I'm not really familiar with this show, having only seen it once before (when Mike, Kevin & Bill were on it). It's a sort of edgy, hip comedy quiz show sort of thing. Well, that's the theory. I didn't find it particularly funny or edgy, for the most part. I guess the kids like it, though.
The new MST castmembers were OK. Pretty much the only thing I really noticed was how the host (whose name escapes me) gushed over how good the new episodes were. However, he didn't add anything about how TFNWSRN shafted the show once Doug Herzog took over.

: the new season with..."The Time
: Travelers" (Show 1103).
One again, for those not wishing to be spoiled...
And here we go.
The movie was a seemingly low-budget, early 60's look at how a group of white, American scientists accidentally time portal themselves into the far future, run into a group of white, American survivors of a nuclear apocalypse, and help them escape from white, American mutants. Things go off track, there's a supposed villain who maybe isn't one, the group's comic relief falls for a beautiful girl with low standards, there's blatant fan-service, and so on. In short, it's a lesser sci-fi movie, but perfect riff fodder.
As for the episode, the show continues on an upward path. The riffing is great (particularly the sequence set in a robot-making lab), and Gypsy gets a substantial role in one of the host segments. There's also a wordless cameo by...see for yourself.
Another good one for the new season. Over to you...
Watch out for snakes.
