Season 12
« on: July 01, 2017, 08:34:26 PM »
Are they making a season 12?  I found season 11 to be hit and miss.  Mostly miss TBH but I think they can get better.  Talk slower.  Work on the Mad's performances.  New Tom voice IMO.

No news yet. I'm betting there might be news out of San Diego Comic Con later this month.

I didn't really like season 11.  It felt like a chore to get through.  Felicia Day is a delight, but this whole thing felt like some fan project.  It usually wasn't funny, and I hated the joke about Jonah re-enacting the opening sequence every time.  It made no sense and was completely unnecessary.
I'm not particularly religious, and I don't really like Muppets, but I do love word play.

Have you been on the "Watch Out For Snakes!" tour? They fixed a lot of problems with Season 11, including:
  • funnier riffs
  • funnier host segments
  • return of screen interaction à la Hexfield Viewscreen
  • Tom's voice sounds distinct (because it's a different voice actor)
  • Kinga is more threatening
  • riffs aren't at a rapid-fire pace but slower so audience could laugh
I could go on and on. They clearly listened to all the people like you who didn't like Season 11 (or felt it wasn't up to snuff) and addressed in the live show. Then again, Star Trek: The Next Generation's first season was a stinker as well. If MST3K is renewed for a Season 12, it can only get better!

It's good that they're trying to improve, but I'm not optimistic.  Joel is the main creative force behind this, and I always found most Joel episodes to be unfunny.  I'll still give it a shot if another season comes out.

I'm glad there will be a season 12, but I won't cut it nearly as much slack as I did season 11, which, on the rewatch, I find pretty weak.
