Mystery Science Theater 3000 Is Coming Back—Again

In 1997, Mike Nelson and his robot friends, Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot, watched a bad sci-fi film called The Thing That Couldn’t Die. We might as well rename the beloved TV series Mystery Series Theater 3000 with the same title, because the fan-favorite show looks like it’s almost certainly going to be resurrected…Read more...

‘Mystery Science Theater 3000’ Cast Members Reminisce About All-Things MST3K [Comic-Con 2020]

For a laid-back, ultra-chill, good-natured Comic-Con panel, Mystery Science Theater 3000 creator and original host Joel Hodgson and former cast members Bill Corbett (Crow T. Robot #2) and J. Elvis Weinstein (Tom Servo #1) got together to reminisce about the past. There were no shocking revelations to be had. No surprise announcements. No gossip. And yet, to hear these folks talk about working on MST3K is a treat. In 1988, stand-up comedian Joel Hodgson and a few friends launched a show on...

TV on DVD: “Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXXIX”

Rhino released the first volume of Mystery Science Theater 3000 on DVD way back in 2002. Let that sink in: two different companies (Shout! Factory took over licensing MST3K in 2008 before acquiring the brand outright in 2015) have spent more years than the show actually ran (ten, or eleven if you count KTMA) tenaciously negotiating rights to movies that otherwise would have long disappeared down the memory hole, all to satisfy one of the tightest and most dedicated fan bases in television. (Shee...

We’ve Got Movie Sign! Mystery Science Theater 3000 Returns

I won’t belabor the point: if you have an ounce of nerd in you, you know that today’s the day Mystery Science Theater 3000 returns from the cancellation void for its first all-new season in nearly 20 years. All 14 episodes are now available to stream, but die-hard Popdose MSTies Tony Redman and Dan Wiencek (along a few thousand other Kickstarter backers who ponied up to bring the show back) had advance access to a stream of the first show of the new season. They eagerly compared notes to give yo...

TV on DVD: “Mystery Science Theater 3000, Volume XXXVIII”

With the debut of an 11th season of Mystery Science Theater 3000 mere days away at the time of this writing, you could forgive a fan for finding himself a little distracted. And yet, as they count the hours until April 14, Popdose MSTies Tony Redman and Dan Wiencek pause from watching the clock long enough to survey the newest Shout! Factory DVD release, Volume XXXVIII. This all-Mike offering concentrates on the show’s sixth season, with a fan favorite from Season 10 thrown in for good measure. ...
