Monstervision Movie Reviews and Host Segments, and 100% Wierd Listings for your viewing pleasure this month
Hi, how ya doin?

Welcome to the Mostervision page.

FAQ (frequently asked question): What's the difference between Monstervision on TNT and Mystery Science Theater 3000 (still showing in reruns @ 9am each Saturday) on the Sci-Fi channel?
Monster jokes "There are 3 types of people in the world - those who are good at math and those who aren't."

Past movies have included Star Trek 2: The Wrath Of Khan, all 3 Poltergeist movies (in a row, the same night), Back to the Future, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, The Dead Zone, Christine, and even a couple of films they also made fun of on MST3K...
Following the Monstervision movie or movies was a film that TNT considers "100% Wierd". Sometimes it has something to do with the evening's selection (2 Godzilla movies were followed by "All Monsters Attack") and sometimes not. Sometimes "100% Wierd" is just a short film about Bigfoot ... which is about 50% wierd. Or the classic Japanese TV-series Ultra 7, or Gilligan's Island, which is just plain silly. Each summer, Professor Joe Bob Briggs would conduct his own Summer School

These movies continue to run on TNT, TBS, and even the Sci Fi Channel in their original form. Simply print out the host segments for the movie when it comes around and read Joe Bob's comments on each segment as you watch the movie. It's the next best thing to having Joe Bob on the couch next to you...

Books by Joe Bob Briggs are available from this direct link

In addition to being Joe Bob Briggs on MonsterVision, John Bloom also appeared on Comedy Central's Daily Show to comment on Godstuff. John Bloom's Godstuff page at Comedy Central. John Bloom does most or all of his own writing

Got your tickets for the Superbowl yet? Joe Bob used to show Black Sunday ever January, and this January it will be on Cinemax...I don't remember who sponsored it on MonsterVision each year but it probably wasn't Goodyear
Anyone know a good sitter? MonsterVision's Sitter is a little psycho

Fun fact: The Vincent Price movie "War-Gods Of The Deep" (1965) was inspired by Poe's "City In The Sea." Price's 1961 movie "Master Of The World" was based on a Jules Verne story, though Verne's giant airship was replaced by a gunship held aloft by multiple pairs of giant helicopter rotors to make it look more like sci-fi and less like a WW1 zeppelin

By the way, Junior's dad, Harry Potter, was played by Michael Moriarty. Try that out on the next trivia expert you meet. "Name the 1986 movie that starred Michael Moriarty as Harry Potter"

Note: Due to technical problems, all email sent to last year was erased. If you already sent me an offer to buy/sell/trade videotapes, I need to hear from you again. The fairest way I can do this is $5 an hour plus shipping, $10/hour with Joe Bob but without commercials. Free shipping for $50 or more (or if order would be just over $50 with shipping). Let me know what you want and I'll see how many hours it comes to. Also have many MST-3000 tapes of titles not available from and other commercially-unavailable tv-shows back to mid-1984. Keep circulating the tapes
