For God's sake, I hope in season 12 they at least get rid of that idiotic gag where Jonah re-enacts the opening every week.

I think I kinda hate season 12 because Joel was the creative director behind it.  This is probably an unpopular opinion, but Joel Hodgson is not a funny human being.  It baffles me that he has established such a long career as a comedian.  Shout Factory box sets always included a mix of Joel and Mike episodes, and I always found the Joels to be a chore.  I would try to watch them first just to get them over with so I could watch the Mike episodes.
I'm not particularly religious, and I don't really like Muppets, but I do love word play.

I would like the opening reenactment more if it were an actual reenactment. As in, wasn't clearly always the same recorded performance every time.

Retro Muppet Pastor, I agree with you. Joel has such a dull stage presence that I don't get why he was popular in his stage act in the first place. I do think he can be funny. He is funny at riffing, certainly. But most of the time when he's onscreen I'm just bored.

Wow...been a while since I've seen a MST3K thread devolve into a Joel vs Mike debate.
Back on topic, the Joel comment about things being in the works for Season 12 but not being able to give details due the lawyers was from a backer update a couple of months ago. I take no cancelation announcement from Netflix as a positive, but it still wouldn't surprise me for Season 12 to end up on Amazon or Hulu. Another hope for season 12 would be a weekly release of episodes instead of a dump of all at once, but that woild likely mean a pickup by a network and not a streaming service.

Hulu release weekly. Netflix has done it a little (and does it in other countries).

You know, I'll say this for him: I warmed up to Jonah a LOT more quickly than I did Mike. Mike took a few episodes. I was pretty well sold on Jonah by the end of the first episode. (That might have something to do with the fact that I never got Comedy Central, and wasn't aware at the time that the host had changed when I saw the movie and the Sci-Fi era, so it was a bit of a shock.)

If there is an announcement for a season 12 my bet is that it comes before Turkey Day via AV Club.

I guess the odds were pretty good. I had to work in the morning so I was in bed when the announcement was made.
