    Mystery Science Theater 3000: Does Bullshido Have a Man on the Inside?

    I've watched most of the rebooted episodes on Netflix. They are pretty good, where I never warmed to the SciFi Channel version, this felt like vintage MST3K immediately.

    Perhaps the second episode, there was a shot apparently meant to represent the vision of a dinosaur, with some slo-mo, muddled sound, and a red filter. The accompanying quip: "this is filmed from chuck Wepner's perspective!" Most recently, there was a reference to chess-boxing. Perhaps most convincingly, during a fighting scene with dismal, Kirk vs Gorn choreography, somebody chimed in "that strikes me as a low-percentage technique."

    Now, none of this is conclusive, but the last comment in particular is a stark contrast to the hippie laden, Aikido loving TV/movie writer, so I have to wonder.

    I have often wondered the same thing.
    There are plenty of phrases and keywords that pop up and seem to reference the "culture" here.
    “I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.”

    "Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. The anti-Semites have the right to play. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past."
    ---Jean-Paul Sartre

      I think MST3K ruined a whole generation, and now none of them will shut the fuck up whenever a movie is on.

      Any movie. Have you witnessed this?

      It used to be considered rude to talk during a movie, now any time I go to the movies it's like there are 10-40 year olds all over the theater trying to act like Crow T Robot.

      I like sarcastic banter but..

          How the fuck can you afford even go see a movie?
          I sure the fuck can't....

            I honestly haven't seen this, but plenty of people that just can't stay off their damn phones, so I'd blame Instant Gratification Entertainment before MST3K. Those 10 year olds are really unlikely to have been influenced by a 30 year old show that went off the air for good around the time they were born.

              I will dig through my collection and see. I know there are more I just can't think of or reference them at the moment.

                Ah-ha. If it predates the current season, that is a juicy clue.

                  They mock cult-like quirkiness and bad krotty fights, both common to the old 70s possibly foreign movies they like to roast. A similarity or two to Bullshido was bound to happen.

                  I can't stand the parts between the movies though.

                    Don't rely on theory if your life is at stake.

                      True, but "low percentage technique" is awfully specific vocabulary.

                          Definitely, but also certainly a very small subset of the culture of which Bullshido is a part.

                            Very true, most anyone training BJJ, or any combat sport these days, has run across the term.
                            I was up till like 5 this morning watching old episodes and think maybe I was projecting ... I haven't caught any in the older episodes yet.

                              MST3K Season 2 Episode 2 "Sidehackers".

                              Tom Says: "Since they are showing us ESPN maybe they will play us some Kickboxing from the Philippines."

                              which is random as hell but shows an interest in Combat Sports.
