academically interesting but weak
29 July 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I love Joel. He impresses me as witty, intelligent and creative. MST3K is ample evidence of this. The TV Wheel is evidence of his intelligence and creativity, but it lacks "the funny", and in this case, two out of three is pretty damn bad. The concept is new (if a bit schticky)...or at least it's creatively executed. But the performances are sweaty, desperate, and unamusing, and I get the feeling Joel was really stretching his faculties and abilities getting a dodo to fly...just for the challenge of getting a dodo to fly. I felt like I was watching a friend screw up a recital. Give this embarrassment a miss and rent/buy some of the original MST3K episodes... you'll be much happier. Let's hope Joel finds his performing legs again.
