FAN-FAVORITE CLASSIC EPISODES OF MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 COMING TO @netflix MARCH 15, 2017!
We’ve got movie sign! Classic episodes of the cult-hit comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K) are coming to @netflix on March 15, 2017!
Ahead of the much anticipated new season’s release exclusively on Netflix on April 14, 2017, twenty fan-favorite episodes of MST3K will be available to stream, including beloved episodes Manos: The Hands of Fate, Space Mutiny, I Accuse My Parents and Pod People.
Beloved by a legion of fans worldwide and ranked by top media culture critics as one of the best cult television shows of all time, MST3K follows the motley crew of a human host and his two robot sidekicks aboard the Satellite of Love. The hapless host, trapped by mad scientists on a satellite in space, is forced to watch some of the most outrageously unfortunate B-movies ever created. To keep sane, he’s built two robot sidekicks, and together they do a running commentary on the films, affectionately mocking their flaws with inspired wisecracks and acting as a demented movie theater peanut gallery.
Created by Joel Hodgson, MST3K’s first season aired on KTMA-TV in Minneapolis. Its national broadcast life began in 1989 on the Comedy Channel (later to become Comedy Central), where it ran for seven seasons. The show’s final three seasons aired on the Sci-Fi Channel. Series creator Hodgson originally played stranded host, Joel Robinson. When he left in 1993, series head writer Mike Nelson replaced him as the new B-movie victim, and continued in the role for the rest of the show’s run. The format proved to be popular, and during its eleven years and 198 episodes (including one feature film), MST3K attained a loyal fan base and critical acclaim. The series won a Peabody Award in 1993, and was nominated for writing Emmys in 1994 and 1995.
The highly successful Mystery Science Theater Kickstarter campaign to #BringBackMST3K surpassed the goal of fully funding the production of 14 new episodes and set the world record as the highest-funded Film and TV crowdfunding campaign in history. New episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000, a Netflix original series, will debut on April 14, 2017.
