Mystery Science Theater 3000

One of my guilty pleasures from the 1990’s was the TV series, “Mystery Science Theater 3000.”  For those who never watched this program, the show featured a man and two robots who watched (really bad) B-movies, usually science fiction, while making funny comments about the scenes they were watching. It was, at times, halarious!

Here’s a few compilation videos that somebody put together on youtube. Enjoy!

    Yeah, I watched that show a few times. The 3 “front row commentators” were as you said, at times amusing. Problem was, again as you said, the movies were really bad “B” rated stuff. So bad I don’t think I ever watched the show to the end. I’m not into self inflicted torture. LOL

      Their running commentary was really the focus/attraction of the program, rather than the movies they were watching. The worse they were, the better! The underlying premise of the series was that this guy (and the robots) were trapped on a space ship, held captive by an evil scientist, and forced to watch bad movies in an attempt to determine how much it took to drive a person insane.

      I found their wise-cracking observations very funny, and very entertaining!

    I used to watch this show all the time and rented the video releases. My (then) young sons used to love watching this when I got divorved and they would come spend the weekends in my crappy, tiny apartment at the time. The wise-cracking robots were the best part of the show, but they managed to find some real doozies as far as really awful movies to lampoon.
