: Weekly' On-Line Interview (1998)"
I got this one a while back from Cheezy Flicks as part of a collection of MST-related audio segments. I'd never heard this one before, and it was very interesting. It was recorded just as Season 9 was starting up. Mike & Kevin talk about changing the actors on the show, the troubles when making MST3K-TM, and how BBI got away with little meddling from the networks. Running about 30 minutes, I thought it turned out OK.

Well, the guys riffed on another Supermarionation effort for their second episode. This "movie" was taken from the "Captain Scarlet" series, where the puppets were more lifelike, and the content more edgy (like puppets getting killed). Even with the cheesy title graphics, this one at least was a bit better sewn together than the "Stingray" or "Space:1999" ones.
As for the ep, Tom finally appears, though he still doesn't have his usual voice. There's slightly more riffing, but still much less than even the later KTMA shows. The segments have a Thanksgiving theme, but that'd be better explored in later years. All in all, it's good to see the show's beginnings, but I wish they'd re-done this one at some point.
Your thoughts? Anyone?
Watch out for snakes.
