(the TV-pilot movie)
The television phenomenon of our time (no, not "According to Jim")
is now the RiffTrax phenomenon of this week! Yes, "Lost", the thrilling saga of a group of castaways – of varying degrees of hotness – and their struggle to survive without having to resort to wholesale drinking of their own urine (see Mike's review of The Postman/Waterworld). "Lost" conveys the wit, intrigue and fierce intelligence of "Gilligan's Island" in a modern setting – and without the mind-shattering annoyance of Bob Denver!
If you like your "Lost" with a little something on the side, you'll love Kevin and Mike's take on the pilot episode.
(Note: the pilot is two hours split in half, so this RiffTrax comes in two parts. And, yes, you'll get both for the $2.99 price.)
Lost (click twice to play clip)
Here's how it works. If you do not already own a copy of this fine TV-movie, simply click your choice of DVD or VHS video below:
"Lost" availability on VHS video and
on DVD and even
books (though I'm not sure it works as well to read a book while listening to the MP3)
Now click the banner below for the RiffTrax website and get Mike's commentary on MP3 (it only costs a couple of bucks). Then play the MP3 on your favorite computer or MP3 player while you enjoy the movie, for running commentary by Mike plus the voices of Tom Servo and/or Crow T. Robot. To put Mike's voice directly on the movie DVD and sell it all together would have meant buying rights to the movie and who has that kind of money? Especially after Crow lost all the money from the guys' MST3000 years to some fellow in Nigeria who promised to wire millions of dollars to Mike as soon as he got the bank account number...
