It's back to looking at the episodes of the twelfth Mystery Science Theater 3000 collection, and specifically "The Starfighters." I've noticed people complaining that the movies of the show's sixth season could tend towards the tedious, but I have to admit that I particularly like at least some of them... and perhaps because I like how the "riffing" responds to that tediousness. (I also like how the riffing responds to their awfulness, as well.) I was perhaps slow to watch "The Starfighters" the first time around because I wasn't sure how I would respond to it (after all, there's an little piece in the official episode guide itself where Frank Conniff talks about a fan complaining to him about "Why did you guys do Starfighters?", and admits that they needed a film no matter what), but in the end I did like it quite a lot.
