I popped my MST3K cherry to the film Wild Rebels (S2E7) at a family friend's beach house back in 1990 and it was glorious.
Sure it hurt a bit, but after awhile the pain went away and I was thoroughly able to enjoy it. And, once I kept watching episode after episode, I knew I would be a Mistie-maniac forever.
My love for this television show has only grown stronger after all these years and between bootlegs, VHS tapes and DVD sets I have almost every single episode, which, I'm happy to say, is figured heavily into my home owner's insurance so that if anything happens to my house and I lose these precious television shows, I can offer top dollar to replace them.
If you haven't experienced the titillation of watching a man and some robots watch a movie, might I suggest this supercut of the entire show's run on both Comedy Central and Syfy to whet your appetite?
Because it isn't to late to drink the Kool-Aid and join us.
