It wasn’t meant to be funny. Probably.

Michael J. Nelson from the now gone MST3K has a new gig, but doing the same old thing. RiffTrax are audio commentaries that you play on your portable media player while watching a particular movie.

It’s not _quite_ an original idea, since it is basically like the commentary podcast that is put up for Battlestar Galactica episodes. The differences are two-fold: These won’t end up on the movie DVD, and in theory they’re funny.

Still, it’s a good enough reason to put “Road House”, the only track available right now, in my Netflix queue. Given the way the poll on their site is going however, it looks like “The Matrix” may just be next.
