TLOTA: I’m James Faraci The Last Of The Americans and The views I’m about to express are that of my own and some of yours. So, Mystery Science Theater 3000 has returned with new episodes on Netflix with a new host and a new set of MADS. My thoughts after watching the first episode? (Cut to host clips and clips of the MADS from “The Beast Of Hollow Mountain” episode of MST3K: The Return and clips of Classic MST3K as James does a voiceover)
TLOTA(Voiceover): I WANT SEASON TWO! YESTERDAY! They did it, they got everything right about the series. I mean it didn’t hurt that Joel Hodgson is now the showrunner, but the fact remains the series is continuing it’s great ability to riff bad movies and everyone laughing with the host, Tom Servo and Crow. But this is where the show has shined the most. From the past 10 seasons on Television or the countless reruns that air either on Comet TV or even on the streaming services that are around I think that the series continues to be successful and revered because it still remains true and unlike the people who worked on “Attack Of The Eye Creatures” EVERYONE on the new show CARES to honor the past and take care to make sure the future is solid! (Cut to James physically)
TLOTA: And for me to honor the past and make sure MST3K’s future fans know about the show, I am going to share with you my 10 favorite episodes of the original series! (Cut to clips of the classic series as James does a voiceover)
TLOTA (Voiceover): And for this list there will be a few rules. One, I am going with the ten seasons that aired on Network TV. The New MST3K just ended it’s first season and I am gonna give it a few seasons before I give it it’s own list. Two, For every Joel Episode there will be a Mike Episode. Three, The reason for the episode appearing on the list will either be the riff was great, the host segment was good or even the highlight of the episode or for that matter the story involving the host in the episode makes it worthy of being on this list and Four, The MST3K movie is disqualified because I already talked about it in July of Last Year! (Cut to James physically)
TLOTA: Now with that said, these are my Top 10 Favorite MST3K Episodes!
