    The Mary Jo Pehl Show rating: +++1/2

    DAAAAAARRRRRKKK!
    But nutty as f**k and totally worth riffing.
    And yet this is another one that is a cut above, quality wise, of the usual MST-type fare.
    I usually HATE seeing the simultaneously scrolling comment threads on things like Twitch for being either too distracting or vapid, But after a few of these Mary Jo Pehl Shows I gotta say I have been really digging them and it’s either more enjoyable or not…

    Visually marvellous!
    ...and now a more expanded 'review' after having slept on it...

    Saw this with my Ltrbxd comrade, LaserDisc and we very much enjoyed it.
