MST3K Rewatch Christmas!  Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

Arguably my third favourite episode.  This one has solid host segments, almost constant riffing, and a bizarre plot that just makes you scratch your head.  It really does have everything.  It's a Christmas miracle!

Being one of the most popular and infamous and well known of the MST3Ks, I'm not going to go too much into this one, but it is well-placed on the "Essentials" two disc set.  Probably moreso than Manos, which I am not a huge fan of.  Sacrilege, I know.  And I'll get around to that one eventually, don't worry.

Crow's Christmas carol is one of my faves, and while it hasn't become a true standard like Crow wanted, I think amongst the nerds, it has found its own level of standard-dom.

It always bugged me at how obvious the wish squisher was.  I wish they could have made it less obvious that Frank was flipping over the cool presents so the opposite side would be opened once it had been turned into a crappy gift.  Not a huge complaint, but it always got to me. ;)

"Custume designer" is a typo that I will never forget.  Which means I probably spelled the typo wrong here...

Next week, back to normal DVD watching.

And as a bonus, have yourself a Patrick Swayze Christmas!
