It's Back -- And Maybe Even Better
16 September 2018 | by skinnybertSee all my reviews

Comedy Is So Subjective, vol. 201: This was my first of the new MST3K, which proved entertaining and/or funny throughout (which couldn't be said about every episode of the original series). Concerns that it might be a pale imitation proved groundless, as did concerns that targeting a younger audience might leave us classic MSTies behind. There also seemed to be a higher rate of riffs per minute with no lulls. Hiring twice the number of writers must be paying off!

A big help comes the movie itself: lively, colorful, and energetic -- throwing cast members through sets and situations with all the abandon of an adolescent sci-fi fan on a sugar high. But the MST cast prove just as entertaining -- to their credit, it seemed like they could be given a lot more time (which may be what the other reviewer found lacking).

In short, typical MST3K fare: the kind of film that used to fill Saturday afternoon programming on the independent channels, riffed by pros. I don't know if this is the "best" of the new crop, but it's certainly good enough, and got me interested to see more.

7/10 = not just solid but interesting / fun
