proof that i am a geek

Here is why Mystery Science Theater: 3000 is the perfect tv show (ok, well aside from it being off the air for several years)
If you are not familiar with the show, I’ll sum up; basically it’s 3 guys (ok 1 guy and 2 robots) watching b-movies and ripping on them. But it is so much more than that, the comments range from the infantile to the sublime and hit every point in between. From making fun of the questionable parentage of a child to referencing E.E. Cummings, the show has it all, plus the movies they watch teaches you valuable life lessons. Like; if you live in a major metropolitan area you will see your city destroyed by a giant monster (big plus for Detroiters, no Godzilla or Gammera attacks!). if you live in a small town expect giant insects (another big plus for Detroit). Live in the country? Expect aliens (either friendly or evil). It’s better to be an underachiever who overcomes his own mediocrity, than a well respected overachiever who screws the pooch when the chips are down (how’s that for mixing metaphors!).
The show is out on dvd, if you can find a copy, give it a try.

Loved that show! Watched it weekly and any re-runs I could find. I loved the comments made.
