Title: Whatever happened to Joel?
Post by: Zardoz! on December 22, 2007, 04:06:12 PM
Can someone tell me what ep of MST3K mike replaced joel in?

Also, what's/how's joel doing now? I heard he was a standup comedian before MST3K and used some of his old props for invention exchange. Did he go back to it? I bet his routine would have audiences now....

Well, he is on dialup. Perhaps he's stuck in 1997 and won't get news of CT for another 10 years?

Option one, he's being sarcastic since CT hasn't made any big acknowledgment of Rifftrax.

Option two, the dial up thing.

Option three, the shock of seeing what Joel looks like today fried his brain.

 :speechless: That took some getting used to before I could look any further into this. So, what was he doing until October?

There's a fourth option, but I'm not feeling cruel at the moment.

I heard he's a magic consultant for the Harry Potter movies. But secretly, I think he finally gave in and now makes all the props for Carrot Top.

hmm,  keep in mind this is the same guy who joined fairly recently and asked if Mike would ever consider riffing Plan 9 From Outer Space, gathering information on riffers obviously isn't his strong suit.

seriously though, just google Joel or check out what they have on Wikipedia and you'll get all the information you need.

Hey, I don't obsess over most sahows or go into details of peoples lives. I don't cyber stalk stars and was just curious as to how he was doing.

I'm glad to see he's doing fine and still at something he enjoys. Given the years that've passed since MST3K began he looks OK.

Posting on a message board for Rifftrax I think we would all assume you knew what happened to Joel.

Who is this "Joel" person you all are talking about?
Title: Re: Whatever happened to Joel?

Joel Robinson was a fictional character.  Joel escaped the Satellite of Love (S.O.L.) in a previously undiscovered escape pod (named the Deus Ex Machina) mislabeled as a crate of "Hamdingers".

There now that's settled.

Don't forget he briefly returned to the Satellite of Love to perform some maintenance.

Nah, if that was the case, Joel would've died, remember the kid could only safely transport inanimate objects...

Maybe that means Joel's really a robot...

Well Ive never seen him at any of the Robot meetings

Maybe he's a new model Cylon?  Not even the other machines know for sure what the last one looks like.
Title: Re: Whatever happened to Joel?
Post by: bettertomorrowamy on December 29, 2007, 04:14:33 AM
Now that would be a great way to end Battlestar.  Have Joel play the final Cylon.

Well, we can't prove that Joel is NOT a robot, so I'm going to assume that he is.

One of those new fangled receding hairline robots.
