MST3K: The Return (w/ Lead puppeteer Grant Baciocco)

Join Scott, Hamish, Kevin, and Matt as they welcome a very special guest to the show, "Mystery Science Theater 3000" lead puppeteer Grant Baciocco! Listen as they discuss the long awaited return of MST3K, thanks to a very successful crowdfunding campaign and years of loyal fan devotion. Grant will share his personal experiences leading up to his work with Crow T. Robot, such as being a puppeteer for the Jim Henson Company, working for Cinematic Titanic, and even getting to open for Weird Al Yankovic! He'll talk about being a diehard MST3K fan who now gets to operate Crow (as well as voice and operate new bot Waverly!), what's involved for the team of puppeteers working on the new MST3K, and what it's like working with creator Joel Hodgson and the talented cast. The group will also discuss the new MST3K episodes, including their early favorites, lines they loved, various visual gags (flying Tom Servo? Yes!), and so much more! So repeat to yourself "It's just a podcast, I should really just relax" and tour the dark side of the moon with us!

Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi (Teaser)

Join Scott along with Hamish and resident Star Wars expert Paul as they take an in-depth look at the new teaser for the highly anticipated follow-up to 2015's The Force Awakens: "Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi"! Listen as they breakdown every scene of our first taste of this new episode and discuss details you may have missed. They'll talk about the status of our heroes and villains since the last movie, what we can expect from Luke Skywalker, and what might be revealed in this episode of the saga. They'll also discuss the Journal of the Whills and how it may relate to this film, the concept of the grey side of the force, and why maybe the Jedi really do need to end. Will we find out Rey's history? Will we find out who Supreme Leader Snoke is? Will Rey be the first of a new force-wielding order? Why are all of Poe and Luke's nice things getting burned!? It's all discussed and much, much more! So put your ancient book back on the tree shelf, crawl into a rehabilitation pod and comb over every detail of this teaser along with us! May the force be with you!

Beavis and Butt-Head: The Great Cornholio

Join Scott and Shawn as they take a look back at one of the quintessential cartoons of the 90's: Beavis and Butt-Head! And of course, if you only had to pick one episode of Beavis and Butt-Head to watch, it's the one being reviewed in this week's episode: "The Great Cornholio"! An episode with big pop culture significance. So much so that it changed the word "bunghole" forever. Listen as they detail the history of the show, from a short called Frog Baseball made by a former physics student named Mike Judge, to a long running and beloved series on MTV, to a full-length feature film, to a one season only revival in 2011. They'll talk about the issues with the home video releases, including what was cut from this episode, their own experiences with the show growing up in the 90's, and what exactly made this show about two stupid high school aged losers so hilarious and special. So devour some candy, down a six pack of root beer, pull your collar over your head, and look for TP along with us!
