First, "Krull", the 1983 cult classic cheeseball.  A group of friends of mine and I sat down with this one recently and we had a blast riffing it.

Second, "Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars".  I used to be a big fan of this show and never saw the ending, so it might be cathartic for me.

Just curious how interested people might be in a) hearing a riff of either of these or b) participating.

Thanks from a newb,

I'll second what RVR said.  I've only seen a little bit of Farscape, never enough to make any sense of it, but it's possible.  I've considered Krull as a target myself, and I know quite a few people have suggested it, so chances are you'd have an audience with that one.  If you felt like doing both, that's the one I'd start with.

Actually, I'd put in a vote for Farscape. The show was fun, but it had a lot of exploitable absurdities.

That was kind of my thought regarding Farscape as well, Junkyard.  Though Krull is probably the easier target of the two; I and my friends had very little trouble finding points to jump on in the film.  I'll probably start that one first, then.  Thanks!

Yeah, Krull would be the better target for riffing.  Full of 80's style fantasy, Dino De Laurentis-style production, its just begging for riffing.  The Farscape movie would be riffable simply for the standpoint that its Calculus-level confusing for the uninititated.That movie was made simply for the fans in mind.  If you've never seen an inkling of the show, you'll be more confused than a vegan in a steakhouse.

Nothing to do with anything, but I just really enjoyed that comparison.  :D
