Mystery Science Theater 3000: MASTER NINJA I  Rewatch   Season 3, Ep 22

Re-rewatch! Timothy Van Patten and Lee Van Cleef are the most unlikely ninjas in Japanese exoticism history. They travel the country in typical 70s TV show fashion, which fits because this is actually two episodes of The Master. There's a hamster, they live in a van, they solve the problems of the people they meet. It's not very realistic. Previously and again. Not the episode you expected? Look inside for the reason for that. [more inside]

Interest in "Kiss Me First"?

I just saw the first episode. of Netflix Original "Kiss Me First". It's based on a YA novel of the same name, but they added in some VR elements (makes for better TV I guess, but it's not the main point of the show). Great camera work, writing, and acting - watch the first two minutes and see how the director can say so much with just a simple camera pull - had me hooked for the whole ep. Any interest in an episode by episode or even just a "Full Series watch"?
