“In the not-too-distant future, next Sunday A.D., there was a guy named Joel, not too different than you or me…”

Mystery Science Theater 3000 aired from 1988 to 1999, immediately becoming a cult hit. My husband was a HUGE fan. Joel Robinson (played by show creator Joel Hodgson) was shot into space and forced to watch bad movies while a mad scientist and his crony monitored his mind. Joel built some lovable robot sidekicks to help him keep his sanity. What made it seriously unique was just the way the characters watched the movies and the commentary we got to watch/listen to. Really funny stuff.

In 2015, fans of the series donated to a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign to reboot the show for a brand new, 14-episode season. Original creator Joel Hodgson will be joined by comedian Jonah Ray (also known as Jonah Heston) as the new host and Felicia Day (Geek & Sundry) as “Kinga Forrester.”

If you’ve never seen the show before, Netflix has Season One up if you’re interested!

The complete new season comes out on Netflix tonight at 3:01AM/2:01AMc.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, MasterChef: Junior, Trial & Error, The Great Indoors, Chicago Med, The Amazing Race, Beat Bobby Flay, & Impractical Jokers.
