I like the shorts they riff because I feel like because it's a short burst; they seem to be a little funnier. There are times in the movies where they aren't exactly funny.

But, that doesn't mean all movies are like that.


Yeah... sometimes the jokes don't land, or sometimes they pick a movie that doesn't fall into the territory of "enjoyably bad" and is just bad and not very watchable.

I don't think I've seen a full episode. Those movies are so awful, I don't know if I could sit through an entire one. :s

I understand that... there are some though, that like I said fall more into the area of "enjoyably bad" wtf-ery. Or you could always just stick to watching the shorts.

The "enjoyably bad" movies that I like on MST3K are Manos: The Hands of Fate and Space Mutiny.

Ah, Manos, a true classic. :P Any mention of that movie never fails to make me smile.

Joel was okay in that riff; but I really wonder how Mike would've fared had TV's Frank and Dr. Forrester gave Manos to Mike instead.

Unfortunately, I think that's a gimmie considering the circumstances (it's been 15 years or so since the last episode aired). Joel's still going to be apart of the writing staff.

Joel has stated that there will be a new MAD and a new host if the MST3K Kickstarter is successful.

Joel has already tabbed who he wants to be the new host of MST3K; Jonah Ray from the Nerdist podcast. He'd be playing the role of Jonah Heston, a regular guy in a yellow jumpsuit, not too different then you or me. (Joel's color was red and Mike's was green.) The MAD has yet to be chosen.

Joel set a 24-hour time limit to break 2 million and they broke it with plenty of time to spare so the show will at least have 3 episodes. Also, the Kickstarter has a flexible payment schedule. You'd have until December the 11th.

All right. An update.

Felicia Day, from the YouTube Channel Geek and Sundry will be playing the role of Kinga Forrester, the new MAD. Kinga will be the daughter of former MAD, Dr. Clayton Forrester. From the beginning, Joel wanted the next MAD to be a woman; as he really liked what Mary Jo Pehl did as Pearl Forrester; the MAD from Seasons 8 through 10.

Also, the roles of Crow T. Robot and Tom Servo have been filed. Hampton Yount will be playing Crow and Baron Vaughn as Tom Servo. Both sound like sound-likes to to Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy to me, but Joel has said they weren't picked to be "sound-alikes".

There will be a Henchman, possibly like TV's Frank yet to be released.

At the time of this posting; there has been a little over 3 million donated with 2 weeks to go. There is less then 300,000 dollars to go to ensure there will be 6 new episodes of MST3K.

Joel has revealed to us the newest MAD. Felicia Day's assistant is Patton Oswalt! Patton Oswalt will be playing the role of the son of TV's Frank [TV's Son of TV's Frank] who was played by Frank Coniff). [Felicia Day's character Kinga Forrester is the daughter of Dr. Clayton Forrester, who was played by Trace Beaulieu.]

Joel stated that Oswalt; who is a big MST3K fan was thought of to be brought on as an episode producer, but he decided with the reboot that Patton would be better in front of the screen and not behind it.

Also, the mark for 6 episodes has been breached! Currently the MST3K Kickstarter has a little over 3.3 million dollars donated with 11 days to go. Time may run out on the donation total before it reaches 9 episodes or the maximum of 12; but at least they've got 6 episodes to produce, shoot and air.

The Kickstarter is completed and was a resounding success. 48,270 individual backers backed the project to bring back MST3K, totaling over 5.5 million dollars in total donations; meaning that there will be 12 episodes of MST3K, plus two additional episodes; one being a holiday special.

It was not without the Kickstarter backers; without them this reboot would not be possible. A whole new generation of people will be shown MST3K, and a whole new generation of fans will follow.

WE'VE GOT PRODUCTION SIGN!

This is a huge update! Joel recently announced that the reboot for Mystery Science Theater 3000 had just started production. The series will be shown on Netflix, as they had picked up the series for its intended Kickstarter run. So; at least MST3K won't get "Screwed by the Networks" for a third time. Hopefully.

Anyway, no date has been announced for the series to air on Netflix when the episodes finish production; so stay tuned!

WE'VE GOT NETFLIX SIGN!

Joel has confirmed that the reboot of MST3K will air its first episode on Netflix on April 14th, 2017; which is a Friday.

I didn't back this project for more then $10; so I don't get to see the "pilot" of the reboot and I don't have Netflix. But, that's not a problem. I wanted to back this project because I liked to watch old movies and shorts of MST3K on YouTube. But, maybe sometime soon I will watch the episodes if I can.

I've been stoked ever since I saw a clip from Starcrash in the trailer.

I decided to watch most of the new ones out of order. There are a few differences, but I think it stays true to the original series. Sometimes it's a bit jarring to see the new effects in the theater segments.
