    Official thread for all things MST3k-related, including the original series and the upcoming reboot featuring Jonah Ray, Felicia Day and Patton Oswalt.

    Heard of it. Never watched it.

    Someone give me a rundown of what this is about, and if it's worth watching. I'm a massive sci-fi nut so could be a goer.

    Oh man, haha. Basically, it started as an independent public access show in the very late 80s that was then picked up by Comedy Central. It involves the creator/host, Joel (Mike in the later seasons) being shot into space by his evil bosses and forced to watch the worst B-movies they can find. He builds some robots on the ship for company and they provide commentary/riff over these awful movies and basically make jokes throughout the entire thing. It's a cult classic -- more for nostalgic comedy lovers and midnight movie fans than science fiction -- but definitely worth watching regardless.

    The episodes posted above were good starting points for me. I just purchased the Turkey Day Marathon box set and I'm saving a couple episodes for Christmas Eve. I wish the box sets weren't so expensive.

    When is the reboot supposed to happen, and in what capacity? Is it a whole new run of episodes or just a one off kind of thing or what...

    2017 sometime, on Netflix, it's a new run (14 episodes, I believe).

    TOMORROW

    or now, if you were a backer of an appropriate level

    I've been busy so I never got around to most of the season even though I have access but I did watch the first episode - it took a bit to get used to the Jonah/the new voices and cast and not everything hit but I enjoyed it a ton nonetheless. I might get another through tonight but I'm definitely going to finally dig in deeper this weekend.

    see ya

    This is already so likeable. The voices will take time to grow on me but the tone is right and that's what matters.

    I'm just so tired of thinking about everything Prestigious

    Excited to go home, make some popcorn, and enjoy some MT3K after work tonight. Just a few more hours.

    Yeah, this rules. I was cheesing so hard during the giant monster rap in the first episode.

    This is awesome. I'm really ignorant to MST3K and JUST watched the '93 episode with "Manos: The Hands of Fate" the other day and thought it was hysterical. Had no idea they were rebooting it, looks like I found a great show to dive into.

    One episode down.. a ton more to go
