underrated aspects of Mystery Science Theater 3000′s aesthetic

  • starfields designed with no regard for the laws of perspective
  • building sets on the other side of the viewscreen
  • the mads always being shot at a high angle
  • the way sometimes a theater shot is badly composited and you can see the edge of the cardboard standee they used for the theater seats (almost always the right edge for some reason)
  • the shitty tvs that always appeared whenever footage from the movie was necessary outside the theater
  • shooting everything in one take, damn the consequences 
    • panning shots that make this an especially stupid thing to do
  • the way crow’s eyes being glued together mean they occasionally drift across his face and make him look like a flounder
  • the constraints of the television medium leading to really abrupt cuts to commercial during theater segments
  • terrible taste in fonts leading to frequent uses of arial, courier, and what looks like some kind of proto-impact in on-screen text
    • relatedly, the info club address popping up on screen seemingly at random during theater segments
  • using complicated optical effects to make jim the plant and jan-in-the-pan look like actual disembodied heads despite the fact that the competence involved is surprising in the context of all their other nonsense
