Play MSTie for me

A while back, I decided to watch the "Best Movies" of all time. I took the films listed in these lists:
At the time I compiled the list, there were 222 films on the lists. I watched them all. More about that here and here.

Now, I'm recovered and ready for my next project: watching all the episoded of Mystery Science Theater 3000.

I enjoyed the show, but came in late, shortly before Joel left and Mike took over as the experiment subject. So, I haven't seen all the Joel episodes. And, I missed some of the Mike episodes. So, I've decided to watch them all.

There were 176 (or 177; more about that later) episodes made for The Comedy Channel, Comedy Central, and The Sci-Fi Channel (now SyFy), plus one feature film. I've purchased 78 episodes from the official MST3K Online Store, from Rhino, from Shout Factory, from (including some out-of-print videos), or from iTunes. Most episodes not released commercially are available from fan sites. I've purchased some of these.

[UPDATE: Since I originally wrote this, I have obtained the rest of the DVDs. Not just the episodes, but all of the DVDs, including out-of-print, re-issues, and variations of the packs. So, I have a complete MST3K library.]

I'm looking forward to this project. I just need to figure out when to begin. I think I know when would be appropriate time to start:

In the not too distant future, next Sunday A.D. ...

  1. I'll be interested in your review.

    I jumped in quite early, back when Joel was running the show, and I thought letting Mike take over started it on a downhill slide.

    You're coming in from the opposite perspective, so...
