The discussion in the favorite movies thread inspired me to create this one.
For those unaware, Mystery Science Theatre 3000 was a cult classic show that ran from '89 to the late 1990s on Comedy Central, and, later, the Sci Fi channel.
It centered on a "guy named Joel" who has been trapped in space because "his bosses didn't like him." As part of their experiment, he is forced to watch terrible B-movies while his bosses monitor his brain.
To stay sane, Joel creates some robot friends, Tom Servo, Crow T. Robot, Gypsy and Cambot. Together, they riff on the terrible movies and keep their sanity. Joel was replaced with Mike Nelson halfway through, carrying the show for another 5 seasons.
Here's a sample of what might be the guys at their peak form:
I know we have a few MST3K fans here...do we have more?
What are your favorite episodes? You guys excited for the reboot?
