This dude ranks "Beast of Yucca Flats" near the bottom, which exposes the fatal flaw in his methodology because
(A) Mike and the 'Bots nail the riffing, and there's two great shorts attached too
and
(B) the movie is so bad that it actually disappears into a singularity of badness and comes out the other end as—well, not good, of course, but baffling and fascinating in an almost Herzogian way.

I plan to get into some MST3K watching when they release all the old shows. I was a very occasional viewer so I don't have much memory of specific episodes.

Would you guys say that this is a good guide to get started? Say, take the top ten on this list as my starting point?

Wouldn't, in this specific case, be by definition, that "the worst" is "the best"?
posted by sammyo at 1:08 PM on March 15


At one point I got a torrent of all the MST3K episodes and downloaded them all and burned them to plastic disk storage and so i have them all and can watch them at any time.

I will say, The Deadly Bees probably has made me laugh more than any other episode. I can't explain way, but that's how it is.

Manos is actually kind of difficult to watch. It's impressive in how bad it is, but the movie itself is pretty boring and that leaves them without a lot to work with/riff on, because there are long stretches of time where nothing is happening. It gives rise to that great Servo moment where he makes up a conversation during that nearly endless driving scene near the end of the movie, but that's pretty much it.

A movie that's both stupid and has more going on (e.g., Space Mutiny) is generally better material.

The vast majority of the classic episodes have already been released on DVD (first through Rhino, then through Shout! Factory), with an excellent percentage of those available on streaming. Sadly, there are a handful of a dozen or so episodes which may never get an "official" DVD/streaming release, because the rights-holders are humorless dickweeds.

The 20 that are up now on Netflix are good for an intial taster, and from there I strongly suggest checking out either the official Youtube channel or the Shout! Factory TV site/app; there were roughly 50-60 episodes up for free streaming the last time I checked.

I had to RTFA to find out what 'best' and 'worst' might mean in this context.

I don't have a favorite episode, but my favorite experience was the one time my wife and I were watching 'The Beginning of the End'* and she realized she had seen that movie when she was a kid and it had totally freaked her out at the time... and apparently still did.

*"The film is generally recognized for its "atrocious" special effects and considered to be one of the most poorly written and acted science fiction motion pictures of the 1950s."- Wikipedia
That's really an accomplishment. Among the 'special effects', the giant grasshoppers attacking Chicago were played by real grasshoppers placed on a photo of Chicago.

I absolutely LOVE Red Zone Cuba (Night Train to Mundo Fine). I went and bought the full movie from some website, no MST3k added. The full movie has parts that make the whole movie make more sense, and I came away feeling like MST kind of cheated out by making fun ("WTH does THIS mean??") of an incomplete movie, chopped down for time sake. I wonder how many other films they did this with.

It's a terrible movie, but there's something so enormous about the whole thing. It's not just HAHA monster is a guy in a rubber suit! LOLZ

Why, WHY would adults try to make such an ambitiously-sized film with almost no budget? Was Coleman trying to evoke the dustbowl novels of John Steinbeck (I think so)? They actually have one of the actors play 2 parts, one of which is done by wearing a very fake beard and mustache and portraying Fidel Castro.

Then, they get back to the USA and try to get rich by stealing a tungsten mine (!!!).

Yes, it's terrible, but something about it resonates with me. It's much, much bigger than a bad movie. It's a catastrophe, but there's an earnestness to it. They weren't just cheaping out to fill time in a drive-in for teenagers to make out to.

> I came away feeling like MST kind of cheated out by making fun ("WTH does THIS mean??") of an incomplete movie, chopped down for time sake.

Before the era of on-demand video, editing full-length movies down to fit broadcast schedules was such an ordinary thing that MST3K wouldn't have stood out for doing it too. So they frequently made cuts for time, but the edits were to preserve riffability, not the movie's narrative, and I've long felt that the "huh what happened" gags were for calling themselves out rather than the movie's creators.

I have a weird affinity for the 70s movies: Riding with Death, Parts: the Clonus Horror, the Touch of Satan, Laserblast, Angels Revenge. I can't explain it, except that maybe it's because the bad movies of the time encapsulated all the worst parts of the 1970s. They're like a time capsule of awful.

Also the medieval fantasy movies. They're a special kind of awful.

