Since paleontologists study fossils what about Ring of Terror with all those old fossils playing college students?

You should go with Space Mutiny if you want to ween somebody into MST3k, or Overdrawn at the Memory Bank.

Both good suggestions.  Just showed Overdrawn to a friend who only vaguely remembered MST3K and it had him rolling a few times.  I think Prince of Space would be a good one too.

I'd personally avoid King Dinosaur as an introductory episode simply because of the rampant animal abuse in that movie. I dunno, watching an alligator and iguana actually bite the crap out of each other (since I don't think the Humane Society was around yet) really made it so I couldn't enjoy the riffs. I just came out of it feeling really bad.  :(

Coming soon to an iRiff near you.

It was actually that footage (and more like it) that got the American Humane Society on movie sets.  They had suspicions before that animals weren't being treated properly on some sets - that was was just flagrant enough to make their case.

Might I also suggest 'Track of the Moon Beast', 'Werewolf', or 'Puma Man'.  If my memory serves, Tony from Puma Man is supposed to be a paleontologist.

That's true!  But then, do they make fun of paleontologists?

If not a Japanese monster movie, I'd recommend any of the Roger Corman movies.  Especially It Conquered the World.

Or Ed Wood's Bride of the Monster!

Or Teenagers From Outer Space!

Or The Magical Voyage of Sinbad!

Or The Magic Sword!

But you know, when you ask fans, we're all biased...  I can't for the life of me remember which ones keep the plot moving, but I bet as long as you avoid starting with The Castle of Fu Manchu, The Beast of Yucca Flats, or Red Zone Cuba, you're probably OK!

Actual DINOSAUR movies, would be things like Future War, Legend of the Dinosaur (if you think they are brave enough for a KTV episode), and, um, duuuuuh @_@


OH!
