The Digital Archive Project is dedicated to preserving certain TV shows from extinction by giving fans a space for trading video archives of them. The best news is that when I say “certain TV shows” I mean “certain TV shows that a geek like me likes to dream of strangling TV executives for canceling.” Their library is filled with MST3K, Freakazoid, SCTV, Pete & Pete and others.
One of features of the site that I really like is their dedication to making sure that if a show becomes (or is about to become) commercially available, they will take it off the list. I’m doing the happy dance that Invader Zim is not on their list for that reason.
Another is the great list of quotes from each episode. I could spend weeks just reading the MST3K quotes!
[Joel] You know, I found the secret of life the other day, but it kinda bummed me out. [Crow] You found the secret of life? Why did it bum you out? [Joel] Because it was on 8-track…
[Servo] How do you make a woman float? [Joel] Root beer and two scoops of dead woman.
[Joel] When you’re out in the woods, you can’t beat Off!
[Crow] She looks kind of skinny. She must be a Carpenter ant.
[Narrator] How far can the human mind penetrate the mysteries of the great beyond? [Crow] 13 feet, 4 inches; 1920 Olympics.
