Heeeey, you're watching without us! :igmeou:

The availability of episodes on YouTube is sporadic. They occasionally get flagged, and after a little while pop up again. There's a reason many episodes have "Keep Circulating the Tapes" in the credits; this is the kind of show that people hold the rights to but won't ever distribute.

The Girl In Gold Boots - so awful...

Ooooh! Oooh! Mighty Jack!

Parts The Clonus Horror... omg

Werewolf! (pronounced wurwulff)

I can't wait for the new season - who's carrying it? When does it start?

Following up..

Looks like Netflix will be carrying it (yay!) which means the whole season will be released at once. Awesome.

Also, Elliot Kalan has been hired as head writer, which is freaking awesome. He's a former Daily Show with Jon Stewart head writer and a full-blown movie buff. If you haven't already check out the "The Flophouse", a bad movie podcast he's been doing (for about 8 years).

Release date is still the "not too distant future".

Rumor was that Patton Oswalt and Felicia Day were also involved somehow?
One time, back in 'nam, Sudo was set upon by an entire squadron of charlies. He challenged them all to a game of Pictionary, which he won resoundingly. The charlies were forced to not only surrender the skirmish, but also their world-famous chili recipe, which Sudo sold to Texas for a hefty profit. Sudo is a master of diplomacy.

I went to this party at comic con years ago where this guy was possibly as smug as possible about cancellation the original MS3K. Like... I get it had to be done because ratings weren't good or whatever, but of all places to crow about it...

If I remember the controversy at the time, it wasn't that the ratings were bad, it was that networks didn't like the 90 minute format, since it chews up so much of the schedule for one show. Comedy Central was basically launched off the back of MST3K (The Comedy Network was a small regional network at the time that expanded because people kept calling their cable providers to demand "that network that has MST3K" on it), they dumped it because they didn't like the 90 minute format anymore, Sci-Fi picked it up, then dumped it after 3 seasons for basically the same reason.

A friend made me watch this.

It was one of the worst things I have ever done. Even the riffs could not make it bearable.

I've been watching the new shows, and I'm really enjoying it. Beast of Hollow Mountain probably my favorite so far.

Season 12 is set to drop on Thanksgiving. Because watching MST3K marathons on Thanksgiving is awesome.

Nice. 6 new episodes!

Including Mac and Me! Wow. I've seen one of the bad movies before MST3K riffed it. I'm all growed up.

I hope they get enough for 12 episodes and a new full run.

Patton Oswalt is a good comedian so I might check this out
