: This week, the Outside Stuff selection
: is..."ConventioCon II Highlights:
: MST3K-TM Panel"
I was at this event, and it was (and is) enjoyable. Just before the showing of the movie itself, the cast talked about the making of the movie, aided by slides with behind-the-scenes photos. There are a number of funny moments (like Trace trying to see the slides, and Mike's food fixation), and throughout there's the view that they enjoyed the actual filming, but hated all the crud from the Universal/Grammercy execs.
This was followed up with a showing of the deleted "storm shelter" scene, and the original ending, then a brief Q&A with the audience. Then, we all got to see the movie (it was my third time). Fun stuff!

: Stuff selection is..."Being from
: Another Planet" (Show 405).
No, Servo, this isn't the worst movie you even did. It's not too bad, actually. Sure some of the characters are real dopes, and the students are annoying, but the movie is fairly well-made and acted. Hardly worse than "Robot Monster".
The riffing was great, and the host segments were good, including the introduction of the Holo Clowns and a pre-"Babylon 5" analysis of Bill Mumy's career. And I agree with Joel; the "Tragic Moments" figurines are the Mads at their sickest.
Watch out for snakes.
