For the serious MSTie

  • Dec 3, 2001

Every family has its own in-jokes that can seem incomprehensible -- or worse, stupid -- to outsiders. This outtakes reel is a lot like that. Some of the things on here -- like Crow's head bursting unexpectedly into flames, or ad libbed lines in the theater -- are pretty funny by any standard. But watching Joel, Mike, the Mads, and others flub lines or burst out laughing at the wrong moment probably has limited charm for someone who isn't a died-in-the-wool member of the MST family.

It's good to know the Best Brains had as much fun making the show as we had watching it (that, at least, is the sense we get from 'Poopie!'), but don't think this video is a substitute for one of their top-of-the-line episodes. If you're a really hard-core MSTie, you need to get this. If you're not, you'll probably wonder why the MSTie you're watching it with is rolling on the floor laughing and gasping for breath.

About this tv show


Though a scant 30 minutes,MST3K'sPoopiereel of outtakes is worth every sumptuous second. In it we witness the best of special effects gone awry, flubbed lines, and general goofing around by Joel Hodgson, Mike Nelson, Trace Beaulieu, Frank Conniff, and beloved robots Crow and Tom Servo. While you might think this reel features scenes of limp robots and their human roboteers sporting witty quips, the outtakes package is often quite the opposite. We hear Crow and Servo in character cracking spontaneously hilarious comments one couldn't have the pleasure of hearing even on primetime cable TV. What's more, you'll end up shaking your head in admiration at the comedic talents of Kevin Murphy (Servo) and Trace Beaulieu (Crow). In short, if you want to get crazy, if you want to get loose, if you want a funny, intimate peek behind the now-retired world ofMST3K, thePoopiepack is the perfect capper on a long, illustriously witty run of one of America's most creative and entertaining television shows.--Karen Karleski
