We got a request last week to have a later showing, so my plan is to revise the schedule and have two showings of the movie separated by some shorts. I plan on starting the first one at 6 PM Eastern, and the second one around 8 PM. Again, the URL will be posted here before the show.

"Sadly", I won't be able to make it for all the rock climbing action this week. I'll see you all next week. Have fun watching tonight.

It's going to be weird watching an MST3K episode NOT centered around a biker gang

I'm sorry to say it hellojed, but next week we have another biker movie, in fact it's a very biker movie, bikier than the others, in fact the bikiest movie MST did: 209 THE HELLCATS.

I think that might actually be a worse movie than Manos, which is saying something. This one could have only been improved by the presence of a biker gang. Who...climbed rocks. On their bikes.
