And we're back! Sorry that took so long, but we hit a bit of a quiet patch. I'm ready to run meetups again, though, so here we go:
This was the "lost" episode; it originally aired out of order (as though that matters for MST3k) after the official end of the series. It's a cobbled-together anthology movie using Ernest Borgnine's rejected script for a Merlin TV movie as its framing device, which itself used the framing device of Merlin opening a store in SoCal in the late '80s, from which "be-careful-what-you-wish-for" stories are set into motion.
Yeah, it's a bit of a turkey. Still, it's a watchable movie, the riffing is solid and there's a creepy monkey toy in it. Are you glad we're back? If so, "you're welcome!"
So join your fellow MSTies at Pizza Pro's in DeKalb, starting at noon, so be sure to come hungry! I charge an event fee of $5 to help recoup costs for room rental, A/V equipment, DVDs and a personalized, preprinted name badge. If your guest(s) also would like a personalized preprinted name badge, please put his/her name into the comments section of your RSVP.
