Well, I liked how this came out. I trust knowledge of the source is not required for enjoyment.--Procopius 18:34, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

This is based on the reimagining of Battlestar Galactica, correct? Make it more apparent. Even if you just have a See Also section with "Battlestar Galactica" in it, it makes the joke apparent without making it blatantly obvious. -- §. | WotM | PLS | T | C | A 01:33, 6 January 2007 (UTC)
Humour: 5 The jokes are all very holistic, if you know what I mean. They meld together into one giant joke, which, to me, is not particularly compelling. There were definitely aspects of it that I liked, using Ingmar Bergman movies, for instance, but I thought a lot more could be done in this regard. I feel like you have a solid base, you just need to add the funny.
Concept: 6 I must's still pretty oblique to me. I've not seen the show, but I'm familiar with it's premise, and I still had trouble with it. It's not that the idea of recasting the show as a serious one is a bad, it's actually a pretty good, it's just that the humor doesn't exactly follow directly from this concept. What's funny about this? I imagine lots of things, but few of them were apparent to me as I read this.
Prose and formatting: 9 The writing is consistently grammatical, appealing, and, in turns, actually very appealing. The formatting is also flawless, and use of many different text styles and image placements complements the elegant prose.
Images: 7 They were OK. Anytime you can throw in a picture of the 7th Seal, though, you get bonus points.
Miscellaneous: 7 As with all your articles, it just has an innate appeal. I cannot help but like it, even though I didn't 'get it'.
Final Score: 34 It's not a bad article at all, in fact, it's actually quite a good one, but I don't understand, exactly, what's satirizing. Maybe this is my igoranance showing, but I didn't see what was eminently funny about the overall idea.

edit a bit of commentary from myself

I must say, I really enjoyed this article. Usually, Uncyclopedia is a seething pool of vitriolic, satirical rage, worthy of even the most ungodly flamewars, but this article was a nice change. It wasn't really making fun of MST3K, but it was still enjoyable to those who knew the franchise.

Great work :)
