Overdrawn at the Memory Bank
You guys did this toward the end of the MST3K run on SciFi, but because of the constrictions of cable tv, I feel you guys could do an even better job of it today at Rifftrax.
1) Starring Raul Julia and a very confused-looking and desperate for work (and food) pre-Nero Wolfe Maury Chaykin. You don't have to work about them chewing the scenery because it is mostly digital--what harm could come from that?? Although, if there is a way to gain weight by eating/absorbing digital data, Maury Chaykin will find a way <insert joke about "byte" vs. "bite" here>.
2) Originally created as a PBS production, meaning it was grant and/or tax dollars funded. I'm not opposed to such expenditures of our $$$, I just feel we should get some mileage from it. So, you guys should riff is, if for no other reason than to present it to the public again for our viewing "pleasure."
3) Ummm, I can't really come up with another redeeming feature of this film, let alone a reason to make other human beings watch it. Did I mention it was taxpayer funded, so it's already paid for, why not use it again? How about all the Casablanca references and imagery? Would that count for us viewing a classic film?
Hmmm, that's all I got, guys. If nothing else, I am old enough to recall watching it on PBS back in the 80s, and it was a real stinker, no doubt, but watching the mst3k treatment of it in the late 90s made it palatable and watchable, so I'm convinced you guys would make it so much better as a Rifftrax (much like I never suspected I would ever watch Manos again, but I ended up loving the Rifftrax version of it when my daughter forced me to watch it recently).
Please!!! Just make sure to take some Dramamine first Lol - this movie is so confusing, it makes me dizzy- but it's certainly one of the classics I love!!! Best future distopian movie starring Raul Julia, even better than Adams Family Values