UK Mefite here, I actually don't have an alternative favourite to offer,(nor a hole to pick, mores the pity!)I'm easy, well provided it's a Joel episode obvs. Amongst my closest RL friends, both long-standing and acquired-along-the-way are certain comedy touchstones. The Young Ones, Blackadder, Red Dwarf, Bottom ... you get the idea. You can drop a direct reference or a similar-styled joke on any of us and be fairly sure of a positive reaction. This is our language.

When I first got online it was weird to find popular Monty Python (good but so old!), Princess Bride (good, but so Disney/Ren Faire!) and Office Space (good, but howww many pieces of flair?). Oh, plus something called "must-three-kay" which turned out to be a US Saturday Morning Thing or maybe a spoof or perhaps a "riff" entirely separate from the product. Hrm! Je ne comprends pas!

Fast forward to 2015 and I'm looking for something different to consume media-wise. I'm slightly more open-minded than I used to be ("Whaaa? You mean The Germans had a New Wave as Welle?") but still pretty narrow in a lot of ways ("I wonder what people I like and/or people like me would have enjoyed back in the day?"). I checked out posts from JHarris's already extant Fanfare group for Mystery Science Theatre 3000 and enjoyed what I found. Something that helped soften the culture-shock blow was the fact that commenter(s) mentioned references were sometimes surprisingly regional rather than national. In any case I enjoyed what I watched (even if I did start with Manos because of name recognition, d'oh!).

I've watched a solid double-handful of MST3K episodes along with/after Fanfare plus a more random smattering courtesy of YouTube. That's been my eventual way in and that's where I've found the fun in them. Going back to my original observation, I can 't ever imagine them becoming a conceptual currency between myself and my friends, but there'd several of us who'd happily build upon them at this stage in life.

My group of friends in college would regularly attempt the four page version of the MST3K drinking game, but I don't think we ever finished a movie before the staggering drunkenness settled in and people starting drifting off.

Meanwhile, my roommatedid roughly two things in his six years of college: meticulously plot out his course schedule for the next term (while not going to any classes each term) and making MST3K mixtapes with cabled together VCRs. His crowning achievement was a nearly two hour long collection of the best shorts and the little skits around commercials. It was painfully funny, seriously, actual pain would settle in after laughing for 30 minutes straight.

And the best of all shorts is Why Study Industrial Arts because you're bad at math, closely followed by Are You Ready For Marriage First Federal Church, member FDIC/ He's a sorcerooorrrooorr, and The Home Economics Story. Here Comes the Circus and Mr. B are good, but not in my top 3.

Yes, I am here. First, let me remind everyone that we're actually watching 621 THE BEAST OF YUCCA FLATS tomorrow night at 9 pm Eastern, 6 PM Pacific, at the MST3K Club Cytube channel.

Second, any list of MST episodes has to account for the fact that the best episodes for newcomers and newbie MSTies are different from old timers. People who've watched tons of the show find they can enjoy more than people who only know the show as "that one with the silhouettes." Experienced MSTies tend to like the hardcore stuff, but try to show a newbie Manos, Monster A-Go-Go or Red Zone Cuba and you might chase them off.

And episodes tend to change in people's rankings over time. Final Sacrifice is a relatively recent addition to the show's list of classics, for example.

Given all the Mike at the top of the list, might should I persevere through the early Mike episodes and try again?

Yes.

Yes, it's terrible, but something about it resonates with me. It's much, much bigger than a bad movie. It's a catastrophe, but there's an earnestness to it. They weren't just cheaping out to fill time in a drive-in for teenagers to make out to.
"Griffin... He ran all the way to hell, with a penny and a broken cigarette"


This is because it's a great bad movie. An ordinary bad movie is just a pandering mess. Witness anything Michael Bay has done. Movies that don't aspire cannot even be good at being bad.

Red Zone Cuba, someone cared for it. Also Manos, Ed Wood's classics, and yes, The Room, each of these someone thought they were making art. They tried but they just couldn't, due to lack of skill, talent and budget. It's not that "they just didn't care," they did care. Their reach exceeded their grasp.

Yes, precisely. This is why I cannot enjoy any of the "deliberately awful" school of cult classic movies. To be funny, the movie MUST NOT BELIEVE IT IS BEING FUNNY. It is the sincerity shining through that generates the pathos from which true humor in awfulness can be found.

Red Zone Cuba remains one of my favorite MST3K episodes, for this reason among others.
