Satellite News has an interesting new interview with (arguably) the chief Brain, former MST3K producer and current rights-holder Jim Mallon. They describe it as being “no-topic-off-limits,” and I appreciate the gesture, but it’s not quite as hard-hitting as I would’ve liked. Nonetheless, it’s a much better interview than what we’re used to.
While there’s nothing too controversial, there are a few noteworthy responses. Jim possesses the missing KTMA episodes, for one. (He seems willing to release the host segments.) And Jim doesn’t contradict any of Joel’s recent claims about the past, which is nice. He does, however, carefully maneuver around the question about Josh’s departure, and he says that the animated shorts were discontinued due to cost, ignoring the fact that 80% of the fans despised them.
Good read, though. Check it out.
