It occurred to me that I should make my endorsement before it’s too late. I support Mike Nelson. Don’t get me wrong, I think that Joel Hodgson is great, and he certainly deserves credit for being the creator. But Nelson had a certain goofy everyman quality that fit Mystery Science Theater 3000 perfectly. I defy anyone to watch Mike and the bots riff on Girl in the Gold Boots or Track of the Moon Beast without laughing hysterically.
I picked up a copy of the 20th anniversary collection of the show a couple of days ago, so naturally it is on my mind; but I can’t help thinking that there is some other matter on which I might want to make an endorsement, but for the life of me I can’t think of what it is. Probably nothing important.
