: Anyway, for the Outside Stuff, the selection
: is..."The History of MST3K (Pt.
This one is part of a history of the show put together for the 20th Anniversary DVD set. It covers Mike's promotion to host, the move from TFNWSRN to TSNWSRN, making the movie and the cancellation. Even at around 30 minutes, it doesn't go into a lot of exhaustive detail. Still, pretty much all of the cast are there to contribute, and they speak very fondly of making the show (if not the studio politics) and the fans. It even includes the guys behind "Satellite News". It's a very interesting documentary, and, fortunately, it soon won't be the last word.

: Ray" (Show 620).
This isn't the best of the MSTed spy movies (that would be "Operation Double 007), but it isn't too bad. Sure, some of the visuals (toy boat!) are low grade, I sometimes had trouble figuring out who was on which side, and Bart Fargo is not the most charismatic hero. But there's a lot of action, and I liked the jazz score ("Watermelon Man!"). It's an OK Bond rip-off; I've seen much worse.
The ep was good, as well. They really had some great riffing going, along with some pointed comments on the movie's lack of Bond-ness. The host segs were good, with Torgo back again, Mike in a sailor suit again, and Crow roughed up again (including the unplanned immolation).
Two pretty good ones this time. And your thoughts?
Watch out for snakes.
