The History and Legacy of “Mystery Science Theater 3000” continues its Legacy stretch with Chapter 14: Extra-Curricular Activities!
Cinematic Titanic began in the studio but it ended on the road. We conclude the story of the Traveling Wilburys of movie riffing (Joel Hodgson, J. Elvis Weinstein, Mary Jo Pehl, Frank Conniff, and Trace Beaulieu) with their final five DVD releases, all riotously funny live shows.
-Blaxploitation merges with kung-fu when "East Meets Watts"!
-Don Dohler offers creative low-budget monsters and plenty of tedium in "The Alien Factor"!
-Fake butterflies on a string are just one aspect of the "Danger on Tiki Island"!
-The Shochiku Company crams sixteen insane movies into one "War of the Insects"!
-Sam Chew (?) battles aggro serpents in "Rattlers"!
We talk disbandment, instantaneous riffs, Renaissance Festivals, your host's deathly fear of snakes, Al Adamson's "contributions" to cinema, and so much more, plus cameos from Black Dynamite, James Hong (!!), Ruth Larson, and the ghost of Wes Craven.
Join your wonky yet affable host for the end of something great and the start of something new!
