Synergetic Magic

I was a big fan of MST3k, and have kept track of some of the actors from the series in the years since. This is reasonably well-founded because they were a comedy troupe and wrote a lot of the jokes together. It's kind of like keeping track of the Pythons. This has worked better with some of them than others; I'm coming to see that a fair part of the pagic of that show was how all of the actors fit together, and that it's easier or a quip or riff to fill small moments than stretched ones. Mike Nelson managed to fill a whole book (Death Rat!) with midwestern-mocking funny, but many of the rest just arn't that funny alone. Looking forward to the Rifftrax Manos thing coming up though.
