[Presents] - MST3K Hobgoblins

The "author" is taking a week off, to rest, relax, and maybe kill off some aquatic life. And he's doing this far way from the so called internet. So, in place of two day old news, angry, judgy reviews, and long, rambling opinions on how people, far more successful then he'll ever be, suck, he's going to post one of his favourite episodes of Mystery Science Theatre 3000 each day. He'll be back next week to be long winded and judgy.

A lot of people point to Manos: The Hands of Fate as the greatest episode of MST3K. Others point to films like Santa Claus Conquers The Martians, or the Gamera series. But for my money, for the perfect balance of an absolutely, soul crushingly terrible film, and hilarious, side splitting riffing, it has to be Hobgoblins. The 1988 film that made up episode seven of the ninth season remains my favourite episode from Mike and the Bots, and they are obviously having a blast ripping into this Gremlins ripoff. The highlight being the Club Scum sequence, where the Bots try to figure out exactly what in the hell the band is singing.

About MR. Clark

Adopting the descriptor of "successfully unpublished author", MR. Clark began writing things on the internet in 2012, which he believed to be an entirely reputable and civilized place to find and deliver information. He regrets much.
