RIFFTRAX #300 is fast approaching!!
« on: September 22, 2019, 12:22:26 PM »
So by my anal calculations (unless they don't consider Yule Log  a "RiffTrax" release) and based of their announcing that STONE COLD was number 200, the latest release of Subspecies was number 297!!! 

I hope there is something special planned for #300!!

I haven't watched the Yule Log special, but I assume it shouldn't be counted - they don't count those weird clip show specials they released way back in the first 200, right?

They only noticed the 200th because we pointed it out to them, so they may not do anything special unless someone draws their attention to it...

I would count it because most, or at least a lot of the stuff was new riffs.

And Kevin's butt.

One of the old clip show specials was entirely new material.

Those were specifically called RiffTrax "Specials". Yule log is just The RiffTrax Yule Log. So who knows how they internally classify it.

Well, they call this one a fireplace video and say there's really nothing like it :P

Seems strongly to sit outside of the main line of rifftrax to me.

MrTorso, could you post your list? I’m curious what counts? (Like Bridget & Mary Jo riffs, Cole and Janet, Matthew And Ian, or is it straight Mike and MKB? Do the few Kevin and Bill riffs count?)

Ha, ha, I wonder which one of them will be tasked with doing the actual counting to verify the number. I mean, if they decide to something special about it.

They should do an all-star riff of 300 like they did in that Rifftrax Live a few months ago with the mads, Bridget and Mary Jo, and the rest.

That would be fun. Even thought that is one of their early classic riffs, that movie is so riffable I'm sure they could mine more material from it.
