They had actually been doing the show on a local Wisconsin channel for a year before that (21 episode 0th season), so they had worked out some of the kinks by this episode. It is interesting to see it with the original cast (before TV's Frank as the scientist sidekick and Kevin Murphy as Servo, though I think they improved the show a lot).
As it turns out I've ordered it so it's on its way.
Going to the Plan 9 rifftrax showing thursday?
I have my ticket.
Although I wish it were the beloved Crow and Tom with either Mike or Joel ...........or BOTH riffing on Plan 9
yeah i have that whole entire local cable access season - before the "real" season 1.
its pretty bad, but still amusing.
it's on VHS of course, looking to transfer sometime and then I can spread the mst3k love w/ whoever would want some copies.
