That's a disappointment. "Space Mutiny" is arguably the best Mike-era
episode. The riffs literally started from the first opening credit and
didn't stop until the very last end credit, and the DVD (pulled in 2010)
included an introduction from Mike himself.

Ever since Amazon Prime started charging for the MST3K episodes I've
been looking for a place to (legitimately) watch them for free. I'll
have to break out a UHF antenna to pick up that station, but thanks.

Did anyone else watch this, and if so was the audio really weird?
During the movie, they had the riffing entirely in the left channel
and the movie's audio entirely in the right channel. The host
segments were similarly odd, with some characters on one side of
the audio spectrum and others on the other side. Nothing at all
in the middle.

Was the episode originally broadcast on Comedy Central that way?

I've never seen this episode on TV but I checked the Shout DVD
(20th Anniversary box) I have with headphones, and it has normal sound.
Did the Retro-TV broadcast have strange sound throughout or is it
only on certain sections?

It's all the way through. The movie segments have the riffing
entirely in the left channel and the movie soundtrack entirely in
the right channel. The host segments have Joel, Crow and Servo's
voices entirely in the left channel and everything else (Magic
Voice, background sounds, etc) entirely in the right channel.

It's really odd, and makes the episode somewhat difficult to watch.
I wonder how it ended up that way.

For what it's worth, I just checked the recording of Cave Dwellers
that recorded last weekend and it has normal audio.
