Mystery Science Theater 3000


Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3k) is the brainchild of standup comedian Joel Hodgson. The premise is that some mad scientists have stranded one of their employees, Joel Robinson, on the orbiting "Satellite of Love" in order to do experiments on him. Their experiments? They subject Joel and his robot pals, Crow T. Robot and Tom Servo, to really bad movies in order to study their reactions. The crew of the SOL responds by making fun of the movies in order to stave off insanity. Joel eventually escaped back to Earth and he was replaced by a temp worker named Mike Nelson.

The show first aired on independent Minneapolis UHF station KTMA-TV 23 then on The Comedy Channel which became Comedy Central and finally on the Sci-Fi Channel.

5/5

MST3K is one of the greatest shows ever. The first episode I ever saw was the Attack of the Giant Leeches episode. This show is in fact, genius. It's in my top favorite shows, right up there with The Simpsons and the old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show. Trace Beaulieu is really good as Dr. Forrester. And Crow, well, Crow happens to be my favorite of the bots. Again, this show rocks! I wish it was still on, but hey, the show was so succesful, there's now some spin-offs (if that's what you can call them) I know Mike now does both The Film Crew and RiffTrax while Joel does Cinematic Titanic. Back to MST3K, I'm watching one of my old tapes (Pod People) right now, this show is so fantastic, I'm just gonna stop writing this review so I can get back to watching it. Read more
