50. Horror, Punishment, Redemption. [MST3K. 610. The Violent Years.] / by Chris Piuma

The Violent Years celebrates our fiftieth (!) episode by treating Beth and Adam to some Ed Wood, old-timey titillation, new country, squishy electronics, and uncanny dummies.

Includes a short: Young Man’s Fancy!

Content warning: This episode contains a discussion of the sexual violence in the movie, especially from about 20:00 to 35:00 (until the Shallow 13). If your podcast app supports chapters, it’s easy to skip over that segment if you’re not up for it.
