This morning, with the showing of Episode 912: The Screaming Skull, (complete with short Robot Rumpus), Mystery Science Theatre 3000 officially went off of the air forever.

it's the end of an era.

i must remember to set my vcr to record the old ep of saturday night live tonight, where they're rerunning an ANCIENT episode where Joel Hodgson was the comic talent on it.

wurd.

in unrelated news: i bought a cd burner earlier this week. rawk.

Re:
firstly: i think she meant 912= season 9 epiosde 12(thats how most shows do it..) so its not the 912th episode... but the 12th episode of season 9...

secondly: (i think)the show went off the air in like 99, but the sci fi channel has now stopped showing reruns...

those bastards

I almost felt like I shoulda "been" there, watching it, yet I've got the ep. on tape along with far too many others as well as DVDs I've sprung for *plus* a sweatshirt with Tor's face on it. There were so many close-calls over the years, the Comedy Channel debacle, Sci-Fi's reluctance each year to renew, now finally this, a world without 'bots. Whats important (in the grand scheme of importance, on the low end, not "blood transfusion important" but still...) is that *we* knew about the show, watched it, got it, and take that with us. I'll curl up with Santa Claus Conquers the Martians or probably more likely Space Travelers tonight and let the laughter live on.

Damnit, that show was never on when I'd be able to watch it, and I'd never think to tape it, and now it's off the air? Bastards!

It's a conspiracy.

noooooo! if I'd known that I'd have gotten up to watch it and commemorate the occasion. *sheds a tear for her beloved MST*

On a somewhat unrelated note, do you prefer dvd or vhs format for your viewing pleasure?

i think overall, i prefer dvd, because it a) takes up less room on the shelf, and b) retains better quality over time...

whyever do you ask?
