On the other hand, "Atlantic Rim" put out such overwhelming waves of badness that I felt *unprotected*, in spite of the riffs. This has happened once or twice for me with MST3K -- maybe it's just me.
In any case, if you've been waiting around for some new MST3K, I heartily recommend paying whatever it takes (which is probably a Netflix subscription) to see Season 12. And, judging from the end of "Ator the Fighting Eagle", it appears a Live Tour is in the offing (perhaps here: mst3klive.com). If the riff quality on that is up to the standards of this season, that should be a must-have ticket, too!

P.S. If you happen to still be on CLU GULAGER ALERT, may I point you to Quentin Tarantino's new film, "Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood". My alert didn't go off before the end credits (shame), but perhaps yours will earlier!
