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...

First Look: “Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Gauntlet”

Following its splashy relaunch in 2016, Mystery Science Theater 3000 is returning for its second post-revival batch of episodes (its 12th season overall) on Thanksgiving Day, November 22. Turkey Day, of course, is the day MST3K premiered on humble KTMA in Minneapolis/St. Paul, way back in 1988, a milestone which the new episodes commemorate with a jaunty “Celebrating our thirtieth year!” announcement now incorporated into the title sequence. Fellow MSTie Tony Redman and I will return in a week o...

‘Mystery Science Theater 3000’ New Season Premiere Set for Thanksgiving

Mystery Science Theater 3000 is returning to Netflix with an all-new season, and the premiere date couldn’t be more perfect. The new MST3K season will debut on Thanksgiving Day, which is kind of a staple for the show. The very first episode of the show launched on Thanksgiving Day in 1988, and in its original incarnation, the series would run “Turkey Day” marathons on Thanksgiving. Netflix also announced the show’s renewal last Thanksgiving. So break out the stuffing, dump the cranberry sauce o...

‘Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return’ Gets a Second Season Order at Netflix

It was a bit of a miracle that the cult favorite movie mocking series Mystery Science Theater 3000 ended up finding a new home at Netflix after a successful crowdfunding campaign paid for an entire season of new episodes 18 years after the series had ended.  The series revival brought comedian Jonah Ray on board as the new human host trapped with a couple of wisecracking robots by a pair of mad scientists who are forcing them to watch some of the worst movies ever made. And now we’re going to g...

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...

I went to see MST3K Live and all I got was entertained…

There are very few things that a 7-year-old and a 39-year-old can agree upon. Just the other day, it took me an hour and a half to figure out where to get something to eat with my child, due to his picky tastes in fine cuisine. Peel and Eat Shrimp or Mac 'n' Cheese - I had to find one of those in the middle of a city I was unfamiliar with. We ended up eating at the hotel across the street from our hotel. On the way out of that fine dining establishment, a pleasant young lady proceeded to hock ...

Pop! Television: Mystery Science Theater 3000

At the beginning of this year, we announced that Funko would be releasing a series of Pop! Television: Mystery Science Theater 3000 figures. At that time, all that was available were artist renderings. But Funko has now released actual image of both the Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot Pop! vinyl figures.

Next Sunday A.D. – Movies That Should Be Featured on Mystery Science Theater 3000

Mystery Science Theater 3000 is back for a new generation of smart alecks to learn about camp. The one aspect of the MST3K revival that was kept secret was also the most important thing for the show – which films the creators would choose to be relentlessly torn apart on the Satellite of Love. In an interview with The Nerdist, series creator Joel Hodgson said he wanted to use the same sort of movies that made the first version of the show so successful – films that are old and weird. But a moder...

New episodes from Mystery Science Theater 3000 are now available on Netflix. But since this is a show that first rose to fame in the 1990s and then disappeared at the turn of the century, some audiences who aren’t familiar with the show might need a proper introduction to the series that mocks some of the worst movies ever made.

The 10 Best ‘Mystery Science Theater 3000’ Episodes

In the not-too-distant future (this Friday, April 14, to be exact), Mystery Science Theater 3000 will return, bringing terrible movies and endless riffing along with it. The original iteration of the show ran for a whopping 10 seasons, spanning 197 episodes and a feature film, building a devoted cult following in the process. “Keep circulating the tapes!” became the show’s rallying cry, as fans would record episodes on VHS tapes (remember those?) and swap them amongst each other.
