Episode 142: Movie Sign and Chill

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

For 10 seasons, the TV show Mystery Science Theater 3000 has been making some of the worst movies out there into hilarious viewing experiences. On April 14, 2017, the show returns with new episodes. In celebration of this momentous occurrence, Geek Salad has once again united to list off some of their favorite episodes and shorts from the show's history with Episode 142: Movie Sign and Chill.

Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine each come prepared with a list of some of their favorite moments in MST3K history. In which movie did we see the epic battle between Paul Anka and Mel Torme? Which short gives us valuable tips about what to do on a date? Is the short, "A Date with your Family" as creepy as it sounds (hint: Yes). All these questions, and more, are sure to be answered.

Episode 137: Kristmas Karol by Edmund Welles (the Well-Known Dutch Author)

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

It's Holiday time once again, which also means that it is once again time for Geek Salad to present their annual Holiday episode. This time, they cover Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, and the revenge of Tiny Tim in Geek Salad episode 137: Kristmas Karol by Edmund Welles (the Well-Known Dutch Author).

Ever since it was first published in 1843, hardly any story in history has had as many adaptations as Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. While there have been a number of well-done faithful adaptations, and quite a few fun and different takes on it as well, there have also been more than a few versions that bring out the Scrooge in us. So join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Autumn as they experience both the highs and the lows.

They are also accompanied by three spirits: Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, and Mulled Wine.

Episode 92: Rankin My Bass

Saturday, December 21st, 2013

Just in time for Christmas comes Geek Salad episode 92: Rankin My Bass. Yes, join Andy and Mike with special guests Joe and Autumn as they rank their bass guitars and attempt to... oh, wait. Wrong bass. No, this is a Holiday episode, so of course the gang is talking about the ups and downs (many, many downs) of the Rankin & Bass Holiday specials. Starting with Rudolph, the duo of Arthur Rankin and Jules Bass came up with some of the most classic animated specials to ever grace the TV screen. Unfortunately, they also inflicted some of the most confusing, scarring, and just plain hateful moments as well (what the hell is an Awgwa, anyway?)

After that, there's some DC-inspired Stupid Stupid and a retro Trailer Park with "Santa Claus: The Movie". Finally, stick around for some Salad Shills that range everywhere from Doctor Who to commercials from the '70s.

And to everyone, whatever you celebrate, have a very happy Holiday season.
