This Is "This Is MST3K"
13 December 2002 | by (Somewhere in Time and Space) – See all my reviews

I remember when I first saw this (during Turkey Day '92) how tantalizing it was to get my first glimpse of the inner-workings of Best Brains. Oh, how I froze every frame of the behind-the-scenes shooting of "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians". And how I relished every soundbite from the cast and crew (Joel: We never say 'Who's going to get this'. We always say 'The right people will get this'). The footage in the writing room alone is worth it's weight in Spacom.

But now I watch it and am annoyed, first of all by the hosting job done by Penn Jillette, and second of all by the presence of Doogie Howser's Neil Patrick Harris. The whole special has the air of having the show described to you by people who have only seen it once. Why, why, why?!? The Sci-Fi era "making of" special is much more satisfying (and only slightly as annoying).
