If the early bit "watching" Carlos's theatrical death didn't clue you in, I'm a big fan of "Mystery Science Theatre 3000" even if I never watched it on television. Where would we be without Youtube?

In case you're going "Wait... who?" for some of these, here are some best of clips:

"City Limits": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjCA7FENmtg&p=75DBA975EB52F710&playnext=1&index=32 Featuring James Earl Jones and an early Kim Cattrall, this is just... lame as a film. The overall effect of the MST3K episode is fun, though, and there was a great essay about it and MST3K in general on the Onion AV Club: http://www.avclub.com/articles/mystery-science-theater-3000-city-limits,41335/

"The Touch of Satan": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdVXtPFqZlg (Make sure to watch through for the use of "Amazing Grace"!) If I could have worked in the quip "Emby Mellay? That's not a name; that's a bad Scrabble hand!" I would have, but it just doesn't suit the flow.

"Space Mutiny": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cOwnCnRYJU This is one of the top five episodes of all time. It's easily one of my favorites. It would be fun to riff on the whole crappy film in Lego, actually. The character's actually called Commander Jannzen, I think, but the riffing on "Captain Santa Claus" is just so endearing that I had to use it.

"The Final Sacrifice": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FrJkngXnvsM&p=13910B29EB9B6FF9&playnext=1&index=31 Made for less than a shoestring in Southern Alberta, this episode features inane plotting, ridiculous villains, an anti-Canadian sing-a-long, a crazy hermit, and Zap Rowsdower. This one's easily my personal fave.

"Rowsdower, could you put out my head?" is one of my fave lines of all time. You can use it in few situations and few people get it, but it always makes me smile.

lol, Captain Santa Claus. I'll watch the clips at some point today. I like where this is headed. :)
