8/10 100% Mystery Science Theater 3000: Season 7 (TV, 1995-1997) Zombie Nightmarelingers long in the memory for reasons that have very little to do with the faux frights onscreen... As for theMSTmaterial - it's aces, as usual.‐ PopMatters

100% Mystery Science Theater 3000: Season 5 (TV, 1993-1994) The skits are sensational... especially the cracking train ditty "What a Pleasant Journey". It matches perfectly with the maudlin melodrama of the film, a potboiler filled with homoerotic ridiculousness [and] rampant brotheling.‐ PopMatters

60% Mystery Science Theater 3000: Season 4 (TV, 1992-1993) The Rebel Set... it's a stagnant, unstoppable mess. Naturally, it makes for flawless MST fodder.‐ PopMatters

40% Space: 1999: Season 2 (TV, 1976-1978) In retrospect, Season Two is not really that bad. It's just different, diving into science fiction storylines and ideas that the first season would have avoided.‐ PopMatters

82% Space: 1999: Season 1 (TV, 1975-1976) But because of the rest of the narrative elements... and the solid emotional underpinning - the flaws don't feel so substantive. It's a reaction that's relatively common when canvassing Season One.‐ PopMatters

No Score Yet Land of the Lost: Season 3 (TV, 1976) It was Season Three where things began to go downhill... Good writing and proper production values were no longer important.‐ PopMatters

No Score Yet Land of the Lost: Season 2 (TV, 1975) Season Two feels like a retread, not an expansion, of Land of the Lost's possibilities... This doesn't mean the Second Season was a complete disaster.‐ PopMatters

100% Land of the Lost: Season 1 (TV, 1974) Season One of Land of the Lost is a true minor gem in the sci-fi genre, a show that took itself, and its premise, very seriously. ‐ PopMatters

10/10 100% The Twilight Zone: Season 1 (TV, 1959-1960) Not every chapter is a pot boiler, but when it does start to simmer, it's hard to make it stop. ‐ PopMatters

No Score Yet Lost in Space: Season 2 (TV, 1966-1967) Over the course of the episodes gathered here, we witness a once adequate adventure tale turn tacky and twisted.‐ PopMatters

No Score Yet The Simpsons: Season 12 (TV, 2000-2001) Even halfway through their unplanned legacy, the show is still great.‐ PopMatters

100% The Simpsons: Season 7 (TV, 1995-1996) ... consistently, the funniest show on television.‐ PopMatters

No Score Yet Stephen King's 'Kingdom Hospital': Miniseries (TV, 2004) While it may not resonate with the heebie jeebies we've come to expect in our PG-13 horror movie world, or perfectly capture Lars Von Trier's demented design, Kingdom Hospital is great television.‐ DVD Verdict

8/10 100% South Park: Season 11 (TV, 2007) As long as its founders find fault in what they do, South Park will strive to maintain its own unique level of anarchic insanity. ‐ PopMatters

No Score Yet South Park: Season 9 (TV, 2005) Still going strong after eight seasons... South Park is the sole show on basic cable that completely understands how to do satire.‐ PopMatters
