Mystery Science Theater 3000: MAC AND ME  Rewatch   Season 12, Episode 1

Rewatch! A disturbingly malleable, bubble-gum-like alien and their family get stuck on Earth and befriend a wheelchair-riding boy in this notable box-office failure. Chris Pratt seems to like it though! Season 12 ties Season 7 for the shortest season of MST3K. This is the first episode of "The Gauntlet," a series of MST3K episodes designed to be binged, although that'd be over nine hours of riffed film, so good luch surviving that. Unlike the previous episodes, I only posted each MST3K episode from Season 12 once, so less of a retread this time! Previously.

And William de Worde of the Ankh-Morpork Times in to cover the stories on the ground. And Polly Perks, a young barmaid, chops off her hair and puts a sock in her trousers to enlist in the last company Borogravia can hope to recruit in this struggle, every member of which seems to have a secret.
