I wish they'd fix the iRiffs page on the site...

Try broadening your horizons, there is more than one way to riff on a movie.  There are many great Rifftrax Presents and iRiffs out there already to enjoy.

I have no doubt of that and I am certainly not trying to say that any of the iRiffs are bad, just that they are not what I am looking for. It's the same as when Leno would sub for Carson on the Tonight Show; sure, it was the same writers, jokes and gags, but I would tune out because I wanted to see Johnny, not Jay.

We're not talking about the same show with a different host.  We're talking about a form of comedy.  Do you only like one comedian?  Do you only watch one sitcom?  Do only enjoy one comedic film?

Jeremy Hotz, Night Court, Hot Shots.

But I am not talking about a form of comedy, I'm talking about a performer (or three in this case). I'm not just looking for any riff, I'm looking for a riff from MKB. It is just a matter of preference.

How can you have a 'preference' without trying the other?

Have you ever checked samples on Rifftrax Presents or iRiffs?  You might find something the clicks for you.  There are riffs that are just as good as, and sometimes better than, what MKB have put out.

In the end it's your choice.  I'd say you're missing out, but that's just my opinion.

In all honesty, I had the same attitude up until the beginning of this year.  Since I have almost all of the MKB blockbuster riffs, and they won't be doing obscure DVD riffs any more, I've decided to branch out.  It's takes some getting used to, when you have been a fan of one group of riffers for over two decades and are used to hearing those voices.  So, one a certain level, I can understand this.

Who was it that did the Twilight riff about the same time the guys did??  I really enjoyed that one enough I made a second riff audio track on the same DVD as my normal riff.  I just mostly remember the long drawn out "kiss" scene: "I've always wondered what it was like to see you from 3 inches away...... niiiiiiiiiice..... Aw dammit, you moved!"

I never said that I didn't, but is it that hard to understand that (most) people came here solely because of MKB (especially before the iRiffs were even a part of the site) and that we want more from them?

It IS hard to understand why someone would create an account and have 100% of their posts be complaining.

So you have tried the Rifftrax Presents catalogue? Who did you try, and what did you think?

My biggest problem with non-MKB riffs is hearing new voices with no way of knowing who is who because I have no reference. If that makes sense

I only find that a problem if they sound the same.

If they sound the same or if I just don't know which riffer is talking.  The Tron riff is like that. I didn't know who Paul & Storm was and I only heard JOCO sing. I had no idea who was riffing at anytime because I didn't know their voice and I couldn't get into it.
