The Best Mst3k episode ever

Author: beness321 from United States
7 August 2006

this is, without a doubt, the funniest episode of mst3k ever to air. Everyone is on top of their game today. The writing was perfect for the perfect movie to rip on. It's one thing to watch a really bad movie that already knows that its not good to make you fall asleep. It's another thing to watch a really bad movie knowing that they might've have tried to make a good movie. You can obviously tell from the actor's 'dramatic' pauses that the director thought himself a c-movie genius.

It's a great starter episode in case you want to watch or you want your friends to get hooked on it. There aren't many of those complicated references to unknown celebrities, bearable in-between segments, catchy tunes making fun of Satan that are probably the diamonds in the entire treasure chest of laughs. Mike, Tom, and Crow each have there moments, from Tom singing, "Hallmar Hall of Fame presents, The touch of Satan... Come sit with meeeeee, and Satan toooo, He's your friend and mine," or "Do you mind if I skip across it?" To Mike sheepishly asking, "Your kind of an idiot Arne't you?" to Crow shrieking in horror, "Oh no, now the credits are going to unspool backwards!" As usual Mike writes all the best lines for the bots, though I think we pretty much have accepted them as suitable characters, but the big surprise comes that there are so many good lines in this episode, even mike comes off as insanely hilarious.

Once again, the greatest episode ever, a must-see of the series. Details: you can only find it online or on a four-disc set with "Merlin's mystical shop of wonders" "Boggy Creek 2: And the legend continues" and "Time Chaser" ToS and MmsoW are the two good ones. BC2 is okay, and Time-chasers is a below average episode that can be funny at times.
