A cult favorite since its inception in 1988 as a cable-access show, Mystery Science Theater 3000 follows a man (series creator Joel Hodgson, then head writer Mike Nelson) forced by a mad scientist to watch the most terrible movies ever made. To stay sane, he and his robot sidekicks (Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot) provide a hilarious running commentary making fun of the film.
Mystery Science Theater 3000 ran for 11 years, spawned a feature film, won a Peabody Award, was nominated for two Emmy Awards (for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Writing for a Variety or Music Program), was nominated for a CableACE Award, and was recently named the #4 Best Cult TV Show Ever by Entertainment Weekly.
Retro TV is proud to return MST3k to the airwaves, with a specially-curated collection of fan favorites. Tune in every Saturday evening to catch all of the insanity, and catch a special encore presentation each Sunday afternoon!
Just repeat to yourself, "It's just a show – I should really just relax."
