How did you hear about or find Rifftrax?!?
« on: December 03, 2006, 12:08:30 PM »
I actually heard about Rifftrax through www.dapcentral.org (Thanks Tarantulas!) but what I really want to know is how all the new people (and older ones) that are coming in and saying hello here found out about rifftrax.

So please share your story!

I found out about it on the IMDB website. People were talking about it on Mike's profile board and on the MST3K board. I checked into and was absolutely estatic when I heard about Mike, Kevin, and Bill doing commentary for more modern movies. It's a very cool concept and I'm glad Mike found a way to do it without infringing on any copyrights. Rifftrax rocks!

Satellite News had a story about it when it first started.  That's how I found out about it.

Bought Roadhouse when it was the only one available, so I've been a Rifftrax customer since the beginning.

It's a little hazy.  I think the euphoria I experienced caused me to lose track of all space and time.  Probably Satellite News, though.

I read the blurb at the Satellite News website, and nearly soiled myself in glee. Moments later I was downloading the Star Trek V RiffTrax. You all know the rest.

Satellite News.  I came over here and the site was still in beta and Roadhouse was coming soon.

I came in right after Mike did Fifth Element.  So enthusiastic was I that I even helped update the Wikipedia page and have altered other related pages to link to either Legend Films or RiffTrax.

But let's not turn this into a whole "Who Has the Most Riff Cred" thing.  I'd lose.  There's a thread idea:  "What Have You Done for RiffTrax?"

Thats not the goal of the topic...the goal is to find out how people are hearing about the site and also to hear there fan reaction.

I wonder also how many people who are hear had never seen/heard about MST3k before coming to rifftrax.

I must give Udvarnoky of the DVD Verdict forum many thanks for alerting me to the creation of Rifftrax!

My first purchase was Road House when the site was still in beta form. Then I bought The 5th Element @ $1.99 and the rest is...

I was notified via email from Legend Films, from whom I'd purchased all Mike's riffed movies.  My first thought was  :D, quickly followed by :'(   :'(   :'( because at the time I had a computer with Windows ME and a dial-up connection.  I'd been given an I-pod for Christmas which my OS wouldn't support, and it would've taken hours to download the riffs.  I finally got a new computer and broadband connection this past September and Rifftrax was one of the first, if not the first site I visited.  I seem to remember they had three movies available at the time (or possibly two and one on the way).
