood of the show. Joel is a fucking hack. Jim Mallon at least knew what the fans wanted and knew how to keep a budget.
>>117919530Even Jonah is far better than Joel.
>>117923721Get that Reddit opinion out of here.
>>117922002How can you determine which episode is best in a series that relies mostly on referential humor?
>>117922210Money Talks and Progress Island U.S.A, a back to back masterpeice.Posture Pals & Appreciating Our Parents is another solid double feature.
>>117923058Mike top 5: Overdrawn at the Memory Bank, Time Chasers, Pumaman, Final Sacrifice, HobgoblinsJoel top 5: Cave Dwellers, Pod People, Manos, Eegah, Mitchell
>>117923010Plus he's not a forced diversity hire
