Favorite MST3k Episode?

I've been getting back into Mystery Science Theater 3000 recently, thanks to a friend's collection, and have seen a bunch of episodes that I had never seen before.

I watched "Hobgoblins" yesterday, and thought it was one of the best that I've seen.

My other favorites include: "Manos: The Hands of Fate", "Cave Dwellers", and "Deathstalker". All freaking hilarious.

There are still a bunch that I haven't seen. Any recommendations? How about your favorites?

I think mine is: Space Mutiny


It's horrible in so many good ways. If your friend has a copy you should definitely check it out.

It's so hard to pick just one!

"How much Keefe is in this movie?"
"Why, Miles O'Keefe!"

Yeah, Prince Of Space is awesome. A favorite at my house, since my wife is Japanese.

"More squid eyes dear?"

"Crank whore?"


And Chew, it's "How much Keefe is in this movie?"

Manos has always been my favorite!

I caught an episode this weekend [Invasion of the Spiders or some such] and it re-affirmed my stance that Joel was by far the superior host. Mike's okay, but the Joel-era MST was just brilliant.

This one's my favorite as well.

"Please don't touch the customers, Jim."

"So, then my Mom says to Roosevelt, what about some kind of Lend-Lease program?"

Any Gamera movie. I had never even heard of Gamera until I saw it on MST3K. They didn't even have to make jokes about it. It's a spinning flaming flying turtle!

Master Ninja II starring Lee Van Cleef has always been my favorite for some reason.

The gamera movies are all great. Godzilla v. Megalon is an all time MST3K classic too. Some of my favorites are:

Sidehackers

Catalina Caper

Santa Claus

Robot Monster

And pretty much all of the shorts.

Don't have a favorite. There are so many episodes that I don't even remember anymore.

Of the DVD-available episodes, I'd say Eegah and The Brain That Wouldn't Die. Still wishing and hoping for DVD editions of Santa Claus, The Beatniks and Teenagers From Outer Space.

The Beatniks was great

Any of the shorts are fantastic.

Pod People

Of the handful I've seen, Manos is clearly a cut above (or should it be below?) the rest.

Recently, of the Sci-Fi episodes they've been showing, I think The Girl In Gold Boots or Final Justice have given me the most laughs.

Man, its been a while since I've watched an episode.

I can't recall the episodes, but the one that had the song "He tried to kill me with a forklift" always makes me laugh.

And the one with the short, fuzzy alien. Stompy I think was the name.

And of course, who can forget the Wild, Wild World of Bat Woman?

Manos and the Gamera movies are the two that come to mind.

Time of the Apes. An entire TV series cut down into one movie. Just as good as it sounds.

The fashion show during one of their breaks was great.
