Mystery Science Theater 3000, Ep. 821: Time Chasers

This was always one of my favorite Mike sketches…probably because it feels like a Joel sketch, y'know? I just love the idea of the hero and the villain just chillin’ and shootin’ the shit, sharing a mug of coffee in the infinite vacuum of space…

CultureTHEATER: “Hello Dolly” - 1967 Production

In 1967, Pearl Bailey & Cab Calloway headlined an all-black cast version of the musical on Broadway where it played to sold-out houses. Bailey was given a special Tony Award for her performance and RCA released a second original cast album featuring the performers. 

In the not too distant future

Next Wednesday A.D.

There was a mayor named Joel

Not too different from you or me

He worked for the town of Beach City

A little coastal place with some history

He did a good job cleaning up the place

BUT THE GEMS DIDN’T LIKE’EM SO THEY SHOT’EM INTO SPACE

“We’ll send him cheesy movies!”

“The worst we can find!”

“He’ll have to sit and watch them all, and I’ll monitor his mind.”

Now keep in mind; Joel can’t control where the movies begin or end

He used up all that energy

TO BEAM UP HIS SON AND FRIENDS

COOL KID ROLL CALL

SOUR

JENNY

BUCK DEWEY

LAAAAAARS!

If you’re wondering why the gems did this

And other canon facts

Keep in mind; they’re just fanfics

You should really just RELAX!

FOR BEACH CITY SCIENCE THEATER 4000!

We couldn’t just go through this series without having a few Mad Scientists! Hehehe. This is Pearl Forrester (played by Mary Jo Pehl) from Mystery Science Theater 3000– probably my favorite show ever. If you want to make quick friends with me just be a fellow fan of this show.  
Pearl works to rule the world through mad science while torturing people with bad movies on the side. Surprisingly, I ended up liking Pearl even more than Dr. Forrester. A+ choice to keep her on as the main villain once he left.

MST3k ~ Nothing's Changed at All!
Okay, a few things have changed, and not small changes either, but still, I'm very happy with Season 11, and it's totally the same vibe and texture that made...

New fan video for MST3k, blending the old with the new!

Steven:  You were in space too, Mayor Dewey?

Dewey:  Oh yeah, back in my internship at Gizmonics Institute.  You probably haven’t heard of them, they went defunct as of recently.  Next Sunday, AD, I think.

Dewey:  See, these mad scientists who worked on floor Deep 13 were working on an experiment to take over the world by playing the worst movies ever made to drive the populous mad.  They needed a test subject, so they kept me prisoner on a satellite and beamed up a bad movie for me to watch about every week.

Dewey:  Oh, but I was crafty.  I built some robots to keep me company.  Some to run the higher functions of the ship, but others were my buddies who kept me sane from the experiments.

Dewey:  Oh, I can still remember the memories…

Buck: Dad, for the last time, you were not stranded in space.

Dewey:  Yes I was.

Dewey:  HI KEEBA!!
