favorite MST3Ks?  
So, I'm going to order some tapes from this guy, and I googled for an hour or so to try and find lists of top fan-rated episodes, but damn, it was hard. I found some scattered results, but nothing jumped out at me as especially useful or definitive. So, I'm wondering if people have any recs? What are your top 10 or 20 favorite episodes? And, actually, I'm really only interested in ones that haven't aired on SciFi and aren't available retail.

The link above has a tape list w/episode titles, and there are lists here at the official fan club web site.

Also, if anyone has any links to web sites where the episodes are rated, that'd be cool too. Any help much appreciated. :)

Yay, I'm glad you heard back from him! I love, love, all the Gamera ones but the first one is definitely the best, IMO. Also, Bride of the Monster, Attack of the Eye Creatures, Girls Town, Santa Vs. the Martians, Village of the Giants, The Violent Years, Fire Maidens from Outer Space, King Dinosaur, and Laserblast.

Thanks! :) When you say the first "Gamera" is the best, do you mean "Gamera" or "Gamera Vs. Gaos"?

I mean "Gamera". "Gamera Vs. Guiron" is probably my second favorite. I like how a lot of times they would just keep mistakes in, like during "Gamera Vs. Guiron" one of Crow's arms falls off a few times and they just keep on rolling while Joel reaches over and snaps it back on again.

I also enjoy "Gamera Vs. Zigra" but not as much as the other two and "Gamera Vs. Barugon" & "Gamera Vs. Gaos" tend to blend together for me.

I'm fond of "Laserblast", "Hobgoblins", and "Overdrawn at the Memory Bank"

Oh, wow. He sells entire seasons w/discounts. I am tempted in a different direction now....

I'd like to add my own personal favorites here:

Teenagers from Outer Space. Very *old* teenagers from outer space. One word: Torrrr-turrrre!

Rocket Ship XM -- Lloyd Bridges in space. "What are you going to be doing five years from now?"

Manos! My friend Aristede was heartbroken when her groom balked at playing Torgo's Love Theme as their wedding march.

Mitchell!! AAMOF, a double feature of Manos and Mitchell.

Last but not least, not by a long shot-- The Brain That Wouldn't Die (or The Head That Wouldn't Die, depending on whether you see the beginning or the end of the film.) "Six weeks without a job accident, and now *this!*"

I have no sites or ratings. These are just mine. heh

I got go with Claire and second "The Puma Man". The flying. Oh man it's hilarious. Like superman with steering problems. I might just order myself.

I'm fond of It Conquered The World and The Puma Man. Sadly, I can't remember ten to rec to you. I need a memory upgrade, apparently.

I just watched Mitchell last night, and oh.my. I think I ruptured something.
"How do you like your scotch?" "By the quart."
The "love" "scenes."
"Merlin Olsen hasn't found his instrument yet."
Can't recommend that one enough.
"Laserblast!" And not just because it's the last *sob* episode. "It's Scott Baio class!" “Got to see if ‘Beyond the Valley of the Planet of the Apes’ is a go!” "Roddy McDowell is 'Silkwood!'" "Boy cameltoe!" And on and on...
Also, I remember "Danger: Diabolik" being pretty fab. As an added bonus, it's got a great Ennio Morricone theme song.

My personal favorite, the one I watch over and over, is "Rocket Attack USA"--"Enjoy the fentoozler!" Second to that is "Daddy-o!" "Hike! hike! hike up your trousers!--Hike up your trousers like mine!"

I think "The Screaming Skull" is the one that starts out with a Gumby short involving robots. Crow and Tom are severely traumatized. Anyway, I (belatedly) recommend that one.
