Mystery Science Theater 3000: THE DEAD TALK BACK   Rewatch

Re-rewatch! It's the third time we've shown this manifestly absurd film, about a parapsychologist with a Kermit-the-Frog voice who assumes that he has gravitas, and everyone else in the movie seems to believe it too. He lives in the basement of a boarding house with a collection of pseudo-supernatural trinkets, where he awaits the call of Law Enforcement when they need his, um, special talents. Sadly a lot of the movie is talking. Comes with a short, The Selling Wizard, in which a narrator and a mute pizza dominatrix jointly attempt to sell the audience on commercial freezer units. Previously and again.

Love this episode (and movie) so much.

A little additional info on Krasker himself: Aldo Farnese.

This has one of my favorite relatively obscure riffs in it:
Younger, than Springtime, are you sir.

Which is a reference to the song "Younger than Springtime" from the musical South Pacific.
