MST Poopie (Best Brains, 1995). [Category: Outtakes & Obscurities]

This blooper reel from "Mystery Science Theater 3000" is a lot more fun than most blooper reels, and I don't just say that because I'm a mstie. The Brains are very creative people and it shows on this tape. They don't just curse when they blow a line or a piece of set falls over––they use it as an opportunity to ad-lib wildly, and some of those ad-libs are funnier than the original script. Also, the puppet handlers often remain in character as their puppets, so it doesn't so much look like Trace or Kevin blowing a line as it does Crow or Tom Servo. Highlights include Joel blowing his single one-word line in the "funny thing with Cambot about waffles", an intimate moment between Morrisey and Dr. Forrester, and Kevin Murphy as a giant leech asking a constantly cracking-up Frank, "Is it my sucking?" Lots of fun.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: ****.
