Media Scrutiny Theater
« on: January 08, 2012, 08:37:30 AM »
I just listened to a fun interview with Kevin and Bill on On The Media
http://www.onthemedia.org/2012/jan/06/movie-riffing-internet-age/

and they mention that they unashamably rip off MST3K, including shadowrama, with their Media Scrutiny Theater

Some examples:

Riffing a 2010 Christine O'Donell ad:

Riffing a 2010 Alan Greyson ad (Democratic incumbant):

Not as good as those political ads Rifftrax did a few years ago, but they do get entertaining. Not wild about the animated shadowrama, though.

Apparently they are going to start this series back up again soon.
