    yeah still pondering my choices,.. Giant Gila Monster..... I want to vote for Master Ninja, but I suspect Sandy Frank eps might be wasted votes still.

    I voted for Godzilla vs. Megalon just for the hell of it. It's the best episode there is, so we might at least make sure Rhino knows it, even if it is very difficult for them to obtain the rights.

    I also voted for Master Ninja I, The Beast of Yucca Flats, Laserblast and Santa Claus.

    Major disapointment that so many people are voting for the Sci-Fi channel episodes. Most of those were shown so often they were annoying after a while. I know there's four or five that only were shown a couple times then pulled, but I'd really like to see some Joel stuff. Where my choices fell in the poll are pretty depressing. [​IMG]

    615 - Kitten with a Whip -- (#55)
    211 - First Spaceship on Venus -- (#108)
    306 - Time of the Apes -- (#18)
    506 - Secret Agent: Super Dragon -- (#82)
    706 - Laserblast -- (#5)

    Yeah, I did vote for PUMA MAN, which I'd seen pre-MST3K.

    And TIME OF THE APES, even though as a Sandy Frank film, it's pretty much a lost cause. I'm really hoping the Mexican SANTA CLAUS turns up, too. It's jaw-dropping.

    But two I'd love to see -- and voted for -- are SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL and THE HUMAN DUPLICATORS. The latter has Richard Kiel, while the former stars Ian "Deadwood" McShane and Pernell Roberts. Ian McShane was better known for his role in "Lovejoy" at that point which was always showing on A&E. Every time McShane would turn up on screen, the 'bots would holler "Lovejoy!" Classic.

    Puma Man is hilarious, but I would rather see Comedy Central episodes rank higher. I made Godzilla vs. Megalon my top choice, and I'm glad it got so many votes. If only the people who say "it'll never get cleared" would just vote for it like they know they want to, it would have been #1. Then Rhino would have had something to think about! Anyway, Jack Frost and Laserblast happen to be two of the Sci-Fi eps I've been meaning to see...

    706-Laserblast was actually a Comedy Central episode. It was, however, the LAST Comedy Central episode....

    I thought the whole thing holding up the Godzilla eps was the guy who brought the films to US audiences in the first place. I read that he was so angry with the comments Joel and the 'Bots made that he refused to renew the licensing rights after they expired.

    What a spoilsport! Maybe he should take a hint from Halle Berry's acceptance speech at the Golden Raspberry Awards -"My mom taught me that in order to be a winner, you have to be a good loser, too."

    Of course, Joe Don Baker has also sworn to get even with the Brains, and I don't recall any of the MST3K staffers or cast members ever mentioning fear of him.

    My choices for episodes would be

    Amazing Colossal Man and its sequel, War of the Colossal Beast, Puma Man, Jack Frost, The Magic Sword, Beast of Yucca Flats, and just about anything Bert I. Gordon and Roger Corman threw at us.

    What extras did people vote for?? I can't believe that so many people voted for cast commentaries. Seriously what kind of commentary could there be for the movie segments?

    "Here is where we made the joke about the prune colored muscle car!"

    I guess they could talk about the technical aspects of filming MST3K:

    "Now for this shot we sit in front of a green screen and look at little monitors at our feet for our cues and then for this shot we sit in front of a green screen and look at little monitors at our feet for our cues..."

    Hopefully we will get some of the extra specials that were filmed before we get commentaries.

    Well, its not totally bad news for fans of the older stuff. "Santa Claus", which was my number one choice, scored pretty high (#8).

    I'd kind of be curious to see cast commentaries. I mean, the whole show is basically a commentary, so this would be the first commentary over a commentary that I can recall. There would be three different audio sources going on at the same time. It would at least be interesting.

    I don't care which episodes are selected, as long as they keep 'em coming.

    The only priority, to me, would be to focus on titles that they already have the rights to but might not indefinitely (if it even works that way).
